I saw this video (see here) over the Christmas holidays and was reminded of it by some of my co-workers. Dr. Robert Lustig, M.D. a pediatrician and expert in pediatric hormone disorders at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) gave this very compelling lecture. You NEED to see it.
Gary Taubes has a good article (see here), worth your time as well on the subject matter. Look at the two graphics on the left and right to see how much sugar and high fructose corn syrup the average person consumes respectively. YIKES!
Now consider what changes you will make in your life. Let me offer a few. First, start consuming Bios Life Slim. Slim reduces the physiological impact of sugars on your body. Two, stop drinking soda! Sodas are the hidden sugar bomb! While in Mexico last month, everywhere I went, I saw people drinking Coca Cola, Sprite, or Fanta. It's no wonder that the number one cause of death in Mexico is diabetes mellitus. Drinking empty calories is a quick way to adding inches to your waistline. More importantly is puts undue strain on your pancreas potentially leading to chronic diseases. Lastly cut out foods made from white flour. This means no white bread, rolls, white rice, doughnuts, pies, cookies, candies, etc...It may seem dramatic but it really isn't and it's very simple to do. Simply switch out the white food with food of color (vegetables, lentils, beans, etc...) Your body needs energy but it also needs vitamins and minerals to function properly. White flour based foods simply provide energy but not the other essential vitamins and minerals your body needs. You are very literally eating empty calories. Now you may experience a withdrawal period (I did) but persevere and plug through it. You will begin to look and feel better with those simple changes.
