I have told almost every single person that is close to me repeatedly that it is not excess fat consumption that makes us fat, but it is the excess consumption of Sugar. To back up my claim, I often reference a YouTube video of a professor giving a speech at the Harvard Law School Food Society that gives the best argument that Sugar is the culprit in the Western Worlds Obesity Epidemic.
After watching this video, there should be no reason for any reasonable person to believe that Fat is the culprit. So I recommend you watch the video and I will make a list of things you should look out for.
If you do not have the time, I recommend you read this blog posting that goes over the major points of the video, I suggest you visit this page right now as it will change your life:
The person talking in the video, is a personal hero of mine and his name is Robert Lustig, a pediatric endocrinologist at the University of California, San Francisco.
If you don’t have the time to even visit the web page above, just remember these two points from the video:
“Eat less sugar and more fiber”
The Paleolithic and Atkins diets have two things in common, they work and they are “low sugar, high fiber”
Otherwise, the video really is a pleasure to watch, the speaker is very good with his delivery of his analogies and everything, starting with the first one “people don’t choose to be fat” from a real perspective.
