Gary Taubes Working On ‘Lite’ Version Of ‘Good Calories, Bad Calories’

Filed under: Health — @ January 5, 2009

Gary Taubes returns to update us on his “crazy year”

In 2008, the focus of my podcast shifted from an audio version of my blog into a regular interview-focused show featuring the top voices in the diet, health, and fitness community who are advocating healthy living–mostly from a controlled-carbohydrate perspective. I’ve been honored to be able to speak with some of the most fascinating people in this industry who are making a difference in the lives of their patients, readers, and fans. This formula has turned into the trademark of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore” now which is likely the reason why it has catapulted into the Top 20 of Nutrition and Fitness podcasts on iTunes in the latter part of last year.

A couple of months ago, I decided to give my listeners a chance to share with me who they thought were the best podcast guests of 2008 and bring them back for a BRAND NEW INTERVIEW to kick off 2009. After tabulating the results of the e-mails I received from YOU, I narrowed it down to five stellar interview guests to conduct another interview to share with you this year. That’s exactly what I’m doing this week with my special “Encore Week” featuring FIVE one-hour interviews with Gary Taubes, Dr. William Davis, Dr. James E. Carlson, Dr. Mary C. Vernon, and Dr. James LaValle sponsored by Atkins Nutritionals.

In Episode 213 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore,” we kick off “Encore Week” with Gary Taubes, the author of Good Calories, Bad Calories who did a fantastic job in my original May 2008 podcast interview with him. Since then, so much has happened with the book, including numerous speaking opportunities at places like UC-Berkeley, at Andrew Weil’s health conference, and an upcoming visit to the NIH. New projects are on the horizon for Taubes, including the much-awaited “lite” version of Good Calories, Bad Calories that so many people have been clamoring for. You can always count on Gary Taubes to be an entertaining and educational interview and he doesn’t disappoint.
