    I lost 60 pounds in 6 months and have kept it off for 1 year now. I stopped eating white bread, white rice, sugar, soda, high fructose corn syrup, all bagged snacks, all food from packages, ketchup, candy, all FAST FOOD RESTAURANTS, all fried foods, all processed food, fruit drinks, and more; I ate plain greek yogurt, all kinds of fruits and vegetables, WHOLE WHEAT bread, lots of FIBER, cottage cheese, all kinds of NUTS, avocados, nutrition bars with all natural ingredients, BLACK TEA, coffee, ALL KINDS OF BEANS, overnight oats, chia seeds, flax seeds, dark chocolate, cocoa powder on yogurt, small salads with a tbsp of dressing, OATMEAL, all bran cereal, and more healthy foods. I did not exercise. YOU CAN TOO. IF YOU KEEP HEALTHY FOOD IN YOUR FRIDGE YOU'LL EAT HEALTHY FOOD and IF IT CAME FROM A PLANT EAT IT; IF IT WAS MADE IN A PLANT DON'T EAT IT. If you can't pronounce an ingredient don't eat that item.

    Thank you for what you said about obesity. I am 66 and just went to the doctor for a checkup for the first time in decades. I spend 6 hours a week at the gym and eat almost no sugar or refined carbs but lots of fiber and greens. All my test numbers were beautiful.The doctor told me I was borderline clinically obese, according to the BMI score, but said I looked fine and there was nothing to worry about. The thing is, she asked NOTHING about my diet and was not particularly interested when I tried to talk about it, nor in how someone can be clinically obese (and in their seventh decade of life) and yet healthy. (In my 20s I was a sugar addict and about 100 lbs overweight, but I turned that around by giving up sugar And I feel much better now than I did in my 20s as a sugar addict.) It seems that the medical profession is all about taking tests and then trying to match up the test numbers with prescriptions, not about telling you how to actually be healthy. I think that most people probably depend on their doctors to tell them what to do, and figure if they doctor doesn't tell them about something, it can't be important. It's great that there are resources like this for people to educate themselves, but I think that the trend will not change until doctors start learning about this.

    Government is complicit in this, by subsidies to commodity farmers (sugar, corn and other crappy seed oil producing crops). This makes junk food cheap, and good food much more expensive. Subsidize vegetables!

  • Reply jaksap December 24, 2018 at 12:25 am

    Very interesting presentation with a lot of aha moments. The conclusions are adulterated with introduction of climate change and firearms arguments. Yes, too much fructose can harm us, as well as too much alcohol. Government intervention won't work (see drugs and tobacco). The problem is in abundance of affordable, tasty, and high-caloric foods, which are omnipresent and somewhat addictive. That is a recent indulgence the humanity can "enjoy". If the public opinion presses big food industry on fructose, they will replace it with other sweeteners. At the end of the day, the individuals should make informed choices of what and how much they eat.

  • Reply Phil Moore February 7, 2019 at 2:42 am

    This video only tells part of the story. They never mention that the food industry creates products to have a long shelf life, and that the preservatives in foods are not recognized by our body, so they get stored as fat. Once we get sick then we are sucked into the medical system. Though well meaning it never cures us; it just manages our illness. One ill, one pill. Functional medicine is the new up and coming discipline that seeks out the real cause of disease. You just can’t trust the food industry, big agri, big pharma, nor pill pushers.

    Just after the 1 hour mark he discusses the types of PROOF. The last two being causal reference, and the coup de gras of evidence being of course SCIENTIFIC PROOF (controlled studies, et al).

    He goes on to explain why we cant do scientific studies on causation of diabetes because it takes 50ish years to develope. You cant control someones diet for that length of time, or be sure they didnt do something else to cause it. And of course it would be unethical to do a study that were to cause diabetes.

    I offer this. How about the opposite? Doing something that reverses diabetes? Such as removing factors that are believed to cause diabetes, and see how that effects diabetes? THIS I HAVE DONE!

    I have cured (completely reversed my type 2 diabetes) but eating ZERO CARBS. Actually a low carb high fat diet. Keeping my carb intake low enough that carbohydrates cant be measured. Basically less than 1 gram a day.

    On 29 Aug 2017 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. A Blood Glucose (BG) level of 594. An HbA1c of 11.7%. After six weeks of following the American Diabetes Assoc. suggested diet of about 180 grams of carbs a day, I was showing nearly no improvement. My BG was between 150 and 300 everyday, at random times. I was measuring my BG levels about every 2 hours. I was terrified.

    I researched diabetes myself, did the troubleshooting (Troubleshooting being what I do) and made the decision to go Low Carb High Fat. Also known as the Keto Diet. I put my body into a state of nutritional ketosis. I no longer use glucose for fuel, but fat instead.

