This was a great read!
FULL of information and I'd probably need to reread it to understand it all.
Luckily Taubes repeats his research and references it often enough to where I was able to follow along.
However, once again I am confused on what to eat.
Taubes main message boils down to a no starch, no sugar diet. This also includes some fruits (bananas) and veggies (potatoes). It also requires eliminating grains and beans.
But is heavy on eating meat.
His basis is that humanity relied on meat and didn't have all the cancer, heart, and obesity issues we are seeing in today's population.
After reading this, I ate more meat and tried to eliminate starches.
I tried a week.
I'm sure I could have gone longer.
But the following week I ate more green, grains, and fruits and felt so much healthier.
That is what works for me.
I can cut out sugar, but dark chocolate will still be my go to sweet.
My purpose for reading all these books is to have knowledge to share and to figure out how I can keep my family healthy.
Please feel free to ask me any questions. Where I may not be a nutritionist (yet), I love to learn and share what I have learned.
Guess thats the teacher in me. :)
I gave this book a 4 out of 5 hearts.
A great read, and necessary, but a little over informational.
Not a bad thing, but I like books with more application than information, I suppose.
Are you a meat eater? Not a fan of veggies?
