What’s making us fat? And how can we change? Building upon his critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, bestselling author Gary Taubes revisits these urgent questions.

Taubes reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century—none more damaging or misguided than the “calories-in, calories-out” model of why we get fat—and the good science that has been ignored. He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat is an essential guide to nutrition and weight management.

Complete with an easy-to-follow diet.  Featuring a new afterword with answers to frequently asked questions.

  • Galvanizing science

    Only a few chapters in and I realized I had to give the low carb lifestyle a chance. After reading this book, I get the feeling that our existing healthcare systems have blinders on. Our healthcare providers owe it to us to stop following all the low-fat dogma and start seriously studying the benefits of a carb restricted diet.
  • Well done!

    After reading Good Calories, Bad Calories, I was convinced, but had difficulty convincing friends and family to read it. This new book will do the trick and I am sure the result will be a happier, healthier family. Thank you GT.
