I read this article today in the New York Times
, and obviously it scared the hell out of me.
I know that looking on the label and eliminating refined sugar, HFCS, and such are obvious solutions.
What are some less obvious solutions?
If fructose is so harmful, should I eliminate fruit from my diet as well? Or is fructose only harmful in high doses?
What about lactose? Is it just as bad?
What exactly constitutes "sugar"?
Your help is grateful appreciated.
