Gary Taubes on Dr. Oz Today

I’m not a follower of the Dr. Oz daytime television show, but I won’t miss it today because Gary Taubes, author of Good Calories, Bad Calories and Why We Get Fat, is scheduled to appear. The promo for the show says, “The man who thinks everything Dr. Oz says is wrong.” It is scheduled to air at 3:00 PM today on the West Coast, but check your local listing for the channel and time in your area.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

I just checked Gary's rating on Amazon and it is 53 (that's out of about 6 million books), so not bad. I wish I had thought to check right after the show. So, it looks like it may have backfired for Oz, who did his best to make low-carb look disgusting and dangerous.

I DVRd this and just watched it. I admire Taubes for putting himself in this position. I thought he did an amazing job given the kind of person Dr. Oz is. Hopefully some people watching will have discovered that Dr. Oz's advice doesn't work for them so they'll read Taubes' new book.
