    Sugar: a poison

    I just finished watching this video. It's created by CBC (Canadian Broadcasting Company). Being on this site, you probably already know most of it, but there are some facts that may be new to you. The part about Ludkin and its fallout pissed me off. It didn't surprise me, but it pissed me off nonetheless.

    So true. I couldn't help but think "That's your average American" as I watched it.

    I decided to watch this video because I've been carb cycling -- and cut back a lot in general -- and I've noticed that I'm feeling even sharper than usual. I also, counterintuitively, feel more energetic. At least, after the first week or two. Not to mention that the fat just evaporated. Just like in that video. I'm not going to cut out sugar completely -- I have a killer peanut satay recipe that requires it -- but it's dropped to low single digits in my diet. Upwards or 85% of all that I eat is from basic foods now.

    I'll have to peep this tomorrow. I think where a lot of people miss the boat is that we need glucose, but we are designed to make it, not consume it in mass quantities.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    You'll like the video then. It's talks about glucose quite a bit, and the overconsumption of it by Americans.

    It's funny that you mention ice cream.

    I'm branching here. This video is on food addiction. It's not that they're trying to make better tasting food, they're using science to manipulate the mind of the buyer. They're leveraging how the body works to overcome your logical thinking. And stuff like replacing cheese with proteins and fats.



    On a side note, the close-ups of people eating with their mouth open is revolting.

    This video is by CBS and ties into the first. It expounds on several points. One of the things it covers is the addictive nature of sugar using a real-time MRI.

    Great thread good pieces.

    I'm passing these on....
    It's an accurate statement that our current spending will not be increasing the debt We've stopped spending money that we don't have.

    Just watched it, interesting. I think Lustig is off and hate the fact that everyone tries to pin the obesity epidemic down to a single cause. Even if you remove sugar from the food supply, sitting all day still has a negative impact on the body by increasing inflammation, oxidative stress, and blood glucose levels. All 3 of these factors increase your risk for the metabolic syndrome. There are also other dietary factors that correlate with the obesity epidemic which likely have an effect and that make sense from an evolutionary standpoint, particularly fiber consumption which they ignore. Finally, you know we're in trouble when a "knowledgeable" authority on nutrition has people eating pasta as part of a diet devoid of processed food, I guess I have just never been fortunate enough to see a spaghetti bush.

    I recommend a Paleo diet, but not the Paleo diet that most implement as it's just a meat/protein orgy. High fiber, moderate carb(200g or so), a larger diversity of plant matter and properly raised animals. I eat about 30 different vegetables per week and maybe 3 types of fruit. That's all you need to do to be healthy. It doesn't even take that much time to prepare. I spend an hour making breakfast which also makes enough for lunch and my wife makes dinner. If I wanted to streamline the process I would chop everything on Sunday and freeze it, but I prefer it fresh.
    If sense were common, everyone would have it.

    No one has said that sugar is the only reason, just that it's a major, ubiquitous, reason. The issue is also the steps that companies have taken to subvert the systems put in place to protect consumers.

    I've never looked into the Paleo diet (or much of any diet, actually), but I can guess what it is. I'm pretty sure that's how I eat. I eat meat / protein all day long. I don't worry about the fat content at all. I just keep a caloric ceiling each day. I do also eat veggies and occasionally fruit (mango being a favorite). I have great results with it.

    Sounds like you are basically Paleo, Paleo is grain, legume, and dairy free. Most people use it as an excuse to eat as much meat as possible and ignore veggies, which is a mistake. Just avoid processed food and eat a moderate amount of meat, that's likely the healthiest way to do it and most beneficial to your gut and overall health.
