Gary Taubes
“Despite decades of obesity research, and billions of dollars spent in the laboratory and on clinical trials, the bedrock fundamental concept underlying all nutrition and dietary advice is that fat and lean people are effectively identical physiologically, and that our bodies respond to what we eat the same way, except that the fat people at some point in their lives ate too much and expended too little energy and so became fat, while the lean people didn’t.”
Gary Taubes, The Case for Keto: Rethinking Weight Control and the Science and Practice of Low-Carb/High-Fat Eating

Gary Taubes
“To get fat out of those fat cells, as Yalow and Berson described it, the absolute fundamental requirement was not eating less or exercising more, but lowering the amount of insulin in the circulation. (Eating less and exercising, as I’ll discuss, can be inefficient ways of lowering insulin levels.)”

“Astwood’s belief that those who fatten easily are fundamentally, physiologically and metabolically different from those who don’t. This implies that those of us who fatten easily can get fat on precisely the same food and even the same amount on which lean people stay lean. We can’t be told to eat like lean and healthy people eat and expect that advice to work, because we get fat eating like lean and healthy people. Indeed, we get fat and hungry eating like lean and healthy people do.”

“The patients who succeed, these physicians agreed, tended to be those who could be induced to read at least some of the copious literature on LCHF/ketogenic eating that’s now available. They had to become people who cared enough to do the work.”

“There’s a good reason, as Miller said to me, why alcoholics don’t celebrate the successful completion of a twenty-eight-day rehab program with a champagne toast.”
