GQ: Gary Taubes, the Man Who Knows Why America Is Fat

Once you’re insulin resistant — metabolically disturbed, as the paleo/LCHF folks like to say — you’re secreting more insulin to handle the carbohydrates you’re consuming, and you’re gaining fat, heading toward becoming diabetic. The question then is what do you have to do to solve that problem. For most people, just removing the sugar is not enough. You need to remove all the easily digestible carbs, which means pretty much all those except the carbs in green vegetables.

    "Even though Gary Taubes is heralded by his fans as a crusader against Big Sugar, the truth is, the way he personally eats isn't that different from any 60-year-old father of two." says the writer of the article.

    And then reports Taub's typical daily meals of eggs and bacon for breakfast, fish and salad for lunch, meat and vegetables for dinner and the occasional bit of pumpernickel bread (cause it's low GI and Taub knows that he can eat it without gaining weight with his metabolic system). I obviously know very different 60 year old fathers of two!!!

    It is so frustrating how the key messages of the piece are undermined by a crappy introduction!!

    What a silly comment! Surely there are more important things to get frustrated about?
