To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Although there was some interesting info regarding the fat cell itself, this book is basically a low-carb, low-calorie prescription. Not a single reference in the entire book (despite some large claims by the author). Really frustrating book actually. Basically insulin the baddie, carbs spike insulin, so avoid carbs (except vegetables and maybe some oats in the morning). Eat a palm size portion of lean protein, a tiny bit of fat, and as many fibrous vegetables as you like. Make your three meals a day like this. This nutrition plan is not even close to being sustainable. And let's hope calories don't count because you won't be getting many. I liked the message of eating whole foods, but the nutrition suggestions are just not realistic or sustainable.
I loved the level of detail yet simplicity of how the book dealt with complex concepts. However I was a bit disappointed with the ending - the actual meal planning. I also would have loved to see some references - especially when it came to the amount of carbs to eat plus why fat was deemed so bad. What about the merits of the ketogenic diet and fasting - which seems to be now supported by research as being very effective in tackling both obesity as well as type 2 diabetes?
