The people who do the interpreting of Peat, primarily Danny Roddy and Matt Stone are bloggers who are only in it for the money. Roddy panders to guys who are insecure about losing their hair and Matt appeals to the type of dieter who is fed up with diets because they always take it too far so now they take it too far in the opposite direction and have a pizza, ice cream and soda fest. Each of them cherry pick isolated bits and pieces of Peat's writings to cite as "scientific" backing for their claims.
But if you actually go back and read the actual Peat himself, it is amazingly dense and rambling and massively incoherent and extremely vague. It's like tarot cards. You can interpret it to mean anything you want. I'm a fairly literate person having a doctorate in Education and having published works of my own. I read his stuff and I can't figure out what his point is. I understand the concepts but it is written in such a disjointed way that you keep wondering when he is going to get to the point or if there ever even was one.
Besides, Peat's writings just reek of snake oil to me. Every one about various physical maladies, etc. keeps leading back to the same root problems in the thyroid. All women and most men have estrogen dominance issues and he convinces people of this with a list of every possible vaguely worded ailment under the sun at least one of which applies to just about everybody, things such as "fatigue, headaches, insomnia, low libido" (which could easily be caused by a host of other problems). But no, your problem, my friend, is estrogen dominance. I, since I'm such a nice guy, will provide you with the solution to your problem in the form of my very own patented "Dr. Peat" name brand progesterone oil (for only $29.99 per .25oz bottle plus shipping and handling). And don't listen to your doctor who tells you that all the tests show you are fine. He is just a money grubbing part of the Big Pharma machinery. I, Ray Peat, retired college professor, know your pain and will be happy to sell you the solution.
