HOWEVER this is actually a good diet. Basicaly, you get a good balance of macro nutrients (protein, fat, and carbs), spaced out throughout the day, with reasonable portion control. It is mostly common sense to eat a 30:30:40 balance of protein, fat, and carbs (i.e. everything in moderation), but the author seems to think he's invented the wheel. And, then, he makes it way more complicated than it needs to be, with math that's explained in a convoluted way. Ignoring the fussy details, this is basicaly how I've been eating the past year and a half, while lifting once or twice a week, and ive lost 60 lbs while maintaining muscle mass, and i feel great. I just wish that, as a scientist myself, the book didn't make me cringe in anguish. And, I don't know why he has to be down on all grains, when some grains have a low glycemic index, like whole rye (e.g. the heavy dense german bread bricks), whole or steel cut oats, quinoa, etc. He mocks other diets for making unnecessary rules, and then he sets up unnecessary rules.
If you want a simpler version of this diet, here it is: Wear a fitbit, record everything you eat in the app, keep calories in lower than calories burned on the food graph, make sure the macronutrient pie chart on the app stays close to 30:30:40 protein:fat:carbs (honestly, depending on how many calories you burn per day, 25:25:50 is easier to do and is pretty close), and avoid food with a high glycemic index. That'll about do it.
This is chemistry that has won the NOBLE PRIZE!! Sear's is right about the importance of insulin. Anyone intersted in reading more facts about insulin should read Diabetes be David Nathan MD or the AMERICAN DIABETES ASSOCATION Complete Home Guide to Diabetes. Ernest Boehm , Diabetic and Chemist
