A round-up of health news I discovered this week. Image courtesy of FreeDigitalPhoto.net and Stuart Miles.

I read a lot on health, fitness and diet. Here are some articles you might want to take a look at if, like me, are focused healthy living.

First up, two pieces this week from the man himself, Gary Taubes, author of Why We Get Fat?

First up: Are You A Carbaholic? There is science behind why giving up carbs is difficult for people.

The second is an article about sugar and nutrition research that he wrote for the New York Times in January (how did I miss this?). I’m reading his The Case Against Sugar now and hope to have a review up soon. Read more…

January Reading: The Case Against Sugar

My first read of the new year, The Case Against Sugar by the man whose done more to influenced the nutrition debate over the last 10+ years than anyone else, Gary Taubes.

I try avoiding sugar as much as possible. It jacks up my blood sugar and insulin levels too much. It’s why I don’t eat fruit (with the exception of the occasional berry).

The only way to really avoid it is to not eat any processed foods — it’s loaded with sucrose, high-fructose corn syrup or the more than 50+ names sugar goes by.  But is sugar really the new tobacco?

Today I start Gary Taubes’ new book, The Case Against Sugar. As readers know, I’m a huge fan of Taubes. His Why We Get Fat is the book that saved my life and set me down my ketogenic path.

Taubes did a great job taking down the bad science behind the idea that dietary fat (saturated fat in particular) was causing heart attacks, obesity, diabetes, metabolic syndrome and recent growth of cancers. Looks like he’s putting the spotlight on the real culprit.
