About this title

[MP3-CD audiobook format in Vinyl case. *NOTE: The MP3-CD format requires a compatible audio CD player.]

[Read by Don Hagen]

If you're considering a low-carb diet, read this book first. It will change the way you think about what you eat -- and how you should be eating to lose weight and optimize your health, now and for the long term. -- By now, the low-carb diet's refrain is a familiar one: ''Bread is bad for you. Fat doesn't matter. Carbs are the real reason you can't lose weight.'' -- The low-carb universe Dr. Atkins brought into being continues to expand. Low-carb diets, from South Beach to The Zone and beyond, are still the go-to method for weight loss for millions. These diets' marketing may differ, but they all share two crucial components: the condemnation of ''carbs'' and an emphasis on meat and fat for calories. Even the latest diet trend, the Paleo diet, is -- despite its increased focus on some whole foods -- just another variation on the same carbohydrate fears. -- In The Low-Carb Fraud, longtime leader in the nutritional science field T. Colin Campbell outlines where and how the low-carb proponents get it wrong: where the belief came from that carbohydrates are bad and why it persists despite all the evidence to the contrary. The foods we misleadingly refer to as ''carbs'' aren't all created equal, and treating them that way has major consequences for our nutritional well-being.

About the Author:

T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been at the forefront of nutrition research for more than forty years. His legacy, the China Study, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the author of the bestselling book, The China Study, and the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has received more than seventy grant-years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than three hundred research papers. The China Study was the culmination of a twenty-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.

Howard Jacobson, PhD, is an online marketing consultant, health educator, and ecological gardener from Durham, North Carolina. He earned Masters of Public Health and Doctor of Health Studies degrees from Temple University, and a Bachelor of Arts degree in history from Princeton. Howard cofounded VitruvianWay.com, an online marketing agency, and is a coauthor of Google AdWords for Dummies. When Howard is not chasing groundhogs away from blueberry bushes or wrestling with Google, he relaxes by playing Ultimate Frisbee and campfire songs from the 1960s. His current life goal is to turn the world into a giant food forest.
