Post loads to comments.

Thanks Leslie for turning us on to this cool video.


  1. Leslie :

    I also watched/listened to his original speech referenced in this segment on youtube. It is long and the middle is really technical- but if you have a spare 1.5 hours it is super interesting. He does get the paleo diet a bit wrong- he references it but then starts talking about raw foods. If you need more reasons not to eat sugar….

    SO I watched a “movie” the other day and I would love to hear the views and opinions of all of the smart people of Verve. Particularly Cherie and Matt with your extensive knowledge of food intake and the process behind it. The movie was “Fat, Sick and nearly dead.” I watched it on netflix. I understand that what he is doing is not intended to be a long term thing but a “fast” but what are the effects of not having protein in the mix? Are fasts like this good in short stints to as they say in the film “re-boot” your system or your body? I have heard of Paleo people doing a fast to do a similar thing. :Le the know. And if you want check out the movie it is interesting.

    I have seen research from Princeton showing that in lab animals HFCS does actually cause higher rates of obesity than regular sugar. So Dr. Lustig in this video may be wrong on that aspect of sugar and HFCS being equally bad.

    From the article: “A Princeton University research team has demonstrated that all sweeteners are not equal when it comes to weight gain: Rats with access to high-fructose corn syrup gained significantly more weight than those with access to table sugar, even when their overall caloric intake was the same. ”

    Still sugar isn’t great.
