Is Sugar Toxic? 60 Minutes Exclusive

By June 22, 2012 3 Comments

In this 60 minutes interview that aired recently, Sanjay Gupta investigates what is causing the obesity and disease epidemic of the past century.  For those of you who are avid readers of this blog, none of this information will come as a surprise to you… It is what I have been so passionately sharing for close to a decade.  It is great to have something that people believe to be credible (60 minutes and Sanjay) backing this up and making it known to the world.

Check out the video

Some days I feel like I am hitting my head against the wall, swimming upstream, trying to get people to “get” this to the point where they make lasting changes.  I don’t get why it is so hard to change until I am reminded that sugar is as addictive as cocaine for some.  For many it is not enough for people to stop excessive sugar consuption despite the fact they know it will most likely take many years off of their life.

I believe the plan ahead for us is simple…

Less Sugar (this is a powerful link)

-More non starchy veggies

More healthy fats

-More unprocessed natural sources of protein

-No soda, coffee (that has added sugar), sports drinks, or any other sugary beverage

-No Soda or diet soda (yes I repeated it for emphasis, but click this link, different then the above one)

-Less grains

-More water

-More strength training

-More burst training

-More sleep

-More smiling and fun

If we ALL did this, just think about how different the world would be.

Our health care system would go from the brink of self destruction, to a place that dealt more with injuries rather than disease.  Our economy would pick up because less people would be sick, so they could work more, less disability insurance, less spent on drugs, and less spent on health care.  We would have more energy to do the things that we love to do and would be proactive with our bodies and health instead of being reactive.

Now it is your turn.  What do you think about this video and my remarks?  I know I am taking a strong stand the will upset some people, but that doesn’t bother me.  When I believe something to be the truth, based on all the information I currently have, and it involves your well-being and health, you can be sure that I will speak my mind and give you all I have.  Love you all!  Dustin
