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.

Pseudoscience

He is a chiropractor, not an RD or a Nutritionist.
He, not joking at all, suggests that athletes can/should eat 10-15 bananas after a workout.
This is not a book I would recommend to anyone and a quick google search will reveal the lack of credibility, the lack of validity, and that Graham is strictly promoting a fad 80/10/10 diet to make a profit.

Pseudoscience waste of time

The author clearly has a bias for a vegan diet and supports it very weakly with anecdote, pseudoscience, and scientifically false assertions. The chapter on fat - nearly every point made has been soundly refuted by proper science. Don't bother with this unless you just want to feed a vegan confirmation bias.

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!

Pointless

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Read this:"eat Bananas"
OK, now you have no need to read the book.
Absolutely shocking waste of time.

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.
