    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 did you love best about Good Calories, Bad Calories?

    Extremely well researched book. It took 5 years to write and it shows. Debunks the diet myths. Killer focus on carbs and insulin as the culprit. Backup with historical and demographic and anthropological data.
    The science of fat metabolism is clarified. the compilation of sugar as the culprit is extensive. Long precise and detailed. A must read for anyone who plans to eat for the foreseeable future.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Good Calories, Bad Calories?

    Lab data about mice is particularly telling. Studies of other societies who contact the Western diet disease. MUSt read!


    Have you listened to any of Mike Chamberlain’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Most of it was great.

    A nutritional whodunit that takes readers from Greenland to Africa to Israel, The Queen of Fats gives a fascinating account of how we have become deficient in a nutrient that is essential for good health: the fatty acids know as omega-3s.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Queen of Fats to be better than the print version?

    Fascinating explanation of omega 3s, make you understand why they work, almost a historiclal who done it about the discovery of fat metabolism against the resistence of the cholesterol lobby. Read this book and you will take high dose fish oil and know why....it will prolonge disease free life.

  • Wheat Belly: Lose the Wheat, Lose the Weight, and Find Your Path Back to Health

    Since the introduction of dietary guidelines calling for reduced fat intake in the 1970s, a strange phenomenon has occurred: Americans have steadily, inexorably become heavier, less healthy, and more prone to diabetes than ever before. After putting more than two thousand of his at-risk patients on a wheat-free regimen and seeing extraordinary results, cardiologist William Davis has come to the disturbing conclusion that it is not fat, not sugar, not our sedentary lifestyle that is causing America’s obesity epidemic—it is wheat.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "Raw vegetables, eggs, meat and cheese"
    "Milwaukee Cardiologist nails theculprit in FAT"

    What made the experience of listening to Wheat Belly the most enjoyable?

    Wheat is genetically engineered crap. You won't look at it as food again. Its a synthetic substance with some exomorphine like properties. The whole food establishment has us hooked.
    He speaks from experience. A must read for anyone who thinks he or she will be eating again.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Weiner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
