People

Here, I’ll list people whose works are relevant to health and fitness.
I’ll expand their entries with my thoughts on them and their works, and links to resources of theirs.

They tend to be Low Carb High Fat diet advocates.
They also tend to respect the scientific method.

I will at some point search explicitly for Low Fat High Carb advocates who present their cases scientifically, to try and balance out the viewpoints.

Gary Taubes

American journalist, writer and low-carb advocate.

Has a background in physics.
WroteGood Calories, Bad Calories (2007)”, “Why We Get Fat (2010)”, “The Case Against Sugar (2016)”

Dr Jason Fung

Canadian nephrologist, author.

Expert on intermittent fasting and low carb dieting.
WroteThe Complete Guide to Fasting (2016)”, “The Obesity Code… (2016)”, “The Diabetes Code… (2018)”

I find that he oversimplifies the typical arguments he expects from the opposing camps – those who disagree with the Hormone Model of weight control.
He very strongly opposes the idea of “Calories In, Calories Out”.

I find the fact that people argue over this frustrating, so I will very clearly delineate the two models to the extent that I can relate to them.

Brought the skills of his trade to the fields of health and medicine.

He gives detailed and quite comprehensive lectures on the biochemistry of chronic diseases.
He strongly advocates the medical scan: “CAC” (coronary artery calcification), which is an X-ray of the heart that actually shows the extent of calcified plaque build-up.
