I've been a registered dietitian for a couple of decades. I hold a masters in human nutrition. I had NO IDEA that much of what I learned was based on such awful science and dogma. I've been eating in a much different way (easily took off 20 pounds in 5 weeks), and I feel better physically AND emotionally. This book should be used in medical schools as well as in nutrition education. I've looked up a few of the citations, and I'm overwhelmed by the amount of research (and truth) found on the pages of this book. I recommend "Good Calories, Bad Calories," "The Case against sugar" (both Taubes). Then, take a look at Lustig & Ludwig (endocrinologists). Great information!
Though this book, which was recommended by my internist, lends a little toward the scientific, it works. A scientist wants to explain the proof if his conclusions, hence the plethora of studies quoted, etc. It makes sense, even to the non scientific mind. And, again, it works!
Great book! Is it possible to provide the appendix list of foods to avoid and foods to eat more of?
Positives: Well researched, interesting studies, felt good about making changes to my diet Negative: WAY TOO LONG. Seemed at times repetitious with information overload.
Bottomline: Cut Carbs, eat more protein with vegetables
Got lost in the details. Too much proving the point. Good I formation but presented in a hard to follow format.
The narrator has a nasal voice and speaks slowly. I listened at 1.25x speed. The book is a long explanation of the very restricted ketogenic diet.
This is supposed to be a lay person's version of his theories about weight gain and yet he blabbers on and on and on about every study that was ever done and why they are all wrong. Could have been one disk long: "It's about Carbs, Stupid" with explanation of why that's true (it's working for me)
