Worth reading this blog post in my view...

Comment on Guyenet vs. Taubes; or Why I Don't Give a Carp What the Kitavans Eat

for example
...the cure is not necessarily the reverse of the cause when it comes to disease. Metabolic syndrome brings a whole host of issues, not the least of which is broken carbohydrate metabolism. So while carbs in general may not lead to metabolic syndrome, once you've arrived dumping carbohydrates on your broken carbohydrate metabolism is tantamount to doing jumping jacks on two broken legs. I believe the science (along with a massive stack of anecdotal evidence) is pretty clear here, in that the most successful treatment for metabolic syndrome is carbohydrate restriction.

Very interesting blog post. I enjoyed reading the one he was responding to, too. I've read Taubes, but not a lot from his detractors.
