NuSI, Kevin Hall and the energy balance hypothesis – Q&A with Gary Taubes

4,066 views Add as favorite
Why do we get fat – and what can we do about it? Conventional wisdom tells us that it’s all about eating less and running more. The problem is that this seldom works well.

Science journalist Gary Taubes has spent more than a decade on finding a better answer. His book Good Calories, Bad Calories (2007) became very influential and changed many people’s view on this. He’s now out with a new book called The Case Against Sugar. Here he answers questions related to obesity, sugar and low-carb diets.

In the highlight above Taubes talks about the highly controversial “Kevin Hall study“. A study that was funded by the non-profit NuSI, an organization that Taubes co-founded (transcript).
