Is it fat or sugar that has triggered the unprecedented epidemics of obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease?

Gary Taubes, iconic low-carb science writer and author of last year’s The Case Against Sugar, thoroughly goes through the evidence in this presentation from the Low Carb USA 2017.

Watch a part of the presentation above, where he explains how we see epidemics of diabetes and obesity in any population which adopts Westernized food (transcript). The full video is available (with captions and transcript) with a free trial or membership:

    I am now 70 years of age and have struggled with being oveweight all my life. However when I was 18years old I came across an old book in my library advocating eating fat and not carbs although the terminology was slightly different it meant the same. Unfortunately following the diet was too expensive at that time as my parents weren't wealthy and meat and fish were expensive and not enough was generally understood about the philosophy behind the way of eating.
    Some years later, a famous obese singer called Sophie Tucker started to lose weight and broadcast the reason for her weigh loss as eating more fats. She was laughed at.
    The calorie has been wrongly crowned the king of weight loss and fat as the demon. But until the medical profession is educated to understand the truth obese patients will still be handed out low calorie high carbohydrate diets.
