    I find it hard to read. The content is good but I felt like I NEEDED the search to find what I am looking for. Especially when I was looking for some protocols related to a problem that was placed under a different headline.


    It feels a bit like a collection of illnesses that you can fix however it seems incomplete. There is much more info on your blog that I would add to the book. Sometimes I need you blog to get all the info. Also I would add more scientific basics in the beginning of the book. Explaining it all. I like it when it gets technical. I don't like those stupid patient stories that I can see in all books. I also hate it when there are no references to studies or scientific articles.


     


    I like Body By Science and Why isn't my Brain working because they have a lot of refs to their studies and people can complain about it if they want or not. Also they both can get very technical. I don't like Why isn't my Brain Working for all these stupid stories everywhere.... BBS also has a few of them but not so many if I remember correctly. That is fine.


     


    The Wahls Protocol is also full of these stories and not technical enough. However it has some nice instructions on how to hack your biology and tables with bloodworks and examples of diaries and such things while sticking to a laymans level in writing. I like that. Introduce the audience to a topic with the fundamentals. Then get technical and then provide answers, then maybe make a review at the end. I must say I do not like The Bulletproof Diet Book. I did not read it entirely but I am missing a lot of stuff like references to studies or getting more into detail when it comes to topics where he has no studies but personal experiences like the garlic problem. Even when it comes to Ayurveda principles I would have liked to read where these ayurvedic principles came from. Was it the great indian master monk who told him that in person or was it some random blog post from the internet without any real background.... Also I don't like those sketchy neighborhoods and descriptions like that. Like as if the reader was stupid... it's too simple.  Sorry for bashing the bp diet book I am writing this from the viewpoint of a biohacker and I am not new to the topic but more of an advanced reader. So think about that as well. Who is your reader.


     


    EDIT: I read the book a while back so maybe I am referring to an old version.


     




    I read it a while back. From what I remember, after reading the book I changed my defecation posture and started taking magnesium glycinate instead of citrate.


    Those habits aside it's one of my go to books when looking up stuff. The 'search' function is super useful.



    May you be well, may you be happy, may you be healthy, may you be loved.

    the book is a first of its kind for all that i know, and thats amazing already, i also love the staright to the point aspect of it


    I'm also using it as a first 'go-to' book when looking up stuff,


    i think whats lacking is that for most protocols the duration is not mentioned


    if anyonw knows of any other book that looks at gut health the way 'fix your gut' does, id love to hear recommendations

  •  Your book is already on my to-read list. Just waiting for it’s turn, while I’m expecting this forum.  :cool:

    I know and that is why I wrote in the amazon review that the blog is a great addition to the book.
