Summary

What is syndrome X? It's a resistance to insulin - the hormone needed to burn food for energy - combined with high cholesterol or triglycerides, high blood pressure, or too much body fat. Syndrome X ages you prematurely and significantly increases your risk of heart disease, hypertension, obesity, eye disease, nervous system disorders, diabetes, Alzheimer's, cancer, and other age-related diseases.  

Syndrome X is the first book to tell you how to fight the epidemic disorder that is derailing the health of nearly a third of North Americans. It outlines a complete three-step program - including easy-to-follow diets, light physical activity, and readily available vitamins and nutritional supplements - that will safeguard you against developing syndrome X or reverse it if you already have it.

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

Nothing Groundbreaking But Good, Actionable Advice

A good combination of "why" and "how" – more concrete next steps and things to consider/try than many modern health books that simply want to lament the prevalence of packaged man-made "food" (though there is that here too). Fairly easy to follow along with and good narration.

Insightful

While dry material I found it engaging and highly informative. I couldn’t take notes fast enough. I even made a new changes to my diet.
