I totally hear you. But ironically, because Peat's ideas are so "out there", I think you'll be hard pushed to find anyone who accepts him on blind faith.

It took at least six months of reading his work before I started implementing his suggestions. Zach and Derp can both attest to that. But once I did, I was amazed at how easy it all was. THe more I implement, the better I feel, and the more I think he has it right.
Change of topic: who here is doing the brown bag breathing? I tried it today - what a natural high!
I find it ironic that Knife challenged you to a body fat duel to prove that Primal is better than Peat, but while you're just eating your regular diet he's doing a steak and eggs hack...

In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
