Subject: [CORE-Discussion] Book recommendation
I went for my regular doctor visit and my PCP said “There’s a book I’d like you to read.” I said, “Great. What book?” He said, “It’s called. “Why We Get Fat and What To Do About It. By Gary Taubes ”. Hmmmm. I wonder if he is trying to tell me something?
I read the book and found it very informative. The author claims all problems with obesity stem from carbohydrates metabolism, Insulin, and Insulin resistance. Some thoughts from the book were particularly interesting. “We don’t get fat because we are hungry all the time. We are hungry all the time because we are fat.” The author believes other diets work solely because they promote lowering sugar and carb intake, not because they are low fat, or vegan, etc. He sites many studies to back up his claims and walks the reader through nutritional history.
I have been successful with low carb, high protein diets in the past, but I would fall off the wagon and let my sugar/carb addiction take over. I am trying again and have good results so far, just have to stick with it.
