Diet Recovery 2: Restoring Mind and Metabolism from Dieting, Weight Loss, Exercise, and Healthy Food is the ultimate guide to breaking free from the empty hunt for the perfect diet and the counterproductive pursuit of losing weight.
It's true, whether you are cutting carbs, or fats, or eating a vegetarian diet, or going Paleo, or eating a truckload of fiber - or even reducing your calorie intake... All of it has been proven ineffective in every weight loss study ever conducted. No matter what form of dietary restriction you impose upon yourself, your likelihood of not only regaining any weight lost in the initial 6-month diet honeymoon period, but actually ending up fatter than when you started, is a virtual guarantee.
Needless to say, if you are already viewing a page about an audiobook entitledDiet Recovery 2, you probably already know this and are looking to break free from repetitive dieting cycles and the obsessive habit of micromanaging the details of your diet-of-the-month. And that's what Diet Recovery 2 is meant to help you accomplish, once and for all.
Don't you miss just being able to eat and not think about it? Be able to go out with friends or home for the holidays without worry and fear about what's going to be served as if having gluten or refined sugar is on par with a game of Russian Roulette?
When you are ready to let go, this can be your guide- vastly more freeing and probably more effective.

Very funny and very knowledgeable author debunks a lot of diet myths I fell for
"Helped Me So Much"
No, both are awesome. And I recommend either, depending on your preference. Matt's funny either way.
Hmm. Tough one. It's not much like any other diet book I've read. So I cannot compare it to another book.
Matt helped me recognize and recover from an eating disorder I had for seven years. If you have any inkling that your dieting has become an obsession, or if you refuse to eat your Grandma's pie at family gatherings (because it contains sugar, or wheat, or butter) you probably need this book.
"Are diets doing more harm than good?" I think a documentary should be made on the subject, and that Matt should be one of the experts interviewed.
"Open Your Mind & Your Body Will Thank You"
Yes. Even though I own both the print and audio, I use the print more for referencing specific sections that the audio points me to. The audio is priceless.
After searching for years to find the ideal diet, and trying just about everything out there, hearing Matt's story and information in this book was like an epiphany. I was literally starving myself and getting sicker and sicker until I found and applied the material in this book. Overall, this book just makes sense. But do yourself a favour...listen to it multiple times b/c if you're like me, you may initially get caught up in Matt's humour and miss a lot of the critical info regarding implementing this recovery program.
I've listened to many of Matt's audio books and this is definitely his best. However, Solving the Paleo Equation is his most refined and complete work, but it's only available in print (and Kindle). I hope he and Dr. Smith put it into audio format soon.
His discussions about fat and how so much of our hormone regulation is connected to it. I'd feared fat (and carbs) for most of my life, but after listening and re-listening to these parts of the book, my eyes were opened and my fat (and carb) fears dropped away. And...the best part of it all...I started to feel better.
Stick with the program!!! Don't stop when you start to gain weight...that's only the first stage. See it through...I am only 3 months in, but I've seen changes in my body composition that I didn't know were possible. Yes, I gained weight. Yes, people 'initially' commented on me "getting fat", BUT just as Matt said, the fat gain eventually led to more muscle on my body and the "fat" comments suddenly turned to "are you working out?", "man, you look good.", "How much protein are you eating, because your arms are getting jacked." Ha! I just laugh and say, honestly, I barely work out...instead, I've stop restricting my diet and I eat A LOT more.
Oddly though, my temps are still not in the 98s, so I'm beginning to work with Dr. Smith in order to tweak my current regime.
One other thing...sign up for Matt's 180 Degree Health newsletter. It provides great info and over the course of about 90 days, you'll be able to buy all of this books for about a buck. I've also signed up for Matt's 180 degree radio...it too has been well worth it ($3/month, but first month is free).
