Sue Baker's view...

A major refutation of the calorie in, calorie out theory with Taubes advocating we should look at hormonal influence in the role of obesity management. This is another vote for the balanced diet and the low-carb approach to weight loss. It’s clear, easy to read and there are diet plans and recommended foods to start off the diet process.

Synopsis

Why We Get Fat and What to Do About it by Gary Taubes

Gary Taubes reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century and the good science that has been ignored, answering the most persistent questions along the way: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid?
