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 Nutritional therapy is often overlooked in medical school, and the information provided to physicians is often outdated.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.

Follow Dr. Berry's own advice and walk away!

After a couple of hours into the book, I had to put it away and follow Dr. Berry's own advice - walk away from an incompetent physician. These are his main points that made me suspicious:
1. Recommending the leafy greens as the source of calcium and promoting the consumption of the seeds and nuts as "the healthiest foods you can eat". Why is the good doctor unaware of the many anti-nutrients in these plant foods?
2. Justifying that the milk is bad for you with a laughable argument that no other adult mammals except for the humans, drink it. Leave a bowl of milk in your yard overnight and it will be gone by the morning!
3. Suggesting that occasionally eating the wheat-based products is fine. In my opinion there is a fundamental flaw in thinking of the junk food as a treat.

I totally agree with Dr. Berry that a doctor should stay current with the latest research. I had to put away this book for the lack of evidence that this doctor actually does.

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!

To my new Favorite Doctor in the World!!!

I loved it !!! Your book woke me up big time to what my heart and mind always told me was right. instincts are what serve us best. you truly took away my worry about what is right. I believe what you teach will question our world we live in and make people really see that we are our own best Doctors. if it doesn't sound right, it probably isn't. I always knew to question everything and that our sun is our friend and nature will help us live a perfect life. Your are now my friend and I know a follower of a higher power. Now you and Dr. Day are my Heros. May God Bless you and your family. you should get a medal and be proud. you are the worlds Doctor and the funniest one too. A Veteran and forever friend, Julie

Illiterate Narrator

I’m a non-native, but I do know that indictment has no dick in it. Narrators should prep better.

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...

Weak Narrator

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

Can’t listen to the narrator!

Love Dr Berry and the hard copy of this book. But the narrator of the audible book is horrible and I can’t take listening to him. 😖 He sounds robotic. I wish Dr Berry had narrated his own book. I’m going to return this version and hope for a new narrator in the future. 🤞

Bias much!?

While the book is full of interesting information it’s nothing you haven’t seen on some post on Instagram. The author is also extremely bias to certain methodologies (paleo/Keto) while dismissing even bashing others. Save your credit for another book, I wish I would have.

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.

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.
