The Bitter Truth about Sugar

Whenever we discuss personal trainer education, we keep coming back to the topic of nutrition. In the past few months, the health fitness specialist blog has featured entries on a variety of nutrition-related topics: the economics of obesity, a proposed sugar tax, diabetes, pink slime for school lunches, heart disease, and diet-related weight loss.

If you still aren’t convinced that diet is a key component of overall health and well-being, please consider tuning in to You Tube to hear Dr. Robert Lustig, Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at UCSF discuss the truth about sugar. The lecture is 90 minutes long, so plan ahead or break it up over the course of several days. It is worth it. Share your thoughts here after you listen!

This is one of my all-time favorite lectures and one that is required listening if you are interested in personal trainer education or want to become a health fitness specialist.
