Packed full of useful information
This audio book is packed full of useful information. Written by someone who knows what it's like to struggle with a weight problem. If you're wanting to start out on a ketosis diet, this is a must listen. All the information you'll need and all the science to back it up is included.
Hopefully the audio editor didn't get paid as there are a number of glitches and dead air in the audio track that need sorting out. And if the author is reading this, please, lose the bells....

A life changing book for me...maybe for you too!
Unlike another reviewer, I found Jimmy's narration to be just fine. There are a lot of "bells" signalling a quote from another person, but I didn't mind those at all. The quotes really add a lot of content to the book.
I have embraced low carb for many years, but this book really added a lot of new information for me about the role of fat and protein in a low carb diet. I feel like I have a MUCH greater understanding of the role of carbs in our health. Jimmy adds a whole lot of anecdotal stories along with summaries of published medical studies about people and conditions that have been helped by ketosis. Super inspiring to me.
I highly recommend this book to anyone, but especially to someone struggling with weight, diabetes, chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, neurological disorders, alzheimers, cancer or anything!
I walked away from this book with an understanding that low carb and ketosis are truly keys to living a long, healthy life free of the scourge of modern diseases. Thank you Jimmy!

A good source of info on Low Carb, High Fat living
First, I agree with everyone who commented on the "dings" for "moment of clarity moments" they are completely annoying. Hence I give the performance rating a low score. But please don't let this discourage you from reading this book. The two books I'd read on a similar topic were excellent and I wanted to learn more. It turned out that the author of this book quoted the other authors in several places, so I knew I was on the right track to learn more about the benefits of maintaining my low carb lifestyle. But I learned so much more.
Yes, it is written from the author's point of view. So what? It doesn't pretend to be anything else. But the author also explains why an individual's experience with something can be useful in this case. He also sites where scientific research is and hasn't yet been done. And, he is quick to make sure that his readers learn from what he has experienced and decide for themselves.
I enjoyed this book, "dings" and all, and I'd gladly recommend it to friends and family.
