Who do you trust?

I hope it’s not Yahoo! news. They posted an article about high-fructose corn syrup (known as glucose/fructose in Canada) and how scientists say it’s more dangerous than regular sugar.

On the very next page, there was a separate article about common food myths. It stated that HFCS is no worse than sugar. It goes on to say that you should get no more than 9 teaspoons of sugar a day.

How about this Yahoo! news – do some actual research and write an article on the detrimental effects of sugar and how it should be eliminated from our diets. In the last 20 years, we increased our sugar consumption from 26 pounds to 135 pounds per year! That’s insane! In 1890, the average annual intake was a mere 5 pounds.

No wonder obesity, cancer, heart disease and diabetes are on the rise.

Anyway, back to the main topic. Who do you trust? Hopefully not Yahoo!. Pick up Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taubes or The Paleo Solution by Robb Wolf. Clear and concise research on the effects of diet on our health.

    Check out an interesting video in the crossfit journal. Talks about the psychological aspect of crossfit. Roundtable with the best of the best. Chris Spealler brings out very good points I found (about self imposed pressure and how we should approach crossfit).

    The article is called: Roundtable in Tahoe: The Psychological component (in Athletes, Videos, November 13th, also in Home page of journal)

        No problem Ed and Gabrielle. I always find myself putting a lot of pressure on myself for results too. All we can do is give our 100% every day and improve on a personal level. I thought it was pretty interesting to see similar struggles from the best in the world! It has to remain fun!

    My forearms are killing me from Friday’s workout and so this was a tough one, but it feels good to break a sweat after a day of homework and yardwork 🙂 I hope everyone’s week is off to a great start!
