This work is an examination of what makes us fat. In his book Good Calories, Bad Calories, the author, an acclaimed science writer argues that certain kinds of carbohydrates, not fats and not simply excess calories, have led to our current obesity epidemic. Now he brings that message to a wider, nonscientific audience. With fresh evidence for his claim, this book makes his critical argument newly accessible. He reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century, none more damaging than the "calories-in, calories-out" model of why we get fat, the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulin's regulation of our fat tissue. He also answers key questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat or avoid? Concluding with an easy-to-follow diet, this book is one key to understanding an international epidemic and a guide to improving our own health.… (mer)

    The Big Fat Surprise: Why Butter, Meat and Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet av Nina Teicholz (melmore)
    melmore: Both books explore the same thesis, that mainstream dietary science has been hijacked by researchers with an agenda (low-fat, high-carb diets), and the results have been disastrous for Western society. Both works are painstakingly researched and show in great detail the ways in which scientific consensus can develop despite, rather than because of, empirical research.… (mer)

If you are mindful of what you're eating and in what portions, exercising and still struggling with weight creep, this book might be for you. Very accessible argument for conscious decoupling from carbs. Debunks common medical 'wisdom' about the ability of many people to maintain a healthy weight over time through diet and exercise alone. While the author does provide evidence for his premise and much of it has the general ring of truth, supporting studies do seem cherrypicked without much attempt to introduce, much less refute, any counter evidence.

Though the author does provide general eating guidance of what to eat and what not to eat (spoiler: cut way back on carbs), this book is more of argument why a diet makeover may make sense and less a how-to nutritional guide. It also presumes that everyone who wants to go carb-free can do so and for several reasons, the reality of that is way more nuanced and complicated.

Overall, an easily digested and a valuable perspective. I've not read anything else by this author, but thanks to another reviewer may eventually pick up Good Calories, Bad Calories for a skim. ( )

So, Good Calories, Bad Calories is my favorite book. It has certainly changed my life and possibly saved it. And this book is supposed to be the shorter and simpler version of it.

I'm not sure the summarization has done the book much good. Pretty much all of the argument is there, but the tone is more polemic and less factual, and for me that makes it less convincing. For instance, when he talks about the idea that fat is more fattening because it is more energy dense, he does say that this idea is incredibly simplistic, but he does not mention the experiments that refute it.

On the other hand, the part of the book that covers what diet to follow once you are convinced there is something wrong with carbohydrates is expanded and improved compared to Good Calories. He is very precise about the comparative benefits of different diets, and also about where we just don't know yet what would be preferable.

Some of the other reviews seem to think this is a diet book. It is not. It is a book that investigates why most diets don't work, why some do, and what you should look for in a diet if your first concern is your health, not your weight.

In short, if you can handle Good Calories, Bad Calories, I would definitely recommend that one over this book. But if you find it too long or too difficult, by all means read this book. ( )

Damn. Another diet that only works it you quit eating candy. ( )

The best and most science based information I have ever read on why we (I) are fat and what we can do about it. ( )

Mr. Taubes proceeds to stand the received wisdom about diet and exercise on its head in a particularly intriguing and readable synthesis.