    In two weeks time I went from 245 pounds to 205 pounds. Yep, 14 days and 40 pounds. Indeed, this was all "water weight", that being 40 pounds of glycogen stores being spent as I wasnt getting sugar from my diet anymore. BUT THATS STILL 40 POUNDS I WAS NO LONGER CARRYING AROUND. My BG has consistently been in the normal range ever since ranging from 58 to 130, but most days consistently in the mid 80's. FYI: a BG level of 58 would have put me in the hospital if I wasnt in ketosis. Seeing as I now burn fat for energy instead of sugar, I can have BG levels in the hypo range and not suffer the effects of hypoglycemia.

    After about another 2 months of eating Zero Carb, my HbA1c was down to 5.7%. A few months after that down to 5.6%. THATS OFFICIALLY NON DIABETIC. Seeing as 'pre-diabetes' is a HbA1c of 5.7% or higher, I took my health back to a normal state… WITHOUT meds, or exercise, or following the ADA guidelines. In my opinion, the ADA is aware of this, but doesnt want healthy diabetics, just live diabetics. Alive enough to continue taking meds. Just look at the data and follow the $.

    So by simply removing sugar from the equation, There's your scientific proof. Sure, an n=1, but there are plenty more of us out there to raise that n=1 to n=10,000 or more, all following a Low Carb High Fat diet, or should I say, way of eating. I've been eating this way over a year, and will not be returning to the SAD diet. EVER. (SAD=Standard American Diet).

    He said: If your leptin worked right all the time, you could never gain weight. Thats is wrong people will gain weight If they eat more callories than they need for a day, its just energy balance, If leptin works fine in your system doesnt mean that you will eat lets say 2000 calories with no problems just because the leptin will give you the signal to stop eating, people usually dont count callories and even If they do its really a problem to count them right

    Anyone interested in Paleo or similar type non-manufactured food diets, should really check out the numerous videos available on UCTV and CARTA where anthropologists and biologists really get into the hard science of what early man and other hominids actually ate. I'm not knocking Paleo at all, that's probably the closest thing to what I eat. But "no grains", for example? Scientists can PROVE that early homo ate seeds, and things like archaic wheat are simply the seeds of grasses. Same with legumes. Chimps eat them now, and our ancestors likely did. Honey as well.
    I totally, totally agree…… no factory food, no added sugars, all that stuff. For me, if it needs to have a nutrition label, it's no go. But take it easy on yourself with things. The overriding lesson from the above videos was that humans developed to eat a wide, wide range of things.

    LOL, this rant kind of came about when I read someone say how they do "Keto, Paleo with supplements". Huh? If you need supplements, you sure as heck aren't eating a natural diet. By definition.

In the weeks leading up to the extermination we noticed something strange. Roaches will eat any speck of anything you accidentally drop on the counter, even stuff you didn't know was there, or that isn't classified as "food," but if you leave a bowl full of sugar, or any sugar out, they won't touch it, they won't even go near it, like it's radioactive or something…even the roaches won't eat sugar…just think about that for a sec *roaches treat sugar like it's poison*…

    The medical establishment believes it can cure disease by pinpointing a metabolic pathway and then just manipulate that single step with a drug found to influence that little step in experiments with animals and people. The problem with that is that all metabolic reactions influence each other in a cascade fashion, so manipulating just a step and focusing on just negating symptoms doesn't solve anything. Some other reaction will just compensate for the change caused by the drug. That is why prescribed drugs tend to increase in concentration when someone takes them for a long period of time. The body compensates for their effect, causing a higher dose to be needed to get the same symptomatic change.

    Taking drugs to negate symptoms is just covering the problem and leaving it to fester and grow.

    Everything begins with the diet and fasting on a regular basis.

    1:18:18 Every diet that works is low sugar, high fiber because every diet that works is real food.

    Fun fact: 78kg body weight at 8% body fat, daily fiber consumption of 75 grams that I get from real food, just like the man says, it has been 1 year and 3 months since I changed my lifestyle and since I've gone from 100kg to 78kg and, if before all of this, you would have told me that I would switch to a 95% vegetarian diet AND be lean naturally, I would have called you stupid, now if you were to ask me what the secret is behind all of this?

    Is it the protein? Nope
    Is it the carbs? Nope
    Is it the fiber? A deliberate YES, absolutely, there is nothing else, I do NOT track my protein or my carbs, I ONLY track my calories and the amount of fiber that I get, which of course can only be counted if you track the consumption of your food, that is all there's to it, will this make you muscular like Superman? No, those are genetic markers that you're born with, but what it WILL do is make you THE best version you've ever been and it will allow you to stay that way indefinitely.

    The arrogance of this man is astonishing. He brushes aside scientific facts to focus on sugar without adequately addressing the leading contributors to obesity (which he references: eg fries). He claims obesity from this isn’t detrimental to health after showing the difference between adipose bs visceral fat deposits. He NEVER showed any evidence that sugar deposits fat in areas that fries and non sugar high fat foods do not. I get what he’s saying, but massively flawed methodology. He demonstrates this when referring to global warming / climate change, false analogy.

