    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.

    What did you like best about Good Calories, Bad Calories? What did you like least?

    Not what expected. Lots of information on history of fat, calories, cholesterol, heart disease, etc. Good dissertation, but not for someone looking for practical steps to better nutrition. Couldn't get all the way through the book.


    Has Good Calories, Bad Calories turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no

    Our world is charged with both the grandeur of God and the void of his absence. The seven deadly sins are the force causing that hole. They are at work in each of us. They decimate our relationships, our souls, and our world. These deadly sins often seem pleasing and good for gaining what we desire, but they are thoroughly poisonous. Conversely, the Beatitudes are Jesus' pictures of a restored creation.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Yes, I was looking for the relationship between sin and how we are suppose to live. Even though the seven deadly sins are not Biblical this book does give an interesting relationship.


    Do you think Seven needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, all was covered well.


    Any additional comments?

    I would recommmend.
