In an appearance on CNN’s “Larry King Live” on Friday, October 19, 2007, the author of the book GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES Gary Taubes was on the program discussing his new book challenging the conventional wisdom regarding fat consumption, a healthy diet, and the unique negative role carbohydrates have played in the obesity epidemic and other health calamities. Featuring guest host from “The View” Joy Behar, the lineup also included Oprah Winfrey’s diet guru Dr. Mehmet Oz as well as respected health expert Dr. Andrew Weil. The discussion was rather contentious as you can see for yourself in the following transcript of the entire hour: transcripts.cnn.com But it was Dr. Weil’s thoughtful and level-headed response to Taubes’ book that stood out the most about this broadcast. In just those few minutes of airtime, Dr. Weil expressed precisely what Gary Taubes hopes that most doctors, nutritionists, and health professionals will take away from GOOD CALORIES, BAD CALORIES. Whether you are a physician, researcher, or patient, then you will want to get your hands on a copy of this book. It is available NOW on Amazon.com: www.amazon.com
