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.
"They now look to a single and splendid government of an aristocracy, founded on banking institutions, and moneyed incorporations under the guise and cloak of their favored branches of manufactures, commerce and navigation, riding and ruling over the plundered ploughman and beggared yeomanry." - Thomas Jefferson, 1826
