Telling us that a low fat diet is contrary to numerous studies that shows that a high fat diet is good for health. The brain is made from fat after all. And telling that it doesn't matter what you eat but have a calorie deficit is bull because what you it triggers various hormones, and this limiting of calories is less feasible to do than to cut out carbohydrates. Fat for Fuel is one good book to read. Grain Brain is also a good book to read about fats being better for the brain. And there is much more research about the brain. I don't want his orthodox opinions, and uncited thank you very much.
