Good Calories Bad Calories

Dr Kokayi has an opportunity to interview the award winning science writer Gary Taubes. This is a truly compelling interview highlighting Mr Taubes’ very well referenced Good Calories Bad Calories. Mr Taubes has provided excellent documentation for the way that obesity has been dealt with throughout the last one hundred years in the Western world, starting with the emphasis on CHO to the latest craze around low fat diets. The myths and lack of real scientific documentation around the low fat approach to weight loss is highlighted and Mr Taubes shows the link between sugar, obesity, cardiovascular disease, diabetes and cancer.
