What has happened? Why have we gotten fatter? What should we be doing about it?
For decades the medical profession has recommended that we reduce our fat intake. We have. We lowered our fat intake from 40 percent to 30 percent of total calories. Why then have obesity, and the diabetes that often accompanies it, become so prevalent? It appears that the advice that doctors gave, and in most cases are still giving, was wrong.The main culprit is not fat, but excess sugar. We made the huge mistake of swapping sugar for fat. We doubled our fructose consumption and we have reaped a whirlwind.
The sad truth is that conventional ideas — eat less, run more — do not work long term. Counting calories, exercising for hours every day and trying to ignore your hunger? That’s needless suffering and it wastes your time and precious willpower. However there’s a better way. There is no magic pills or potions involved.
