Why We Get Fat (and Sick)...and what to do about it!

Apparently, when I read this article, I thought it was ridiculous ( I assume because it said exercise didn't reduce obesity and because he recommends against potatos).

But when I started reading the author's (Gary Taubes) book "Why We Get Fat (And What To Do About It)" I thought it was one of the most important books I've ever read.

My wife said, "You hated him when you read his RD article!"

Well, all I can say, is I wish RD had published a more extensive, explanatory article, because after reading the book (almost done anyway), I no longer find any fault with the article.

And, even though I never (and I mean never) read "Diet" books, I am so glad I read this one - AND - I recommend (would DEMAND if I could) that everyone else does also.

Save Your Life...Read This Book    "Why We Get Fat (And What To Do About It)"

Not a Reader?
Here is a 10 part video (a little over an hour) of Gary Taubes giving his lecture on this book.

Along the same lines is a great website by an actual MD - http://www.dietdoctor.com/
He also has a really good - (perhaps better than Gary Taubes) video on YouTube
