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. In this groundbreaking book, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.



“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." (Richard Rhodes, Pulitzer Prize–winning author)

Important content presented too extensively

Clear and very good speaker which is needed for the complex, branching and scientific content. One must really take their time. I skipped sometimes. Still trying to finish.
Be prepared - it is a scientific, academically structured piece, and predominantly informative than entertaining as the cover might suggest.
For the message to be received by the many concerned, there should be a more direct and simpler version
