Shermer and Gary Taubes Discuss Ketogenic Diets

In 2020, 69 percent of adult Americans are obese or overweight. Two-thirds.

Is it possible that the dietary and nutrition advice we have been given needs revising? That is the conclusion of the renowned science journalist Gary Taubes. The Case for Keto puts the ketogenic diet movement in the historical and scientific perspective. Taubes reveals why the established rules about eating healthy might be the wrong approach to weight loss for millions of people, and how ketogenic (low-carbohydrate/high-fat) diets can help so many of us achieve and maintain a healthy weight for life.
