I think it was very important to note how Taubes said that the other guys diet would work, if we weren't already unwell from decades of a bad diet. Atkins called his diet a corrective diet. An imbalanced solution, to an imbalanced diet. I think that is important to understand. Low carb is eaten to repair the damage done.

If you catch it before the damage is done, you could eat more carbs, and just worry about the quality of the carbs, and a bit less of the quantity. This explains why some of us do fine on 150 grams, and others ( like me ), have to stick to 50 grams. I ate worse for 30 years..lol. I developed diabetes. For people who ate too many carbs from fruits, and quinoa, vegetables, and plain oatmeal, they might not have hurt their bodies as much, and need less correction.

I think both of the panelists were against the SAD, and even the diet suggested by the medical establishment today. I do think the other guy was suggesting a diet that at the upper ranges of low carb, would blend with his diet. At 120 grams of carbs, the amount of servings of carbs that you can eat is incredible. I get 9 servings of vegetables a day and it is just 1/2 of that ( 61 grams.. 15 fiber )

If I had 18 servings a day, with 30 grams of fiber, how far would it really be from what doctors want you to eat? At 122 grams ( 92 net ), it would still be low carb. I guess it still would not have whole grain, or corn, which is really why they are pushing the diet of today, but I think it would be a diet that would benefit society. In a generation,most people wouldn't need very low carb. Grocery stores would certainly look a lot different..lol. ( 1/3rd the size ).

Thanks for that link! I watched half of it... but then the video gave out. I ended up just listening to the rest - but a great conversation, even if they didn't completely agree!

Thanks for finding and sharing it!

Great video Russell! At first, I couldn't tell if they both shared the same views or not. I didn't get to watch the entire video, but saved it so I can watch it later when I have more time. Isn't Youtube a great source for information?

Thanks for sharing it with us.

I am watching this video right now, and felt I should share it with all of you:

I find it very both of the panelists to be interesting, and tend to think the answers lie somewhere between the two of them. Many of the basics of their diets are the same, and it is interesting to note what they both exclude. These are the causes of the obesity epidemic, and all the diseases we suffer from today.
