Author Gary Taubes, in The Case Against Sugar, shows you why government diet advisors who have preached calories in -- calories-out as their mantra for half a century are missing the point. Taubes' verdict is that sugar is a drug and the entire world is addicted to it. Telling the public to use sugar in moderation is like telling them to smoke cigarettes in moderation. He traces medical research and reports that have found sugar as the common denominator in obesity, diabetes, heart disease, metabolic syndrome, cancer and even Alzheimers disease. All of the above are symptoms of the same epidemic and it is confounding why sugar isn't singled out as the culprit.
It is a convincing read. If you are concerned about any of the above or just want to understand why you can't lose weight, pick up this book. Stay healthy. You can't go fishing or enjoy the outdoors if you are not.
