The Happiness Hypothesis is about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing. Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims can enrich and even transform our lives.

Should you cook with coconut oil or vegetable oil? Eat butter, cream, or olive oil? Supplement with fish oil or flax oil? Sometimes it seems as if everyone has a different opinion on these crucial questions - but this audiobook holds real answers. Best-selling author and teacher Dr. Joseph Mercola teams up with cardiovascular expert Dr. James DiNicolantonio to cut through the confusion about how dietary fats affect our bodies and set the record straight on how to eat for optimal well-being.

Note that this book doesn't really get into other healthy living topics such as exercise, sleep and stress management.

For David Goggins, childhood was a nightmare - poverty, prejudice, and physical abuse colored his days and haunted his nights. But through self-discipline, mental toughness, and hard work, Goggins transformed himself from a depressed, overweight young man with no future into a US Armed Forces icon and one of the world's top endurance athletes. The only man in history to complete elite training as a Navy SEAL, Army Ranger, and Air Force Tactical Air Controller, he went on to set records in numerous endurance events.

An outstanding memoir from a true warrior. Goggins goes deep into the mindset of someone who accomplishes extremely difficult physical feats. Highly recommended, especially for young men. The bonus back and forth between Goggins and the narrator between chapters is a real treat and also insightful.

We all know the dangers of sugar and salt: but the danger attributed to the second white crystal has more to do with getting too little of it, not too much. Too little salt can shift the body into semi-starvation mode, causing insulin resistance, and may even cause twice as much fat to be absorbed for every gram that's consumed. Too little salt in certain populations can also actually increase blood pressure as well as resting heart rate.

So many great bits of knowledge and practical advice on every single aspect of how to best incorporate salt in our diets.

This book dispels so much bad advice that has been foisted on an unsuspecting public over the past few decades, with such tragic results.

This is a one of a kind book and I would sincerely say of critical importance to people dealing with illnesses and vague lethargy, and athletes seeking superior performance.

Very highly recommended. It's already noticeably improved my life in a few short days.

But a key element in any successful nutritional health program is a tried-and-true method that most people haven't thought about - yet it could be revolutionary for taking health to the next level. This ancient secret is fasting.

Anyone grappling with adult onset diabetes should listen immediately to the audiobook, which shows the way to reclaiming your health through better diet.

This book is about much more than fasting, but in an entertaining way goes into every kind of detail about fasting that you could think of. This information isn't really available all in one place like this anywhere else.

This cutting edge stuff, and personally life-changing. Get this book!!

Covers all the bases of the Diet-Evolution, ketogenic, paleo, intermittent-fasting revolution that is dramatically improving the lives of so many North Americans burnt out and overweight from way too much sugar and grains, and improper exercise and lifestyle choices.

This revised version cleans up the odd loose ends​ from the first edition, and the narrator is like a buddy chatting with you at the gym.

Highly recommended for anyone looking to take back control over their health and fitness. I myself have adopted many of these measures and lost 35 lbs. and regained robust health in 9 months.

Along with the many benefits of leisure-class living comes obesity and its attendant ailments. In The Warrior Diet, Ori Hofmekler looks not forward but backward for a solution - to the primal habits of early cultures such as nomads and hunter-gatherers, the Greeks, and the Romans. Based on survival science, this book proposes not ordinary dietary changes but rather a radical yet surprisingly simple lifestyle overhaul.

Twenty years ago Ori was more or less the first person to popularize what today is called intermittent fasting, or what he called at the time "undereating" during the daytime before "feasting" in the evening.

Since then he and others have refined the concept and related health ideas quite a bit (today in 2018 he's far less keen on meat, for example), but if you're a student of the history of IF and the ketogenic diet, this book is essential reading/listening about this extremely beneficial health movement of the 21st century.

The narrator does an excellent job, with writing that can get a little bombastic at times (think Nietzsche writing a diet and exercise book...) but it's all good fun, with lots of anecdotal stories and observations, as a lot of the scientific studies on IF hadn't been carried out yet when the book was written.

Brilliantly sets the frame for how to look at living a healthy life over a longer lifespan. The narrator is superb and empathetic. Dr Gundry's more up-to-date thoughts are in Plant Paradox, which is a more technical book, so this is the better one to start with, even if it's a decade old. I followed Dr Gundry's advice and have lost 28 pounds (all fat) over the past five months and feel fantastic. A life changing book -- strongly recommended!!

The narrator is little nerdy to listen to, but the content here is outstanding. Following Dr Gundry's many brilliant insights and tips from all three of his books, I've lost 30 lb. (all fat) over the last 5 months and feel fantastic. His Diet Evolution book is best and more approachable if you're entirely new to Dr Gundry, but this has much more scientific detail and reflects his latest thinking. There's so much contradictory advice out there on the market and in the media, but this is the real deal. I can't recommend this book enough!!!
