Why you should read Good Calories, Bad Calories

I figured Kurt Harris was exaggerating when he referred to the book as "The Bible" on the "Livin' the Vida Low-Carb" show with Jimmy Moore. After reading the book, however, I think that may actually be an understatement.

My analysis is just buy it. If you want to understand why we live in a society that is so hell-bent against giving us the nutritional advice that tells us to eat in a way that probably causes type 2 diabetes, obesity, most cancers, Alzheimer's disease, coronary heart disease, arteriosclerosis, and all of the rest of the "diseases of civilization," despite the science (and why the definitive science fails to get funded in the first place), read this book.

If you are unsure of whether your high-saturated fat diet will cause you all the problems the mainstream media tells us it will (see above), if you're even remotely afraid to replace all the carbohydrates in your diet with natural animal-sourced fats, read this book.

If you want to see what good scientific investigative reporting and analysis look like, read this book.

That's basically it. I have linked to this great outline/summary before, but there's no substitute for really looking at the info Taubes presents.
