The Low-Carb Fraud | [T. Colin Campbell]

The Low-Carb Fraud

By now, the low-carb diet's refrain is a familiar one: "Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn't matter. Carbs are the real reason you can't lose weight. In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how the low-carb proponents get it wrong: Where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as "carbs" aren't all created equal, and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

Publisher's Summary

By now, the low-carb diet's refrain is a familiar one: "Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn't matter. Carbs are the real reason you can't lose weight."

The low-carb universe Dr. Atkins brought into being continues to expand. Low-carb diets, from South Beach to The Zone and beyond, are still the go-to method for weight loss for millions. These diets' marketing may differ, but they all share two crucial components: the condemnation of "carbs" and an emphasis on meat and fat for calories. Even the latest diet trend, the Paleo diet, is - despite its increased focus on some wholefoods - just another variation on the same carbohydrate fears.

In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how the low-carb proponents get it wrong: Where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as "carbs" aren't all created equal, and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

If you're considering a low-carb diet, read this book first. It will change the way you think about what you eat - and how you should be eating to lose weight and optimize your health, now and for the long term.

    Story
    "Careful when using the word fraud . . ."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Be careful when you see the word Fraud. I am a physician, and suggest the interested reader listen to both sides of this question. This PhD author seems somewhat jealous of his peer group, and even perpetuates the myth (from the "vegetarians") that Dr. Atkins died from low-carb diet consequences. (Dr. Atkins was 6 ft., 195 lbs when he suffered from a head injury. He died bloated, with organ failure, in a coma.) This author also clings to the "cholesterol is the problem", soon to be arcane. There is valuable information here, but only if tempered with some outside information. (Fat comes from carbs, not from fat.)


    Would you ever listen to anything by T. Colin Campbell again?

    Yes


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


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

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    Every decade, we learn the new truth. I suspect we are not finished yet. iDoc

    "So true! Eye opening!"

    Eye Opening! It really works! Is all I can say. Way too many testimonials out there in the reviews to evidence that! Wake up people!

    "I guess this book really changed my mind"
    Any additional comments?

    Mostly because I was unaware of the biases I had formed in the presence of all the noise that's out there. I'm glad there are people paying attention to what the general public is perceiving and trying to correct it. I think awareness is the best outcome of the book, and not really a change in diet or opinion.
