The Weight Thing

From Gary Taubes: a succinct summary of the path he advocates as the best hypothesis about our national obesity problem. I've posted about this many times before, but this is a really good summary in a response to an article in the NYT Magazine by a writer who tried all of the conventional methods and found that they just didn't work. She apparently decided it was her weak will and now she's stuck. (I admit that I didn't read the article, so correct me if I'm wrong.) Anyway, you can preview what Taubes has been saying for two excellent books now in this brief summary signed by a lot of knowledgeable folks. To health!
