OP, I can totally relate to what you are feeling. My own journey back to health started when I learned about pink slime. There was so much contradictory information, that at times I wanted to cry from the frustration of trying to figure it out.
The PB was so logical and so right minded, and best of all, it resonated with much of the stuff I knew had worked for me in the past. Lower carb than CW, though I don't aim for ketosis. The emphasis on good animal products. The idea that one meal a day isn't just for freaks. Exercising for health rather than destroying one's body by over-conditioning. And the new stuff for me (no wheat, legumes, soy) was easier than I thought, though goddess help me, I've had dreams about brie cheese and sourdough baguettes.
In the end, by taking what had worked for me in the past (food journals/calories), and almost everything PB advises (I get about 50% of my calories from fat rather than 70%), I put together a very healthy, varied eating plan that I can live with and never feel deprived. And though I'm not retired yet, I'm within sneezing distance, so I really did need to get my shit together.
