Although initially a bit daunting due to the incredibly thorough review of medical literature for the past several decades, this book proves to be a wake-up call to to how we approach medicine and the scourges of today's health environment - from heart disease to diabetes to obesity. A definite must-read for anyone who wants to know how we got to where we are today in the dietary field.

This book changed my life. After 30 years of controlling my weight via exercise (lots of intense aerobics; running, cylcing, etc.) I discovered that all I needed to do was cut back on carbohydrates. This was truly a revelation. I was not very fat - only about 10 or 15 pounds overweight; now the weight is trivial to control. I am healthier and have more energy.

I also watched the Gary Taubes video series recorded by Rivendell Bicycle Works. I heartily recommend this book over Taubes "Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It" if you like all the nitty gritty details like I do. If you just want to cut to the chase - read "Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It" instead.
