As a follow up to my most recent post...

I explained some of the "why" of why low-carb appears to be more effective for weight loss than other weight loss programs.

If you'd like to hear someone else explain it who has reviewed a great deal of research and wrote a wonderful book on the subject of diet and health which covers the subject in extraordinary depth without trying to sell you anything then check out this article on Mother Earth, a periodical all about living better.

Also feel free to check out these articles that Gary has written. The beautiful part about his writing is that he is interested in truth and challenging bad science, not selling diet foods, getting you to follow his diet, or treating patients.

What if It's All Been a Big Fat Lie?

Does Exercise Really Make Us Thinner?

I've read both of these articles and I enjoyed them both. There's more to the story than obesity. Gary also covers the science of heart disease, cancer, dementia, and other chronic illnesses in Good Calories, Bad Calories. I highly recommend reading it, but realize that it is lengthy and in depth. To quote Gary, "it is written for the intelligent layperson". If you don't find yourself interested enough to read it yet, please feel free to email me or post a comment if there is a particular health concern that you're interested in.


PS. Don't fear the fat!
