I loved The Case Against Sugar so much that I went out and bought Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It. Gary Taubes is a great author, and he is very authoritative on this topic. He’s got another book I may look into in the months to come as well.
Why We Get Fat provides outstanding evidence and information for any man who wants to lose weight or stay in shape.
In my opinion, it’s a must buy. Right now you can get a used one on amazon for $2.98.
Taubes has been a real inspiration for me. I’m serious. I avoid sugar and white flour carbs like I never have before. I’m still a floppy Phil in the effort department though because I experimented with “Ancient Grains” and saw the same carb jonesing that’s always haunted me.
Quitting alcohol is easy, quitting carbs…yikes that’s hard. Yes, it’s a long road but I am improving. The last 4 weeks have been great for me, but I’ve only lost 8 pounds. If I do that again in the following 4 week period I’ll really have something going. We’ll see. In the meantime I think I’m going to reread Why We Get Fat a second time. Here’s the podcast. It’s for your enjoyment brother.
