Larry King Live: "Great Diet Debate"

Everyone needs to take the time to check out Larry King tonight. He's gonna have a pretty lively conversation going. Guests will be:

Gary Taubes, author of Good Calories,Bad Calories. I know from reading his book, he supports a carb restricted, higher fat dietary approach.

Dr Mehmet Oz, best known as Oprah Winfrey's diet guru, he is definitely in the low-fat, low-calorie, portion control camp. He is co-author of the book, You on a Diet.

Dr Andrew Weil, natural health advocate and alternative remedy promoter who also follows the low-fat line of thinking.

Bob Harper, Jillian Michaels, or Kim Lyons. One of these three trainers on the hit NBC-TV reality show "The Biggest Loser" will participate. Bob Harper and Jillian Michaels are mindful of how carbohydrate-restriction are helpful for some with weight loss, but Kim Lyons is a low-fat and low-calorie supporter.

Joy Behar, panelist from the ABC show The View. Now what she can add to this discussion, I have no idea. But it will surely be a sight to see.

They will be discussing the controversial topics raised in Taubes book, dietary fat is not the evil cause of all diseases, carbs are. It should be a very lively and possibly heated debate. So check it out tonight. Show time is 9:00 PM EST.

Joy Behar is actually hosting (filling in for Larry), so that is why she seems out of place on the guest list.

I missed it. But I really wish Dr. Atkins was still alive--he'd have been so thrilled to see that just about everyone is beginning to validate his research.
