Garth Davis has done an amazing job with this book. The science is strong showing harms from over-consumption of protein -- especially ANIMAL protein which Davis documents well here, in the context of his own ignorance as an MD specializing in bariatric surgery, who also was struggling with weight gain and health problems.
.
It is sad that so many people who have felt better on paleo or low-carb diets mis-attribute what exactly about those diets is responsible for their improved feelings of well-being. Although Davis does not explicitly address gluten, I think there is much evidence to support that GLUTEN is probably the cause of many symptoms, and the explanation for why there are people who become EVANGELICAL about paleo (or low carb) diets after trying them, as these are probably the first times in their life that they reduced or eliminated gluten.
