Wrapping your head around the keto diet can be confusing. But lucky for us, Gary Taubes has written a book to simplify the diet and break it down to its fundamental idea: carbohydrates are fattening.
Gary Taubes is an investigative science and health journalist and co-founder of the non-profit Nutrition Science Initiative, and the author of many diet books including The Case Against Sugar, Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It, and his latest, The Case For Keto.
The Case For Keto puts the ketogenic diet movement in the necessary historical and scientific perspective. It makes clear the vital misconceptions in how we've come to think about obesity and diet and uses the collected clinical experience of the medical community to provide essential practical advice, including why eating ketogenic can work for children and detailed steps for how to abstain from starches, grains, and sugars and to keep it up for life.
