But note that Sears, while making large amounts of money from marketing his
books, nutritional programs, and other products, has not actually bothered
to scientifically validate his claims. His book sounds quite plausible, and
I think it makes some good points, but his main claims are far from well
grounded in studies. His grand claims are backed by results from a tiny
number of people. It makes sense to me to lower carbohydrates (compared to
the US average), especially those with a high glycemic index, but Sears
particular claims go way beyond the evidence.
