But I gotta do *my* part for those within my circle of influence - I am so psyched following all the excitement around Gary Taubes new book (Good Calories, Bad Calories) and more importantly many of the ideas he is challenging and advancing. Gary Taubes is a top science journalist who has spent alot of time (years) apparently studying and challenging (and writing about) various scientific ideas, studys, and conclusions that are often done in error due to one reason or another.
Now, in this new book Gary Taubes takes on the establishment (the man - yes, the man ...who is trying to keep you down) or at least the established thought advanced by the majority of nutrition experts and scientists over the past 4 decades or more. Gary's book is about 600 pages and contains a couple hundred pages (reportedly) of footnotes and references to various sources, studies, quotes, etc.
(BTW - AWESOME JOB, GARY!!!! KEEP UP THE TREMENDOUS WORK!!! KEEP YOUR CHIN UP!!!)
I have not purchased/read the book yet, but I am dying to! Up to now I have been reading and listening and watching Gary online alot lately. I am posting these links here for the benefit of my personal friends, the brethren at church, my work associates and buddies, and members of my family who might not make it to the other major low carb blogs.... but might drop in here.
