Publisher's Summary

Whether you are seeing a doctor, a nutritionist, or a trainer, all of them advise eating more protein. Foods, drinks, and supplements are loaded with extra protein. Many people use protein for weight control while others believe it gives them more energy. Now, weight loss expert Dr. Garth Davis asks, "Is all this protein making us healthier?"
The answer, he emphatically argues, is no. Too much protein is actually making us sick, fat, and tired, according to Dr. Davis. If you are getting adequate calories in your diet, there is no such thing as protein deficiency. The healthiest countries in the world eat far less protein than we do, and yet we have an entire nation getting sicker by the day.
As a surgeon, Dr. Davis was frustrated by the ever-increasing number of sick and overweight patients, but it wasn't until his own health scare that he realized he could do something about it. Combining cutting-edge research with his hands-on patient experience, this groundbreaking book reveals the truth about the dangers of protein and shares a proven approach to weight loss, health, and longevity.

Okay, okay. I got it. Stop!!!

STORY (health/diet) - So this is a very informative book. My relatively low review is mostly because I was unrealistic with my expectations when I bought it. I'm very interested in health/diet information and I have been contemplating adopting a vegetarian lifestyle. I was thinking this book might give me the facts and ammunition I need to give up eating meat. So what was I expecting other than lots of scientific facts and reason why I shouldn't eat meat? Duh!

At any rate, this book is chock FULL of technical tests, scientific facts and information. The last 3-4 hours were the most helpful, especially Chapter 10. That part of the book has more simplified, useful information for the lay listener.

PERFORMANCE - Good job, nothing special.

OVERALL - If you're interested in lots of very technical reasons why meat is bad for you, look no further! Just be aware that you may get more than you asked for!
