Publisher's Summary

Has your doctor lied to you?

Eat low-fat and high-carb, including plenty of “healthy” whole grains - does that sound familiar? Perhaps, this is what you were told at your last doctor’s appointment or visit with a nutritionist, or perhaps, it is something you read online when searching for a healthy diet. And maybe, you’ve been misled. Dr. Ken Berry is here to dispel the myths and misinformation that have been perpetuated by the medical and food industries for decades.

This updated and expanded edition of Dr. Berry’s best seller Lies My Doctor Told Me exposes the truth behind all kinds of “lies” told by well-meaning but misinformed medical practitioners. Nutritional therapy is often overlooked in medical school, and the information provided to physicians is often outdated. However, the negative consequences on your health remain the same. Advice to avoid healthy fats and stay out of the sun has been proven to be detrimental to longevity and can wreak havoc on your system. 

In this audiobook, Dr. Berry will enlighten you about nutrition and life choices, their role in our health, and how to begin an educated conversation with your doctor about finding the right path for you.

This book will teach you:
 

  • Facts doctors are taught to think about nutrition and other preventative health measures and how they should be thinking
  • Story of how the food pyramid and MyPlate came into existence and why they should change
  • Facts about fat intake and heart health
  • Truth about the effects of whole wheat on the human body
  • Role of dairy in your diet
  • Truth about salt - friend or foe?
  • Dangers and benefits of hormone therapy
  • New information about inflammation and how it should be viewed by doctors

Come out of the darkness and let Ken Berry be your guide to optimal health and harmony!

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

If you read just ONE health book make it this one!

Wow, being a book worm I read every book on health and nutrition that comes out. And I must say, this book is a GAME CHANGER, everyone needs to read this book!

Every teacher and parent needs to equipped the future generations in a way they can succeed. And the two pillars everyone should know to live well is health and finance.

This book sums up just how far the medical industry has slipped, focused on profits and not on healing.

I lost faith in doctors years ago, but have hope that with books like this out there, the future can be different.

SO JUST READ IT ALREADY!

Take Back your Health!

Took only a couple of days to get through this awesome audio book. As one who shops around for doctors depending on what I need, this book explains how to educate your doctor. The "homework" section has some good book recommendations for further reading. (I have read about a third of them) The advice to other doctors at the end is sage. You could almost read the last chapters first, for added power. Thanks Dr. Berry!

Extremely informative!

I read the Kindle version several months ago and it’s already improved my health. I was excited for a refresher with this audible version.
If you’re not familiar with Dr.Berry from his fantastic YouTube videos you won’t care that the narrator sounds a bit robotic and lacks the personality & charisma of Dr. Berry.
The content is fantastic! Sometimes I was very pissed off reading how decades of bad advice has evolved in the medical community and has personally affected me and my family.
Hopefully Dr.Berry’s next book will be narrated by him...

Excellent Book

Awesome Read. Great information in easy language. Every medical professional person should read and question their own understanding of the things they practice. Dr. Berry does an amazing job uncovering some REAL truths in order to really help not only himself but his patients and thousands of others who blindly believed "doctors knew all". They don't and this book helps shine some truths on a few of those areas that more science and research should been taught in medical schools.

Weak Narrator

Love the book but the narrator was lacking... I wish Dr. Berry would have narrated it himself.

Everyone must read it or at least give a listen to

The most important book you will ever read. It should be taught to kids in schools.

I love Dr. Ken Berry!

I’ve listened to Ken Berry on several podcasts, which is how I found out about his book. I enjoyed this book’s content, humor, and simplified debunking of common medical myths. However, I wish Dr. Berry had read it himself. My only criticism is that the monotone voice used took away from the listening experience. However, I’d still recommend this book to everyone I care about.

Narrator has trouble pronouncing words correctly...

He reads clearly, like an announcer, however it lacks after this. Primarily, he needs to check his pronunciation on words like “adage”

It’s currently pronounced, “Add-edge”, with emphasis on add, not dage. He said it like the word “adagio”, without the “io”. Anyway, it threw me when he said it twice.
