56 Why We Get Fat – Author Gary Taubes



Why We Get Fat, with National Bestselling author, Gary Taubes

Gary Taubes’ groundbreaking book “Good Calories, Bad Calories,” is stimulating and challenging , yet requires substantial time and attention to fully grasp.  Hence, in 2010 Mr. Taubes  wrote national bestseller, “Why We Get Fat” highlighting the key points of his first book and making it accessible to everyone.
In this episode, Adam and Mike and guest host, InForm Fitness instructor, Neil Holland, interview Taubes to reveal his simple message: The widespread theory of caloric intake exceeding expenditure leading to obesity is flawed, and instead, our focus needs to be on the amount of carbohydrates consumed.
Adam asks the million-dollar question, “Can we live without carbohydrates?” and relative to that, Taubes’ verdict on fruit. Unparalleled in his impact on the field of nutrition and physiology, Taubes’ accolades are too many to list, including degrees from Harvard, Stanford and Columbia. Many fans of his work, including “The Case Against Sugar,” will appreciate how the information presented herein is sound and entertaining, with the unexpected bonus being a sneak-peak into Taubes’ upcoming book!
