Dr Oz did a show called The Man Who Thinks Everything Dr Oz Says Is Wrong to go head-to-head with Gary Taubes, author of Why We Get Fat. Taubes believes that everything Doctor Oz says about how to live your life and lose weight is wrong. What does Gary Taubes think is the best way to lose weight? And why does he think that Dr Oz’s approach is completely wrong?
The Man Who Thinks Everything Dr Oz Says Is Wrong
Gary Taubes want to shatter what he believes are myths that surround weight loss. For example, he does not believe that eating too much and not exercising enough are why we are fat. Taubes eats eggs, cheese, bacon and sausage for breakfast every single morning. He says we are told not to eat red meat, butter and cheese, but all of this is wrong. In fact, when he goes to the grocery store, he goes straight to the meat counter and skips over the potatoes. Taubes believes that dietitians and public health officials are just saying conventional wisdom that is completely wrong and does not work. Could this be why you or other loved ones are struggling with their weight?
Gary Taubes Diet: Weight Gain Misconceptions
Dr Oz asked Gary Taubes why he thinks we are making the wrong assumptions about dieting and weight loss. Taubes said that terrible scientists who were passing as medical researchers 50 years ago came up with these assumptions that they never proved, and it turned out that they were wrong, but these messages are passed on to doctors in medical school. Gary Taubes has spent the past 10 years trying to show that the evidence is pretty clear regarding the best ways to lose weight.
