STEM Talk 125 - Gary Taubes Addresses Common Arguments Used Against Ketogenic Diets
Today we have the second part of our interview with science and health journalist Gary Taubes. In the first part of our interview, episode 124, we talked to Gary about his new book “The Case For Keto: Rethinking Weight Control and the Science and Practice of Low-Carb/High-Fat Eating.”
In today’s episode, we talk in detail about a growing body of research and evidence that demonstrates the health benefits and safety of ketogenic diets. We also address why there remains stubborn resistance to low-carb/high fat diets in some nutrition circles. Plus, Gary responds to common arguments used against the ketogenic diet, ranging from health and safety and climate change to claims that ketogenic diets don’t work for women.
Gary turned to journalism back in the 1970s after receiving his master’s degree in aeronautical engineering from Stanford University. Today, he continues to practice journalism and is the founder and director of the Nutrition Science Initiative.
Turning Science Upside Down - with Gary Taubes
Over the last two decades, investigative science journalist Gary Taubes has repeatedly put his tenacious, meticulous research and persuasive writing skills towards debunking the bad science and prevailing dogmas in nutrition. He’s one of the most influential people in the nutrition world, and almost without equal when it comes to low carb. So it makes sense that he is our first guest on the Diet Doctor podcast.
Lose Fat and Get Healthy with These Simple Weight Loss Hacks - with Gary Taubes
In a perfect world, we can all eat exactly the same and everyone gains and loses weight the exact same way. Unfortunately, in reality you may have a friend that can kill a whole pizza, have dessert and eat extra fries without gaining an ounce of weight. Others seem to put on weight even looking at a plate of food. What’s the deal? Why is it so easy for some people to gain weight and so hard for others. Why are so many people still sold on the calories in and calories out solution to obesity and weight control? Gary Taubes is an investigative science and health journalist and bestselling author. His latest book, The Case for Keto, tackles a lot of the misinformation around calories and why some people struggle with losing weight even when calories are restricted to the point of a starvation diet. We are led to believe that overeating is the problem, but what if eating too much isn’t what’s making you fat? What if your partner's problem is really how sensitive their body is to storing fat? This interview may be the missing piece of the puzzle that will help you and the people you love make the right diet changes, today.
