The Case for Keto: The Truth About Low-Carb, High-Fat Eating


While the government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight without leaving you feeling hungry, one of the biggest reasons diets fail. With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma that has brought us to a diabetic and obesity crisis. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors – and not ‘gluttony’ as is so commonly the underlying suggestion – citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten more easily than the lean among us can be helped by a low carbohydrate diet, diets discredited in the 70s and 80s as ‘fads’. This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reserve diabetes or obesity – as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily – and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.
