Please note: This is a review and analysis of the book, not the original book. This review and analysis is not endorsed by or affiliated with Gary Taube. We are simply inundated with diet and nutrition advice. It seems that every book contradicts the other. I heard once that if you really want to know how much we know about something, see how many books are written on the topic. If we have many books, it means we don´t really know much about it. Each book has a different theory. However, there are some books out there that truly break the mold. Why We Get Fat is one of them. It shatters all the preconceived notions as to why we get fat and what we can do about it. In this edition of Summary Shorts, we will discuss, analyze and summarize the main points of the book. Enjoy! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Doron Alon. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/097480/bk_acx0_097480_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Guide to Gary Taubes´s The Case Against Sugar by Instaread: Instaread
This is a summary of Gary Taubes´ Why We Get Fat: And What to Do About It, an eye-opening, myth-shattering examination of what makes us fat. In the book, Taubes visits the urgent question of what´s making us fat - and how we can change. Persuasive, straightforward, and practical, Why We Get Fat makes Taubes´s crucial argument newly accessible to a wider audience. He reveals the bad nutritional science of the last century, none more damaging or misguided than the ´´calories-in, calories-out´´ model of why we get fat, and the good science that has been ignored, especially regarding insulin´s regulation of our fat tissue. He also answers the most persistent questions: Why are some people thin and others fat? What roles do exercise and genetics play in our weight? What foods should we eat, and what foods should we avoid? Packed with essential information, Why We Get Fat is an invaluable key in our understanding of an international epidemic and a guide to what each of us can do about it, This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don´t have the current time to listen to the whole thing. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours. 1.

Exploring the controversial science of diet and health, ´´Good Calories, Bad Calories´´ is a tour de force of scientific investigation certain to redefine the ongoing debate about food and its effects on health. For decades we have been taught that fat is bad for us, carbohydrates better, and that the key to a healthy weight is eating less and exercising more. Yet despite this advice, we have seen unprecedented epidemics of obesity and diabetes. Taubes argues that the problem lies in refined carbohydrates, like white flour, easily digested starches, and sugars, and that the key to good health is the kind of calories we take in, not the number. Called ´´a very important book,´´ by Andrew Weil and ?´´ destined to change the way we think about food,´´ by Michael Pollan, this groundbreaking book by award-winning science writer Gary Taubes shows us that almost everything we believe about the nature of a healthy diet is wrong. Don´t miss Gary Taubes´s latest book, The Case Against Sugar, available now.
An airplane pilot has to complete a checklist before taking off to avoid crashing and stay in the air. So too,Automatic Pilot is a TV pilot writer´s checklist to keep from crashing and stay on the air. Automatic Pilot is the definitive guide on how to create and write an original pilot. It takes you through the step-by-step process of writing your own pilot script. It is adapted from Bill Taub´s very successful UCLA Extension Writers´ Program online workshop, Writing a Spec Pilot, which he has been teaching to students all over the world since 2006. Up until the series Desperate Housewives, developed from spec pilot, burst upon the scene, and became an instant hit, nobody encouraged writers to write a spec pilot. Since then the floodgates have opened and every writer, including some of the biggest names, is either writing a spec pilot or thinking about writing one. Like the workshop itself, which crossed borders, Automatic Pilot is designed for writers no matter where they are. Whether you are writing a series about Congress or Parliament, the CIA or MI-5, a family in Bangladesh or Brooklyn, the process is the same. Whether it´s a half-hour comedy, one-hour drama, animation, or even a Web series, the steps are the same. While the odds of selling a spec pilot are slim, the chance your spec pilot will impress those in charge to hire you on staff is a good enough reason to have one. And every writer these days must have at least one spec pilot in their portfolio. Automatic Pilot is not only an insider´s guide on how to create an original pilot, it´s an audiobook that will inspire you, motivate you, and help you discover (or rediscover) a sense of freedom and joy in writing, no matter what stage you´re at - whether you´re new to the writing world or an old pro - it will be something you will return to time and again. 1.
