In Episode 439 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we bring to you Part 2 of my interview with New York Times bestselling author Gary Taubes! You already know him from his instant classic Good Calories Good Calories and he has grown quite the reputation for being the go-to guy regarding nutritional research over the past few years. That notoriety is sure to increase in 2011 with his new consumer-friendly book Why We Get Fat And What To Do About It. Written in an easy-to-read format (unlike GCBC), this book is already rockin’ the bestseller lists and shows no sign of slowing down with Gary making media appearances galore! After addressing and responding to his critics in Part 1, today he answers the burning questions my listeners had for him.
Listen to Gary Taubes discuss why people who eat a low-carb diet tend to eat less calories naturally, why some of the explanations about why low-carb diets work are so dead wrong, how your own stored body fat become calories used by your body for fuel when you reduce your caloric intake naturally eating low-carb, the intriguing story of Hilda Bruch featured in the introduction to Why We Get Fat, the toxic food environment that existed in the 1930s, 1960s, 1980s and today that is not related to the usual suspects like fast food, video games, and computers, why the calories theory makes it easy to ignore the real underlying reasons behind why we get fat, an update on the HFCS/sugar project he was working on with Dr. Robert Lustig and when it is expected to hit the market, whether he has learned anything new about alpha glycerol phosphate since my last interview with him in September 2010, why men in poor countries who eat lots of carbs tend to be thinner than the women who tend to do more of the work, why he puts the emphasis more on insulin than leptin, what he thinks about interval and resistance training for weight loss, whether there are any good new low-carb studies coming from the research community, his idea for keeping the cost of a large-scale low-carb study that could be conducted over the Internet, what he thinks about alternative theories about what causes metabolic syndrome (wheat, linoleic acid, etc.), what he thinks about the Kitavans doing so well with their health despite consuming a high-carb diet, what he thinks about the starch/wheat vs. fructose debate, what he thinks about the seemingly paradoxical views of Ron Krauss and Walter Willett, and what he thinks about the “set point” theory which prevents people from being able to attain their normal weight and whether it’s healthy to weigh a little bit above normal weight. It’s always a fantastic conversation when I get to speak with Gary Taubes and I’m grateful for his willingness to give me an outstanding 100-minute interview!
