The whole thing is a straw man. It seems like everyone is like Art and Loren who recommend trimming fat off of grass-fed meat and avoiding fatty cuts of meat OR eating bowls of coconut oil and pound of bacon for breakfast and dousing their chicken with heavy cream. Either people who advocate low-carb OR people eating just fruit. Either people saying fiber is teh devil or people scouring their poor colons with the stuff. Where is the middle way in all this?
I'll tell you that if I ate the diet his new wife describes my stomach would turn to sludge too.
I'd also be a lot more interested in his manifesto if it weren't laced with woo.
Also, I was reading his wife's blog and she was saying how she regrets eating beef and how bad conventional beef is for the environment blah blah blah. I'm like...who the heck is eating conventional beef? Then I remembered his stupid primal on a budget thing involved eating factory farmed meat, which I do believe is somewhat unhealthy. IMHO it's not a coincidence that he spent an entire series on how conventional beef is AOK. It all stems from his really quite un-compassionate libertarian worldview, he started the dumb experiment because he saw Food Inc and didn't believe that a poor family couldn't afford good food (hint: it's not just about money!!). So to prove that he started eating meat from a system that is cruel to both humans and animals. I don't believe in woo, but I'm surprised that he doesn't see the karma here.
