I agree completely.
There's also the Aragon article (not journal paper--a big difference) that used that study to over-reach in the other direction (IMO). At this point, I'm starting to think that I need to get the original journal paper and never go by any review. Fortunately, I can get these papers very easily and free.
I should've placed more caveats on my "highlights" of the pilot study. I do research for a living, but not medical or physiological research. MY comments should be taken with a grain of salt also, although I did my best. I'd describe the pilot study as simply being inconclusive, although a few interesting trends *might've* been starting to emerge.
In the end, the proof will be in the IF Black Box pudding.
