While cleaning my office/workout area, I played lots of YouTube videos learning about the Paleo diet, why we get fat and issues with sugar (specifically fructose). Exciting stuff, I know (yes, I’m serious). This Dr. Robert Lustig interview is a must watch for anyone who thinks they can lose weight simply by exercising. Our bodies don’t work that way.
After reading Gary Taubes‘ Why We Get Fat, I’m familiar with insulin’s major role in storing fat. But it’s always good to remind myself why I resisted that small bag of potato chips at the gas station today.
