Torito, posted this super video on the Men’s Health TNT Forum.

I particularly like the opening statement which challenges the general societal attitude that we carry extra weight because we can’t control our eating and are lazy.

“Did all of a sudden the entire world become a bunch of Gluttons and Sloths? All at the same time? I mean, get real!”

Here is the YouTube video of Robert H. Lustig, MD, UCSF Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology.  This 90 minute video “Sugar: the Bitter Truth” has been viewed over 3,900,000 times as of today.   Edit: Check out the 4/17/2011 NY Times Article on Lustig’s position.  He now has a book out entitled “Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease.”  Is this my next read?  EDIT: Just downloaded it to my Kindle.
