Watch "The Skinny on Obesity" with Dr. Lustig: http://www.uctv.tv/skinny-on-obesity
Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology, explores the damage caused by sugary foods. He argues that fructose (too much) and fiber (not enough) appear to be cornerstones of the obesity epidemic through their effects on insulin.

Thank you to Centar dr Gifing for providing the Serbian subtitles for Sugar the Bitter Truth. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC8cXfUiAey9wzYg3K_eR_zg
Great speaker. He should go and open the next big rheumatology conference, and tell the gout specialists to get their act together. They are still pushing a diet where the most recommended foods are cereals without fibre, jam, sugary soft drinks, and sweets!
Wow powerful stuff, makes you look at food in a completely different light. Despite the complexity of the metabolic process that is discribed in the lecture, they did a great job in breaking it down and making it understandable for everyone. I will definetly take a closer look at what i buy in the stores from now on and i think one of the key messages is to make a effort to introduce more fiber to your diet. Fiber meight be the thing that makes limited fructose consumption acceptable, because i regard it as pretty much impossible to completely avoid consuming fructose, since it's in pretty much everything.
It's ridiculous to demonise sugar. We never had such high rates of obesity in the past. But, as kids, we used to go out to play. We didn't just sit on our arses, on facebook, &twitter, & instagram & snapchat & whatever the hell else banal, so called social media. Or just playing computer & console games. I am 6 feet tall & weigh just over 70 kilos. I was 60 kilos until a year or so ago. (I'm aged 55).
I NEVER drink water. It just makes your mouth like blotting paper. I drink 5-8 cups of coffee a day. Each has at least 4 heaped teaspoons of sugar in. Apart from that, I only drink sodas, all full fat. Mostly regular coke. I put sugar on all sweet things. Frosties. In premade, already sweetened custard. I also eat bags of sweets, candy in American language. I'm not overweight. The above has been my diet, all through my adult life. I don't have diabetes, or heart disease. Why should my diet have to change, because a bunch of lazy, fat kids won't get off their arses and actually do some real living. Not the virtual bullshit they are all addicted to?
don't bother to go to sweetsurprise.com... i guess the industry saw this coming and deleted the site. i tried to stop eating sugar about 2 months ago... had to settle on <8-10 gm/ day or i think i would starve. 95% of everything in the store i go to has added sugar. by the way, since i started... without changing how much i exercise, i've not only dropped 7 lbs (starting BMI at about the center of overweight), but i find i am not hungry most of the day. i now have a light breakfast and eat one more time around 4pm. btw, the mentioned book Pure, White and Deadly is online (pdf), just Google it.
15:12 presenting results of meta-analyses (yes, plural) and mentioning "statistically significant associations" - these are extremely low correlation coefficients, realistically contributing to 3-4% of the overall effect. Plus, including cross-sectional studies is not a good idea at all - you cannot conclude whether obese people tend to drink more pop or those who drink more pop tend to be obese.
PS. I'm totally pro keto, just pointing out that this kind of "science" is doing more harm than good.
Thank you Dr for the best ever presentation , every word is true,I am from India ,diabetes capital of the world,
I don’t know how we are going to control this epidemic,Govt and people are totally ignorant about sugar poisoning of
The entire Indian population,we are consuming most toxic recipes in our daily diets.
Great lecture, but please stop calling everything and everyone "guy". When females have to hear everything male-genderized, we are psychologically left at disadvantage because femaleness is left out of the life question altogether. Neutrality is preferred. People think this is unimportant, but it creates consciousness, which creates the world we live in, which is a male-created hellhole at the moment. It matters. Also I do not expect to hear "God/He" referred to in a science talk. No "god" made anything.
This is not epically new, however it is science based, and I for one, have been on low carb, diet, and my blood sugars are finally in the normal range after ridding my diet of sugar, and un healthy carbs.
You may well have saved my life. Been responsible of lengthening the lives of my friends, family and children. In a few years, hopefully we’ll be looking back on this video with the same bemused expression we have when looking at past anti-smoking videos.
Um maple syrup, agave, honey, and even stevia spike your insulin. The first 3 are practically pure sugar. Just get rid of all that stuff and learn to enjoy natural whole foods like fruit. If you want something sweetened crush some grapes or a chunk of watermelon, and mix the whole thing in, fiber and all.
Bloody murder and treason, genocide and infanticide perpetrated by America against its own population en masse for decades and exported as acts of terrorism all over the world. That is what the responsible need to answer for in a Nuremberg like trial. ALL IS POISONED.
I am so grateful for Dr. Lustig going into the detail and depth he has here in this talk. We only have one body and I intend to take care of it, regardless of the push to consume unhealthy, adulterated foods.
Wow thanks for posting UCTV, this brings back memory of 'DIETING MAKES YOU FAT' from the 1980's written by a journalist. Politics of food marketing was all there just like this, which was about WHITE SUGAR.
Its understood you're against processed foods and high sugar diets so how do you propose we change it? Foods outside of that circle are extremely expensive and not bountiful. My grocery stores only offer 5 all natural aisles (including produce) and the other 17+ are a combination of gmo, processed, and frozen slop that sells for a dime a dozen
The point is that the whole system is corrupted to the core with all powerful corporations giving us the cheapest most profitable crap they can legally get away with so they can get suitable returns for the shareholders with no regards to the adverse effects !
"Now we have to get our kids to drink milk anyways somehow"
That's frustrating. That someone would say that. It's just not true. People don't require milk at all. The only important thing about milk is the things we add to it like vitamins and stuff. But the milk on its own is harmful and useless. It's just sad that our society still believes to this day that milk is necessary or important. It's really not.
I have a big issue with the diagrams of the liver.
What's that cell at the bottom, where he shows the TCA cycle happening?
Doesn't the TCA cycle happen in every other cell too?
Why does Acyl-CoA only fuck up when it's made from alcohol and not when it's made from glucose?
I have other questions too, but those ones are the most frustrating to me right now. He should have made that stuff way clearer. I get the his audience is knowledgeable doctors and stuff, but I'm not, and I'm really trying to understand while also doing my best to avoid getting tricked into well-covered lies just because I don't understand metabolization of carbohydrates.
I used to adore grape juice. But after learning about the literal poison of fructose I gave it up, and I've been happier and healthier ever since. Also gave up the other processed foods too. You can still have rare cheat days though.
I cut sugar and processed carbs, no cravings, plenty of energy and dropped 5 pounds a week. Its been three weeks. The first two weeks was a little rough. Sugar detoxification. I feel great. Cut my insulin in half.
You really are highly ignorant. "Whatever that means?" Lol it's called sarcasm you mongoloid. Since you're so easy to manipulate as you just proved once again, I'm going to have sympathy and let you carry on in your ignorant way.
not in whole fruit, there's enough vitamins and fibre to-fructose ratio that they are healthy. But fruit juice strips away a lot of that, and you end up consuming a lot more fructose and no fibre, then that's bad.
Less Sugar = more sweet, it might sound strange but your taste gets used to the amount of Sugar, if you eat less less sweet things will taste more sweet, so you profit twice, health wise and sweet taste wise.
I very much agree with everything he said. I especially liked the biochemistry breakdown of glucose vs fructose. You can really see the effects of eating foods with fructose and how it causes so many chronic diseases. OH, BTW, fructose is in most packaged and fast foods!
