I've read both books. If you want to get more historical context, and more in depth studies, then I'd recommend reading Good Calories Bad Calories. However it's a LOT heavier on the science (not dumbed down much at all), and incredibly detailed on the history of different cultural studies.

I wouldn't say my knowledge was greatly more enriched from reading GCBC after having read WWGF, I tended to just get a lot more angry at Jean Mayer.

I just posted a new thread about this so everyone would know but...

I just watched a terrific documentary on Netflix called "Hungry for Change."
It's very well done and is a great compliment to the book "Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It."

Exactly me, too.

I'm not sure I've actually said that but that is the case for me as well. I could never understand why I was unable to cut back or eat 'sensibly'. I'd try for a while then throw in the towel and eat whatever tasted good.
