The narrator speaks in a way that sounds so forced, it's a major distraction. Choppy and over-enthusiastic is the way I'd describe it.
The content is extremely basic. Anything substantive is stated as fact in conclusory form, without explanation.
Would you listen to Diabetes: Understanding Diabetes, Prevention & Reversal with a Sirt Food & Plant Based Diet again? Why?
Yes! This is an excellent resource for anyone over weight, borderline diabetes or with Type II diabetes. As John Hodges and Ted Gif point out, over 90% of these cases are preventable! By eating a more plant based diet and reducing saturated fats and sugars in our diet, most of us can prevent obesity as well as type II diabetes. It is about managing a healthy lifestyle.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Diabetes: Understanding Diabetes, Prevention & Reversal with a Sirt Food & Plant Based Diet?
The authors do an amazing job of explaining glycogenesis, Ketoacidosis, and the role of hormones such as leptin, insulin and glucagon in blood glucose levels. People inherit the number of fat cells from their parents, however, weight gain in adulthood is mainly due to adipocyte size meaning our lifestyle and how much we eat. 90% of us can control our weight gain and type II Diabetes.I am very familiar with Diabetes as it is in my family.
My niece died at an early age (in her 30’s) of complications from Type I diabetes (autoimmune form). This could have been prevented had she followed the advice of these authors by following a healthy diet and drinking far less alcohol. Back then I knew that if she had just followed the guidelines in this book and taken care of herself she would still be alive today. My older sister had uterine cancer (now in remission) and she now has type II diabetes. Again an unhealthy lifestyle has led to her illnesses. I am sending her a copy of this book!
What does R. Paul Matty bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
His tone, pace, pitch, and enthusiasm keeps the listener interested throughout the entire book. This is extremely tough to do when dealing with complex biological processes. His voice is easy to listen to and he emphasizes certain parts while changing his tone at the right places as if he wrote the book. It is obvious he has a grasp of the material and believes in it. I wish all of my professors had lectured like him!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes! I actually listened to it twice because the information was so helpful and the narrator made it so easy to listen to this technical information. I was impressed.
Any additional comments?
The authors talk about keeping a food diet and eating healthy alternatives such as raisins and nuts instead of chips or chocolate. They discuss complex carbohydrates such as whole grains and spelt flour. While “no one size fits all”, by eating healthy, eliminating or moderating animal products and following a healthy diet with lots of veggies and fruits people can live a healthy and vibrant life! I highly recommend getting the book and adopting the healthy lifestyle behaviors! Awesome resource for anyone wanting to live a better life!! ☺
