Building upon this critical work in Good Calories, Bad Calories and presenting fresh evidence for his claim, Taubes now revisits the urgent question of what’s making us fat—and how we can change—in this exciting new book. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes’s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience.

I couldn’t put this book down. It sounded very convincing. I now understand that carb overload is a much more serious business than I could imagine. Am fully convinced! Thank you. Am now going to purchase Gary’s latest book on sugar.

I loved this book. For years I couldn't figure out why I cannot have one small piece of chocolate, why it is easier for me to abstain from sugar altogether and why external accountability works so well for me. It was a relief to figure all of this out and actually use it to my benefit rather than feeling weird about the way I am. Really grateful to Gretchen. By the way, I've used her one sentence diary for 3 years now and keep going. It is a strong habit now - to write down what happened during the day, in one sentence. Well, maybe 2 or 3 short ones. :)

What a great book. A must read. I loved everything about it. To hear Arnold read a couple of chapters was really cool. The messages are so loud and clear - go and make a difference; make the world a better place; you can do it! Loved the book.

This is the book to have and revisit regularly. Ken has the deepest understanding of ACIM and he is so articulate in his messages. A wonderful programme!
Although the recording is at times not of brilliant quality, it's still OK as the message is what matters most.
