I had 2 hours to kill the other day, so I read through Why We Get Fat at the local BN. (I knew going in that Taubes wasn't a particular favorite of mine, but since so many people love him, I wanted to at least read his short book.) One thing that jumped out at me was that, if I remember correctly, all the studies he cites on exercise were on "cardio", which is logical given the premise of the book. Does anyone know if he has commented on resistance training in either GCBC or any interviews? Since good heavy resistance training helps achieve the specific goals he lists, i.e. insulin sensitivity and sensitizing muscles to nutrient inflow, I was interested in whether he had an opinion, especially since a lot of people seem to be influenced by his books in deciding on whether to exercise.
No announcement yet.
