Deluded, Dangerous, Ex Vegan Wanabee Rock star in The Sun

I ditched ‘healthy’ vegan diet for meat and went from fatboy to slim | The Sun |Woman|Health|Health

Article about a dangerous new book (well the cover is) by a delusional wanabee ex vegan rock star who tries to convince Sun readers that's it's not the fact that his new diet forgoes starchy carbs, sugar and sugary foods and processed foods that helped him lose the weight and cure his IBS. nor was it the increased intake of green leafy veg. Deluded John Nicholson flies in the face of scientific study and ubiquitous research and claims "It's the meat what fixed me!" He is duly awarded the Plantarian 'Twonk of the Week' award

Trouble is he's telling people what they want to hear so no doubt the gimmick to sell his book, The Meat Fix, will work. Even I want to read it so I can prove how irresponsible he is.
