Some surprising information on Sugar

Over the course of the last year, I have made a complete lifestyle change when it comes to food.  One of the big differences is the significant reduction in sugar in my diet.  Here are two videos that present a starling look at sugar, and the effects that it has on our bodies when consumed the way it usually is in the diets of Americans today.

The information in these videos supports other things that I have read recently, most notably in the book “Why we get fat and what to do about it”.  This book was instrumental in my re-learning much of what I thought I knew about nutrition.

Many people today could be much healthier if they stopped believing in the conventional wisdom of today, and instead focused on the facts when it comes to their diets.

The first was aired on CBS News recently.  The second, is referenced in the CBS News video.
