I was impressed with this book. I can see why it got such respectful reviews or at least that's how they seemed to me, the ones I read. I didn't see any of the usual snark or "all things in moderation" b.s. I thought it was quite convincing.

I noticed in the very back of the book he acknowledges Sugar Blues, by William Dufty, describing it as a big best seller. I remember reading that back then and uncomfortably recognizing the truth of it as I went about eating sugar for the next few decades. Sadly.

I think there is at least some support for "no sugar" these days.

Such support Gary Taubes has become a "Health Icon". I posted the details in the U.K. Forum, but The Royal Society of Medicine is having a TWO day event, talks, discussions, dinner, etc with Gary Taubes, Nov 18-19. He's a Health Icon now?!?

Bad sugar or bad journalism? An expert review of “The Case Against Sugar”.

http://www.stephanguyenet.com/bad-s...-against-sugar/

There was an interesting rebuttal from someone with Type I diabetes, saying Type Is understood the best about metabolism, carbs and sugar.

Anybody read The Hungry Brain? I don't quite know why Stephan Guyenet rejects the insulin hypothesis, or understand his own, but then I don't read his blog hardly. According to one reviewer on Amazon:

Quote:
Here is a quick summary of his advice for readers: 1. Don't eat calorie-dense foods. 2. Move more. 3. Get more sleep. 4. Reduce stress.

Thus if you need more detailed advice, then don't buy this book.



I think those are valid points, and obvious. It seems to me that the insulin hypothesis is equally obvious, at least for some. Maybe the theoretical differences come down to individualistic differences in bodies. I've been pleasantly surprised to read more and more advice lately that there is no one diet best for everyone.

I just finished my bowl of pecan and sugar-free cherry koolaid icecream. I'm feeling a bit sleepy and relaxed. I guess 3 out of 4 isn't bad. 4 out of 5 is even better, if you believe in insulin.

There is a bit of air in the ice cream, so I guess it's relatively less calorie-dense.
