After reading the Prologue to “Good Calories, Bad Calories”, I am interested to read the rest of the book. Nutrition is something I am very interested in and I like to hear other people’s perspectives on what is healthy. I like that Taubes uses science and case studies to back up his ideas because there are so many different opinions out there for what constitutes a healthy diet. However In my nutrition class we learned that a low fat diet that balances all of the food groups is healthy. Also that the best way to lose weight is to eat less and exercise more. This is completely different from Taubes’ argument that exercise and a low fat diet are not necessarily the keys to weight loss. His argument makes sense because he says that eating less fat just causes people to eat more of other things such as sugars and starches to satisfy their cravings. It is healthier to maintain ones weight to prevent diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. I am interested to see more of the evidence that he gives to prove that it does not matter how much you eat, but what you eat that will make you unhealthy or fat. It is hard to believe that this is true. I would think that eating excess calories of just about anything other than vegetables would make you fat.
