This review is from: Ammonium Sulphamate 1Kg
I've used this before and I know it works. To use it is not to indulge in some curious biochemical fantasy like glyphosate, which it is everybody' duty to give up, but its a simple degradable chemical compound. The only fault I found with the supplier is that instructions were missing. Not too serious

1.0 out of 5 stars Dangaerous., 6 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a dangerous book, muddled in parts and grossly misleading. The good fats (which one is encouraged to use) include all the vegetable oils such as colza, safflower, cottonseed, etc.. In reality these fats promote inflammation and ill-health, because they provide too much 0mega 6 fatty acids, and too little omega 3.

Butter is described as a bad fat whereas it is one of the best.

The authors description of the ketogenic diet is confusing (well it confused me) and her recipes include too many carbohydrates to be successfully "ketogenic".

If you're going to climb on the ketogenic bandwaggon Mrs Williams learn more before committing pen to paper.


COCONUT KETOGENIC DIET
COCONUT KETOGENIC DIET

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very scientific - can I trust it ?, 6 Nov. 2014
This review is from: COCONUT KETOGENIC DIET (Paperback)
Not very scientific. Most of the book seems to make sense, but there are major errors.

Mr Fife confuses the calorie unit used in the dietetic field with the scientific calorie unit. A dietary calorie is 1000x bigger than the scientific one.

The old chestnut about water intake is repeated uncritically: it is not necessary for all one's fluid intake to be pure water for it to have value. A pint of milk yields as much hydration to one's body as a pint of pure water.

I read from the book that "alcohol" must be diluted with eight times its volume of water to be "safe". Beer already is (5% alcohol to 90% water), so is wine. Spirits are the exception (40% alcohol to 60% water).

I am fed up with writers who do not deal rationally with the facts. I do, why don't they ?

4.0 out of 5 stars Seems OK, 22 May 2014

Good price. It works and even if it doesn't last very long (only time will tell) it is almost certainly better value for money than the rapaciously priced Ryobi equivalent

5.0 out of 5 stars Difficult to be excited about sodium ascorbate, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate and sodium ascorbate seem to be the three most economical sources of ascorbate. Ascorbic acid is, well, acid and taken regularly could challenge the blood acidity. Calcium ascorbate tastes very bitter, and you risk overdosing on calcium in the long term. Might be useful to use potassium ascorbate but I haven't seen it for sale, sodium ascorbate is the one for me.

Oh dear ! I got a bit carried away.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book arrived too late to use, 22 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this from The Book Depository who delivered so late that it arrived after the holiday which it was supposed to help. I do not not recommend relying on their delivery estimates. Quite cynical I thought. But the book itself looks marvellous. A varied galaxy of walks (difficult to find in mapless Spain) and the coverage of plants and birds seemed to be spot-on.

Buy it but not from this supplier.

4.0 out of 5 stars A treatment that works, 27 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've been following a variant of this book's suggested cure and so far its worked - certainly better than falling for all the dangerous cholesterol/statin nonsense which leads so many to early graves. This book should be saying something about vitamin K2 which apparently can reverse plaque formation...

...but that's recent research.

Book cost below normal price - a bargain

5.0 out of 5 stars Offroad, 26 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought some vivibarefoot shoes this summer and although I love the comfort of them on flat surfaces they are difficult on rough tracks. These trainers solve the problem very well. These should probably be bought before the shoes as they protect the feet better in the early stages in 'barefoot' training.
