Gary Taubes who re-ignited the debate about carbs several years ago and literally put the Atkins Diet back on the map with his New York Times article, "What If It's All Been a Big Fat Lie," is at it again with a new article Newsweek. As usual he villifies grains and other carbohydrates and lets fat off the hook. I used to buy in to all his stuff and I suffered from it. I not only could not lose weight on a low carb diet, but I almost landed in the hospital with colon blockage (I will spare you the ugly details). Excuse me, but Mr. Taubes is literally blowing smoke you know where!
Here's a link to the article:http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2 ... iling.html
This couldn't have come at a worse time. I wouldn't put it past Taubes to have timed the article to come out at the same time Dr. McDougall's new book The Starch Solution
was published. He has been debating with plant-based doctors for years.
