Diet Doctor Podcast #62 — Gary Taubes
Now, Taubes is back with his latest book, The Case for Keto. This book is a convincing account of his investigations, including interviews with over 100 clinicians who prescribe keto diets to their patients.
Taubes expertly describes the prevailing weight loss paradigm of “eat less move more” and counters it with scientific evidence and practical arguments that show why that approach doesn’t work for many of us.
Taubes excels at bringing the body of nutritional science together with observations from “the real world.” Through that lens, he explains why many of us need a different approach.
Have you struggled with weight loss? Have you considered a keto diet? If so, you’ll want to hear Gary Taubes help you rethink weight loss and make his case for keto.
