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.
I support the Ideal Protein Diet and so does this book! Taubes breaks down the history and research regarding carbohydrate restriction.
I have been skeptical of all fad diets but it was really shocking to see how much real scientific evidence there actually is. This is not a fad at all. Fat or not, everyone can likely benefit from rethinking their intake of sugars and processed grains. Another way to think of it is that there is no upside to eating these things and a large potential upside by avoiding them.
Interesting to hear the science behind why we get fat. It's not as simple as eating more calories than we use up. Definitely have a new perspective on the value of fat in our daily nutrition.
