We've been saying it for a while now, but let's go over it again. SUGAR IS BAD FOR YOU! A new study showed major improvements in kids' health in just 10 days of not eating sugar. The kids all lost weight and their bloodwork improved somewhat dramatically - IN JUST 10 DAYS!

The researchers argue that instead of thinking about sugar as empty calories that cause weight gain they should be seen as having a more threatening effect on the body's whole metabolic system.

The study "demonstrates that a calorie is not a calorie," Lustig explained.

"Where those calories come from determines where in the body they go. Sugar calories are the worst, because they turn to fat in the liver, driving insulin resistance, and driving risk for diabetes, heart and liver disease," he added. "This has enormous implications for the food industry, chronic disease and health care costs."

It's time to start taking this stuff seriously. Cutting out sugar should be your number one priority if you want to be healthy, lose weight, or just stay alive for a long time.
