For years, health organizations have preached the same rules for losing weight: restrict your calories, eat less, exercise more. So why doesn’t it work for everyone? Health journalist Gary Taubes joins us to set the record straight, clarifying a century of misunderstanding about the differences between diet, weight control, and health. He presents findings from his book The Case for Keto: Rethinking Weight Control and the Science and Practice of Low-Carb/High-Fat Eating (Knopf), giving us a revolutionary manifesto for the twenty-first-century fight against obesity and diabetes.
Gary Taubes, an award-winning science and health journalist, is cofounder and director of the Nutrition Science Initiative. He is the author of The Case Against Sugar, Why We Get Fat, and Good Calories, Bad Calories, and a former staff writer for Discover and correspondent for Science.
