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 Nutritional therapy is often overlooked in medical school, and the information provided to physicians is often outdated.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

Good all round look at real health

An easy listen, a bit too much repetition, probably for effect. Would have like Dr Berry to have narrated himself!

Thought Provoking

I like that Dr Berry gives references so you can verify what he's saying. There are some 'lies' that I discovered a while ago (great to hear another take) but so much of the book is new to me. Will listen to it again soon and will recommend to friends and family. One of the best on the subject. Grab it now, you won't be disappointed (except with governments, medical establishment, big food and pharma)!

Superb read

Amazing book from a groundbreaking doctor in Ken Berry. This guy is a true trailblazer and as a Health Scientist I can tell you his stance of many topics is bang on. A must read.

Read it. Take back control of your health.

I was familiar with Ken Barry's YouTube videos before listening to this book. He is an important member of the vanguard of doctors, specialists, scientists, researchers and even investigative journalists who are smart enough to be able to see the inconsistencies in the science that is currently accepted without question by many members of the medical profession, and who are not afraid to call it out, and have the communication skills to convey that to ordinary folk.
The book was not a disappointment. I did at one point find the repetitive format of each chapter slightly annoying. the same style of opening and closing. Later in the book it did not bother me, I could see the value in the repetition. it underscored the fact that each "lie" may be different, but the problem is also the same one. The fact that doctors don't question what they are told as often as they should. And also that our options are the same when confronted with this. We try to work with our doctor or we find a new one Or we educate ourselves and have the confidence to take our health into our own hands.

Best book ever

This is one of the best books that I have read (or listened to) and I have read a few health books. Absolutely amongst the best. Definitely a must read and keep reading as there is so much information in.

This doctor tells no lies

Great book, well written and narrated. It confirmed many ideas I have gleaned from numerous other sources, this book could save your life or at the very least improve the quality of it, and perhaps extend it. Fascinating facts. Thank you Doctor Ken Berry for these confirmations and sometimes surprising new insights.

A Surprising Read

A really thought provoking book that I thoroughly enjoyed. Coming from the UK our health system more revolves around the NHS and quite often private treatment is out of reach for most people. The ability to question NHS doctors is therefore more difficult and resources like this book is a really positive step to start a discovery of self learning. It encourages people to gain their own knowledge of their health issues and in turn question decisions about their health.

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.

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.

Illiterate Narrator

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

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.

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.
