Praise

“Gary Taubes deserves a national science medal for helping to raise the critical question of why the food we eat is killing us. He hasn’t sat on the sidelines saying just do more of the same. As a result, his insightful reading of the medical literature offers new hope to people suffering from obesity.”—Kevin Schulman, M.D., Professor of Medicine, Stanford University
 
“In my 40 years as a nutrition professor, I’ve never run across a diet book that so clearly explains how to follow a weight-loss diet and why it works.  In addition, Gary Taubes shows how continuing the Keto Diet contributes to good health for years to come.”—Janet C. King, Ph.D., Professor of the Graduate School, Department of Nutritional Sciences and Toxicology, University of California, Berkeley

“In The Case for Keto Gary Taubes vigorously challenges the conventional view that low-fat, plant-based diets are healthy and that eating fats is risky, providing an historical context of the effectiveness of keto diets that goes back more than 150 years.  I thoroughly recommend the book to anyone who struggles with weight control.”—Lewis Cantley, director of the Meyer Cancer Center at Weill Cornell Medicine and New York Presbyterian Hospital
 
The Case for Keto is built on fundamental principles that will pass the test of time.  Taubes persuasively argues that reversing fat accumulation can be achieved without hunger through a high-fat, low-carb diet.  As a clinician treating such obesity-prone individuals with type 2 diabetes, I have repeatedly and reproducibly seen the diet work miracles for those who will embrace it.”—David M. Harlan, M.D., William & Doris Krupp Professor of Medicine, co-director, UMass Diabetes Center of Excellence
 
“For the last decade and a half, Gary Taubes has been the unrelenting Socrates of the diet composition dialogue, peppering the field, journalists, the general public, and experts alike to question their assumptions and ask what we really know. Like those of Socrates, Taubes’ questions do not always make others happy, but they need to be heard. We need to ask whether our presumed knowledge about diet, health, and weight is well-founded. Taubes may not provide all the answers, but his incisive questions cannot and should not be ignored.”—David B. Allison, Ph.D, Distinguished Professor, Obesity Researcher, and Academic Dean

What should we eat? Gary Taubes provides the answer. Drawing on exhaustive research, and in clear language, he explains which foods are healthy for us, which foods are unhealthy—and why. He shows why obesity, diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic conditions are on the rise, and how we can intervene effectively. Gary Taubes’s work has changed everything about the way I eat.”—Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project
 
“In this outstanding book, Taubes presents a manifesto challenging the energy balance dietary dogma of the medical and nutritional authorities, along with a repudiation of Michael Pollan’s plant food principles.  A compelling case is made for low-carb, high-fat eating—towards ‘nutritional ketosis’—for people who fatten easily (most of us), while addressing the potential risk and unknowns.” —Eric Topol, M.D., cardiologist and Professor of Molecular medicine at Scripps Research, and author of Deep Medicine 
 
“Taubes blends science and clinical examples for a uniquely sound and honest explanation of a movement that has transformed the way we think and eat to improve our health.”—Marty Makary, M.D., Johns Hopkins, and author of The Price We Pay
 
“If you have a weight problem, or you know someone who does, then The Case for Keto is required reading. This is the book all health practitioners must read to understand obesity and diabetes and how to treat them.”—Kevin Fontaine, chair, Department of Health Behavior, University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health
 
The Case for Keto is a uniquely thoughtful discussion of low-carb, ketogenic eating. It is critically important reading for anyone trying to control their weight, improve their health and rationally decide what they should eat.”—Mitchell A. Lazar, M.D., director, Institute for Diabetes, Obesity, and Metabolism, University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine
 
“Gary Taubes’s book violates everything leading medical societies and governmental agencies espouse—but Taubes is right and they are wrong. Medicine, like life, is about risk and benefit. This book provides the best path for most people who are overweight or obese to restore health.”—Orrin Devinsky, M.D., Professor of Neurology & Neuroscience, NYU School of Medicine
