wtf* is wrong with our health? *what the food: A Rebel Physician's Manifesto for Reversing Disease and Increasing Smiles

WTF* is Wrong with Our Health? By Roberto Tostado

Stop f’ing around with your health… …and take control of your life! Sick of being overweight, diabetic, or achy and low energy? Tired of being fatigued or depressed? Sick and tired of taking multiple prescription drugs with no end in sight? There is another way to live—not just to feel a little better or take fewer drugs, but to strut through life feeling your best. Is there a catch? You bet! You’ll have to take a radical look at what you eat, get rid of the junk and replace it with fresh whole foods… but it all starts in your head. Along the way you’ll learn to detoxify your attitude too. You gotta really want to be healthy! Rebel physician Roberto Tostado envisions a new direction in medicine, integrating whole-foods nutrition, thinking less toxic thoughts, and releasing ourselves from grudges and self-loathing. This is the new direction that he truly believes will help prevent most chronic diseases while smiling all the way.

My Review

4 stars

Most people have horrible health today. Almost everyone is taking one prescription or another usually to treat these health conditions. But then they have side effects and have to go on another pill for these and still not have the first problem cured. Roberto Tostado, MD talks about how the pharmaceutical representatives would buy him dinners and such to get him to prescribe their pills. He also talks about how modern medicine focuses on curing an ailment but not the whole body.

He goes on to discuss how treating the symptom is not going to heal the person, they need to figure out what the real problem is, diet. We eat a ton of fast food and over processed packaged food that is not healthy for us. I admit that I’m one of those people. It’s easy to grab a frozen dinner or burger for lunch than it is to plan out and meal prep for a week. But all that we are doing is putting crap into our bodies. Do you wonder why were are in the shape we are in?

But it’s not just that. Our mind controls our bodies. What emotional baggage are we carrying around that is also adding to the inches on our waist? You’ve hear of comfort eating? Here is a great example. So until we can start working on these issues also we will still have a one ton weight around our necks dragging us down.

This is a great book and straight to the point when it says “Stop F**king Around.” It’s hard but to the point. You can’t improve until you get serious about your health. There is a lot of information about how we are sabotaging ourselves and keeping in the same rut. If you are serious about getting healthy this book is a great start. I just was expecting to have a little more about how we can improve our health instead of what is wrong with it. But I will be looking for more information to improve my own health.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Sherri Rosen Publicity for the opportunity to read and share this book.

Thread Of Hope by Rachel J. Bonner

Honesty is the best policy. Isn’t it?

What if your secrets are so dangerous they could destroy the one you love?

Prospero is prepared to tell Leonie most of his past – if he can find her – but one of his secrets could send her running again. Another could destroy any future they might have. And one could kill her. Dare he risk it?

Leonie is terrified of the consequences of sharing any of her past with anyone. But not even Leonie knows the secrets that her very existence contains.

Gabriel is starting to discover the secrets inherent in Leonie and they could tear the world apart. Who does he turn to, and who should he share them with? If he tells the wrong person he could seal not just Leonie’s death warrant but those of millions more.

And no one has told Leonie the mystery of her necklace. When she discovers that, will she sacrifice everything and risk all that Gabriel has been working for?

About the Author

Rachel J Bonner is the author of the four book Choices and Consequences series, the first of which, Strand of Faith, is due out in November 2018.

Getting a degree in engineering, followed by a career in accountancy is probably not a conventional path to becoming an author, particularly in paranormal romance.  Rachel says that, although accountancy isn’t anything like as boring as everyone thinks, writing is a lot more fun.  When not writing, she can be found walking in the beautiful countryside near where she lives, which has influenced much of the scenery in her books, or shooting things with her local archery club.  Target shooting only, honest.  Nothing to worry about.

She also enjoys swimming, eating chocolate chip cookies and growing aromatic herbs, especially thyme and rosemary.  It’s no coincidence that her heroine likes the same things.
