Dr. Robert Lustig, anti-sugar advocate & author of Sugar: The Bitter Truth talks about the link between proccessed food, obesity & disease in his new book.
Hurrah to Dr. Mehmet Oz for doing an important episode on the hit Dr. Oz Show, called “The #1 Food Dr Oz Wants Out Of Your House.”
Dr. Oz gets huge applause for warning millions of Americans that eating too much sugar — which most Americans do — puts you at major risk for High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol, Liver Disease and Insulin Resistance.
I’m so excited to have Dr. Oz calling sugar “# 1 on his most wanted list.”
I’ve already watched last week’s segment three times — thank, you TiVo .
Talk about amazing timing! Just as I was working on the chapter in my next book, Beyond Sugar Shock, about groundbreaking research from Dr. Miriam Vos at Emory University — sugar-themed episode airs, and he interviews her!
Dr. Oz was also joined by Dr. Alan Greene, author of Feeding Baby Green.
You can watch The Dr. Oz episode here. (Make sure to see all three parts.)
I also encourage you to watch this video with from Dr. Vos, where she discusses her groundbreaking research, which finds that excess sugar increases your risk for heart disease.

This morning, I received a poignant email, from a woman who — like most of us sugar addicts — has found it hard to let go of sweets.
The sad lady — who I’ll call “K” — labeled her email, ”Connie, You Told Me So!”
Here’s what she writes:
“About a year ago, I purchased your book, Sugar Shock over the internet. Sugar has been a big problem for my entire life. Now, my doctor is angry, because this addiction has progressed, to the beginning of diabetes. Going blind, having my kidneys stop working, dialysis, and having limbs cut off is an ugly scenario. Please, give me some hope to be an overcomer in this. Thanks.”
K, I’m so sorry for your plight. But I congratulate you for finally reaching out and being ready to look at your sugar addiction.
By the way, please take heart. Perhaps that’s what you needed — to plunge to the depths of despair and fear before you took action.
FYI, this has happened with many of my clients. Things had to get really bad before they/we were finally ready to make some positive changes. A similiar thing happened with me. As I revealed in Chapter 1 of Sugar Shock, I was suffering from a whopping 44 ailments before I finally took a doctor’s advice. Pretty sad, eh? But now, because I overcame my sugar addiction, I get to help people like you through programs like Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction in 6 Weeks. Pretty cool, eh?
K, you’re probably a lot stronger than you realize. You can do this! I’m writing to you privately to see how I can help you.
