Toxic Sugar?

18-minute documentary about the real dietary villain: SUGAR. In only a few decades, there are now more obese people on the planet than there are undernourished. When it comes to getting fat, we've come to believe it's as simple as 'calories in' versus 'calories out' - if you want to shed the kilos, you need to burn more calories than you consume. But not all calories are the same. Some people absorb calories more efficiently and it matters what types of foods your calories are coming from. Sugar is now being proposed by experts as the new dietary villain that's making us fat and sick. Dr Maryanne Demasi investigates the bitter truth about the dangers of a sweet diet. watch the video here.

A follow up to a very popular video by Dr. Robert Lustig, "Sugar: The Bitter Truth." He argues that sugar and processed foods are driving the obesity epidemic, which in turn affects our endocrine system. It's not our fault, it's what the food industry feeds us via agressive marketing. Are the nutrition guidelines ever going to change? Metabolic syndrome and obesity epidemic, fructose, calorie is not a calorie more in this fascinating video! You can watch the video here.

Simply explained: Fat gets stored when you experience insulin spike caused by carbs. This blocks leptin (a hormone that tells you when you had enough food), and makes you more hungry and you eat more. This affects dopamine tolerance (note: dopamine is a neurotransmitter, one of those chemicals that is responsible for transmitting signals in between the neurons of the brain) and makes you feel like you have to eat more. All this again causes more insulin release.
