This is a really great book that everyone should read. The information is priceless. Sugar and the industry around it is truly evil and I wish more people knew. The only reason I didn’t give the book 5 stars is because he jumped around in time so much it was frustrating. I understand you can’t necessarily get this type of message across by speaking perfectly chronologically but holy wow did he skip around. It was a bit tough to follow but ultimately got the point across.

Excellent science history and a great indictment of the medical science community. I highly recommend this book to people who struggle with weight regimes.

This, the third of Gary Taubes' books I have read, makes me question yet again the quality of advice I have been getting on my health for most of my life. That I am overweight cannot be doubted. That I am borderline diabetic also, and now I can monitor it myself by going online and viewing the results of my annual blood and urine tests. What to do about these is another matter altogether. I exercise, I abstain from surgery drinks, I usually abstain from alcohol, and I don't smoke. I have learned that extended periods sitting in front of the television and watching sporting events subjects my little brain to 10 or 12 commercials every eight minutes mostly about the joys of eating more and more and more. The obese do not get so just from eating too many fats any more than I can reduce water retention by lowering my salt intake. How ill we become from modern "Western" illnesses may have as much to do with our sugar intake and our proximity to industrial waste. Maybe even more so. So I will take Taubes advice -- just as I take Michael Pollan's advice -- with a grain of salt until more scientific evidence comes along: eat less, mostly vegetables and avoid the ice cream.… (mer)

Fantastic read. Busts many myths related to fat and obesity. Kind of academic text at many places but it is definitely an interesting read. Equips you with basic knowledge and biology behind obesity.
