Sugar Is Toxic

7164573186_638fc97c37_c The NYT Opinion recently ran a piece on a PLoS One study that links increased sugar availability to increased rates of obesity and diabetes. One  of our favorite things about paleo is the natural decrease in sugar consumption that it brings to most diets, simply because it means eating real foods. The study corroborates this approach.

The key point in the article is this: “Each 150 kilocalories/person/day increase in total calorie availability related to a 0.1 percent rise in diabetes prevalence (not significant), whereas a 150 kilocalories/person/day rise in sugar availability (one 12-ounce can of soft drink) was associated with a 1.1 percent rise in diabetes prevalence.” Thus: for every 12 ounces of sugar-sweetened beverage introduced per person per day into a country’s food system, the rate of diabetes goes up 1 percent. (The study found no significant difference in results between those countries that rely more heavily on high-fructose corn syrup and those that rely primarily on cane sugar.)

The study meets the “Bradford Hill’ criteria – the medical standard for inferring causation. The big takeaway at the end of the article sums things up pretty well:

It isn’t simply overeating that can make you sick; it’s overeating sugar. We finally have the proof we need for a verdict: sugar is toxic.

We agree. Want to reduce your sugar intake? Take our 30 Day Paleo Challenge.

Stalking The Paleo Diet In Dallas

The Dallas News recently ran a piece on the paleo diet and what it is. While nothing breathtaking, they trot out several of the familiar critiques of paleo:

“’If we look at our ancestors, they didn’t live very long.’ And a recent article in Scientific American largely debunks the premise for the diet and whether it’s truly paleo.”

Still, they give several great testimonials of strict and super strict paleo dieters who stress results, showing once again that it always comes back to personal experimentation and experience:

“It works very well for people with autoimmune disorders … It’s amazing to see the improvement in health.”

“If you begin to feel better, there’s no better testimony than that.”

We couldn’t agree more.

Recently, the paleo diet was featured on the Dr. Oz show. Now we’re not necessarily huge fans of the show (we’ve never watched an episode), it’s nice to see the paleo diet getting a little more mainstream love.

Kobe Bryant & The Lakers Go Paleo

The paleo diet is picking up steam – recently being adopted by the entire Lakers team. The initiative, spearheaded by Dr Gary Vitti was immediately embraced by NBA star Kobe Bryant.

 “Kobe was really on board right away because, as he’s getting older, he knows he needs an edge and that nutrition can be one of them. Since he’s adopted it, he says he feels remarkably better.”

Bryant has credited the diet of lean meat and vegetables, and avoiding carbohydrates, especially sugar, with his remarkable late-career resurgence last year.

Once Kobe jumped on board – the rest of the Lakers crew came over quickly. The change in diet has done wonders for Laker center Dwight Howard who was:

“eating the equivalent of something like 23 Hershey bars a day. A lot of that was fruit, which is supposed to be good.” The problem: Too much sugar. Dwight would “have a lot of energy, then get these insulin spikes and crash really quick.” Now that he’s shifted to the diet advocated by Dr. Cate, he and the other players are enjoying renewed energy.
