Understanding the science behind what goes on in our bodies when we eat certain foods can often be difficult with out the aid of a biology/chemistry degree.
Gary Taub makes this information easy to understand, critical in the current dietary climate of misinformation, based on old and flawed research.
He presents an argument, backed with research that he presents in such a way it's easy to understand and hard to refute.
It will make you reconsider the way you think about health, diet, exercise, weightloss and why we get fat.
This is a pretty long book, with a lot of history and background information. It was significantly better to listen to the book than read it (I would never have finished the book).
He covered all his bases with a lot of evidence - both scientific and anecdotal.
Solid though mistaken
The complete flip of the cause of retaining fat. I really like this flip-side view and getting rid of the calories in/calories out math.
Chamberlain consistently read "causal" as "casual" and "causality" as "casualty". It made for some confusing passages regarding the scientific study results.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book and will likely listen to a few chapters again. Well done for those, like me, who benefit from a detailed explanation.
The reader's voice was easy on the ears and allowed me to focus on the content.
Overall, well done!
if you want to know more of the reasons on how he was able to come up with this information, Good Calories Bad Calories is an excellent book but this gets to the point much faster
I like that this is a diet book that talks about the metabolic process of weight loss. It does not just give you rules for what to eat but conveys the facts of how our body processes food.
But is does get a little boring.
great explanation of the way the fat accumulation works in human body. but can say more only after following it and saying the results myself. will certainly update with the results.
This book was a big help to me in understanding my condition and how to get to a healthier state.
