Read this excellent interview with Gary Taubes re: his new book: Good Calories, Bad Calories

Gary Taubes' new book - Good Calories, Bad Calories - is shaking up the medical community with its well thought-out arguments for the benefits of a low-carb diet. I've lost 60 lb on low-carb since June 17 and swear by it! It's a fast, healthy and effective way to lose weight. I no longer eat sugar, junk food, potatoes, pasta, etc. And yes - there is life after potatoes, pasta and junk.

I'm not diabetic, but it pains me to see diabetics continue to eat potatoes, pasta and bread with the blessing of their doctors. Moderation, shmoderation! People don't need to eat this garbage. There are indeed alternatives for these foods - alternatives that will keep your blood sugar stable. And it's not just diabetics who should seek to avoid spikes in their blood sugar levels. Everyone should do it!

Click here to read an interview with the author that will appear in tomorrow's edition of the Los Angeles Times.

(Taubes mentions at the end of the interview that he'll likely avoid pumpkin pie this Thanksgiving. He doesn't have to, though. There are many excellent low-carb pumpkin pie recipes out there. I guess even he needs some good low-carb recipe books, eh?)
