The soundbyte summary: “Cutting back on sugar consumption for the mainstream is remarkably effective. But any concept taken to an extreme is incorrect.”
• Defining “sugar” and understanding the biochemistry including high-fructose corn syrup
• Understanding how we eat sugar and dose
• Does the liver convert fructose to fat?
• Association studies between fruit consumption and health
• Diet trends of calories, carbohydrates, fruit, and fructose consumption
• Randomized controlled trials with fructose
• Theoretical maximum of healthy fruit consumption (how much fruit is too much?)
