"Is Sugar Toxic?"

Is Sugar Toxic? (click link to view 60 minutes video)

If you did not watch 60 minutes this past Sunday, please click on the above link and watch the video.  If you did see it, watch it again!

This is something I have been telling people for some time now.  It is not the fat in our diets that are killing us, it is the processed food.  Especially refined SUGAR!

"With the best of intentions they told us to reduce fats in our diet?" -Dr. Sanjay Gupta 

"Exactly... And we did!  And guess what?  Heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and death are skyrocketing."  -Dr. Robert Lustig

Trends in Intake of Energy and Macronutrients --- United States, 1971--2000 (click link to view)

The above link and graph show we have in fact reduced our intake of fat over the past 30 plus years.  Yet, and I feel this is important to repeat, "heart disease, metabolic syndrome, diabetes, and death are skyrocketing." -Dr. Robert Lustig

The question is, what is causing these diseases?  The answer is simple.  Processed foods (anything made by man!) and refined SUGAR!

What do you think of the data above?  Let me know!


After much encouraging from Mike, I cut processed foods and sugar out of my diet about two weeks ago and have already seen changes:weight loss, inc. In energy level, ease falling alseep and staying asleep, have not had headaches, memory has improved, bruises heal quicker, recovery time is shorter after workouts / muscle soreness! I encourage everyone to try to change their diet and cut out sugar and processed foods! You will see a big difference in your overall health and fitness and will feel better!
