Conventional Wisdom on Diet, Weight, and DiseaseIn this groundbreaking book, the result of seven years of research in every science connected with the impact of nutrition on health, award winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong.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 Yet with and people acting on this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes Taubes argues persuasively that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates white flour, sugar, easily digested starches and sugars via their dramatic and longterm effects on insulin, the hormone that regulates fat accumulation and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number There are good calories, and bad ones.Good CaloriesThese are from foods without easily digestible carbohydrates and sugars These foods can be eaten without restraint.Meat, fish, fowl, cheese, eggs, butter, and non starchy vegetables Bad CaloriesThese are from foods that stimulate excessive insulin secretion and so make us fat and increase our risk of chronic disease all refined and easily digestible carbohydrates and sugars The key is not how much vitamins and minerals they contain, but how quickly they are digested So apple juice or even green vegetable juices are not necessarily any healthier than soda Bread and other baked goods, potatoes, yams, rice, pasta, cereal grains, corn, sugar sucrose and high fructose corn syrup , ice cream, candy, soft drinks, fruit juices, bananas and other tropical fruits, and beer Taubes traces how the common assumption that carbohydrates are fattening was abandoned in the 1960s when fat and cholesterol were blamed for heart disease and then wrongly were seen as the causes of a host of other maladies, including cancer He shows us how these unproven hypotheses were emphatically embraced by authorities in nutrition, public health, and clinical medicine, in spite of how well conceived clinical trials have consistently refuted them He also documents the dietary trials of carbohydrate restriction, which consistently show that the fewer carbohydrates we consume, the leaner we will be With precise references to the most significant existing clinical studies, he convinces us that there is no compelling scientific evidence demonstrating that saturated fat and cholesterol cause heart disease, that salt causes high blood pressure, and that fiber is a necessary part of a healthy diet Based on the evidence that does exist, he leads us to conclude that the only healthy way to lose weight and remain lean is to eat fewer carbohydrates or to change the type of the carbohydrates we do eat, and, for some of us, perhaps to eat virtually none at all.The 11 Critical Conclusions of Good Calories, Bad Calories 1 Dietary fat, whether saturated or not, does not cause heart disease 2 Carbohydrates do, because of their effect on the hormone insulin The easily digestible and refined the carbohydrates and the fructose they contain, the greater the effect on our health, weight, and well being 3 Sugars sucrose table sugar and high fructose corn syrup specifically are particularly harmful The glucose in these sugars raises insulin levels the fructose they contain overloads the liver.4 Refined carbohydrates, starches, and sugars are also the most likely dietary causes of cancer, Alzheimer s Disease, and the other common chronic diseases of modern times 5 Obesity is a disorder of excess fat accumulation, not overeating and not sedentary behavior 6 Consuming excess calories does not cause us to grow fatter any than it causes a child to grow taller 7 Exercise does not make us lose excess fat it makes us hungry 8 We get fat because of an imbalance a disequilibrium in the hormonal regulation of fat tissue and fat metabolism More fat is stored in the fat tissue than is mobilized and used for fuel We become leaner when the hormonal regulation of the fat tissue reverses this imbalance 9 Insulin is the primary regulator of fat storage When insulin levels are elevated, we stockpile calories as fat When insulin levels fall, we release fat from our fat tissue and burn it for fuel 10 By stimulating insulin secretion, carbohydrates make us fat and ultimately cause obesity By driving fat accumulation, carbohydrates also increase hunger and decrease the amount of energy we expend in metabolism and physical activity.11 The fewer carbohydrates we eat, the leaner we will be Good Calories, Bad Calories is a tour de force of scientific investigation certain to redefine the ongoing debate about the foods we eat and their effects on our health.From
