You are WHAT YOU DO with what you eat…

In this video Robert H. Lustig, M.D., UCSF (University of California, San Francisco) Professor of pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism attacks FRUCTOSE .

He goes on to discuss the problems with the calorie in/calorie out macronutrient model.  Leptin is on the discussion plate, carbohydrates and fat intake.

Dr. Lustig gets a little heavy into the biochemistry that is going on in the body, stuff I love!  But if it’s not your bag of tea (you can go to this less informing video link of Dr. Vincent Bellonzi).  If you can stick to watching it as there’s some very important information.  Once we come out of the biochemistry portion, he mentions the Palaeolithic diet and its correlation with the curing of diabetes type II.  He even goes as far to give us a list of the only seven things at McDonald’s that do not have high-fructose corn syrup (not that all these items are good for you):
  1. French fries
  2. Hash browns
  3. Chicken McNuggets (no dipping sauce)
  4. Sausage
  5. Diet Coke
  6. Coffee (no sugar)
  7. Iced Tea (no sugar)
The following link is the collaboration that was co-written by Robert H. Lustig.  Remember that although sugar in juice isn’t brought up, their still just as bad:

  1. He was angry that fructose was not once mentioned in full lecture and said AHA was not given enough credit 3:36

    The American Heart Association now recommends that you keep added sugars to less than 5% of your calorie intake. That’s about 25 grams or 6 teaspoons per day for an average-sized adult.

    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.
