I read this directly after reading “Wheat Belly” by cardiologist William Davis. However, whilst I thought that book presented a good case, on occasion Dr Davis did seem to reach a bit with his hypothesis (although he tended to qualify his statements when he did) and it was clear there was more to the diabesity epidemic than his analysis allowed.
This is quite different to the experience I had reading this book, which is far more heavily cited, more holistic and presented with a compelling multi-dimensional logic that is hard to deny.
Whilst I’m personally quite healthy, I recently trialled a 5 day fast to test the claims of this book and I can attest that after about day 2 I had started to feel ok, and by days 4 and 5 I was feeling positively fantastic. In fact I don’t think I’ve ever been quite so productive and enthusiastic at work.
