Doctor Says Sugar, Not Fat, is Behind Obesity (The Guardian)

“Hold the sugar!” should be the rallying cry of dieters, according to U.S. doctor Robert Lustig.

Lustig advises: “It is not a case of eradicating sugar from the diet, just getting it down to levels that are not toxic.” That means six teaspoons of sugar a day for women, and nine for men. So skip the fruit juice, the soda and the alcohol and avoid products that add extra sugar, such as commercial salad dressings, bread, barbeque sauce, etc.
