    You can find accompanying attachment on the bottom of "Publisher's Summary" which is on the top of the page for the book here on Audible. The link says "Download the accompanying reference guide". I have to admit it was not obvious place to look and took me few minutes to realize it was there.

  • Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It

    "Worth the read, but flawed"

    Overall

    Story
    Any additional comments?


    Gary Taubes' “Why We Get Fat” (WWGF) is an engaging summary of the science related to human weight gain. Taubes cites numerous research articles, case studies, and social/cultural situations to support the hypothesis that obesity is a result of our bodies inability to effectively digest select carbohydrates. The more complex the carbohydrate (bread, rice, potatoes,...) the higher the probability an individual will gain weight. This carbohydrate digestive processing program is also idiosyncratic, effecting some while not others.

    WWGF reads like a doctoral dissertation attempting to support the argument that excess carbohydrates are responsible for excess human weight gain and corresponding health problems. Taubes espouses that diets high in protein and fat with restricted intake of complex carbohydrates not only results in weight loss, but are the healthier for the body. WWGF also reports that although exercising is beneficial to the human body, it relationship to weight lose is inconclusive at best. At this moment many readers may be saying “What the What”? According to Taubes you have been brain washed by the dieting industry and he has the research to prove it.

    The strength of WWGF is Taubes debunking many long established weight lose myths. For example, the myth that weight lose occurs when calories consumed are exceeded by calories expended (called the first law of thermodynamics). For Taubes, the solution to society's obesity problem is not reducing time sitting on couch, but the replacing complex carbohydrates with copious amounts fat/proteins. Does this make sense? To Taubes the research is clear and Americans have been mislead into thinking dieting is an excess calorie problem.

    There are two major drawbacks to the WWGF. Taubes arguments and theories are not independently verified. He does not conduct the hard scientific experiment to justify his claims. As a reader you keep waiting for him to discuss that well controlled study that will allow you to start eating steak for three meals per day. That study never materializes. A second weakness is WWGF does not provide any guidance on the types of carbohydrates you should focus on relative to weight lose. His best advice is to replace high insulin producing carbs with green leafy carbs. WOW and Thank you!

    WWGH is a great book for readers interested in a more than passing interest in weight lose. The book is very well written, flows, and the information is easily digestible.

    I am very glad I got this book. I think it started a bit slow, and could have skipped the first 1.5 hours which is more about the authors personal story. But some might like the background stuff.
    I am fairly self educated on healthy clean eating, and think what I heard here is solid and quality information. I think every-one, in the world, could benefit from the information provided and practicing the cleanse and re-balancing of the digestive system.
    I googled the book and see he also has some You Tube videos, check them out first to see if you like his style. He also has a website selling a supplement program, but I was able to get enough info out of the book to design my own, since I dont live in North America I have to make due with what is available to me here.
    All in all, a good book and worth a listen if you are looking to improve your health in a very real way.

    Combining modern genetic science and evolutionary biology, The Primal Blueprint dispels a number of the myths that modern medicine and conventional wisdom have come to accept as fact. Author Mark Sisson takes the listener on a fascinating journey through human evolution, comparing the life and robust health of our hunter-gatherer ancestors with a day in the life of a modern family - exposing potential health issues that arise from trying to do the right things living in the 21st century.
