Everything that every nutrition book should contain. This book is incredible and everyone should read it. It destroys so many terrible myths and so much misinformation and nonsense pervading the world of food. There were moments I wished I could run and hug Matt Fitzgerald for doing such a fantastic job of presenting the accurate side of nutrition in a format those of us without a degree in biochemistry can digest. I have already recommended this book to the food and science enthusiasts I know, and I will continue to recommend it to everyone because this is an incredible collection of knowledge. Bravo, Mr. Fitzgerald.

Finding Ultra is Rich Roll's incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever. One evening in 2006, before turning 40, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly 50 pounds overweight at the time and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he plunged into a new way of eating that made processed foods off-limits and prioritized plant nutrition and daily training. Rich morphed - in mere months - from out-of-shape midlifer to endurance machine. Revised and updated edition with a new and original foreword and a bonus chapter.

I enjoyed hearing about his journey into ultra training. The psuedoscience he promotes with his plant based diet is over the top though. of that entire section disappeared, I would have greatly enjoyed the book. Cleanses... who actually falls for that? I guess he does. I quit the book when it became all about his lack of knowledge about healthy eating. You don't need to consume spirulina to be healthy.

An entire book telling us we are in control of our lives? Who doesn't know that already? Is that something that indoctrinated Christians fall for? Very disappointing waste of an audible credit. There are motivating books out there containing useful information. Try Matt Fitzgerald's, "How Bad do You Want It," or Cindra Kamphoff's, "Beyond Grit."
