I sorta felt the same, but it might be good, Gary is a good writer, and it might make a better loaner.

I'm really mostly hoping for some good inspiring analogies for some of the processes. I still draw from the comparison of growing fat to growing tall.

My pre-order was shipped two days ago, but I guess it's just slow due to the season. It's in Indianapolis right now...

chapters. i'm in Canada though...if you're in the US i'm sure you could find it at Borders!

amazon is cheaper i'm sure, the cover price is $27.99 (Canadian) but the store had a sale on hardcover books so i still got a little $ off.

I can pick it up for you

Interested to see what you think of it. I'm not that interested in the weight loss part of LC, I need to find a book that's easier than GCBC that explains why statins are evil and why eating red meat will not kill you. The only problem is that it has to be fact based and not have a stupid title... Guess I'll be picking up both Cholesterol Cons and Fat and Cholesterol are Good for You. I will then buy a case of the winner and pass them out on the street corner

Just loaded to the kindle!

Tamara, have you ever read know your fats by Enig?

Also check out the Weston Price site. There are all kinds of things that are referenced and Chris Masterjohn one of the contributors has a website titled Cholesterol - You Can't Live Without It!

Of course the books you've mentioned are wonderful too.

Today is going to be a really great day for me,
because my husband is back at work, and my chores are completed,
and I get to sit in front of the fire
and read Gary Taubes' new diet book
that was published TODAY.

Reading new diet books is part of my Hobby,
but I'm especially interested in this one, because
Taube's 2007 "Good Calories Bad Calories" is one of my all-time favorites.
I pre-ordered this book from Amazon a long time ago,
The Title is: "Why we get Fat and What to do about it"
I understand it is primarily supposed to be an easier version of GCBD.

However after I pre-ordered my book,
I decided I didn't want to wait till it was shipped to me to read it,
and gave myself the luxury of ALSO pre-ordering a Kindle version.
It arrived on my Kindle around mid-night last night,
and today I get to read it.

I'm 3 chapters in and I love it so far.
Amazon says my hard copy was shipped,
and no doubt it will arrive in a few days.
Probably then I'll use my my pink highlighter while reading it again.

Some might find that a bit "Obsessive",
but as I've said before....
“Obsessed” is what the weak and lazy call the Dedicated."

I can't BELIEVE it.
The postman came AND my hard copy is here now too.
So, I'm almost half way through my Kindle copy and I still love it.
Same concepts as GCBC, but so much more understandable.
I love it so far.

I've never heard of it before. I think I got fat because I ate too much junk food while comforting with food.
