In episode 2, Sickeningly Sweet of The Skinny on Obesity, Dr. Robert Lustig tells us that in 1985 we consumed on average 2655 calories per day. In 2010 it was 2866 which is an 8% increase in calories. In 1985 0.62% of us had diabetes, in 2010, the number of people living with diabetes ballooned to 5.13%, a 727% increase! In 1985 we consumed 98 million tons of sugar, in 2010, it was 160 million tons of sugar. If you are struggling with consuming too much sugar, weight loss hypnosis can help you end your addiction to sugar. My Seattle weight loss and Bainbridge Island weight loss clients know that with self hypnosis, you can actually change your taste preferences so that you have a desire for healthy food.
Dr. Lustig illustrates the overabundance of sugar in today’s processed convenience foods and explains how our bodies metabolize these sugars in the same way as alcohol or other toxins, causing damage to the liver and other organs.
A calorie is not a calorie. Sugar is 50 times more potent than calories in explaining diabetes rates world wide. When we started putting fat and carbohydrate on the same plate in the 1700’s we became gourmets. In the 20th century when we started putting fat and carbohydrate in the same food, we became gormons. Sugar is the only food on the planet that is both fat and carbohydrate at the same time. All other real food is either carbohydrate or fat. Sugar is the only food that is both.

We do live in a toxic food environment. Processed foods are toxic and generally contain very little real food. Dr. Lustig says that added sweeteners pose dangers to health that justify controlling them like alcohol. What do you think? I’d love to read your comments in the comment section below.
