What a phenomenol recommendation from one dietician to another...

The cost of double-blind studies (and the hypocrysie? of treating one group, while letting the other suffer), is a barrier to many real "scientific" evaluations...

Dr D s books are constantly on the best seller lists!
that s proof enough that his school is serving as guidance to many practitioners and healers out there, and thus achieving constant results and recommending the books, and so on!!
it s an avalanche!

That's exactly what I just did ABJoe. Dr. D gave the link of another RD. Did you see it?

I just read the woman's review and, to a significant degree, I find her just plain lazy, frivolous, and, even, spoiled in her fundamental attitude.

As I've said before, the only legitimate complaint I believe to exist about the GTD is that it doesn't present itemized rationales for the inclusion of each individual food, as was done with the BTD Encyclopedia... However, even the first ER4YT book didn't go that far in depth, and took time to get there.

Now, with that said, there is an easy justification I can imagine for the itemized rationales not being there:  the fact that many people profess to find all that stuff overwhelming, and just whine that they want only the bottom line... Does the diet work or not.  So I can understand why such exhaustive information may not have been included.  But, apparently, you just can't win with some people.

Also, perhaps Dr. D is trying to keep certain things proprietary, just as Microsoft or any successful business is perfectly well entitled to do, with regard to their valued trade secrets.  In that case, disclosure would be ill-advised.

In many ways, I blame the general disposition of much of the public for the fact that the GTD gave them the bottom line, rather than exhaustive rationales.  Yes, the general rationales were given but, apparently, no matter what D'Adamo does, there will always be certain people who are pre-motivated to find an excuse to smear it.

You remember my birthday???  

Well, I hadn't planned anything for my birthday, actually.  I was just going to play it by ear.

I did find out that a wrongly-imprisoned man named Alton Logan was just released after 26 years of two lawyers keeping the rock-solid evidence of his guilt literally locked in a vault.  So that definitely makes me happy.
