We live in a society where our stores are filled with sugary, processed foods. Turn on the TV or leaf through a magazine to be bombarded by ads urging you to head to the nearest fast food drive-through or buy a box of the newest high-fat, high-sugar processed food. With obesity and related conditions ranging from diabetes to heart disease soaring in our nation, the odds of beating those temptations and problems seem low. Challenging those odds is Robert H. Lustig, M.D., author of "Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease."
Dr. Lustig explains how to adjust your hormones to control your hunger and feel full. You'll learn to identify problem foods and understand why Dr. Lustig believes that fiber is the "antidote." And you'll discover what Dr. Lustig means when he says that obesity is your body's response to "brain starvation." An expert in childhood obesity and effects of sugar on the metabolism, Dr. Lustig contends that food has "been re-formulated to be an addictive substance." What you'll learn in "Fat Chance:" How to break free of that addiction. Get the book now by clicking here.
