Are you confused by what your cholesterol levels really say about your health? Don't you wish someone could just spell it out in simple English and tell you what, if anything, you need to do to improve your heart and overall health? That's precisely what Cholesterol Clarity is designed to do. Jimmy Moore, a prolific and highly respected health blogger and podcaster, interviewed 28 of the world's top health experts from various fields to give you the complete lowdown on cholesterol. He and his co-author, family practitioner and researcher Dr. Eric Westman, have broken down this critical information for you to know what is most important and what is not.
You won't find this kind of comprehensive, cutting-edge, expert-driven cholesterol information all in one place anywhere else. Did you know, for instance, that you don't have to eat a low-fat diet, take a statin drug, or eat more of the so-called "healthy" whole grains to get your cholesterol levels where they need to be? Learn what really works from the best experts on the subject. Cholesterol Clarity will not only tell you what your LDL, HDL, triglycerides, and other key cholesterol markers really mean, but it will arm you with what you can do nutritionally to become as optimally healthy as you can possibly be!
Featured Experts: Dr. William Davis, Dr. Ronald Krauss, Dr. Uffe Ravnskov, Dr. Robert Lustig, Dr. Duane Graveline, Dr. Jonny Bowden, Dr. Chris Masterjohn, Dr. Malcolm Kendrick, Dr. John Briffa, Dr. Thomas Dayspring, Dr. Fred Pescatore, Gary Taubes and over a dozen more!

Cholesterol has always been a mystery to me, one I have to pray I got a good report on. Now I have a better understanding of it. How to convince my GP that if need be I don't want medication, that will be testing. I will keep this in my library and play it another couple of times.
I loved this book and it was one of the rare books that I couldn't stop listening to even while I was in the shower.
Well done Jimmy! You never seize to impress!
"Life Saving Book - bought 4 hard copies to share"
This book will save lives. It was just the start of a journey through other books along the line of the damage done to our bodies via grains / carbs / sugar and the healing and healthful benefits of good fats. The programming the public has received in the past decades has been upside down and backwards and as a result many people have suffered with inflammation, heart disease, diabetes, alzheimers, cancer, and shortened lives with much of their budget spent on pharmaceuticals when simple knowledge of how food works in the body would have led to health, happier days and ease of movement.
How many people suffer because they don't know what is in this book and the other books along this line of knowledge? How many families have been broken due to family members dying, or suffering long illness or loss of everything they have worked for to pay medical bills?
Audible has numerous books now along this line, and while the audio editing of this book is poor, the message alone is valuable. I gave this book in hardcover to people who have need for it. One person (the smartest of the group) has eliminated 2 prescriptions so far and is feeling less aches and pains and has improved her quality of life. Two people are not "readers" so the books given are unused. One person skims and says the message is valid, but does not have the will power to change their diet.
This book can change, improve, and save lives by providing people with the power to understand their bodies, how lab tests are used to justify the broad use of pharmaceuticals, and empowers people to change.
Some doctors are up-to-date and understand this information. Too many still don't. It is up to the proactive person to take personal responsibility for what they eat and change their health. This book is a foundational understanding. There are other books that carry on and give great dietary information - also on Audible.
"Lose the mouth noises"
The audio quality of this book is awful. The content is fabulous and very informative however it was a struggle just to listen to it. The mouth noises alone are enough to make someone go in sane.
"A good book, but"
I think its information is good. It references many other books that I have listened to on audible.com. So it's not just an author providing his own claims or theories. He also has an expert who helps him with writing the book.
The book as a whole is very informative and very simplistic. That makes for easy comprehension. I love the clarity notes with the sound because it alerts you enough to pay attention to the supporting information to back up the claim.
The quality of the book is the main issue. Some segments are great some segments should have been redone. The audio quality goes from sounding like it was done in the studio to sounding like it was done in someone's bathroom. There were also too many long pauses between sections. And finally, the narrator has a bad habit of smacking his lips between sentences. The smacking ceased the further into the book you get.
No real reactions other than getting annoyed (smacking, long pauses) or having those aha moments.
Overall if you can tolerate the smacking, long pauses, and changes in audio quality, the book is very informative and comprehensible. I think anyone who wants to better understand cholesterol should get the book.
Yes I would. Great simple explanation of cholesterol.
The Great cholesterol Myth. Similar
I listen to his podcast
I Love Jimmy Moore's podcasts and general view, however, this book was very repetitive and did not contain much detailed info. It was mostly "bumper sticker" information that we already know. The book could have been 1/4 of the length and conveyed the same info.
Yes, it was easy to follow....too easy
the almost 1 hour of listening to every name of doctor/expert interviewed for this book along with their bio. SKIP TO 1 HOUR AND 10 MINUTES, TO START THE BOOK.
It is probably a better book to have in hard copy to reference back to some of the information.
"A Must Read"
This book is for anyone looking for straight answers about cholesterol and it's role in our heart health.
"A great book for the TRUE story of cholesterol"
Being a Keto dieter cholesterol is very important to me, with that means being able to truly understand what your numbers mean in a world where the authorities are anything but truthful or correct with their info. Highly recommend to anybody worried about their cholesterol levels regardless of the reason.
This book is informative & the info is stunning compared to our main stream thoughts on cholesterol. However, if you've read Keto Clarity there is really no need to read this book unless you just really want to go further in depth on cholesterol.
"Repetitive and very choppy!"
The right message but poorly delivered. Told like a children's book. Jimmy combines random vagaries from his podcast experts and personal anecdotes until he meets the length of a book.
Very interesting stuff! I learned so much about the lipid panel testing. I will not be so concerned with my ldl now.
"As it says, great clarity"
As with everything we read. you have to put faith in what they are saying. this book feels truthful and so the information contained is invaluable and I would highly recommend.
I prefer reading this book because as much as I love Jimmy Moore, I don't really enjoy his reading style. Or maybe it's because the sound is a little too clear, hearing him swallow etc.
So much good info here. Should be read by anyone with an interest in their health and cholesterol tests.
Jimmy collates all the current info from many experts in the field.
