I am reading this book, having seen it touted in Underground Wellness. It is well-researched and endorsed by many key researchers. The only Q I have so far is the focus on zero and low-fat foods. Why? Can anyone make sense of this?
Theres a new Q&A website for people that follow Ray peat and it has private messaging and polls and I think some other things (http://peatarian.com). Is it possible to have those kind of things on here too?