    I’m sorry is it just me.. 19:20 he talks about how exercise doesn’t effect weight loss/weight gain. However, around 35 mins he’s talking about insulin stops you wanting to exercise and makes you gain weight. Contradictions my friend. So much exaggerations and fantasy statistics. Just hurts my brain. We get it, processed sugar is bad for you. Like everything else that is processed.

    High Fructose 2.0 – not Fructose 2.0 , I wish you would change the title, very misleading !? Fructose is a 16 on the glycemic scale, you are speaking of processed sugars, and products here, where HFCS is 65, and Sucrose is 65 plus on the glycemic scale compared to pure unprocessed, unpasteurized Fructose . I am not a true Frugivore, but changing my eating habits to more fruit, berries, and melons has improved all my numbers on my lab tests,and I have lost weight. I just wanted to say for the record, I think the title is misleading! If I eat only fruit,berries, and melons for 2 days ,my fasting blood sugar drops from 103 to 80’s or low 90’s. Fructose is not Glucose, except for the carbs in it that can be converted to glucose and then measured by a blood glucose meter.

    Lets not forget "healthy whole grains". It's just as bad as (even worse with it's foreign proteins that cause inflammation) insulin spiking, triglycerides spiking, liver fattening garbage right hand in hand with sugar.

    Political Islam is a public safety issue. Banning guns/taking away the means of self protection is not a good idea.. Lab created food is not food – lab created meat is not meat. Chemical additives are not food. I want to see in writing, Dr. Lustig's complete diet for one month – breakfast, lunch, supper, snacks and beverages. Give us a model to follow with recipes.

    There is a video on YouTube where a guy
    Eats 12 bananas a day for many years
    And is skinny as can be.

    No once cells damaged cannot be healed n cannot produce insulin. Carbs are imp n required by body but how much

    Came to this video thanks to my fructose intolerance issues stemming from SIBO. Super informative and helpful in understanding how weight is processed. I was on the cusp of being overweight at 138 pounds but once I went on a restricted diet, I had gone to 107 pounds within half a year. Now it's the total opposite. I'm on the cusp of being underweight but still at a healthy weight. I wonder if I'm using the food I eat completely now and my body is not storing it as fat anymore because there is no excess of sugars. I would like to gain more weight but finding anything without inflammatory additives or sugars is extremely frustrating still. :/

    This was an excellent talk I thoroughly enjoyed it exposed the food industry and the lack of protection from government agencies.

    I however disagreed with last statements about the education i;e that it does not help and the only way forward was basically a state intervention. I think education is key to inform the public including politicians to make the right choices. (Knowledge is power ignorance is bliss) I do agree that the governments need to protect and label products properly and should be more proactive and this goes for pesticide and waste management issues that we have a crisis in. The food production (the source) and post food (waste management crisis) i.e plastic.

    The choice I believe should still be in the hands of the people and prohibition as seen in the past with alcohol proved to be futile. I also believe it can lead to worse things as seen in Muslim countries who ban alcohol but then they find their soft drink consumption/diabetes goes sky rocketing up . There will be people who choose not to abide by good health choices as in addicted smokers for example, but the vast majority given the education and explanations I think will want to be healthier /live longer/ survive. The outcome for this are unquestionably dire with health systems already overwhelmed and not coping this with an aging population etc.

    The other option is to increase taxes as in many people give up smoking or smoke less due to the cost. As for global warming briefly mentioned this is not a crisis at all, this is propaganda and you can track it back to the late 80's when it was introduced by politicians like Margaret Thatcher and who started the funded the IPCC to find a correlation between CO2 and Climate. Politicians funding a campaign ( paying scientists to prove something is not good as seen in the tobacco industry). Al Gore with his now widely accepted false movies on ice core records saying that CO2 caused the warming when the correlation is the warming via the sun 's cycles increased the CO2 from the oceans and the biological increase of CO2. For the corrupted data on global warming exposed search Tony Heller. and 1000 frolly PHD to explain the real science behind any climate change that is happening now or in the past. Or the doco on youtube The Great Global Warming Swindle.

    1. We have a waste management crisis – plastics – rubbish – over consumption. – Health problems – from air respiratory – consuming plastic via the fish micro plastics etc – endocrine disruptors

    2. We have healthy food production crisis – Including over use of fertilisers – over use of pesticide – GMO foods and seed production – Controlled by the big chemical companies – Health problems are numerous.
    3. We have a nutrition crisis and over consumption of Sucrose/Sugars as outlined by these videos – Causing cancers /diabetes /heart etc Controlled by big business Food manufacturers .

    4. We have a looming population crisis we need to discuss and educate on.

    1:00:17 – "Then there's anecdotal evidence, which of course is absolute garbage because you can't do anything with that because N=1 is NOTHING…" Hmm….tell that to David Feldman, of N=1, a low-carb rockstar, who is uncovering significant information using himself as the sole participant in ongoing longitudinal studies.
