New Book! Fat Chance

Yesterday on NPR's Science Friday, Ira Flatow spoke with Dr. Robert Lustig about his just-released Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease. In the book, Dr. Lustig, endocrinologist and obesity specialist, deconstructs the mythology of fat. He says exercise, though one of the best things you can do for your body, won't help you shed pounds—and that fasting only worsens weight gain. So what does he say is the answer? Find out in the audio stream below ... [hint, he talks a lot about fiber, lowering your sugar intake, and eating foods without labels]

The book is currently listed on Amazon for $14.97 ... mine is in the mail!

Thanks for posting this. I want to see if I can get this book at my local library if not I added to my wish list of books :)

I agree with Dr. Lustig because I lost 26 pounds in a year after I cut out soda and fruit juice from my diet and I also began walking regularly and started eating more whole foods so this to me makes a lot of sense. Today if I want fruit juice I cut it with seltzer.

Have a beautiful day!

Wait, is Lustig the guy that did the infamous sugar video? Please let me know - if so, I'm ordering his book now!!

Thanks for the audio. It was mostly common sense but what was most interesting was his scientific explanations of why things were good or bad.
