The battle against the bulge.

Yesterday I listened to an interview with Dr. Lustig where I learned of not only exactly how littered our foods are with fructose, but exactly how the three primary sugars are combined as they are introduced by manufacturing companies. In his book Fat Chance he also discusses the misconception that a calorie is a calorie. I hope to sit down and read this book to delve deeper into the actual science of how our bodies process what we consume. The most favorable sound bite for me in the interview? “If you read the ingredients on it, its not food.”
