Viridian Fat Chance - The Hidden Truth About Sugar, Obesity and Disease - Dr Robert Lustig
Sugar is addictive, toxic and our modern diet is packed with it.
Fascinating and topical, Fat Chance, The Hidden Truth About Sugar, Obesity and Disease by Dr Robert Lustig examines how our consumption is responsible for our chronically expanding waistlines, soaring levels of diabetes and a catalogue of diseases.
A world renowned obesity expert, Dr Robert Lustig reveals in this practical self-help guide the truth about our sugar-laden food:
• Why conventional low-fat weight loss advice won’t work: not every calorie is the same, and skipping lunch doesn’t mean it’s ok to eat dessert.
• Why too much sugar can cause serious illness even if you are not overweight.
• How the food industry is filling our diets with hidden sugars – and which foods you must cut out to avoid them.
•How governments are complacent about, and even complicit in, exacerbating our food debacle.
Dr Lustig will radically change the way you see your food and give you more than a fat chance of a healthier, happier and smarter life!
