A great discussion of what types of food makes our bodies work as they were meant to and what things hurt our bodies which also make the waist grow. It is not the calorie count, not calories in / calories out, and not the sedentary life style that makes us unhealthy. It is the type of calories. Refined carbohydrate such as sugar create an insulin response that is harmful to the body. Insulin is what makes fat cells store fat and keep it. Avoiding carbohydrates allows the body to use the fat in the fat cells. The insulin response causes our cells to adapt and resist insulin, creating a vicious cycle, which after time causes a host of health problems.
This book is a short version of Taubes previous book Good Calories, Bad Calories. This book leaves out a lot of research presented in the prior book. Some of the research left out helped explain some health reasoning.
