Publisher's Summary

With scientific research, her own chemistry background, and the traditional diets of our not-so-distant ancestors as her guides, Dee McCaffrey casts new light on an age-old wisdom: Eating foods in their closest-to-natural form is the true path to sustained weight loss and, in fact, the remedy for almost any health problem.
We are so far removed from foods in their natural states that we now call them "health foods", a sad admission that we've compromised our health for the sake of convenience. The Science of Skinny aims to create a space for change - to educate and enlighten listeners on the value of proper nutrition so they can find a healthier and more life-affirming relationship with their bodies and the food they eat.

Knowledge equals longevity and great health.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend this book to anyone who is interested in gaining control of their health. While the title is catchy for those looking to be "skinny" they are in for a shock (and a treat) because this book provides information about obtaining maximum health so that our bodies conform to its natural state which is healthy, healed and whole. The reader will learn about some of the things we put into our bodies that are slowly killing us. It then breaks the information down so that we have full, transparent knowledge how these substances came to exist (or be created).


What did you like best about this story?

I believe the research and knowledge provided in this book will save lives. At the very least, it will give readers an opportunity to make conscientious, informed decisions that govern their health, their lives and those they love.


Which character – as performed by Erin Bennett – was your favorite?

This narrator did an excellent job of portraying the author's intent in a clear and precise manner. While the book itself is well written and easy to read it is also an excellent choice to own on audio.


Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book will move you to change the way you shop, eat and read labels.


Any additional comments?

I think this book should be required reading in this age of morbid obesity and critically poor health. Before we can change our (eating) habits we need to know why and how they were first developed; we then need to know how we can break these habits contributing to our declining way of life (via food). We require food to survive. So what are all the extras in food about? Looks? Taste? Profit? And at what costs are we willing to pay to have these "extras" that are slowly robbing us of our health? Do we moderate or eradicate? You choose; but gain knowledge first, so that you are able to make an informed decision. This book will help you do that.
