Unless you have been living under a rock, you should know most of the information in this book. Dr. Murad spends his time stating the obvious and bragging about his accomplishments. While he has done well, I did not expect to spend my time reading about how large his ego is and instead hoped to learn something new. I can sum this book up in one sentence--Dr. Murad thinks very highly of himself and thinks you should drink more water and eat healthier (hopefully getting water from some of the food ...more

With an anti-ageing angle as its primary focus The Water Secret challenges our beliefs when it comes to how we hydrate our body's. It is Dr. Murad's opinion, through research and lengthy studies on his very own clients, that we actually receive better quality water from fruits than a bottle of Evian simply because of its structure, but this alone is not enough. He guides us with tips, advice and a few home truths, that are so very relevant for the modern day person, on how to take better care of ...more

An eye opener

It truly was a secret revealed. Thank you for writing this book. This is a book that surely needs to be revisited since there is a lot of information every time even if I have one takeaway that will be a life changer. My first takeaway is to have consistent sleeping habits

Pretty simple concepts (incorporate water dense foods in your diet and take certain supplements and eat healthy) and very repetitive.

3.5 actually. Informative but not that new. There’s something that’s not necessarily right.

While it's a bit "one size fits all" this is an interesting look at Howard Murad's theory that we need to get water more from water-rich foods than by just drinking water, that this will improve your skin and your life.

He also subscribes to the 80/20 rule, where so long as 80% of the time your diet is good, you should be fine, which I also liked. On page 182 he had a quote I thought was worth writing down "You have no control over the cards that are dealt to you. But, you do have control over ho

I ordered this book to get some free products and I really liked it. It has a lot of diet tips as well as different ways to think about how you consume water. This book would be really good for long distance athletes. I actually went through it with a highlighter because it reminded me of an updated version of some of the things I learned in nursing school, particularly my nutrition classes. This was definitely a pleasant surprise.

This was a good book, but none of the information was really new to me. There were some good recipes and he goes into depth about some supplements to take, but basically the whole idea of the book is to eat healthy (water rich foods), take supplements, exercise, and limit stress. It's not a must read, but has good information if you're a beginner.

I easily remembered his main point of the bill by like page five: eat more water-dense foods and balance that with exercise and a healthy lifestyle. Book got monotonous by about page 25. He writes and advises in circles.

I liked that this book was mostly common sense. No drastic "diet" plans or crazy supplements to take. I also enjoyed that it had a section on skincare.

Some of the information is basic knowledge, but I did learn quite a few new things from this book. It made me take a new look at the way I eat!

Interesting points on how to hydrate your body, inside and out, and the different ways dehydration can manifest.

Most of this book is stuff I already know, but the part about intracellular volume is helpful, and will change the way I eat for sure. I think highly of Dr. Murad when it comes to skin care.

I ordered this book on amazon and got $200 worth of free Murad products. That's basically why I bought the book, however I really liked it and it seemed to make sense to me.

“wrongly taught that fruit can cause weight gain due to its sugar content and that starchy vegetables such as squash and potatoes are “bad” because they contain so many carbohydrates. Much to the contrary, fruits and vegetables contain a wealth of nutrients that support cellular health and facilitate the transportation of water into the cells for use.” 1 likes
“toxins. But certain foods can help optimize your body’s natural purification system. These include cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cauliflower, and kale, all of which contain compounds that help the liver break down harmful forms of estrogen for safe elimination. Onions, leeks, chives, garlic, and shallots are rich in sulfur to fortify detox pathways in the liver. Plants from the thistle family—artichokes, dandelions, and burdock—enhance liver function by upping bile flow.” 0 likes
