In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is Gary Taubes, an award-winning (and my all-time favorite) scienceand health journalist widely known for his investigative work on the food and diet industries.
He explains how the conventional thinking on obesity has led to 60 years of controversy, the on-going “diet wars,” and the current obesity and diabetes epidemics.
“The nutritional and academic authorities have failed us, and they and we should acknowledge that,” he says. “Had they not failed us, we would, almost by definition, never have reached this point of epidemic obesity.”
Decades of bad science within the mainstream medical community led to all sorts of bad advice from doctors on how patients should diet and manage their overall nutrition. In this episode we talk about the decades of those misconceptions:
“People do fad diets, because the conventional wisdom doesn't work,” Gary says. “You do exactly what you're told to do and all it does is keep you fat and make you hungry. You feel bad about yourself because you blame yourself for failing. Any reasonable person in that circumstance is going to look for another approach.”
So, how can we move forward on a better path? I’m so excited for you to listen and find out.
Gary’s work is some of the best at breaking everything down in order to reveal the truth. And in this case, you’ll learn from him how he found out that a low-carb/high-fat diet makes you healthier, controls blood sugar and blood pressure, diminishes chronic pain, reduces weight, and improves heart disease risk. What’s not to love?
