We all get it from differing places. Some we trust, others we just raise an eyebrow and carry on. It's funny how people worry about what we are eating, but not what they are eating.
I know I need to keep an eye on what I eat and I have chosen the low carb way of eating. It benefits me more over all than any advice I have gotten from other experts.
Here is a quote from Adam's book: Bright Spots and Landmines:
"A handful of healthcare providers and nutritionists I’ve met do not agree with this approach, arguing that not enough long-term research exists on low-carb eating. My own health data and quality of life has convinced me, without a doubt, that this is a critical Diabetes Bright Spot in the short- and long-term. Interestingly, eating more calories from fat and fewer from carbs has improved my cholesterol and triglyceride levels (lipids) and body weight, contrary to the typical advice about eating too much fat. Gary Taubes’ excellent book Good Calories, Bad Calories or the shorter Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It delves into the fascinating and complicated connection between diet and heart disease."
You do have to find what works for you individually, and you have to be patient enough to allow it to work.
The whole article he recently wrote on food advice is kind of funny and burns my biscuits at the same time. What doctor tells you to eat whatever you want, just cover it with insulin??? Wow, that is nuts, but it is far more common than you may think.

Keep in mind, this is what works for him. We are all different, but until you try, you may never know.
