Last week I read Gary Taubes’ wonderful book How We Get Fat and What To Do About It (2010). The book taught me nothing new, but I admired the clear way Gary expressed things. In particular he reminded me that it is impossible to lose weight by eating less or exercising more. Because of insulin, if you exercise more, you WILL eat more. If you eat less, you WILL move less. You cannot overcome it with willpower.
Pause for a moment to consider how much of what most people and doctors “know” is bullcorn. I continue to be amazed by it. Science and math, reading, are the only things on which you can rely. What people only tell you is worthless.
