Publisher's Summary

Science is beginning to understand that our thinking has a deep and complicated relationship with our eating. Our thoughts before, during, and after eating profoundly impact our food choices, our digestive health, our brain health, and more. Yet most of us give very little thought to our food beyond taste and basic nutritional content.
In this revolutionary book, Dr. Caroline Leaf packs an incredible amount of information that will change listeners' eating and thinking habits for the better. Rather than getting caught up in whether we should go raw or vegan, gluten-free or paleo, Leaf shows listeners that every individual is unique, has unique nutritional needs, and has the power to impact their own health through the right thinking. There's no one perfect solution. Rather, she shows us how to change the way we think about food and put ourselves on the path towards health.
Anyone who is tired of traditional diet plans that don't work, who struggles with emotional eating, or who simply isn't satisfied with their level of health will find in this book the key to discovering how they can begin developing a healthier body, brain, and spirit.

Terrific book!!!

I have listened to a lot of books about health, sustainable living, modern disease, etc. and this is one of my favorites. The author did a phenomenal job presenting all the major issues of today's modern society with regard to food, obesity, CAFOs, big pharma, disease and the medical institution. I will definitely listen to again, because there is so much info packed into this book. She really did her homework. Best of all, I love, love, love that it's from a Christian perspective. I wish she would have chosen a Christian narrator, though. Throughout the book the narrator kept saying "...Theologians chapter ___" instead of Thessalonians. It was a bit disconcerting, and I'm surprised no proofers caught it. But it didn't at all take away from the very well-written book. Essential for anyone interested in improving their health!! Highly recommend!

Poor writing, Poor performance

I follow Dr. Leaf and am a fan of hers. However, the first part of this book is padded with a lot of scary condemnations of the food industry, a rehash of Fast Food Nation for the first 9 chapters, inducing fear and a negative mindset from the beginning of the book, when this is the antithesis of the professed goals of Dr. Leaf. Perhaps Dr. Leaf had a contract for so many pages. Start at Chapter 10 and read on from there for the gist of the book. Also, the narrator, hired to read a Christian title, mispronounces the names of the Biblical epistles to the Thessalonians multiple times. Familiarity with the basics of Christianity such as a knowledge of how to pronounce the books of the Bible should be requisite for any narrator endeavoring to read a Christian title. However, if you can get past these shortfalls, it might be useful. I look forward to a revised version without the first 9 chapters (or the 9 shortened to 1) and a narrator conversant with the rudiments of the Bible.
