Taubes lets his anti-fat bias show in the following ways: he accepts unconditionally that fatness is medically problematic, correlated with disease, whereas if stigma is removed, so is the correlation (Roseto, PA study, for one), and he accepts that there is, in fact, a current "obesity epidemic" though Paul Campos and J. Eric Oliver dispute this nicely.
Taubes has nothing new to offer: just eat only certain kinds of foods and never other kinds.
William Bennet says it flat out: just eat a monotonous diet. As long as you don't deviate: from meat, from cabbage soup, from organic tangerines - and lately, potatoes or Twinkies (take your pick of THOSE diets), you will lose a ton of weight. Because you'll be so sick of whatever you have to restrict yourself to, you'll refuse to eat much of it. And as long as you eat only that and don't deviate, you won't be eating much, period.
It's called 'low-calorie.' Low-carb, high-carb, soup, nuts, salad, baked Alaskas - eat only that and it ends up being LOW-CALORIE. duh.
