Maybe I am just the future sugar equivalent of the 90 year old who smoked his entire life... I have been a life long sugar junkie and 2 Liter soda drinker (though I have about kicked soda habit). Never had any weight gain from sugar, (though carbs so are trying). BP fine, and no teeth problems... But I do have one quirk. I love candy daily, but cant stand sugar film on teeth so they get a good brushing shortly after consuming.

Robert Lustig is the doctor in Sugar Coated. I think he makes good points, but consuming too much sugar isn't the only bugaboo, which he tries to make evident.

92% of our calories comes from highly processed foods including meat dairy and cheese. Only 8% is whole unprocessed fruits, vegetables, foods grown from the earth. So we're not only sugar addicted, we're short on fiber, foods high in water, grown in the sun, nutritious and minimally processed.

But we've all been sold a bill of goods and believe eating carbs are bad, and meat/dairy/cheese and oils are healthy. With that way of thinking, there's no chance the US obesity rates have any chance of reversing.

Isn't this statement completely opposite of what would have been written 10-15 years ago? It's become clear to me that if there's one truth out there, it's that nobody knows nuttin', nohow.
