I am a firm believer in everything in moderation!! That being said, I love to be in the sun!! I love to eat a nice rare steak!! I love full fat ice cream!! Okay, now here is my problem with his ideas, you don't get the research to back them up unless you pay!!!
Any reputable person/study makes their data available to the person willing to look for it without charging, such as through an online data base or published in a research journal. Some of what Kevin Treudeua touts does work, I have seen it work for some people!! My mother in law lives by his book. I tried a few of the ideas, and saw no real results. My point, some of this works for some people. Evaluate how many people were studied, was it a single study or a series of studies. Even a blind pig will find a truffle once in a while, or even a quack researcher will find something that fits his theory once in a while.
Take it with a grain of salt. I do great with giving up soda and a lot of extra caffine. I didn't give up on coffee totally! I cut back from 2 12-cup pots a day to 2-3 cups per day!! I am not grumpy. My mother in law is grumpy if she has less than 2 pots of coffee a day. It is all personal.

Somewhere in there he claims to have data but of course he only discloses that if you buy his monthly report or something. I'm curious about the data. I might try it out just to check his claims. I'm skeptical about some of his theories but others ring true. I wonder how much of the data out there that we take for granted is fudged by companies who have a stake in us believing what they want us to believe.
You choose your reality. Choose wisely.

I found an interesting article on the net today and although I don't agree with everything he says, he certainly raises some good questions and started me thinking - What do I believe about what will make me healthy and why do I believe it?
I'd love to here your take on these ideas. If you agree with one of his positions, why do you? If you don't, why don't you?
Also, I would love to see some links to data gathered by someone not supported by a company with a conflict of interest. I bet that kind of data is rare.
