I did the Anabolic Diet for quite a long time. The only reason that PB works for me better than anything I have tried in the past is that Mark laid it out in the book (and here) as to why all this shit is bad for you (i.e. grains, legumes, etc.)
Maybe I just needed that kick in the pants, but the PB finally got me to where I never thought I could be. I liked the AD cuz it's pretty close to what we do now, I just skip the carb load. I do, however, still consume carbs after a heavy training session (squats, deads, oly lifting) but do not have an all out day like I have in the past. I don't spend 2 days in a fricken carb coma anymore either, which is nice.
People too weak to follow their own dreams will always try to discourage others.
