One of the biggest baddest impediments to weight loss is fructose consumption.  The following excellent lecture spells it out beautifully, both scientifically and in layman’s terms.  Although it is 1.5 hours long, it is well worth watching:

For those who don’t have the time, here is a paraphrased version:

Optimum Weight Loss:

1.  Get rid of all sugared liquids (yes that means juice too)

2. Eat carbs with fibre (i.e.: veggies)

3. Wait 20 min before having a second helping (it takes that long for the satiety signal to be felt)

4. Match screen time (all forms: TV, computer, etc.) with physical activity (exercise)

 

Be Well.
