    Very interesting book. She pretty much says what you need is moderate protein and fat to satisfy the appetite. She's not a big carb fan at all from what I remember. Maybe I'm wrong. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

    Great read, highly recommend, great addition to the library.
    You'll never see the light if you're in someone else's shadow, or said another way, life is like a dog sled team, if you're not the lead dog, the scenery never changes

    She is one smart lady. I listen to all her podcasts. They're right up there with the best of them like Robb Wolf and Jimmy Moore.

    She advocates basically the same things. High (good quality) fat + enough protein + low carb + short intense exercise + enough sleep + low stress...

    Check out her podcasts:

    I have read her blog. Some great research, no doubt about it. I wonder why she isn't mentioned more in the primal/paleo community? Lady Groks can be just as awesome. She is like a chick version of Mark.

    Anyone who wants to talk nutrition should PM me!

    Reading Amazon reviews, most glowing, some slam it as being very sloppy. I haven't read it.

    Her book was the first time I'd heard of benfotiamine, or the ways of leptin and the TOR pathway. The detail got me down some, but I think I'm ready for a second read.
