Diet Dr all love, Gary Taubes

(From Dr Mercola’s video library,   a most valuable if not very different bunch of ideas.   Gary is a brilliant Science Journalist of major repute.  His delivery style is highly unusual to say the least.    Paleo crowd will love it. . . . McDougall fans might have a harder time, but all should  try to understand his brilliant scientific concepts  because Gary is devoted to the concept of truth, without bias.  And that is a rarity.    Jan)

The Diet Doctor Everybody Loves – Gary Taubes

The Diet Doctor Everybody Loves — Gary Taubes   Gary Taubes Discusses Weight Gain
Scientific journalist Gary Taubes gives “unconventional” weight loss advice that may offer the missing link to shedding fat you’ve been searching for.

Story at-a-glance

  • The idea that weight gain is simply a matter of “calories in” versus “calories out” is just plain wrong… the real weight-gain culprit is carbs in your diet.
  • Overeating carbohydrate-rich foods can prevent a higher percentage of fats from being used for energy, and lead to an increase in fat-driven weight gain. It also raises your insulin levels, which can cause insulin resistance, followed by diabetes and a host of other chronic diseases.
  • When you eat large amounts of sugar, fructose, bread, pasta, and any other grain products, you’re essentially sending a hormonal message, via insulin, to your body that says both “keep eating” and “store more fat.”
  • When you cut carbs from sugar, fructose and grains, you need to replace those calories with healthy fats such as those from raw nuts, grass-fed butter and meats, coconut oil, egg and avocados.
