Robert Lustigs' talk pissed me off the other day. I kept having flashbacks to him saying that fructose is basically "ethanol without the buzz." And then I read someone on this site saying, "My personal opinion is that there is no obesity without... (more)
Let me preface this question by saying I'm a huge fan of fruit. I eat a fair amount on a daily basis to no apparent ill effect, and I think fruit has been shown to be healthy and safe. I always see this idea repeated: the fiber in fruit slows the... (more)
Dr. Robert Lustig ("Sugar the Bitter Truth" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM ) was on the Livin'La Vida Lo-Carb show a few days ago and he stated there has been analysis on 50,000 year old human fecal matter that shows hunter gathers... (more)
Perhaps there are some paleo people that have not yet seen Dr. Lustig's 1.5 hour lecture Sugar: The Bitter Truth http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM Grok only had access to fruit in the summer and fall on which it is presumed he gorged to... (more)
I have had a hard time when explaining to new-paleo folks that they need to take it easy on the fruit.. "but fruit is so natural and healthy!" ... it is but there's a caveat! A little anecdote I have come up with is: Look at what we (humans) have... (more)

Not sure I would call Lustig one of the "biggest figureheads in the Paleo movement." Yes, he was at AHS11 and yes, lots of us are intrigued by his research. My guess is his appearance on the CBS series was largely because he was local. That said,... (more)
The topic of the first hour of On Point this morning is sugar and its prevalence in the SAD. Dr. Lustig is one of the panelists, and is putting out good points and numbers about sugar and making recommendations as to what should be done. Do you... (more)
I went looking for more videos after seeing the Taubes/Gueyenet smackdown and found that videos have been posted. http://vimeo.com/ancestralhealthsymposium What do you think of these? Enjoy! edit: Videos are single camera on speaker, but... (more)
Lalonde's speech was humbling. But I have a serious concern: does he have black eyes?
