The Eating Enima – Simon Frost
For decades we’ve been faced with an eating enigma. Fats are bad for you, but good fats are good for you. Salt is bad for you, but your body needs some salt to survive. Artificial sweeteners are bad for you, but sugar is bad for you. It’s confusing enough to make you stare at your empty plate and ask, “So, what should we eat, then?” One thing is certain: since the 1970s when high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) was first added to soft drinks and processed foods, we have seen a steady increase in obesity and diet-related diseases such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. We are now seeing diseases in children that used to be considered adult ailments. But instead of presenting these facts as boring statistics in the “Thou Shall Not Eat This” tone that so many books of this genre take, The Eating Enigma explains in easily understood language the damage that sugar and HFCS actually do to our internal organs. It teaches how we can stave off type 2 diabetes, avoid becoming obese, and maintain good health naturally by feeding our bodies the nutrients we need. The Eating Enigma quotes Dr. Robert Lustig’s paper, “The Fructose Epidemic,” with his full permission, and it provides help and advice for those who have type 2 diabetes and are coming to this knowledge and understanding after the fact.
