Cut hidden food toxins, lose weight, and get healthy in just 21 days.

Did you know that your fast food fries contain a chemical used in Silly Putty? Or that a juicy peach sprayed heavily with pesticides could be triggering your body to store fat? When we go to the supermarket, we trust that all our groceries are safe to eat. But much of what we're putting into our bodies is either tainted with chemicals or processed in a way that makes us gain weight, feel sick, and age before our time.

Luckily, Vani Hari - aka the Food Babe - has got your back. A food activist who has courageously put the heat on big food companies to disclose ingredients and remove toxic additives from their products, Hari has made it her life's mission to educate the world about how to live a clean, organic, healthy lifestyle in an overprocessed, contaminated-food world, and how to look and feel fabulous while doing it.

In The Food Babe Way, Hari invites you to follow an easy and accessible plan to rid your body of toxins, lose weight without counting calories, and restore your natural glow in just 21 days. Including anecdotes of her own transformation along with easy-to-follow shopping lists, meal plans, and mouthwatering recipes, The Food Babe Way will empower you to change your food, change your body, and change the world.

Verging on Excellent

Would you listen to The Food Babe Way again? Why?

Yes I' listen again because it's well read, has lots of food for thought, good information & lots of points I need to recap.

What other book might you compare The Food Babe Way to, and why?

Mmm. The Perfect Health Diet maybe??. because that one too is scientifically based, but more so.

Which scene did you most enjoy?

The information on processed foods & unnecessary, grotty additives to food.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

If I had had the time yes. But I needed to go slowly to adsorb all her findings/all the info.

Any additional comments?

I think modern day 'bad- food' issues are multi factorial. It's not all about the toxins manufacturers put into processed food, the GMO of food & toxic sprays.I am not belittling their disastrous effects on health; but I disagreed with her take on sugar. Vani did not look into insulin resistance,pre diabetic states, inflammation, metabolic syndrome etc which can stem in part (lots of parts) from a high carb intake. Nor did she address the ghastly processing of vegetable oils in depth. On the whole I thought the book was fantastic but I could only give it 4 stars because a more thorough research would have unveiled the importance of cutting down on sugars even if they are "natural" sugars - like coconut nectar etc that Vani advocates, (although she does say to balance the amounts consumed). Basically I think what this food activist has done is incredible & her book will help better the health of many lives, including mine.

Good info, very informative, just 1 thing missing!

If you could sum up The Food Babe Way in three words, what would they be?

Very informative and she does her homework

What did you like best about this story?

Not a story so I can't really say what I like best

Which scene was your favorite?

Scene??? Oh ya, the part where she explains what you should and shouldn't eat was pretty cool

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I was very moved what she spoke of eating the right foods.

Any additional comments?

She must have referred to a pdf file that came with the audio book, at least 25 times throughout her reading. It has charts, tables, stats, recipes etc... yet when you download the audible version, you don't get this, and apparently there is no way to get them. I went to her website foodbabe.com, but there is no link on the site to contact anyone at all... so I then found her facebook page asking about it, but it's been 2 weeks and have no response. So just beware when you download, you will not get all of this info that you would get with the audio CD

Great Information

Would you consider the audio edition of The Food Babe Way to be better than the print version?

Yes & No. Yes because I'm so busy, being able to listen to this book, while I'm working or at the gym, made it possible for me to get through this book. No because with all the complicated, alien sounding chemical names, it is hard to remember them without see them. Luckily, I'm at a computer and looked up the names when they came up.

But mostly Yes, since it came with the .PDF

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Food Babe Way?

Beaver anus ice cream... Need I say more?

Which scene was your favorite?

I enjoyed the entire book.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

No. but i have questions.
#1 Can you do lemon & apple cider vinegar in the morning?
#2 Is there a Spanish version of this book? I need to give this to my parents!

Enlightening and practical

We all know there are a lot of things in processed foods but we have no idea what, first because most of us don't read labels, we don't research ingredients, and sometimes companies don't disclose everything. Although she has a 21 day system to help you avoid the bad things in foods it's not just another diet, it's a way of living.. Good read!

The pdf can be found online under the library section.

Vani goes above and beyond with the information and value she gives readers in this book. Easy to listen to as well.

Empowering!!!

I LOVE Vani Hari. The way she starts each new chapter with repeating the checklist is very helpful for information retention. I was also pleasantly surprised at how well-rounded this book is; it's not just about what you should consume. I can't wait until her new book is available on Audible!!!
