bookshelves: what-the-fuck-was-that

This book mostly just annoyed me. The author comes across as one of those people who expect you to automatically believe everything they say, because of their credentials, not because of any facts they may have to back up their claims. He spent very little of the book talking about the actual process of fasting; this book is basically just a rant about how protein is poisoning you to death and we all need to eat nothing but plants. Every time I stumbled across something that seemed useful, he'd follow it up with something stupid, anecdotal, and outdated. I really wanted to like this book, but you will find more (and better) information online about fasting and the studies that support it than you will in this book. Huge disappointment.
