The Sugar Fix

In his groundbreaking book, The Sugar Fix, Dr. Richard Johnson uncovers how fructose influences your body and demonstrably links the rise of obesity in America to our excessive intake of fructose.

His research program provides hands-on insight into this consuming topic that is sure to stir up conversation amongst medical professionals and everyday citizens alike.

It's no secret that processed foods, including candy, baked goods, canned items, and frozen meals contain high fructose corn syrup while sugar is sneakily tucked away in other edibles such as peanut butter, eggs, and soups. It should also be noted that many fruits and vegetables naturally possess considerable amounts of sugar.

By making practical substitutions, Dr. Johnson displays how to drastically reduce the intake of sugar in your diet. The daily meal plans that are featured hold less than 25 grams of fructose, a quarter of what an average American consumes currently.

Dr. Johnson's diet formula tackles weight loss in a much more enjoyable way than many of the current, strict low-carb diets: 50% carbohydrates, 25% fat, and 25% protein! With his approach, you can easily lose those extra pounds without having to give up all your favorite carbs.

Not only are there considerable positive effects from physical activity, but the rewards extend far beyond; decreased risk for major ailments such as hypertension, high cholesterol levels, and insulin resistance can be expected.

These issues directly contribute to serious conditions like heart disease, diabetes, renal malfunction, and stroke.
