The Case for Keto is the second book I read by Gary Taubes and I plan to read whatever he writes from now on. The first book I read was The Case Against Sugar and it blew my mind. This book, on the other hand, will become the only book when someone asks me about my diet. It is highly informative and easy to read.
The Case for Keto explains the health effects of diet in much detail and with many examples. The diet in hand is the ketogenic diet. It is a low carbohydrate high-fat diet and it works like magic. I should know better because I have lost 66 pounds with it and I’ve never felt better.
If you want to take control of your health, you must read as much as you can about the topic. Also, it would be best if you tried eating differently. Carbs are everywhere, and many of the people are telling us to eat carbs. But what if we stop eating it and see the results? That is what I did, and that was the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. And I have to thank the many doctors and amazing journalists like Gary Taubes. Without them, it would be easy to be afraid of anything.
I’d recommend this book if you have any questions about the ketogenic diet and don’t know where to start. Enjoy!
The Case for Keto
While government and nutritional agencies still spout the failed mantra of calorie reduction, doctors treating diabetes and obesity are experiencing extraordinary results among patients cutting out carbs; a diet which has the essential benefit of allowing you to lose weight without ever feeling hungry.
With forensic journalistic rigour and in compelling prose, world authority Gary Taubes analyses the bad science behind our nutritional dogma. He shows that weight gain is driven by genetic, hormonal factors – and not overeating or ‘gluttony’ as is commonly the underlying suggestion – citing compelling evidence that people with the propensity to fatten easily can be helped best by a low carbohydrate high-fat diet.
This groundbreaking read offers hope to anyone wishing to prevent or reverse diabetes or obesity – as well as anyone wanting to eat more healthily – and will fundamentally change our habits around food forever.
Gary Taubes is an American journalist, writer and low-carbohydrate diet advocate. He is the author of Nobel Dreams, Bad Science: The Short Life and Weird Times of Cold Fusion. And Good Calories, Bad Calories, titled The Diet Delusion in the UK and Australia.
