From the Publisher
Building upon his critical work in Good Calories, Bad
Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Gary
Taubes revisits the urgent question of what's making us fat-and how
we can change.
He reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century-none
more damaging or misguided than the "calories-in, calories-out"
model of why we get fat-and the good science that has been ignored.
He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people
thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in
our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we
avoid? Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get
Fat is an essential guide to nutrition and weight
