I thought thin commandments had good points but I found his rigid stance on his particular diet very off putting. He advocates a highly processed diet trading nutrient dense food for low fat or artificially sweentened foods that are lower in calories.
I don't want to eat fat free hot dogs and fat free cheese (american cheese no less)
And what does he have against red bell peppers
Just a heads up to those that try to avoid plans that have a lot of 'you must eat this cracker, etc'. That really sets off my inner rebel.
That aside, if you scrap the actual 'diet' I think what he has to say has a lot of value. I personally just struggled with focusing on the good while trying to ignore his obsession with laughing cow cheese.
