436: Blogger CarbSane Calls Gary Taubes A Willful Fraud


Low-carb blogger and GCBC-skeptic CarbSane is today’s guest on The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore!

CarbSane is the Nom De Guerre of a blogger who has some rather radical ideas about low-carb diets and how/why they work/don’t work. Many will be surprised to hear the kind of foods she chooses to include in her eating plan. But regular listeners will, no doubt, be most startled by what she has to say about New York Times science journalist Gary Taubes and his book Good Calories, Bad Calories. CarbSane not only believes that Taubes is wrong and that the research he cites does not back his assertions, but that Taubes is aware of the fact and is “in it for the money” in her words (describing him as Taube$ frequently in her posts).

Regular listeners should be well aware of this fact, but it bears repeating: Jimmy Moore invites many people with many perspectives on this show, and he does not necessarily endorse their viewpoints. Gary Taubes has been a frequent guest and friend of the show for years, and will be making an upcoming appearance here on January 27, 2011 in Episode 439 in which he will likely rebut the views of CarbSane.
