Abstract
This audio file is an interview on Q with author Gary Taubes about his new book, Why We Get Fat: And What To Do About It. He says exercise isn't the key to losing weight. And neither is counting calories. Taubes -- an award-winning science journalist -- says that much of the conventional wisdom, from doctors and weight-loss shows alike, is wrong. But many doctors and dietitians strenuously disagree with Taubes, saying that there is no one-size-fits-all weight solution and that to suggest it's that simple, is just plain wrong.

Abstract
This book challenges the conventional belief that parents must get overweight children to eat less and exercise more. In the long run, she says, making them go hungry and forcing them to be active makes children preoccupied with food, prone to overeating, turned off to activity, and likely to gain too much weight. Instead, it states that, "to resolve the problem of child overweight, we must do the opposite of what seems right. We must feed children rather than depriving them."
