This is much less weird than it sounds. Stick with me.
At the beginning of nutrition school a lecturer told us we would go through all sorts of experimental health & wellness phases during the course of the program. We were taught over 100 dietary theories, so one week we would study the benefits of a strict vegan diet from raw foodists like David Wolfe, and the next week experience a very convincing lecture from the Weston A. Price Foundation proving the benefits of the liberal use of butter and unpasteurized, full fat milk and animal products.
