Sugar: The Bitter Truth

In this popular video from YouTube EDU, Professor Robert H. Lustig attempts to explain the American obesity epidemic as being due to the rise of sugar and fructose consumption over the past 30 years. He examines the history of high-fructose corn syrup and how it has made its way into drinks like soda, fruit juice, and sports drinks, along with many foods. He goes into a detailed biochemistry explanation of how fructose is converted into fat, and why he feels fructose is a poison with many of the same effects of alcohol. Lustig links these findings to the childhood obesity epidemic since children are drinking more and more high-fructose corn syrup beverages. He closes by advocating the elimination of sugar beverages, the increase of fiber in the diet, and more exercise. Caution: After watching this video you might never drink soda again. Enjoy!

The China Study: The Most Comprehensive Study of Nutrition Ever Conducted

The China Study offers conclusive evidence that a change of diet can dramatically reduce the risks of heart disease, diabetes, and obesity. The book is based on the most comprehensive study of nutrition ever conducted, a 20-year joint project between Cornell University, Oxford University, and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine. The study surveyed the eating habits of 6,500 adults from all over China and Taiwan and found a direct correlation between diet and disease. Author T. Colin Campbell, the study’s project director, provides an intelligent, well-documented analysis of the study’s results, an analysis that explodes the most common American dietary myths. In addressing the dietary sources of the most common diseases, including cancer, Campbell unleashes a no-holds-barred attack on the commercial interests that profit by selling the American public unhealthy food. He also shows how readers can use the study’s results to change their diets and improve their health.

Change your diet, change your life — the most successful diets are diets that don't really "spell out" a "diet" at all. Make sense? It's all about lifestyle changes and not necessarily about the exact amount of food you eat, the combination of foods you eat, or how long you stick to a specific "meal plan". Check out a wide variety of audio titles by alternative health advocates and practitioners like Andrew Weil, M.D.. Dr. Weil's arsenal of audio books includes catchy titles like: "Eating Wisdom", "The Beginner's Guide to Healthy Eating" and "Taking Care of Yourself", to name a few. Dr. Weil's education, experience, and wisdom are inspirational, but he's not the only doctor in the house! Listen to Dr. Phil McGraw as he talks about the 7 keys to weight loss freedom and how they will open the doors to a healthier life for listeners, in "The Ultimate Weight Loss Solution". And if you're looking for other diet audio books that offer valuable weight loss tips and meal plans, including easy-to-follow recipes from popular Miami Beach restaurants, try Dr. Arthur Agatston's best-selling title, "The South Beach Diet".

Whether you want to get inspired to change your life style, find new ways to eat good food that's healthy, or just want to shave off the extra pounds, you will find an audio title here to help you reach your goals—however big or small.
