Big Fat Lies
If you were expecting an entry about Hoboken city government, you’re out of luck.
This very interesting post is about a recent lecture held at Stevens Institute on February 6, 2008. Since most of you are off on this rainy day, take the hour to watch the video!
Taubes strongly explains his principles about the importance of a low-carb lifestyle. He goes into the history of how we became fat, and exactly why most current “diets” you see littering the shelves of your local bookstore are worthless.
The lecture is a bit technical at times, but it is very informative. He cites many historical references and shows how the obesity trend has worsened.
Now I’ve always been a firm believer in “burning more than you consume” as the rule of thumb for weight loss (whether I can put my words into action is another story.) However, his presentation and theories really made me think that there’s more to this than meets the eye. Maybe all the bread I love to consume isn’t such a great idea…
Grab a beverage, watch the video and share your thoughts!
For me, following a regimented Atkins Diet is too much to handle, but I’m certainly going to find lower carbohydrate food alternatives in the future.
