4 Simple Steps to Weight Loss

A few weeks back I stumbled upon this video entitled “Sugar: The Bitter Truth”.  The 89 minute rant by Dr. Robert Lustig, UCSF Professor, vehemently underscores the impact of fructose in our society.  I must admit that I had to break up the presentation into two sittings because of its length, but it was well worth the time.  The in-depth talk makes a stunningly strong case for the elimination of sugars in the human diet.  Fructose he explains is the real culprit and is found in nearly everything, in either the form of High Fructose Corn Syrup or Sugar.  Dr. Lustig asserts that chronic fructose exposure leads to Hypertension, Myocardial Infarction, Dyslipidemia, Pancreatitis, Obesity, Hepatic Dysfunction, Fetal Insulin Resistance and Habituation, if not addiction.  

However, what most interested me was the successful intervention that his department used to help reverse these lifestyle diseases in a large population of children.  The simplicity of the study is what really caught my attention.  The ambiguous recommendations and blatantly overwhelmingly advice from many health professionals is sending the public into a tailspin from information overload.  In the UCSF WATCH Clinic Lifestyle Intervention they taught parents and children four simple things to change.

1.      GET RID OF ALL SUGARED LIQUIDS – DRINK ONLY WATER AND MILK

2.      EAT YOUR CARBOHYDRATE WITH FIBER

3.      WAIT 20 MINUTES FOR SECOND PORTIONS

4.      BUY YOUR SCREEN TIME MINUTE FOR MINUTE WITH PHYSICAL ACTIVITY

The patients were followed every three months and the results were astounding (see below).  Don’t let complexity ruin your plan.  Keep things SIMPLE!
