I see the website has been reformatted a bit. Priorities, priorities.
Eh ... is there much to say about this one? Not really. Except to highlight this:
A caveat here: I’m willing to be convinced that this hypothesis is not an energy balance hypothesis, and so not a brain-rules-and-the-fat-passively-follows notion, but so far I haven’t seen an argument that’s convincing. I confess, though, that I find the hypothesis surprisingly difficult to understand, which suggests that either I’m losing my intellectual facilities in my dotage — always possible — or that I’m so blinded by my love of my own hypothesis that I refuse to understand it—at least equally likely — or maybe, just maybe, that Dr. Guyenet and other proponents of the hypothesis don’t really understand it either.
Bingo Mr. Taubes. Rather than several more parts trying to unravel Stephan's work, perhaps just one that actually addresses the problems he (and others, like yours truly) have raised with yours is in order. Take your time, there's a ton to deal with there, but if you have the time for this sort of random rambling, surely you have the time and passion to address the SCIENCE and your so-called hypothesis.
