I finally completed GCBC this morning after reading it for 3 months. Wow! What an epic! The depth of analysis, research and scholarship gone into writing it is just amazing. I thought this thread could serve to help those who are yet to read the book by providing some of the salient points discussed.
The more I read books/articles on traditional/real foods, the more I realize how the work of Weston A. Price has been a great influence on them. Gary Taubes quotes WAP's "Nutrition and Physical Degeneration" as among the most ifluential books he's read. Nina Planck, author of Real Foods and a former-vegan, changed her eating philosophy after reading WAP.
Even if the majority of the people cannot adopt Primal/Paleo eating, switching to eating traditional, real foods would be a HUGE shift in the right direction. We can only hope that the CW Stone cracks really soon.
