    F-Factor has some shortcomings

    I am a Nutritionist and was initially excited to read her book. I actually thought her essential concept was very progressive and rather interesting. The problem is though, there are some factual errors in the book, which as a nutritionist and writer I feel were uncalled for. I also found the scientific basis for a few of her concepts were tweaked to suit her agenda. She is a lady with good intentions..the book just fell short on science. I wouldnt say not to buy it. the concept of fiber being a good method for weight loss is great, its just those above shortfalls that I mentioned.
