Summary: "Gary Taubes'sGood Calories, Bad Caloriesis easily the most important book on diet and health to be published in the past one hundred years. It is clear, fast-paced and exciting to read, rigorous, authoritative, and a beacon of hope for all those who struggle with problems of weight regulation and general health--as who does not? If Taubes were a scientist rather than a gifted, resourceful science journalist, he would deserve and receive the Nobel Prize in Medicine." -Richard Rhodes, winner of the Pulitzer Prize "If Taubes were inclined to sensationalism, he might have titled this book 'The Great Low-Fat Diet Hoax.' Instead, he tackles the subject with the seriousness and scientific insight it deserves, building a devastating case against the low-fat, high-carb way of life endorsed by so many nutrition experts in recent years. With diabetes and heart disease at stake as well as obesity, those 'experts' owe us an abject apology." -Barbara Ehrenreich "Good Calories, Bad Caloriesis a remarkable accomplishment. From a mountain of diverse scientific evidence Gary Taubes has drawn an amazingly detailed and compelling picture of how diet, obesity, and heart disease link togetherand how some of the world's most important medical researchers got the story colossally wrong. Taubes proves, I think beyond doubt, that the dietary advice we've been given for the last three decades by the federal government and the major medical bodies rests on, shall we say, a slender empirical base." Charles C. Mann, author of1491 "A brave and bold science journalist . . . Taubes does not bow to the current fashion for narrative nonfiction, instead building his argument case by case . . . much of what Taubes relates will be eye-opening." -The New York Times Book Review "A watershed . . . Deeply researched and profoundly unsettling, the book proposes a seismic paradigm shift that could well undo our perceptions about the relationship between food and health. It could also literally change the way you eat, the way you look and how long you live . . . an unwavering challenge to conventional thinking . . . Taubes' most elegant and surprising arguments examine long-held assumptions . . . lucid and lively." -Star Tribune "Fascinating . . . Mr. Taubes has a gift for turning complex scientific principles into engaging narrative." -The Wall Street Journal "A watershed . . . Deeply researched and profoundly unsettling, the book proposes a seismic paradigm shift that could well undo our perceptions about the relationship between food and health. It could also literally change the way you eat, the way you look and how long you live . . . an unwavering challenge to conventional thinking . . .

Mr. Taubes has a gift for turning complex scientific principles into engaging narrative." -The Wall Street Journal "Bound to stir renewed debate . . ." -Miami Herald "His major conclusions are startling yet surprisingly convincing . . . his writing reflects his passion for scientific truth . . . offers plenty of food for thought." -Chicago Sun-Times "I think this is a very important book. I've been recommending it to my medical colleagues and students. There are some very big ideas in this book.[Gary Taubes] has done a meticulous job of showing that many of the assumptions that are held by the conventional medical community simply rest on nothin

Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, And The Controversial Science Of Diet And Health - new book

ISBN: 9781400033461

ID: 978140003346

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. Called “a very important book,” by Andrew Weil and …” destined to change the way we think about food,” by Michael Pollan,  this groundbreaking book by award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. Don''t miss Gary Taubes''s latest book, The Case Against Sugar, available now.   Gary Taubes, Books, Health and Well Being, Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, And The Controversial Science Of Diet And Health Books>Health and Well Being, Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group
