WHY FRUIT AND SUGAR MAKE YOU FAT

I remember watching Dr Robert Lustig give a talk some time ago about the evils of sugar and importantly fruit in your diet.

The part that struck me as ironic was that Dr Lustig has a BMI that is borderline obese while the whole food vegans in his audience who all eat a LOT of fruit all had BMI’s at the light end of the normal weight range.

So why is it that a fat Dr Lustig is telling lean vegans that their fruit focused nutrition plan will make them fat.

It’s time for a closer look.
