Robert H Lustig hammers home the truth about sugar, the political foot-dragging on the subject and how for big business sugar equals money. After finding out what harm sugar is doing to us, few people will want to carry on without revising their diet. Fads and special diet food won’t help, it’s not all about exercise – it’s sugar that is behind the obesity epidemic says Robert H Lustig.

Synopsis

Fat Chance The Bitter Truth About Sugar by Robert H. Lustig

Sugar is toxic, addictive and everywhere. So what chance do you have of living sugar-free? We all know the obvious culprits when it comes to sugar, but now Dr Robert Lustig reveals how much is hidden in our diet. Our dependence on sugar-laden processed foods has manifested in shocking levels of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer and heart disease. 'Fat Chance' exposes the political and business interests behind our modern diet, and shows why exercise and the latest food fads won't work for everyone who wants to get fitter. The real key to regulating our hunger is to understand why every calorie is different. Cutting out sugar is not just about making us thin - it's about giving us more than a fat chance of a healthier, happier and smarter life!
