Thanks again. I think adding the "high fat" clarification makes it clearer. The contrast as I understand it is between high fat/low carb and low fat diets.. . . I think Taubes would say that he is a fan of high fat diets. If you learn music, the first distinction you learn is major versus minor. When it comes to nutrition, the first major distinction is about food: fat, protein, and carbohydrate. I don't think Taubes would agree with "eat less" when it comes to eating. If you eat the right food (low carb), then you can always eat to satiety and not gain weight. The problem is that most of us are addicted to carbs and it's no small task getting over that addiction. Anyway, good luck with your health.
