    Hi Darya,
    I consider myself to be fairly well read when it comes to nutrition. Still I have to confess that the recent Whole Health Source / Ludwig articles you’ve linked to left me feeling confused and frustrated.

    Initially I heard about Dr. Ludwig’s new book (Always Hungry) and was looking forward to reading it. I thought to myself “hey I’ve been eating more fat and it seems to help me with satiety and my nutritionist keeps telling me more fat is better – let’s see what he has to say”. Then I saw the first link you posted on a Friday roundup where you mentioned something along the lines of being seduced by the new popular diet book (Ludwig’s). I don’t want to read a fad book so based on your comment and the article and took it off my list.

    Soon after that I sat down to watch the Pollan documentary you recommended and hey – there’s Dr. Ludwig on the screen! I liked Michael Pollan’s approach and if he has Ludwig as an expert in the documentary maybe he’s worth taking a look at? I see the Medium post from Ludwig and it makes sense – back on my reading list his book goes. And now here’s another article contradicting Ludwig’s post point by point. It’s enough to make your head spin!

    Is all this back and forth aimed at a very niche audience? Lately it feels that the more I read the more confused I feel. It leaves me wanting to go back to calories in / calories out. Except I know that’s way too simple. Thoughts? Thanks for your time.

      Thank you so much for asking this publicly. You’re right, this argument is for the scientific community and doesn’t matter much to you. Ludwig is a good scientist. The argument Guyenet is making is that the mechanism that makes real food less fattening can’t be explained entirely by the insulin hypothesis, it’s more complex.

      Whenever you’re confused about nutrition, go back and read this article and it should help put things in perspective:

        Darya, Thanks for taking the time to reply. The post you linked to makes sense. I’ll focus more on real foods versus going down the rabbit hole of all these different theories. Thanks!
