I have for a while decided that low carb is probably the way forward,but have somehow never fully grasped the why's and hows, so have fallen flat again and again. This books explains it all in such a way ,that I now understand completely why this works and see that it is the way our bodies have been desperate for us to *return* to eating.
From the first few chapters, I have changed the way I eat already without any will power or force. You will just understand what your body wants and all cravings have gone.You will also discover the way we have all been sold down the river by polititions and big food companies, who in the interest of increasing profits, sold us a completely false set of healthy eating guidelines which have ruined the life and future of millions. This knowledge alone made me so angry I was determined to not be another one of their victims.
The second part of the book will guide you by the hand back to places and things we have forgotten about but feel like home when you get there. I feel like my outlook of life has changed for the better and for good. It is something you must read for yourself.
Lastly, all this is done with wisdom, fun and great humour! I laughed out loud loads of times and was really sad when I finished it. Please John, write some more books! I miss you! x
If you just want to get back 'in touch' with your body, with a view to being healthier, fitter and happier, this is an essential, wonderful book.
If you are interested in personal development, and want to go on your own journey towards your goals and dreams, this is an essential, wonderful book.
In short, I just can't recommend it highly enough. You have never read a book like this before, because no-one has ever written a book like this before. It's enjoyable and easy-to-read, yet it will transform your understanding of many things (food, health, fitness, the mind... and much else besides) and keep you entertained at the same time!
The first part is primarily about weight loss, and how to achieve your ideal weight. I have read countless books on this subject, and this is one of the very best ever written. It's fun, easy to read and easy to understand. It isn't about going on a special diet or trying to develop stronger willpower. It isn't full of latest food fads and daft suggestions. It's about understanding the problem in a way you have never understood it before, and realising how your body works, how you became overweight in the first place, and how you can undo the damage (permanently) in the best, easiest and healthiest way possible. I doubt this subject has ever been explained more clearly or more successfully.
The second part is about life, self-fulfilment, changing negative behaviours into positive ones and joy. Some may see it as a sort of spiritual text, others will appreciate it in a secular way, but it's worth reading whatever your beliefs and whatever you'd like to achieve in your life.
No-one has anything to lose by buying this amazing book. Just about everyone has something to gain from it. Highly recommended!
I was put on a high-protein diet as I was diagnosed with a pre-diabetic condition, I have lost over just over 2 stone/30lbs/14kgs really quickly and easily, but now I've got another stone to go and I've got complacent, so I started reading this on my kindle to re-motivate me.
How many exclamation marks can a person get on one page?!
The book could have been half as long without the dribble, e.g. likening science names to Shakespeare - practically every time a new one's introduced. Also the irritating repeating of insulin's job - I'm overweight, not stupid. I wish there was a summary page for each key point, to refer to again without having to scan through the bulk of useless text to get to the good stuff.
It feels like the book is written to appeal to an attention-deficit teenager, with informal English, 'gonna', so called 'cool' phrases: 'lulz' and the authors' asides. Which makes it less appealing to a broad range of potential other readers.
I can take some motivational speak, but there was too much in this and it comes over as sickly sweet as the high carb food we're urged to avoid.
On the other hand, the positive affirmations audio link was very helpful and focuses you on what to do. I'm sure the constant playing will help 'brainwash' me to eat better and be a better me.Read more ›
