About the Author
Matt Stone is the founder of 180DegreeHealth. He is an independent health researcher and author of more than 10 books, including multiple titles that have made it to #1 in their respective categories on Amazon. Most of his research has drawn him towards metabolic rate and how many basic functions (digestion, reproduction, aging, immunity, inflammation, mood, circulation, sleep) perform better when metabolic rate is optimized. He is most notable for his criticisms of extreme diets and exposing many false diet industry claims, as well as his works on raising metabolic rate through simple changes in diet and lifestyle. His views and findings are discussed exhaustively on the site and cataloged in many of Stone's books available for sale through Amazon.

That being said, if I could change two things about this book I would take out the swear words and have someone with a technical writing degree or an editor actually edit it before going live. Both of these things would help create a more professional tone that would help establish credibility.
In terms of the actual message of the book though, I love it and it was exactly what I was hoping for when I purchased. The moral of the story is that you don't need to live your life constantly over analyzing everything you eat. If you just allow your body to eat as much as it wants of the food it craves then you will be on the right path to good health. I personally have been "dieting" of sorts ever since I started college. I'm now 24 years old and have tried several different fad diets all with declining success. Since incorporating the 180D lifestyle I have put on 35 lbs, but my waist size has only increased by about an inch, and I don't think it was because of fat. Also, when I first started following Matt's advice I noticed that I was practically an endless pit and wanted to eat all the time. A few months later, which is now, I have actually stopped having strong cravings for all food, which has made it an effortless transition to add some fruits and vegetables into the mix.
I would recommend this book to anyone, because it offers a very logical argument for human health. If you're still not convinced it's worth the price, Google 180 Degree Health by Matt Stone and read some of his recent blog postings to see if that does the trick. Good luck!
I also liked it a little less than the first book... But I still think the rest and refeeding method can be a great breakthrough for those suffering from food addictions, overdieting or eating disorders - as long as you take the information with a grain of salt. Which he would probably recommend.
Overall, I could have stuck with the first book (which was free) and avoided the overly inappropriate content and been just as happy.
Matt includes several references of other people and their work to support his work. The best thing to do is always try something new and different, finish it to completion, and then see for yourself if it worked for you.
I would like to see the ARF part and not just the RR part. I would like to see a longer list of metabolic symptoms as well as a list of foods that are healthy "junk" foods that raise metabolism/body temperature quickly and efficiently. I work with a supplement that is Isotonic, but I do wish to know how to create that isotonic form in foods, including how much to drink, like a formula or something. I also would like more information on drinking, amounts and symptoms one experiences when reducing fluid intake because I feel extremely thirsty, but I don't want to drink too much and cause my body temp to go down.
I'm very interested in Matt's work, I enjoyed many of his books already, and I'm looking forward to reading the rest of his books soon.
