Best I’ve ever felt

I read Douglas’s other book called the 80/10/10 diet over five years ago when I first went vegan. My husband and I ate strictly how he describes for a little over a year. My husband lost 100 pounds and I got rid of multiple autoimmune symptoms. Even my seizures went away. Then we started eating cooked food, vegan junkfood and slowly didn’t feel all that great anymore. For the past 4 years we tried many other vegan diets and nothing made us feel as good as eating raw 80/10/10. We read this book to learn more and give us a reminder of why we need to go back to eating this way. Happy to say we’re back on track and feeling great! My husband did over the past four years regain about 30 pounds from all of the junk food but is already 10 pounds down! And the main issue I had was a couple autoimmune symptoms popping up such as swelling and mucus production after eating. On this diet those are nonexistent.

A must have and do book to get healthy.

To get healthy and have high energy you must follow and put this book in practice. Following doctor Graham simple ways of explaining real nutrition for life is a must Be - Do = Have. I highly recommend everyone to put this in to practice.

All the author talked about was bananas

Would you try another book from Douglas N. Graham and/or Brett Barry?

No. The entire content of the book could have been communicated in 10 minutes. Eat fruit and vegetables and 20-30 bananas at a time.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Already started it. The Way of the Seal.

How could the performance have been better?

It was just terrible. Nutrition Made Clear by Roberta Anding provides clear examples of what to do, what not to do and why. This was too repetitive.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.

This Book Will Teach You Nothing

There is little to no information given to help increase nutrition or performance value. A very opinionated author who uses scare tactics and conspiracy theories to self promote and mention how everyone else is doing things wrong and we should do things his way. Granted, I only made it halfway through the book, but at 11 chapters in with nothing new learned it was clear this book was a waste of time and I had gotten tired of his negative outlook at everything.

Love this book!

Being someone interested in health and nutrition, I really appreciate how this book brings clarity and simplicity from someone who truly understands health and well-being. I've been Dr. Graham's fan for over 8 years, and I know that his message (unlike many other raw food teachers' that were popular back in the day) has always been the most profound, made most sense and hasn't changed over the years. His own personal results and those of his followers speak for themselves!

I regret buying this book.

This book can’t decide if it is written for the layman or academics, starts off with an extended rant about the nutrition industry and then offers very little else in substance. It thinks extremely high of itself despite not offering any useful information. It makes quite a lot of generalised statements regarding food and focuses it’s details on irrelevant facts. While constantly enforcing it’s “eat whole foods” agenda. As someone who eats well and knows a little about nutrition I’d like my money back please.

I liked listening to it

Ok. It was good and informative, but what I didn't like is the fact that it pushes you to go vegan or raw vegan. From what I understood that is the only way to get the performance. I took everything with a pinch of salt and I will actually use some of the info.

Totally bias

Is this guy on commission for selling bananas?? To say all athlete should be eating between 10 and 20 bananas a day is obscene and where are your facts to say that it’s proven that the more successful athletes are all vegan/vegetarian?? Been personal training for 8 years and 90% of this book completely contradicts everything I’ve ever learnt.
