Video: Gary Taubes Obesity Lecture At Stevens Institute
Filed under: Health — @ February 16, 2008
It’s been a little while since I’ve updated you on the latest Gary Taubes news and that’s because there hasn’t really been anything of significance to report. But after Taubes presented a rather comprehensive talk about the concepts and hypotheses he shares in his bestselling Good Calories, Bad Calories book while lecturing at the Hoboken, New Jersey-based Stevens Institute of Technology on Wednesday, February 6, 2008, I decided to bring it to you today.
There is a video of a lecture called “Big Fat Lies” presented by Gary Taubes who is at his best passionately expressing the very principles that we believe in so strongly as believers in the low-carb lifestyle. He sets up the history of how we got fat, discusses why the solutions that have been provided to the overweight and obese have been decided ineffective, gives evidence why fat is healthy and the heart disease hypothesis is just plain wrong, and why carbohydrate in your diet raises blood sugar as well as releases insulin which causes damage to both weight and health.
If you want to better understand the purpose of diet in health, then I highly encourage you to make a 72-minute investment to watch this lecture with Gary Taubes from start to finish. It’s a little technical at times, but Taubes has done his homework and knows what he’s talking about. You’ll be more informed about diet, weight loss, and health than about 99% of the population today, so view every bit of it if you can.
