To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
This is nothing more than a promotion of a vegan lifestyle. Title is misleading, simple lifestyle change it is Not. You give up dairy, meat, seafood, oils and of course, sugar. That is Not a simple change. Then they include that you should be active, don't stress, and be around loving people. Your book promotion on Dr Oz implied that you can still have animal protein and carbs, but that's not what you say in the book. A total waste of my money. I'm sure that his statistics and medical reasoning is sound, but call this book what it is, go vegan.
I should have read other reviews first to see if I could get a better idea about this book. I was chiefly looking for plant based recipes to add to my diet but thought it couldn't hurt to learn additional info. We have no "lifestyle"diseases and already eat whole foods, complex carbs and rarely eat processed foods with the exception of canned salmon, tuna, sardines and tomato products. We eat veggies at all three meals. What I was not interested in was instructions on how I should communicate with friends or a long dissertation on why I shouldn't eat meat at all and severely limit all fats including nuts. Pretty much no fat, no meat, no sugar (stevia - blech) = no fun. For me this book was a waste of money but for others it might be just the ticket.
If you are a diabetic this is a total waste of money and time. No diabetic needs a recipe, vegan or otherwise, that has 50+g of carbs per serving, sometimes 1/2 cup or less. And if you live in a small town good luck on finding most of the ingredients without travel to a major city. Typical vegan hype, brown rice, whole wheat and grains, veggies only GOOD, fat, meat protein, BADDDD. Better recipes on the internet
