By Gary Taubes. Softcover, 640 pages!
I believe this book is so important that I’m giving it away at cost! I don’t want to make any money on this book if it means that someone might not order it. You might think it’s strange that we’ve chosen to add this book, to our pretty much exclusively Celtic product line. Why? Because I (Joseph) thought that the book was so profound, that I had to share it with you. You could go so far as to say I’ve become a “Good Calories, Bad Calories” evangelist! This is the lowest price you’re going to find anywhere, because I believe everyone should read it. Please take advantage of this low price and buy copies to give away to friends and family!
Brilliant and enlightening. . . . Taubes is a relentless researcher. – The Washington Post
Easily the most important book on diet and health to be published in the past one hundred years. It is clear, fast-paced and exciting to read, rigorous, authoritative, and a beacon of hope for all those who struggle with problems of weight regulation and general health. – Richard Rhodes (American journalist, historian, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author)
If you really like to dig deep into a topic, and learn everything there is to learn – if you enjoy reading non-fiction – if you are interested in science & nutrition – if you want to learn how to prevent cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and obesity – you must read this book!
For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number.
In this groundbreaking book, award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.
A vitally important book, destined to change the way we think about food. – Michael Pollan, author of In Defense of Food
Gary Taubes is a brave and bold science journalist who does not accept conventional wisdom. – The New York Times
A very important book. – Dr. Andrew Weil
A watershed. . . . Lucid and lively. . . . It could literally change the way you eat, the way you look and how long you live. – Minneapolis Star Tribune
Taubes tackles the subject with the seriousness and scientific insight it deserves, building a devastating case against the low-fat, high-carb way of life endorsed by so many nutrition experts in recent years. – Barbara Ehrenreich (widely-read and award-winning columnist, essayist, and author)
