The Quality of Calories: What Makes Us Fat and Why Nobody Seems to Care

In late November of this year Gary Taubes gave a number of talks to members of various departments at the University of California at Berkeley. One of these talks - The Quality of Calories: What Makes Us Fat and Why Nobody Seems to Care - was recorded and can be viewed by clicking here. You need Real Player to watch the video. If you donít have it, simply Google real player or real player mac and you will find a free download of the program.

Garyís talk expands on one of the theses in his book Good Calories, Bad Calories: the idea that obesity isnít caused by gluttony and sloth, but by excess carbohydrate intake instead. If you havenít read the book or if you have and you want the weight-loss section explained in greater depth, this video is for you. Heís a little more open than he was in the book about naming names and pointing the finger at people who for whatever reason canít see the forest for the trees. The video is long - almost two hours - but well, well worth watching.

Hey Alicia;

How's life in Singapore??

Did you get Gary's book yet, as I recall, you were waiting for it to come out in paperback.

Is shipping really 45 bucks to get a book to your front door??

Have a great day, see ya over on the PM boards.

What people don't care about is whether things are true or not.
