Tsunami Of Sugar   1 comment

I thought this article was totally worth reposting.  I found it off of Andrew Weil‘s post on Facebook today.

http://digg.com/newsbar/topnews/why_our_food_is_making_us_fat

The author, from the UK, discusses how food has changed since the 70s and how sugar is in so many things that we don’t even expect.

Look at the information out there on inflammation — it’s on sugar, gluten, etc — not fat as we have been led to believe.

Looking for good information out there?  Check out Integrative Nutrition by Joshua Rosenthal.  He gives a nice critique of “diets” out there.  And he gives some good solid guidelines for eating healthy, rather than a diet.

Also, check out some of the new Paleo or caveman diets. . . I don’t know how much is hype and how much is real . . . they call for getting rid of wheat, dairy, and focuses on high healthy protein — and of course, non-processed foods.  It’s worth a look.

If you are using anything like a Paleo diet to help with disease or weight loss, please post a comment and let us know how you are doing.
