An easier read than Good Calories Bad Calories,
This review is from: Why We Get Fat: And What to Do about It (Rough Cut) (Hardcover)
This book felt a little like a synopsis of Good Calories Bad Calories and was just what I needed. GCBC was heavy going and sometimes it was quite hard to extrapolate the point that he was trying to get across. WWGF flowed well, the science was easy to follow and the "diet" given at the end was to the point and so simple that it brought home to me just how much junk is foisted onto us for two main reasons. One, to make money and two, so that no one has to admit they were wrong.
I read this on the kindle and, unlike some non fiction books on the kindle, the diagrams and photo's were legible.

Junk being foisted on us: The elephant in the room here is that if we all went low-carb, especially very-low or zero-carb, most of the food industry would go out of business.
(After I went very low-carb, I found that when food shopping, about 95% of the supermarket was of no interest to me whatsoever).
For that reason alone, the purest (very)low-carb message will not be allowed to succeed by the various vested interests, which are intimately connected with the news media and the politicians who decide on food and "health" policy. Let's not even get started on the "health" (i.e. illness) profession and the drug industry, which have their own vested interests.
