The first part of the book states how meat and fats are bad so keep at around 4oz per day.The back recipes are total opposite with meat chops of which you need 4 thick organic sirloin steaks.He writes that you should be eating %80 percent carbs so where are all the carb rich recipes?Spinach,peas as ingredients when I read that these are trigger foods for many?!
