The Low-Carb Fraud

By Howard Jacobson & T. Colin Campbell
Narrated by Don Hagen / 2 hours 9 minutes

By now, the low-carb diet’s refrain is a familiar one: “Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn’t matter.Carbs are the real reason you can’t lose weight.”

The low-carb universe Dr. Atkins brought into beingcontinues to expand. Low-carb diets, from South Beach to The Zone and beyond,are still the go-to method for weight loss for millions. These diets’ marketingmay differ, but they all share two crucial components: the condemnation of“carbs” and an emphasis on meat and fat for calories. Even the latest diettrend, the Paleo diet, is—despite its increased focus on some wholefoods—just another variation on the same carbohydrate fears.

In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in thenutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how thelow-carb proponents get it wrong: where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. Thefoods we misleadingly refer to as “carbs” aren’t all created equal, andtreating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

If you’re considering a low-carb diet, read this book first.It will change the way you think about what you eat—and how you should beeating to lose weight and optimize your health, now and for the long term.
