Common Journey
(Continued from Mad as Hell) Fast-forward 35 years. Through countless episodes of yo-yo dieting, I managed to go from a reasonably healthy 125 pounds on a 5’3″ frame to nearly 200. Now, I’m not stupid. I researched as much as possible before starting on any diet. But my research was based on changing trends in what […]

I’m Mad as Hell
(with apologies to Network, the movie) I’m the mother of four adult children. Until I got pregnant with my first child, I was a healthy woman whose weight seldom fluctuated. I considered my diet to be healthy, as I followed the guidelines periodically published by the FDA. What I didn’t know then and didn’t learn […]

The Culprit Identified
If you were alive in the mid-twentieth century, you probably always heard the word diabetes as part of a phrase – sugar diabetes. At that time, the cause of Type II diabetes (as it came to be called) was thought to be consuming an excess amount of sugar. In fact, that was partially correct. Consuming […]

In an earlier blog post, I mentioned that food industry labels use many different names for sugar. The intent appears to be a) avoiding the generic label ‘sugar’ as the first ingredient by breaking up the different types of sugar, and b) misleading those who don’t know all those different names mean sugar. However, there’s […]

The Type II Diabetes Spectrum, Part II
Dr. Jason Fung, in his book The Obesity Code, suggests that the medical profession, the diet industry, and indeed the US Government, have been guilty of doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. The classic advice for both diabetes and weight loss is eat less, move more. While some doctors […]

The Type II Diabetes Spectrum, Part I
To understand how to reverse diabetes, we must first understand how it happens. In this case, we must distinguish between Type I diabetes (or ‘true’ diabetes), and Type II. A bit of history: what we now know as Type II diabetes has been known by other names for centuries, and was previously successfully treated by […]

The Truth about Fat
If you have read my posts about how Big Sugar lied and turned the blame for lifestyle diseases on fat, you now know that much of what you’ve heard about fat since the 1960s was at best poorly researched, and at worst, a flat-out lie, designed to induce you to consume more sugar. If you’re […]

How the Sugar Industry Demonized Fat

How the Sugar Industry Demonized Fat
  A recently published report blew the lid off the sugar industries (successful) conspiracy to switch the blame on obesity and health problems solely on the shoulders of fat.  During the 1960s they went on the offensive, using every dirty tool in the book, Big Tobacco’s book, to be exact.  Paying off scientists, fudging statistics, […]
