Mr. Berry, good day. I just want to say Thanks. I retired from the Army after 23yrs just up the road @ Fort Campbell. No issues health wise all 23yrs other then some muscles here and there. After retirement about 3yrs ago I have gained weight up to (240) and become pre diabetic, high cholesterol etc. I have been watching your YouTube and following on FB since the start of 2020. I started in January what I call dirty Keto...I cheat at all it is a desert Not bread, potatoes etc. I just got my resent blood work results and it motivates me to tell you and for me to keep driving forward. Doctor says no longer pre diabetic. AC1 went 6.5 to 5.4. Other numbers (recommend range) (200)123 (150)81 (100)70 and my HDL still needs to go higher but went from 33 up to 47 (50). Also by the way almost under 200 for loss of about 40lbs. Please keep sharing the message....Jay
Dr. Berry's approach in the book is pretty much how he relates to his viewers in his videos on his YouTube Channel. His direct, honest, and humorous approach of explaining misconceptions, false information, and the lack of transparency by those in the medical world (or by those who are just plain ill-informed) comes through in each chapter. His intent is very plain throughout the book – he is not trying to throw the medical community under the bus – not at all! But rather his purpose is to inform and educate the public as well as to challenge the medical community. Emphasizing that our trusted physicians must stay up to date with the latest research, studies, and ongoing education – both in their fields and outside of their field of expertise – is something which Dr. Berry does very respectfully. He wants patients to have very open, honest, and good working relationships with their doctors. I highly recommend his new and updated book!
In simple language, Dr. Ken fills us in on how the medical system has gotten to the point that it is in today, where doctors are taught mostly to treat disease and illness, but are not taught how to help their patients stay healthy. He tells us of many of the lies we are told that many doctors don't even know are lies! He goes on to tell us how we can do a better job of of taking care of ourselves, and prevent disease, but not necessarily by following the same rules that doctors would tell us to follow. Very non-technical, but he encourages us to research for ourselves how to stay healthy and provides us with resources that we can read or study. There are a few typos, but not enough to detract from the important information that he is presenting. All in all, a very good read!
I was introduced to Dr Berry by a dear friend. Let me just say his no nonsense approach to healthcare has allowed me to lose 115lbs in 13 months. He lets you know it’s ok to question your doctor’s medical decisions for your health and your life. He encourages open conversations about health and nutrition. You can’t believe everything you hear or read from the MSM. I recommend you buy his book AND follow his YouTube and Facebook page. There is lots of info in all of these places. I have now found a local keto friendly doctor who has helped me on my journey and my husband and dropped his A1C an entire point in 5 months and lost 35lbs. My daughter has lost 52! Thanks Dr Berry for changing my family for the better!
So many ah ha moments while reading this unbiased strait forward no BS book that everyone should read. He tries hard not to vilify doctors, but explains how it's difficult for any person to keep up with all of the latest medical research while also seeing patients, running a practice, and just generally trying to live life. I also am deeply suspicious of government, medications and the doctors who prescribe them willy-nilly. I wholeheartedly believe in the paleo/low carb way of eating and believe the SAD is a huge part of today's medical problems, so he didn't have to try hard to sell me on that. Dr. Berry presents facts that disprove long standing Medical Myths. He doesn't mince words and gets to the point in a informative and engaging manner. I highly recommend this book.
I have chronic back pain for about two years (L5/S1 bulge), started going Keto about 10 days ago (recent blood work, A1c -6.0, Glucose 123). Based on your eating Keto guidelines I have lost 12 lbs and my back pain has lessened greatly (I can put my socks on pain free!) I play a lot of golf and do HIIT on my Bowflex M7 , so I do stress the back. I was going to have a steroid epidural, but I think I will hold off on that. Maybe I will be able to start running again which I miss a lot. Thank you Dr. Berry!!
