So, I was feeling in need of a little somethin' last night. I had this craving, a real deep-seated need for... what? I wandered around my house picking up books and putting them down. I looked around the kitchen for some project to start. I did some pushups on the living room floor. But, still, nothing was hitting the spot.
Then, I caught a glimpse of my beloved on the book shelf - my worn out, dog-eared copy of "Good Calories, Bad Calories". I realized how long it had been since I had me a good dose of the ingenius, Monsieur Gary Taubes. It's been far too long.
So, with a cuppa' tea in hand, I sat down to listen to a debate between Gary (we're on a first name basis in my imagination) and Dr. Ronald Krauss. This is an oldie, but a goodie. If you haven't heard this little ditty before, I guarantee it's worth thirty minutes of your time. It's a great introduction to the problems with carbohydrates and the erred demonization of fat. Gary Taubes for President!
