Yeah, well, amazing what paying attention to what you eat will do.
It isn't that a lot of what Ferris is doing is original at all, it is that he compiled a bunch of stuff he felt worked. Of course he did a ton of stuff all at the same time, didn't double blind, and had a lot of nonsense in there as well. So even if something is working in there, I doubt it is all of it (something even he admits).
Basically he is good at self promotion.
I basically started adding cinnamon to my morning coffee. So far that is about it. Thinking about PAGG, but it is too pricey to do just on a lark. Better to do fish oil and Vit D right now I think.
And I agree with the criticisms about how it is laid out. He should have had a checklist for each of the "programs" he lays out instead of making people comb through the text.
