FROM GARY TAUBES, a response to that New York Times piece on obesity and weight loss that I linked the other day. “In the past decade, clinical trials have repeatedly demonstrated that when obese and overweight individuals consciously restrict the carbohydrates they eat, but not calories, they not only lose weight, on average, but their heart disease and diabetes risk factors improve significantly. Their insulin resistance, in effect, resolves. Those of us who have lost weight ourselves and witnessed the effect of these diets on our patients can confirm that this is exactly what happens.”
And note how the government has caused America’s obesity problem. Plus, a roundup of dietary advice. Plus, the truth is out there.
