Here are some resources for you to look through and learn more about sugar and why it’s not so great for us:
Firstly, I recommend this video of a lecture given by Dr Robert Lustig. Dr Lustig is a paediatric endocrinologist at the University of California. The video is almost 90 minutes long, and there’s a lot of science in it – but it’s well worth a watch, and has already been watched more than 5 million times!
That Sugar Book by Damon Gameau. I reviewed this book earlier this year, and although I’d read a lot about sugar before, this book really put it into context for me. In the book, Gameau decides that for 60 days, he will change his diet so that he’s taking in the same number of calories as before, but his food will be only sugary “health” foods. The results were shocking. There are numerous other books about sugar, and I’ve read lots of them, but this one really hits the nail on the head in that it clearly illustrates the problem – and it’s really easy to read.
I Quit Sugar – a fantastic website with a wealth of information including a blog with loads of fabulous recipes.
