Thanks so much for having your guest . Robert H. Lustig on your program today.. He is right on Target! I am living proof of that, I cut sugar out of my life(cookies, candy all of that) and introduced more fat, from butter, whole milk, cheese, meat, vegetables salads and limited amounts of bread which turns into sugar... My cholesterol after a year the bad kind was lower than ever and the good kind was higher than ever. My triglycerides were excellent and my cravings for sweets gone.. I have been so much healthier for the whole last year doing this.
