The bittersweet truth is that our cravings for sugars & refined carbohydrates have altered us hormonally & metabolically. It has caused an explosion of obesity, hypertension, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s, and premature death, probably contributing to cancer & endless morbidity.


It’s time to analyze & take action now!

Key Takeaways:

All calories are not equal: 1,000 calories from sugar will be stored as fat while 1,000 calories from fat will be burned even if the body does not require it at that time.

Excess sugar and refined flours have led to hormonal imbalance in homo-sapiens: Excess sugar consumption results in sustained elevation of insulin levels leading to hormonal imbalance in the body. Symptomatically, a hormonally modified human will have a large waistline, high blood pressure, high blood glucose & high triglyceride levels.

Excess sugar & refined carbohydrates lead to multiple health problems: Obesity, heart diseases, diabetes, hypertension, likely dementia, and cancer.

Fruits are overrated: Since they have majorly fructose, which is worse than glucose. Fructose can be only metabolized by the liver into fat resulting in bad cholesterol and fatty liver.

All sugars are the same: Since they impact the body in the same harmful manner.

Sugar is highly addictive: Consumption of sugar releases dopamine in our brain.

The mantra for a healthy body: Zero sugar intake, intermittent fasting, and a low-carb diet improve insulin levels, increase HDL (good cholesterol) levels, and lower triglyceride levels (bad cholesterol). Caloric restriction does not work.

Lastly, the government should ban sugar: The diabetes mortality rate exactly maps with the sugar consumption on a graph. It is not related to the fat intake.
