Summary
This work is an examination of what makes us fat. 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. 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. He also discusses the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulin's regulation of our fat tissue and 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
