Am I the only one that notices that fasting is an integral part of the PHD? As in an entire chapter?
I use it a lot in counseling, especially for research. I completely disagree with the fat recommendations when it comes to actual compliance though....I have found that if you take a person that cannot control their diet well and tell them "hey, 60% of your cals can come from fat" that you get a very frustrated patient. I have found that explaining carbs in relation to their fiber content, rather than their rote count, is a better way to go. 100g of carbs in rice (which I love, but do not recommend to patients) is not the same as 100g of carbs from eating apples, berries, salads, etc.
They do lay a lot of this out in the book, but unless someone really gets into the recommendations, you can get a pretty bad misunderstanding.
