  •  Well, considering the guy is a biochemist (1+ / 0-)

    I think he knows what he's talking about. He's made his millions on drug delivery systems for AIDS and other maladies.
    Further, FOOD, correctly induced, delivers it's some of its nutrients directly into the bloodstream, often bypassing the intestines.
    His theory is based on hormonal responses and how food affects the hormonal delivery. It's complicated..
    Anyway, I urge naysayers to read his first ZONE book where he explains his theories in great detail. You can probably get it at your local library (if it still exists!).
    Seriously, the guy knows his stuff.

    Isn’t it ironic to think that man might determine his own future by something so seemingly trivial as the choice of an insect spray. ~ Rachel Carson, Silent Spring ~

    •  Did a little research. (0+ / 0-)

      Dr. Sears approach is to acknowledge the effect food has on the release of intrinsic hormones. (That is not the principle of intravenous drug therapy, by the way.)

      Interesting that this should come up in the "Vegan Bubba" Diary because his "Zone Diet" is not really consistent with a strictly veggie diet.

      Here's an opinion piece from a vegetarian website:

      It's interesting, but I'll admit that I'm mostly troubled by his misleading use of medical language in publications for the layperson.

      It produces an "I don't know exactly what he's saying, but he sure sounds smart" readership that follows the precepts because they don't understand them, rather than because they do.

      "Jersey_Boy" was taken.
