Conventional weight-loss advice is failing millions of people. In this ground-breaking audiobook, the bestselling author of The Case Against Sugar exposes the bad science behind it and explains how a low-carb, high-fat diet could hold the key to losing weight - for good. Eat less..., lose more: a mantra few of us would disagree with, and one we've heard countless times in official health advice. And yet doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients by taking a different approach - not by counting calories, but by eating a low-carb, high-fat diet. Setting out the case for this 'ketogenic' approach to eating, Gary Taubes analyses the bad science behind the nutritional dogma that has brought us to a diabetes and obesity crisis. He shows how the fat shaming so prevalent in our society is a result of scientists mistakenly believing that we get fat because we consume more energy than we expend; that those who fatten easily have no willpower. In reality, he argues, we fatten due to our hormonal makeup and lowering insulin levels is the only way to lose weight without crippling hunger. Full of eureka moments, this explosive audiobook offers hope for anyone wishing to prevent or reverse diabetes or obesity, and makes the merits of a ketogenic lifestyle impossible to ignore.
