Taubes vs. Oz

Posted on Updated on

A couple weeks ago author Gary Taubes went on the Dr. Oz show to debate proper diet.  Before I go any further, you need to read Taubes “Good Calories, Bad Calories”.  It’s a great book (I’m only about 100 pages into it and it’s excellent) on why the whole diet-heart hypothesis is crap and why cholesterol doesn’t really mean jack.

Basically the Oz show tried to make Taubes look like a hack.  I won’t go into a ton of detail because I have a link to the actual show and then Tuabes response on the Livin La Vida Low Carb Man show.  Taubes was also on Oz’s radio show several months prior to the taping of the Dr. Oz TV show and it was a much better interview.

    I’ve been doing the 4hbd for 3 weeks, eat as much as I want beef pork chicken fish eggs legumes and green vegetables. Binge one day a week and have lost 10 pounds dropped almost 2% body fat and have had more energy and seen better gains in strength and work capacity then ever before. What Taubes is saying is sound proven science while everything we’ve been taught about calories in calories out is wrong. Great Subject Trey
