Any additional comments?
I've listened to quite a few wellness related books and typically they focus on one aspect of diet, exercise or well-being. I really liked that this book covered all three as being inter-related in the offered solution for a healthy metabolism. She gives detailed information to support her conclusions. Much of the information covered can't be followed by listening to this book in audio format, it is just too much to remember. The accompanying PDF doesn't list the supplements or any of the guidelines for using them, so a digital or paper version of this book would have been more useful, so I could reference them to do some research on them myself. My only two criticisms are the focus on protein powders and substitute sweeteners. Protein supplementation might be necessary for non-meat eaters, but a balanced diet should provide the necessary protein without funky powder products, in my opinion. Also, I felt there was a lot on sweeteners/sugar substitutes. The why not to use them part was great, but I'm not sold on the recommended ones. The product Just Like Sugar, which is not carb-free, was pushed and a lot of sweet, baked recipes mentioned (maybe to promote cookbook) as though they should be eaten regularly instead of sparingly. Those are minor, though, compared to the useful wealth of information in the book.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
If you're looking for a way to be aware of what you are eating, this is a great book to start with!

Maria is extremely knowledgeable. I really enjoyed the part where she listed all the different supplements she considered important and stated their purpose and function.
I did think that she did base a lot of her advice on the readers goal being fat loss-which may or may not be true.
That's the only thing that I can fault about the book-other than that, it has proven extremely useful for me and this is the one audio book that is worth every cent I paid for!
