As someone who virtually eliminated sugar from his diet almost a year ago as part of a reduced carbohydrate diet <way of life> that has left me weighing less, feeling stronger, and in better health than at any other time in the last 30 years, I highly recommend paying close attention to this 60 Minutes story on the subject from last night.

That doctors learning the results of these recent studies about sugar immediately remove it from their own diet should be reason enough to take this very seriously.

Amid our great health care debate, where many pundits say our problem is “health”, not “health care”, I wonder how much money the nation could save simply by drastically reducing sugar consumption.
