Why We Get Fat

    I just finished reading "Why We Get Fat" by Gary Taubes. Amazing book, very well researched.

    Although Taubes says it's not really a diet book, of course I am trying to follow his suggestions. I can't comment yet on if the suggestions actually work in my case, since I am just starting to follow them.

    Has anyone else read this book, or his other book, "Good Calories, Bad Calories"?

    I have read Good Calories, Bad Calories. I follow the Protein Power diet plan, meat 3x a day, vegetables every day. No grains. Ever.

    I am 40, 5'8, 152 lbs. 9% bodyfat.

    Bear in mind that eating this way is socially difficult because your fat friends will tell you that eating so much fat "can't be healthy."

    Also for whatever reason, people tend to get personally insulted when they find out you don't eat bread, pasta or potatoes.
