Very helpful

I would recommend this to anyone struggling with self imposed stress about how to eat and how much to exercise (issues I've always struggled with myself), it would also be good for anyone with body image issues

I listened to this book on audible. I liked the sense of humor, kindness and insight. Since I was 12 I have been on a variety of diets and workout routines, always feeling like I wasn't thin enough, so I really related to his advice for people who need to let it go. Thank you to this writer and hope I can implement your advice and live a happier more self accepting life.

Medical science, take note

The fact that our diety, weight-obsessed "health" culture has gotten it wrong is not shocking to me, but probably is to the vast majority of both providers and patients. I appreciate this well-researched treatise on what genuine health actually is. I loved the entire book (except the part about "subluxation"), and Dr Prentice's presentation keeps the listener engaged and entertained while educating at the same time. Good job!
