I realize it’s a big challenge. Sugar is in everything. Especially “low-fat” processed foods. If you’re going to succeed in cutting it out, you’ll need sufficient motivation.
Investigative science and health journalist Gary Taubes, another of my guides, continues the prosecution in the video below with The Case Against Sugar, a summary and introduction to his book by the same name. It’s well worth your time:
See also Taubes’ talk from the same conference on The Quality of Calories: Competing paradigms of obesity pathogenesis.
Excessive carbohydrates are a problem in our diet generally, but sugar is an extra specially bad type of carb, for the reasons Dr. Lustig and Taubes outline.
You may be surprised, as I was, to find how much sugar is in food and drink you consider “healthy.”
More on that next time.
