Okay people....ready for a paradigm shift? This book will FOREVER change your perspective on food, how your body uses food, what causes fat storage and what stimulates weight loss. The physical anthropolist in me completely agrees! Just finished it and I am going to dive right back in and listen again to undo all the programming I have received from less informed (and far more financially motivated) sources. Hope you get a chance to check it out. Worth your time, and just may save your life!
I really enjoyed how Taubes was able to simply describe in detail a perfect summary highlighting the most important parts of his masterpiece, Good Calories, Bad Calories. After listening to this it is quite apparent what the main issues are in our health and nutrition world and what to do about them. I believe it also sets the listener up to the possibility of checking out good calories, bad calories if you're intrigued.
I really enjoyed the way the author broke it down into very digestible parts even though it's a huge story with tons of information
I almost gave up on it after a very long time of the book going around in circles before making a point.
The "no-carb" point is good, albeit not new. The book is clearly well researched. But man is it long! Unreasonably so.
Very useful information but I consider that it should not be taken literally. It is redundant and in my opinion prejudiced against health care providers. Interpretation of "research studies" could have been done more explicitly in order to minimize bias and probably by someone more apt to interpret said studies. Overall it is worth reading, but should not be used as a reference book.
I really enjoyed this book because it was so educational! You will still need to find a diet book but this knowledge will put you on the right path.
This is a great book for all of us who have ever struggled with weight and health, and debunks many of the wackadoodle food advice the Federal Government rams down our throats. Strong scientifically, yet easy to read and assimilate, this is a great book. Strongly recommend this one.
This book has finally convinced me to go totally off carbs! For years I've struggled to maintain my weight even though I don't overeat or chow down on junk food. I've also struggled with hypoglycemia whenever I did strenuous work. Now I know all the sandwiches, bread, and crackers I was consuming is the real junk food and I understand the science behind why it was making me fat. The wonderful thing is how easy this change is to make because I don't have to restrict the amount of meat and green veggies. I can eat as much as I want and I'm already losing weight and feeling so much better!
