Taubes: Thought Experiment

“If this effect is tiny, say, five calories worth of fat get trapped in A's fat cells every day, he'll still put on ten pounds of fat over the 20 years of the experiment and weigh 10 pounds more than his genetically-identical brother eating his almost identical diet. If this fat-trapping amounts to 20 calories a day - still less than one percent of the calories A is consuming - that would amount to forty pounds of excess fat over the course of the experiment. It would still be too subtle of an effect to be observable in the relatively short-term experiments done to date on sucrose consumption.”

In other words, if you miss the calorie estimate by any amount, you'll be obese.  What's the solution?  Don't pretend the human conscious mind was built to control the human animal's intake.  No animal needs conscious intervention to avoid obesity WHEN IT EATS THE FOOD IT EVOLVED TO EAT, the human animal included.  

Why some eggs heads decided we should eat wheat and industrial seed oils, while avoiding the most natural human food on the planet - saturated animal fats - is beyond description.

Eat meat, eggs, vegetables, nuts and seeds, little fruit or starch, no sugar no wheat.
