it was amazing
Read in June, 2010

This is a very important book. Taubes meticulously examines research conducted over the past three decades, and is able to come to one conclusion: dietary fat is not the culprit in the obesity epidemic (and related health problems) that has gripped the US; rather it is sugar and refined carbohydrates, the consumption of which has risen exponentially. Implementing the principles described in this book has resulted in significant improvements in my overall health.

Taubes has also written a "primer" version of this called "Why We Get Fat" which I haven't read, but which may prove a more accessable entree to the research than this massive & scholarly tome.
