Description

For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.

"Easily the most important book on diet and health to be published in the past one hundred years. It is clear, fast-paced, and exciting to read, rigorous, authoritative, and a beacon of hope for all those who struggle with problems of weight regulation and general health." (Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize-winning author)

    "Comprehensive review of the actual science"

    As a scientist, though in a completely different field, i understand very well how this could have happened. Unfortunately, we are all liable to become victims of our egos, and treat our ideas as revelations making us prophets of truth, and anyone who has a different oppinion a heretic. Science is passion, and where there is passion there may also be blindness if we are not watching ourselves and consciously staying open minded. Needles to say, the growing pressure to publish ever more quickly and the focus on the quantity rather than the quality of the science is not conducive to open minded inquiery. I am saddened to see the situation is the same in medical science. I have been looking for a review of the dietary science behind healthy diet guidelines as i could not reconcile some of my own observations on my path to a healthy life with the accepted dogma. This book is providing a great review of the literature and clarified the situation a great deal. Now i understand why the dogma doesn't work, and where my reactions come from. I have suspected for some time that i was addicted to sugar and had noticed eating carbs tended to keep me hungry. Now if i could just as easily become a meat eater as it was understanding why carbs are fattening it would be great! I've spent most of my life eating meat more as a side dish, and never found it particularly paletable, especially when it comes to red meet, like beef or lamb. That's not likely to make curbing my carb addiction easy, but i'll live with it.
