Publisher's Summary

Lose weight, boost your metabolism, and start living a happier life with this transformative 30-day plan for healthy eating from the host of the hit podcast The Model Health Show.

Food is complicated. It's a key controller of our state of health or disease. It's a social centerpiece for the most important moments of our lives. It's the building block that creates our brain, enabling us to have thought, feeling, and emotion. It's the very stuff that makes up our bodies and what we see looking back at us in the mirror. Food isn't just food. It's the thing that makes us who we are. So why does figuring out what to eat feel so overwhelming?

In Eat Smarter, nutritionist, best-selling author, and number-one-ranked podcast host Shawn Stevenson breaks down the science of food with a 30-day program to help you lose weight, reboot your metabolism and hormones, and improve your brain function. Most importantly, he explains how changing what you eat can transform your life by affecting your ability to make money, sleep better, maintain relationships, and be happier. Eat Smarter will empower you and make you feel inspired about your food choices, not just because of the impact they have on your weight, but because the right foods can help make you the best version of yourself. 

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

Excellent information to tweak your way of eating!

I will be re-reading this many times over. It is packed full of information.
I have enjoyed learning the new recipes to tweek my lifelong lifestyle of better food choices for body and brain. I always knew there was a colleration between the body issues like degenerative disc disease being related to incompatible food choices but it wasn't until I heard the research that backed up my own suspicions. Now I am so glad I stumbled upon this book it's definitely appeared at the right time.

Similes were a big miss

Shawn wrote a fantastic book in terms of the quality of information that is provided. He has clearly done his research and there are awesome nutrition suggestions in here. He also does a great job with his narration; he's got a voice for radio and reading his own work is clearly something he loves doing.
My only issue with this book is that Shawn tries WAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYY too hard to come up with humourous (sorry, I'm Canadian) similes to illustrate points for the readers and he makes far too many pop culture and sports references that will mean nothing to many readers. Shawn and I are around the same age and we have similar interests, so I understood each witty comparison or reference that he made, but they took away from the quality of the information and I often missed information because I was trying to make sense of why certain comparisons/similes/references were in there. There are so many of them that it was a constant annoyance and once I realized that the whole book was going to be full of them, I was a bit disappointed.
Shawn prides himself of keeping up with all the current cutting-edge science and he's a very good writer. The attempted comedy took away from the authority that I expected from him. Nonetheless, I still appreciate the work that he put into the book and it is a helpful nutrition resource.

Holistic approach for physical & emotional health

Shawn delivers could-be dry information on health & nutrition in his witty & personal way. His voice is pleasant to listen to. His amazing personal story of overcoming severe medical condition is truly inspiring. I also appreciate Shawn's effort to deliver up to date research findings in various & relevant medical experiments. I will incoporate this in my healthy life coaching practice for sure.

Exceptionally Informative

I love the informative content in this books when it comes to true wellness and real sustainable fat loss . So much of this information is not in the awareness of people and it truly should be. Tons of science backed facts, research and tools for proven results. You can feel the passion in the book. Truly serves a mission for healthier happier people.

Solid. Impactful. Life Changing...if you let it!

You will not find a book smarter than this one to lead you to a healthier lifestyle.
Shawn keeps it real, takes off the kid gloves and delivers the research that holds the truth.
Eat Smarter is NOT delivering a quick fix...they don’t work y’all...you have to actually DO the work!
And the work is eating better quality food.
You do NOT have to have any background in nutrition to understand the content happening between the front and back cover...Shawn makes it very palatable and easily digestible. He even gives you a 30 day CUSTOMIZABLE plan to get you started.
If your overall goal is better health, this is the guide for you because it will sustain you for a lifetime!!!

Gives us the knowledge to make our own decisions…

This book is not about perfection, it’s about giving us the knowledge to help improve our health wherever we are at in our life today.
I’ve been listening to Shawn for years through his The Model Health Show Podcast where he interviews experts that are known from all over. He has helped me in so many more ways than he’ll ever know. He’s information has provided me the foundation I needed to heal my own body after dealing with health issues for years. Through his teachings he’s got me fascinated with the health of our bodies using nutrition, sleep, exercise, and more. Over the last five years, I have read and listened to more than 4,000 hours of books and podcasts that cover nutrition and health. I love listening to him and I'm so glad he's reading his own book! It’s obvious he’s spent years of researching and consolidating peer-reviewed evidence-based studies, so we don’t have to. So thankful for all he has done for me and others through his teaching. There have been so many books I’ve wanted and tried to share with family and friends, but I knew it would be too overwhelming for them. In Eat Smarter, Shawn does a wonderful job, as always, at breaking everything down in a way that it’s easy for others to digest the information and really understand what is going on within you body. He covers how your hormones work, or are suppose to work, along with how different foods affect our bodies. Within, Eat Smarter he breaks down the myths we have been taught throughout our life while providing us highlights from fascinating studies. He also throws in some great humor to keep it fun and entertaining.
For anyone looking to improve loose weight, improve gut health, or wants to just learn more of how the body communicates this is the book for you! He does a great job at staying high level to keep the amount of information digestible. He also provides a game plan for long-term lasting success in staying healthy along with delicious and tasty recipes that give you great nutrition, too.
He gives us the information we need to make educated food decisions and not subscribe to a specific diet as we have been taught in the past. Makes me curious and think of even more questions I would love for him to cover in Eat Smarter Too (fingers-crossed).
