Great inspiring book that puts things right in perpective We eat crap and we need to turn this around so we can get a better life quality by getting healthier.
Filled with real life examples, sometimes personal and touching, this book provides great advices or suggestions on what to eat to give you a chance to improve your health, you life quality, and maybe get a chance to heal Obviously, he prones and is in favor of a plant based diet, vegetalian I would think that a better balance overall, and avoiding a maximum of bad food too much bad sugar , too much salt, grease and processed food , would be a good start.
It all depends where you are, also But it ends the same If you are sick, you may need to take drastic measures If you are well, or not too bad, you need to take steps.
I really like the suggestions and the input from this MD and I truly agree with him that the answer should and may not be in the pills and drugs that only puts a sometimes dangerous patch on something that needs healthier and safer remedy.
This is a book that needs to be read and shared with all your loved ones Recommended.
This is education.
I learned so much about the latest research with the various illnesses and disease from this audio book I learned what foods are good for you and which to avoid My gastroenterologist recommended this book and it has changed my life for the better All the recommendations are hard to do all at once for many my family found We had to build a repertoire of yummy plant based recipes before we could fully commit Dr Gregor has a free app that you can use to try to ensure you aim to hit all health food and water goals The research is life changing Plant based eating is not some trend and this book explains not only why but how to start moving in the rights direction My wife and I started making small steps toward a plant based diet about 8 years ago and we can tell you that the ideas conveyed in this book are right on target We have experienced it firsthand.
The so called science presented in this book has been debunked in recent studies I would recommend books by Robert H Lustig and Food What the Heck Should I Eat by Dr Mark Hyman MD instead.
Eating meat won t harm you And eating fat is not as bad as historically thought Those are old theories and it has been proven many times to be bad science It is sugar and especially fructose that ruins your health.
Eating plants is great but that is only a part of a healthy diet I can t understand why this book has so many great reviews I do think Dr Gregor is a rock star in the health community If I have a question first thing I look up the info on his website.
This is a great book, easy to read and super informative A MUST read
