This week we welcome Dr. Robert Lustig. Robert is a Professor of Pediatric Endocrinology at the University of California, San Francisco. Dr. Lustig has become a leading public health authority on the impact sugar has on fueling diabetes, obesity, and metabolic syndrome epidemics, and on addressing changes in the food environment to reverse these chronic diseases. In this episode, we discuss the difference between glucose and fructose, understanding the different fat depots in the body and the roles they may play in disease, and the eight modern diseases that aren’t actually a disease. We also dive into the modern myth that a calorie is a calorie, and how the food industry used convenience to control you. Join The Better! Community On Facebook. Get the show notes here.
