7lbs in 7 days Jason Vale

Jason “The Juice Master” Vale’s “7lbs in 7 days: Super juice Diet” is a book I read in conjunction with Task 81 of my Day Zero Project.

I really don’t like his writing style; and I have to take issue with some of the things he writes, while most of what he says makes sense; his lack of proper citation, he tends to writes “a report indecates” or “a study shows”; what would be nice is if we could be given full reference to the original research either in footnotes; or as an end note. I know this is a ‘self help book’ designed for the Jeramy Kyle watching masses; but I would prefer a more journal quality article.

He is also an advocate of ProBiotics; his preferred one is “acidophilus bacteria” (Lactobacillus Acidophilus) ; he describes as “good quality friendly bacteria” [page 103], however Probiotics have no documented benefit (will look for better citations); here is a recent article about advertising of them.

I have Jason Vale’s “The Juice Master: Turbo-Charge your life in 14 days” on my to read pile
