Any one else seen this article or read this book? It looks like a rehash/simplification of Gary Taubes but if it is getting out there in the mainstream (the Daily Mail of all places!!) then it must be a good thing, right?http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-1325453/Everything-thought-knew-food-WRONG.html

I wouldn't listen to the body TOO blindly. THe body is the same organism that makes you crave sweets, nicotine, etc. That is the same body craving that many nutritionists are using to say things like 'carbohydrates are needed to keep blood glucose levels stable' and other kinds of twisted bunk. Talk about hair of the dog that bit you!

Dear Queen, I'm not a dietician or an health professional in any way so take that into consideration when reading what I'm about to say: Whatever you read, whatever position anyone takes about anything - especially about food - can be countered easily by what another person might say. Everything is up for grabs. The most you can do for yourself is listen to your body! Mine says: meat in moderation; raw vegetables in large quantities at least once a day (I have a big spinach and veggie salad for my noon meal); some fiber every day; severely limit starchy foods and sugar. Absolutely zero soda of any kind, diet or regular, and no packaged fruit juice either. Lots of pure water.
Eating is not rocket science. The best foods for you are (organic) unprocessed and even uncooked. Go towards that...not aiming for perfection but for slow but steady change.
As for exercise: for gosh sake MOVE! It just makes sense.
