I've been reading about it since it came out. I'm not a forum warrior but I do read a lot of the site. Most of what I know about fasting I learned from XFLD, the Pulse Fast article, and a few little tid-bits here and there. It seems very interesting and I'm pretty sure it would, and does, work pretty good, and I will have to agree with you that some of the marketing is way overblown. When I was reading it though, all I could think was “This is pretty straight forward. Couldn't I just do this with the supplements I already have that are much cheaper then Biotest?”
