Publisher's Summary

During his 28 years as a holistic practitioner and health expert on syndicated TV and radio, Dr. David Friedman has interviewed hundreds of world-renowned doctors and best-selling authors. From proponents of a vegan, paleo, mediterranean diet to a gluten-free and low-carb diet, the opinions are as different as night and day.

After becoming frustrated with all the conflicting research and opinions, Dr. Friedman wrote Food Sanity, which explores all the fads, facts, and fiction. Using a common science meets commonsense approach, this groundbreaking book finally answers the big question: What the heck are we supposed to eat?

Listeners will discover never-before-heard nutritional and dieting advice that will ensure they get the maximum benefits from their food and dietary supplements. Food Sanity offers a definitive blueprint on how to eat in the unhealthiest developed country in the world ... the good ole' USA.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Vegan Propaganda

Very unscientific, extremely opinionated, vegan propaganda. He spends way too much time arguing that Neanderthals didn’t eat meat because they don’t have claws. Randomly throws in real bone research that says cave men ate 40% protein (moderate intake). Then makes the conclusion that the lack of claws is the best evidence that cave men were vegetarians. Very biased book.

Informative book, but consume with a grain of salt

Informative book, but consume with a grain of salt. While Dr Friedman knows his subject very well, I am very skeptical of anyone who tries to, even indirectly as is the case in this book, to promote holistic supplements. This isn’t the point of the book, but one of the examples that I’d take with a huge chuck of salt. However, I would still recommend the book to friends.

Best book on nutrition I’ve read

This book is amazing. It sheds light on America’s greed in the food industry while providing you with the natural swaps to all of the unnecessary things we consume. Must read if you are trying to progress in your health journey.

Nothing new to see here

First he spends an inordinate amount of time talking about what he is going to be talking about. Then he goes into elaborate detail of how scientific studies contradict each other. Bottom line: don't eat meat and dairy. *yawn*

SCAM!!!! BS Don't waste your money/Credits

The Narrator was fine my issue is with the text. The book immediately sounds like a scam from the get go. The author says you can heal diseases by eating correctly. They also say they'll teach you to "follow the money" behind studies done by scientists.

Basically the author is saying you should only listen to them because everyone else is in a secret conspiracy.

A good book but...

All the good information but after reading this book, there’s nothing much left to eat. Everything is dangerous or cancerous.

Eye opening

I found this very informative and eye opening. Good information on how to eat right and take care of the one body we all have. It’s very scary how corrupt our government really is when it comes to food and medicine.

Good eating

I’ve tried to educate myself about healthy eating for several years. A friend introduced me to this book. Wow I was blown out of the water by the information I learned. Some I’d already begin to put into practice but I learned so much about eating to keep my body healthy. I’d recommend the book to anyone who wants to eat correctly for what their body needs & was made for.
