Oh yes. "Sugar, the bitter truth" was a game changer for me. I've built on that this year by changing my diet to a Paleo style which limits grains, processed foods, and sugars. But watching that video started it off for me.

OMG - that was interesting!!!! It would be interesting to hear the differences in metabolism of fructose and sucralose.

Very interesting. I'm looking forward to watching more of the UCSF Medical Mini School.

The more I education myself, the more I realize that I can NEVER go back. I was killing myself...

The bit at the very beginning about the Japanese diet and the Atkins diet comparrison was interesting to me... I always wondered why my Japanese students managed to stay so slim when they were eating large quantities of rice for most of their meals!

Yeah he seems to believe rice and pasta are ok. I don't know about that because if it is just about fructose then I already rarely consume it (except in fruit). It has been a long time since biochem so I will have to watch the video again sometime to check the logic. I mean, any form of sugar can get converted to glucose and then be metabolized by the body... Anyways, I don't really eat much fructose but I get PlENTY of glucose and I might try whole 30 just to see how my body responds

So, the video is basically saying that the whole weight gain is fructose, not carbs or fat?




?

For me- the video is basically telling me to stop eating "foodstuff" (or food like substances)/processed/packaged foods and start eating food provided from the earth. Cooking is a lost art- I was never taught how to do it, really. So it's been quite a lot of work, but I'm glad I'm making these habits now before I have children.

Stars, He is saying that about 30% of fructose is metabolized into fat. No other part of the body can use fructose, unlike glucose. It has to processed in the liver, therefore he hypothesizes that fructose really is a poison of sorts.

I agree... and interestingly, I have been saying that for years and now they are proving it! (Unfortunately, I have not been doing it for years, which is why I look like I do!! But I've been eating almost all organic, non-processed foods for about six months now and the change in me is incredible! I don't want to go back to my old ways and pray I always remember this and never fall back into my old habits!

Michael Pollan's videos and books have been very helpful to me as well.

thanks for this link, loved it. Am interested in metabolism of sucralose after this.

Hey -- some of us were BORN fat! I was over ten pounds at birth, and both my parents were of average size.

On a serious note, though, it was a good video and I plan to watch it a second time. It's amazing how invasive sugar -- in all its forms -- is in our diets. I know I'm going to be more aware of it when preparing my own meals.
