    Thanks for this (said to be invaluable) book, I'm looking forward to reading it.

    My reference to this book came from Sugar: The Bitter Truth, which was a great lecture.

    As much as I believe in, and enjoy living the life of, the primal blueprint/paleo lifestyle I hated feeling so against all forms of carbohydrates. Watching my family eat potatoes, rice, legumes, etc was more of a burden than I wanted it to be. I saw many counter-arguments in support of carbohydrates, including the oft-touted Japanese being healthy while eating tons of rice. I was having trouble convincing myself that carbohydrates are as extremely evil as sometimes touted.

    I've since started to see more of the real picture and see the real evil in fructose (meaning I'm much looser on lactose & glucose for now) -- specifically, added fructose in any form. Excluding fruits, I know now that my number one advice to anyone nutrition-wise is to steer clear of fructose. Essentially translating to: stay away from processed foods.

    I truly believe every lifestyle "diet" (which I consider a battle of religions at this point) can agree on avoiding processed foods, with a keen eye on avoiding fructose (again, excluding fruits).

                Thank you! I've been wanting to read this for so long.

                    Thank you so much for this ... I did buy this and read it when it was first published and think I knew after that that sugar really was instinctively ... well just wrong! Thanks for allowing me to re-visit this .
