    Was reading Taubs' "Why we get fat" this morning and found this

    A low carb doctor a decade ahead of Atkins charged with a crime for promoting a low carb diet, lol!!!!

    Herman Taller

    In 1961, Dr. Herman Taller, an obstetrician, published ''Calories Don't Count,'' which preached that one could banish fat while eating three full meals a day - provided that one ingested three ounces of polyunsaturated vegetable oil daily, along with a high-protein and low-carbohydrate diet. The Government denounced that diet as a ''worthless scheme foisted on a gullible public,'' and Dr. Taller was eventually convicted of fraud and conspiracy for using the book to peddle a particular brand of safflower capsules. Meanwhile, the book sold 2 million copies.

    Calories Don't Count

    I am wondering when Mark will be led off in chains for the horrendous sales he has promoted? Seriously, what a world!?!

    (Of course conventional doctors were happy Taller was arrested and convicted)

    Primal/Paleo is not for everyone, it's for those who have committed to understand.
    READ THE BOOK! Robb Wolf says: "Trying to convince people to save their own ass will burn you out."

    and yes, calories DO count my little piggies
