    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.

    Mary says: "Science, science, and more (fascinating) science."
    "What's with the "squeaks" in the audio download?"

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

    What I liked best about Good Calories, Bad Calories is the content of the book. Broadly researched, no skimping and great analysis of the material covered. I don't have to agree with everything to say that. What I liked the least about the audio book are the distracting "squeaks" that occur in the audio at irregular intervals. It seems to be a fault unique to this audio book as the two books I have downloaded since do not contain it. It is annoying enough that I would not keep purchasing audio books if this is a common problem. When Audible gets this problem rectified I will re-download this book . . . I have already downloaded it twice in different formats and the problem persists.


    What about Mike Chamberlain’s performance did you like?

    Mike Chamberlain narrates at a pace and with voicing that keeps my interest even through somewhat technical "dry" material. If you can do that, you have to be better than some of my profs were. . . but I can't be to critical of them either, as keeping a receptive audience is no small achievement.


    Could you see Good Calories, Bad Calories being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?
