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?

Why would you fast if you're hungry all the time? You're obviously extremely active, so don't be afraid to go mod-high carb. People who have leaned out tend to benefit from reintroducing carbs.
