Publisher's Summary

A paradigm-shifting diet book that explains why one-size-fits-all diets don't work and helps listeners customize their diet to lose weight and improve health.

There are certain things we take as universal truths when it comes to dieting and health: kale is good; ice cream is bad. Until now. When Drs. Segal and Elinav published their groundbreaking research on personalized nutrition, it created a media frenzy. They had proved that individuals react differently to the same foods - a food that might be healthy for one person is unhealthy for another. In one stroke, they made all universal diet programs obsolete. The Personalized Diet helps listeners understand the fascinating science behind their work, gives them the tools to create an individualized diet and lifestyle plan (based on their reactions to favorite foods) and puts them on the path to losing weight, feeling good, and preventing disease by eating in the way that's right for them.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Good, solid science based information

Good information. The authors should consider going on the Joe Rogan Podcast, where I first heard of this research. I love the book, in spite of the narrator. I wish they got someone with a nice voice like Cynthia Holloway to read it.

Warning: Accompanying PDF is incomplete!

I used a credit for this book and about halfway through listening to it I noticed that things referred to in the book as being in the Accompanying PDF or Supplemental PDF were missing. I contacted Audible customer support and was told that this was the PDF they received from the publisher and they had even escalated the issue with the publisher and the authors/publishers never responded. I was curious how I could have discovered such an issue in a book from 2017 that was never resolved and found another review from May 2021 raising the same issue.

So if you are thinking about purchasing this book in audio format, just realize the Accompanying PDF is incomplete.

Things I noticed that were missing include:
The 2 example sample diets (you can actually see these in the TEDx talk: "What is the best diet for humans?" by Eran Segal (one of the authors) and this TEDx talk was what led me to this book incidently.
The worksheets for testing your blood glucose response for all your meals for 7 days.
The common carb substitutions list.

Probably more things are missing, these are the few I recall. Essentially every time they tell you to refer to the PDF after about Chapter 7 or 8 or so is just missing.

Great book but incomplete PDF

I loved this book and the content of this book. However the PDF is incomplete and its needed to try the things the author recommends. O contacted Audible and the answer was that the supplier said that’s what it is. So at the end I had to buy the real book.


The book itself has a great message: I am following on my glucose levels and also did a gut microbiome test.

2017

Published five years ago but extremely relevant today and possibly indefinitely. The narration is well balanced.
