For decades we have been taught that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more, but award-winning science writer Gary Taubes argues that the problem lies in the kind of calories we take in, not the number.
From the Publisher:
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 Taubesshows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.
In this provocative report, science writer Gary Taubes shakes up the health and diet community, which, he says, promotes a totally incorrect view of why Americans are overweight. According to Taubes, the "eat less and exercise" approach is a seriously flawed prescription that has failed Americans for too long. He reexamines the ways that calories, fats, and carbohydrates affect the body, and he makes a critical distinction between what he calls "good" calories (those without carbs and sugars) and "bad" carbohydrates (which contain carbohydrates and sugar and which stimulate the body's insulin levels, leading to an increase in fat.) Exercise, he says, just makes us more hungry. Taubes also criticizes the way research is, in his view, misused by the health community (as well as by journalists). GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES is a bold step taken by a writer who has stopped to ask fundamental questions about food, health, and disease.
