Science journalist, co-founder of NuSi, and New York Times bestselling author Gary Taubes is our guest today in Episode 1222 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show.”
Today's episode is Part 1 of a special three-part interview where Jimmy and bestselling author Gary Taubes from GaryTaubes.com talk about Gary's new book The Case Against Sugar, the follow up to his 2007 New York Times bestseller Good Calories, Bad Calories and his 2011 book Why We Get Fat. Listen in as Jimmy and Gary discuss the science behind sugar addiction and the role it has played in our culture's increasing prevalence of diseases such as obesity, diabetes, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease. As always, Gary asks the hard questions about our obsession with sugar and clarifies misconceptions about this food by studying what happens to societies that abandon their natural diets and adopt a more Western way of eating.
Be sure to listen tomorrow as Jimmy and Gary continue the conversation with updates from Gary about what's going on at NuSi (Nutrition Science Initiative), and Wednesday as Gary gives his analysis of nutritional health research including the Hall study that NuSI was part of.
