I personally feel John Meadows distinguishes himself enough, in terms of nutrition, to be able to call it his own way of eating. The reason is the certain types of foods he likes to incorporate for liver health, adrenal health, digestive health, etc. Such as: red palm oil, lemon juice/cranberry juice, grass-fed stuff, kim chi, pineapple for digestion, and combining a low-GI carb with a good source of fat as a pre-workout meal for sustained energy (Ezekiel bread + butter).
Also: I don't think JM is trying to say (by putting his name on this 'diet') that he came up with anything new; it's just a way of marketing himself more easily to clients.
Note: my original post came off harsh. Didn't want to sound that way but that's how it came out. sorry.
