Every criticism is spot on as far as I can tell. But if there is one theory that I hate even more than the stupid carbohydrate hypothesis is the theory that obesity is caused by "gluttony and sloth". Like Dr Lustig says, if six-month-old babies are fat nowadays, is it because they eat too much and don't exercise? It's ridiculous. There is something in the SAD that messes up our ability to regulate food intake and energy expenditure. The SAD makes me hungry all the time. I can lose weight while eating unlimited carbs from fruits and tubers. I can't lose weight while eating the processed crap that passes for food nowadays.
But definitely this current low-carb obsession that makes people quote from GCBC as if it was the bible has to die.
