Australia’s ABC network has produced an excellent 18 minute segment on sugar, low carb, insulin and obesity with contributions from Professor Robert Lustig and Gary Taubes. Highly recommended and perfect for sharing…

A lot of ground is covered including:

  • the problems caused by demonisation of fat and its replacement with sugar
  • why refined carbohydrates lead to obesity
  • the problems with fruit juice
  • how fat consumption has remained steady while sugar consumption (and obesity) have rocketed
  • the role of insulin
  • why calories in/calories out is flawed (and got us into this mess)
  • the dangers of processed foods
  • why getting off sugar makes people more enegertic
