Why We Get Fat - An Interview With Gary Taubes


Why do we get fat and what should we do about it? Conventional wisdom says eat less, move more. The problem is this advice rarely works.

Science writer Gary Taubes has spent the last decade finding a better way. His books, "Good Calories Bad Calories" as well as "Why We Get Fat – And What to Do About It" help provide answers.

In this interview, Taubes discusses his theories and the criticism from people who still believe calories are all that matter.
