That wasn't too long of a rant at all. :-)
I have doctors and scientists in my close family and I'm in an Ph.D. program, so I empathize.
A couple of things come to mind:
1. The change in your health, mental and bodily, might be the best argument for your husband--and for you, too. It sounds as though trying to convince him by other means might be counterproductive for a while, if only from the standpoint of your well-being. The ability to relax is, after all, part of a healthy lifestyle.
My own strategy is changing my own eating and exercise habits and allowing my family to ask about the results, if and when they become visible. When they do, I'll point them to Taubes's book and this blog and signal that I'm not interested in changing their minds.
2. While it sounds as though more discussion may not be the best thing for you at this time, when you do talk about this issue again with your husband, perhaps he can appreciate the fact that the numerous sources in Taubes's book--pointing to the benefits of low-carb lifestyle--*have* indeed been published in "high-impact journals."
