    The criticism he offered to Guyenet finished with "in science it is always a good idea to consider all the facts, not just the ones that fit your theory. In fact, please do it before giving a talk on the subject. "

    Perhaps he should consider the log in his own eye before the speck in Guyenet's eye?

    On the points that they disagree on, I think that Taubes is wrong.
    Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

    Yes, that last comment was a bit snarky.
    Honestly those two should just drop trou and get out a ruler and settle the matter once and for all.

    But while I still think they are both right, I still think they each only have a piece of a very complex puzzle.
