videoThere is something about our culture of health. We have become very confused about what to eat and what NOT to eat. Between competing and conflicting theories about carbs and calories, points and proteins, we've become spooked by normal foods.

I was speaking today at a wonderful company, for their employees, and was struck by the questions. They wanted to know if an egg was okay (cholesterol) or a banana (carbs) or protein powders (protein).

Unfortunately, this problem is created by our scientific approach. Rather, it is caused by a misunderstanding of that science.

Fructose Drinks -- What You Already Know

Experimental chipmunks were made to drink Coca-Cola from a straw ....

Just kidding. That's not the research study. Although, you know what's funny, is that IF I said that there were some research design that did this, we wouldn't doubt it!!

Back to reality. What researchers actually did show in this article is the relationship between Fructose-sweetened beverages and the development of Metabolic Syndrome.

From the article: "Metabolic syndrome (MetS) is a condition characterised by central obesity, hypertension, and disturbed glucose and insulin metabolism. The syndrome has been linked to increased risks of both type 2 diabetes and CVD."

We are told many conflicting things by research science, by the corn growers association (gee, I wonder what they're going to tell us to do), and by novel diet theories that will certainly bombard anew us each January.

For you and me, however, we should rely on some long overdue common sense. Eat food. That goes for your drinks as well. If there needs to be a research study to determine whether or not its SAFE FOR YOU (hello?), perhaps the best first-pass solution is to just back up and consume things that we know are safe.

Sleep For Your Diet

This article reports on data that may seem counterintuitive.
