Annotation

A revelatory expose of the bad science behind conventional weight loss advice, arguing for low-carb high-fat diets, from the bestselling author of The Case Against Sugar.

Publisher Description

While government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight without ever feeling hungry.

With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, world authority Gary Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors - and not overeating or 'gluttony' as is commonly the underlying suggestion - citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten easily can be helped best by a low carbohydrate high fat diet.

This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reverse diabetes or obesity - as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily - and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.

Product Reviews

08 Feb, 2021
Gary Taubes adds yet another of his clearly argued scientific contributions to what should no longer be a controversy in what is today an obesity metabolic disease pandemic that followed the imposition of the US dietary guidelines in the late 70's. Making a nonsense of the "calories in calories out" theory of obesity and showing how US obsession with saturated fat as the cause of heart disease and obesity has paradoxically radically increased this trend. By allowing the reader to understand the role of carbohydrate in the process of insulin resistance and its subsequent cause of "diabesity" and metabolic disease, Taubes, meticulously, through well referenced studies and conversations with the leading experts in the field makes makes an unassailable case for the Low Carb High Fat (LCHF)/Keto approach to metabolic health. Should be required reading for all who give advice on nutrition related matters and to all of us who have spent a lifetime wondering why eating less and exercising more made little lasting impact on our weight or health.
