I employ the PB-Test yearly, kinda like a gut/energy reboot!
Morals aside, based on my experience, the '5 Day PB-Test' is well worth your investigation. It seriously can't hurt.
Those finishing the PB-Test, report; improved gut health, post meal energy boost, being lead to their ideal weight, and enhanced sleep.

My 5 Day PB Project will be, for many, considered boring.
I prefer repeatability for breakfast - BP'S Nutritious Nine,
Before work, I'll fry up and contain my lunch,
My lunch fry up is simple; butter (golfball), salt, garlic + whatever veggies I can find.
I enjoy mushrooms, green beans, snow peas, asparagus, almonds, & sunflower seeds.
Dinner requires thought & preparation (for 5 Days).
I veggie stack (whatever), adding a tomato sauce, a dash of cream, and cheese, baking for 30 mins @ 180' is easiest.
