The premise is a good one but there is a lot of confusion. In one area of the book he refers to avocado as a vegetable, but in another it is a fat. Coffee, he suggests without cream or sugar. In previous chapters he allows cream and sweeteners. He doesn't address alcohol but I would think a dry wine would be okay. In the allowed vegetables is listed beets and yet he says not to eat any vegetable you wouldn't eat raw. While he tell you how many servings of each category you can have each day, you have to flip through the rest of the book to find what is the applicable portion sizes.

A very interesting read and it makes a lot of sense. I just think it should have been simpler when applying theory to practice.

Interesting look at what foods we should eat and how we should exercise -- including a look at how broken the food pyramid is. Now to see if following the ideas within actually work... the science suggests it should!
