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 perhaps 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 bestseller 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 Nutritional therapy is often overlooked in medical school, and the information provided to physicians is often outdated.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 wreak havoc on your system. In this book, 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:

  • how doctors are taught to think about nutrition and other preventative health measures, and how they should be thinking
  • how the Food Pyramid and MyPlate came into existence and why they should change
  • the facts about fat intake and heart health
  • the truth about the effects of whole wheat on the human body
  • the role of dairy in your diet
  • the truth about salt—friend or foe?
  • the 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!

Dr Berry is a doctor that truly honours the Hippocratic oath. He has the courage to take a step back and to challenge the establishment for the benefit of his patients and people all around the world. The real testament to his character is that he shares actionable advice online for free as well, no holds barred! I purchased the book out of sheer gratitude to his work and to honour his work. The book is amazingly put together, packed full of useful and actionable information. I will be suggesting it to anyone I know that wants to b in charge of their own health and well-being. Thank you Dr Berry!

Thanks, Dr. B, for another expanded edition of this wonderful book. Filled with great content that is approachable and easy to comprehend for the average Jane/Joe concerned about their health. Your no-nonsense and scientifically backed approach is what most physicians lack. Wish everybody did their research like Dr. Ken!

This is an excellent book. It is extremely informative as well as a joy to read. Everyone should read this book because these Lies are pervasive and persistent. Dr.Berry is a courageous medical doctor who is risking everything to try to shine a light on all of the lies we've all been told---my doctor is STILL talking about eating a low-fat/high-carb diet having never done her research! How lucky are we to have found a doctor like Ken Berry who does his research and cares about the health and longevity of his patients---even if we can only interact through his book. I am forever grateful to Dr. Berry.

Dr Berry reseaches the reseach. Or should I say the lack of reseach. This is an amazing book. I loved it so much that I purchased both the original and the second edition. Plus I even bought the audio book to listen in my car. I am telling everyone I know to read this. Thank you Dr Berry or all you do.

This is a very informative read. It is such a relief to be able to get the truth about our healthcare from someone who isn't afraid to challenge what they were taught and is willing to learn new things to help people live a healthier life.
