Barry Sears' Zone stuff is both healthier and more effective than these extreme diets like Atkins/Eades on one side or Pritikin/McDougall on the other. And Atkins' "mentor", Carlton Fredericks, died of a heart attack @ 76. (No idea re. the quiet British scientist whose work both shamelessly ripped off as their own, albeit with footnotes in Atkins' diet books). And he "recycled" the same crap into "Dr. Atkins' New Diet Revolution" to get more $ from previous customers; and only started to fund actual studies after making millions first; was totally oblivious to "good vs. bad fats", and to effect on kidneys of excreting excess protein over many years; pushed every holistic cure-all for everything...
