Is a Low-Sugar Diet Actually Better For Weight Loss?

By

If you’ve heard that a low-sugar diet is the best…or only…way to lose weight, and if you’re afraid that’s true, then you want to listen to this episode.

If there’s one thing that would-be diet “gurus” everywhere agree on, it’s that a low-sugar diet is one of the most reliable ways to lose weight.

Cut the heinous sugar molecule out of your life, they say, and watch the pounds melt away.

Keep eating it regularly, though, they claim, and you’ll always look in the mirror with shame.

(Yeah, you know, I like to flex my lyrical muscles too…)

Please clap?

Er, anyway, sugar’s relationship to weight loss is all so neat and tidy…until someone like me comes along and points up the glitches in the matrix.

You know, the professor that lost 27 pounds in 10 weeks on a “convenience store diet” consisting of protein shakes, Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, sugary cereals, and Oreos.

How in the hell?

Or the well-designed and well-executed studies that have found no difference in weight loss whatsoever between low- and high-sugar diets.

Uh, that’s just funding biases, right?

Well, we’re going to clear all the fog in this episode. By the end, you’re going to know what sugar is, how your body reacts to it, how it does and doesn’t affect weight loss, and what, if any, changes you need to make to your diet to lose weight with ease.

Let’s start at the top.
