Take 12 minutes to watch a fascinating explanation of the Obesity Epidemic by Dr. Robert Lustig. It’s part 1 of a 7 part series titled “The Skinny on Obesity (Ep. 1): An Epidemic for Every Body.”
Dr. Lustig slams advice given over the last 30 years to reduce fats, and increase carbohydrate & sugar consumption. “That’s what an epidemic or pandemic in this case looks like, that’s what plague, influenza look like”.
“The reason we are in this epidemic can be summed up with one statement, one idea that has become so pervasive that it’s become sacrosanct, that it has become dogma. And that statement is “a calorie is a calorie”. “The reason it doesn’t work is because a calorie is not a calorie“
