Gary Taubes New Book and Blog

FitWit has been a fan of Taubes for a while.  Taubes diligently seeks out the why of obesity.  Why do people take in more energy than they expend?  Or more to the point, why do people not expend the energy they’ve taken in? That is to ask, what mechanisms are at work that promote energy storage and suppress utilization of stored energy?  The answers to these questions are far more complicated than “calories in; calories out.”
