Adam Kosloff is a Yale University educated web writer who has single-handedly pumped out over 31,000 web content pages and written multiple critically-admired books. All together, he has published more than 15 million written words.
After graduating Yale in 1999 with a degree in physics, Adam moved to Los Angeles to try to make it as a screenwriter. He basically failed, although he did write a few TV show episodes that got produced and worked with legendary filmmaker Mel Brooks.
In 2007, while working as a web writer by day and struggling screenwriter by night, Adam had a “come to Jesus” moment, sparked by science writer Gary Taubes’ book Good Calories, Bad Calories. This book convinced Adam not only to stop eating carbohydrates but also to abandon his screenwriting work in favor of advocating for Taubes’ alternative theory about obesity, the Lipophilia Hypothesis.
Adam is convinced that this theory holds the key to ending the obesity epidemic, curing most chronic diseases and saving humanity.
His blog, Caloriegate, and podcast, Escape from Caloriegate, chronicle the broad implications of Lipophilia and other strange but cool counterintuitive ideas.
So is Adam a hack web blogger?
A comedy writer?
A serious journalist who hopes to radically change institutional science?
The one theme that binds this motley body of work together is Adam’s passion for looking at old problems from new perspectives.
As Albert Einstein once said, “the mere formulation of a problem is far more essential than its solution, which may be merely a matter of mathematical or experimental skills. To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle requires creative imagination and marks real advances in science.”
