Publisher's Summary

Ever wished you could eat whatever fast food you liked, take no exercise, and be slim and healthy? Well you can't. But you can do the next best thing, which is to enjoy healthy food even more than you enjoy fast food, and enjoy exercising even more than you enjoy sitting on the sofa. Diet and Fitness Explained is the book that gets under the skin of our eating habits, and provides a simple, easy to understand guide to the entire riddle of diet and fitness.

Meh

Didn’t really enjoy the content or the narration. Felt a bit pompous. Nothing new learned.

Direct & Straight to the point

Amazing book!

I started my weight loss journey about 7 months ago & I’m down 44 lbs. My riding instructor recommended this book to me a few weeks ago & I thoroughly enjoyed it! There is a lot of great information here that I found incredibly helpful for the next stages of my journey. I highly recommend this book!

Excellent direct writiting

I love his direct style of writing. I listened to diet and exercise explained because his first book alcohol explained. His direct clear organized approach to whatever subject I now consider a benchmark to measure other books against. I hope he continues writing since his books have been helpful to me and I expect to others. If you are interested in a subject he is writing about you will finish his books with a clear understanding of the relevant details.

Love this book

Really well explained and as always his matter of fact way of writing is very welcoming, never what you should do just merely the facts and then you get to decide. Lots of stuff I didn't know, I actually will listen again just to solidify my knowledge.

Truth!

I agree with every word. Willpower is not needed to make healthy food choices. By understanding what your body needs and how great it feels when you make healthy food choices you will no longer crave processed food.

Very Good, already applying info

Very good information and easy to apply ideas. This book will make you healthier as the ideas are simple but still motivating. Great presentation of basic truths of the topic. I wish there were more books that are this motivating tjat speak this plainly on diet nutrition and excercise.

Just as perfect as Alcohol Explained

Succinct, educational, non-biased and easy to incorporate into your life immediately. This is a must have. I'll be listening to this every once in a while for a lifetime. Thank you, William Porter, for another amazing book.

Very interesting and informational

Very good read! Learned a lot and will likely listen to this book again as there is a lot of good information that will take time to sink in. I would recommend this book to anyone curious about diet and fitness. This has already and will continue to change my eating and exercise habits.

Excellent resource

As somebody who has struggled with their diet and weight for over 40 years I found this book most helpful. The narration is clear and the messages are simple but also powerful. The timing of me reading the book helped as I chose to look at my alcohol consumption recently as well and I have found my diet is also much improved, as though my taste buds have some how changed!

Everyone needs a William Porter.

I love this guy, he’s full of brilliant advice and makes you THINK about what you’re putting into your mouth, be it drink or food.
If you enjoyed this ‘Alcohol Explained’ is an excellent listen too.
Thank you Mr Porter your audio books have been a light in the dark days of lockdown and have definitely helped me stay positive 👍

Very clear and cuts through the normal chaff associated with diet and fitness.

Essential reading to understand diet & fitness in absolute clarity. A fantastic companion piece to Alcohol Explained.

Great and relatively short book on how to best change your eating habits. It gives you the recipe for a better life, but you will have to do the cooking. I'd recommend it to anyone who's looking to feel and look better.

wonderful easy and interesting listen

this book is a very helpful tool for life in general and made me think about things in a new way. I happen to already have many healthy habits and this book helped me understand them more as well as know where Ive been going wrong until now, why, and how to easily reverse that.

the one thing I would have liked would have been additional chapters on the food that is good for us , to know a bit more about which specific foods do what. the part of this book about that is shorter than I would have liked. otherwise it's great.

Factually incorrect in many aspects

The book is well read and clear.

Unfortunately, the author is incorrect in several aspects of his explanations of biochemistry, particularly the descriptions of digestion, blood sugar management and how they’re affected by the consumption of different food groups.

I had high hopes for this book, but feel very disappointed with the lack of accurate information.
