good advice mixed with pseudoscience
on 4 June 2014
Some very good advice - avoid sugar, grains and poisonous chemicals, include healthy fats, get some exercise, but I think we knew that anyway. The rest is mostly pseudo-science or health claims with minimal evidence and some gimmicky self-tests. Very thin bibliography, consisting mainly of papers by Bruce Ames and almost nothing from the last ten years. "Inspirational" style of writing (uses the word "sexy" a lot). I disliked it (serves me right for being seduced by the title!) but worth three stars for the anti-sugar message.
