Guest: Gary Taubes
Gary Taubes returns to UW Radio to discuss his new book, Why We Get Fat. Gary discusses how the overemphasis of certain types of carbohydrates, not excess calories or fats, has led to the obesity epidemic our country faces today. Topics include why the misguided “calories in-calories out” diet doesn’t work, the role genetics play in our weight, and the importance of insulin’s regulation of our fat tissue.
Gary’s book is available in the UW Store!
