Is Low-Carb the Way to Go?

Could low carbohydrate diets be the antidote to the ever-growing obesity epidemic?

Gary Taubes thinks so, and I, for one, am now rooted firmly in his camp. But Taubes' book, "Good Calories, Bad Calories," can be a difficult read for those whose eyes glaze over when faced with chapter upon chapter about complex biochemical processes.

Enter Adam Kosloff, whose new website, Why Low Carb Diets Work, is sort of a Clif's Note version of Taubes' tome. It's perfect for anyone who's interested in Taubes' work but intimidated by the density of his prose.
