Summary

Bloomsbury presents Eat Better Forever by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, read by Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall.

In Eat Better Forever, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall gives you all the tools to improve your eating habits and therefore your life - permanently. And to help it all happen, he’s added his 100 healthiest recipes yet.

In this ground-breaking book, instead of promising a gimmicky single-fix solution to the challenge of healthy eating, Hugh extracts the knowledge, advice and healthy habits, from cutting edge research into the obesity crisis, to produce seven simple strategies that will transform your diet and your health. Starting with the blissfully simple message that we all need to "Go whole", he leads us away from the industrial junk and processed foods that are doing so many of us so much harm and returns us to the real foods that nurture us and keep us well.

Everything that follows is clear, believable and achievable. From sorting the good carbs from the bad, learning not to fear fat and looking after our gut, to renegotiating the foods we call 'drinks' and being mindful of when to eat...and when to take a pause...Hugh guides us to a better way of eating that will last us our whole lives.

It’s all offered up with reassuring tips and switches that help us act on the vital knowledge he imparts. And the 100 recipes that come with it and their endless variations make for a lifetime of healthy eating.

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

No recipes

Luckily I also have the hard back version of this book. I wanted recipes on paper but thought listening to the many pages of theory would be so much easier than reading them that it was worth one credit. It absolutely was, but anyone thinking they're getting the whole book would be very disappointed. The recipes were mentioned several times but are not themselves included in the narration.
Later addition: I now realise the recipes and tables etc are provided on an 'accompanying pdf'. It's apparently in my library (though I've not managed to find it yet).

Exceptional! Very practical. Get this book!

'Eat Better Forever' is an excellent book! I have followed Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (and his campaigns against waste and plastic) for a little over ten years. His cookbooks 'River Cottage Veg Every Day!' and 'Love Your Leftovers' are among my all-time favourites. So I was very much looking forward to reading this book and my expectations were sky-high. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall delivered!

What permeates every page of this book almost tangibly is the author's joy and love of cooking, eating, and anything food-related in general. The book is beautifully written and a treat to read. All claims made by the author are thoroughly researched and supported by a plethora of sources. However, the best aspect of the book is the author's emphasis on practicality - every chapter ends with a list of easy, immediately actionable tips for improvement and change. Even more, the author is happy to detail his own journey to a healthier and better diet with its struggles and difficulties, such as his sweet tooth and love of a good pint or a good bottle of wine.

I have been interested in healthy cooking and eating for a very long time, so I dare say I am not a novice in this department. I still learned a LOT from this book and, most importantly, felt inspired by the author's joy and pleasure in improving his and his family's diet and eating habits.

The recipes in the book are simple and delicious. Every recipe I've made so far was a big hit with my family.

Overall, an exceptional, beautiful book full of sound advice and practical, immediately actionable tips for eating, feeling, and living better. I truly cannot recommend this book highly enough!

Full of useful information

Very positive look at healthy food choices told with earnest enthusiasm and some very generous examples from the author's own experience. Debunking diet fads with a lot of medical facts and including the most up to date information. I would have preferred more suggestions for everyday recipes but this is intended to address the widest possible audience and to press the message home. Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall is a campaigner for improving the nation's health as well as conservation issues, and this book is typical of his straightforward practical approach.

This book made me excited to eat and to explore the amazing variety of whole foods that have been provided to us in the natural world! This book has been so educational yet very accessible, I think so many people should hear this book as it reveals so much wisdom & insight to help us live healthier lives. I’ve been loving giving my body things that do it good! I’m so glad to have listened to this book. Would highly recommend!

Fascinating and motivation

whatever Hugh was narrating it would be a pleasure to listen to but this was so interesting and motivating. I am gradually applying his suggestions and within days started to feel better. I wish everyone could adopt this way of living or parts of it as it would have a massive positive effect on the stresses, preasures and strains people currently live with unaware that there is a better way to be.

Information packed!

Beginning & end was good, but I fell asleep in the middle as lost concentration due to repetition!

Thank you Hugh xx

Over the last 18months I have changed a lot of things in my life and as a result I am fitter, slimmer and generally healthier. I have been trying to work out which changes made the most positive impact on me.
Here they are, beautifully layed out by Hugh, believe me, it works and now I have a better understanding why.
Hugh's voice sounds like that of an old friend, I am so pleased that he read it himself. Loved it.

A useful, inspiring and enjoyable listen.

A straightforward and delightful book, a joy to hear Hugh’s chirpy voice narrate.
A timely revision of where we need to be heading in the minefield of nutrition.
It’s already inspired me to transform my shopping habits and make more mindful choices. Can’t wait to get stuck into the delicious recipes. Great book Hugh, thx.
