Last week I shared with you information about the New York Times bestselling author of Good Calories Bad Calories Gary Taubes appearing on the popular syndicated daytime television program Dr. Oz Show coming up on March 7, 2011. The taping of the show itself took place last Wednesday and Gary told me that he thought he did pretty well grading himself a B+ for his efforts in communicating the message.
However, he did admit there were some rather “interesting” questions asked by Dr. Oz which we’ll have to wait and see whether they make it in the final cut of the show next Monday–but I firmly believe ANY publicity for the concepts shared in Taubes’ new book Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It is GOOD publicity! The fact remains The Dr. Oz Show is the top-rated syndicated health program in America and millions of people will be exposed to the message of livin’ la vida low-carb like never before. It’s gonna be a good day for healthy low-carb living when that interview airs next week.
But we may have an encouraging precursor to how the television interview will go based on how Gary Taubes was treated by Dr. Mehmet Oz on The Dr. Oz Show on Oprah Radio last Thursday. Taubes noted this interview took place by telephone a couple of weeks before it aired on February 24, 2011. You’ll notice how complimentary Dr. Oz is of Gary’s work and agreeing with him on key issues such as insulin being the root problem with obesity and chronic disease. Regardless of what you think about Dr. Oz based on his previous statements, you can’t help but be encouraged by what he says in this interview. Listen in and decide for yourself whether you think he’s truly changing his tune or if he’s merely playing to his guest:
Sounds impressive, right? But do you buy it that Dr. Oz has this sudden realization that carbohydrates are the real culprit in the weight gain and health decline of Americans?

And be sure to tune your DVR to your local listing on Monday, March 7, 2011 to watch Gary Taubes make a major national television appearance on The Dr. Oz Show to share about what’s in his latest book Why We Get Fat.
