You’ve probably heard the “new nutrition” approach: if you eat too much and exercise too little, you’ll put on weight. Well, this mantra was put forward by the sugar industry, backed by bad science and heavy lobbyists, in order to hide the pernicious effects its product has on the general population. By pushing the idea that “a calorie is a calorie” no matter where it comes from, we’ve been led astray for decades.

So, do you feel ready and willing to cut out of your diet the biggest cause of contemporary afflictions?
