Lathe Poland is fit, healthy and slim - anything but the classic picture of an adult onset diabetes sufferer. So when he is diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes, he can't figure out why. Poland quickly learns that much of what he knew about healthy eating was based on myths or fifty year old science. Carb-Loaded: A Culture Dying to Eat is a chronicle of his search to find out why America's modern food culture is killing us. The upside? There is a lot that can be done!
Carb-Loaded traces the origins of common beliefs about (un)healthy eating through guidance from worldwide experts who offer short and long term solutions and challenge the status quo.
