Holistic Nutritionists have been saying for years that fat is NOT the culprit when it comes to obesity. It’s also not the major player in heart disease that most people believe.
The old concepts of calories in vs. calories out for weight loss is something I’ve been de-bunking with my clients for years. Now I’ve got some heavy weight back-up.
If you want to know the truth about what is at the root of our obesity epidemic, especially with our children then take the time to watch this recording taken at the University of California, San Franciso’s Mini Medical School. Here Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.
This is where it’s at folks.
