Amazingly brilliant book. With three chronic diseases and a family history of heart attack and stroke on both sides, I was apprehensive about the book, but the reviews for it made me reconsider. Despite all my health issues, I haven't felt so healthy for many years. It's all the food I love to eat, and have now reincorporated back into my life after trying Paleo (and getting sicker and sicker). Now I'm brimming with energy, smiling, and living, not just existing. Best money I have ever spent.
Dr Greger has written a book to change peoples lives from the inside out. He has changed my whole digestive tract within 2 weeks because of eating a plant based diet. It is wonderful to be pain free and eating such high amounts of nutrition. My complete blood picture taken last week has improved on every level. Cholesterol, glucose, uric acid and thyroid to name a few. I found the book riveting to read. So many facts supported by science. Anyone who follows this plant based protocol will have the best chance if a long and healthy life. A nutrition bible for everyone.
If I could rate this book higher I would. An absolutely amazing book. I highly recommend it to everyone, absorb the information and give it a try. I gave it a shot and have been going for 2 months now. I have never felt better.
I'd recommend this book, not only is it informative, it has studies done that prove the truth of eating a whole plant based diet is the way we should eat. I've been eating this way for 3 years now and this book is confirmation of what I'm consuming is right. Also has lots of nutritional facts I didn't know so will incorporate into my diet. Thoroughly recommended.
As a health practitioner I have always believed that what goes in the mouth is the greatest contributor - or otherwise - to a long and healthy life. To date, it has always been difficult to find reliable information about diet. Dr Gregor has changed that. His research now gives me the utmost confidence in making science based recommendations to my clients. In short, his evidence now supports my belief, that changes to one's diet is possible, desirable and life enhancing.
..this is the one to buy! Organised by disease or health problem 'type' such as "lung diseases", "heart disease", "diabetes" etc, the author and the enormous team of qualified volunteers take great care in doing critical meta-analyses of all current research between food, health, and disease. The information and findings are presented in an easily readable format, with all research properly referenced. I have also found that the author, Dr Michael Greger, is happy to update and amend the findings on the nutritionfacts.org website when more compelling evidence is found. Highly recommend this book for any nutritionists, dieticians, medical practitioners, counsellors and coaches working with people who are struggling with ill-health.
Dr. Michael Greger's writing style is engaging. Not only is the book packed with science but also quite humorous which makes it fun to read. The book really changed my perspective on diet and made me reflect on my own. I'm 20 and for 2 years straight I ate vegetables maybe 3 times. I only ate Chicken and white rice, 3-4 times per day. After amping up my vegetable intake for 2 weeks now, there's a massive difference. My energy levels are sustained, mood is stable, tight trapezius muscles aren't tight any more, I feel light and focused. My favourite book on nutrition!
Michael Greger gives hope to those experiencing life threatening diseases by advice on the best type of diet for each specific disease. All of his advice is based on scientific research, not hearsay. A thoroughly interesting book that gives hope to those who read it. Recommended.
A wealth of information here in this book. So many references to scientifically proven facts. So much world wide research, so much proof, wow. This book has life changed my food (and beverage) intake for ever. Thanks so much to this amazing book.
