Why Sugar Makes us Fat

David Gillespie

A highly entertaining and informative read – David Gillespie makes the case that sugar is public enemy number one! He sets out to dispel earlier myths that ‘fat makes us fat’. In a fascinating analysis of evolution, economic forces and our human biochemistry – he tells us why “fructose is a killer of epidemic proportions”.

He tests his own fructose hypothesis on himself - as a 40kg overweight lethargic sleep-deprived father of four (with twins on the way) he follows a diet that eliminates sugar…and guess what happens? Yep, he gets lots leaner!

Sweet Poison exposes one of the great health scourges of our time and offers a wealth of practical and accessible information on how to avoid fructose, increase your enjoyment of food and lose weight.

The 14 contributors inside this book have worked with some of Australia’s leading sporting teams, biggest companies and most successful entrepreneurs. Each person has their own message and perspective on looking at improving people’s health, wellbeing and happiness.

Switched on is good thought provoking stuff if you are trying to build or grow a business in the health and fitness sector. td>
