Sugar is toxic, addictive and everywhere. So what chance do you have of living sugar-free?

With busy lives and little time left for cooking we find ourselves relying on a diet of processed food. But this is what’s responsible for our chronically expanding waistlines, soaring levels of diabetes and a catalogue of diseases.

Dr Robert Lustig reveals the truth about our sugar-laden food:

· Why conventional low-fat weight loss advice won’t work: not every calorie is the same, and skipping lunch doesn’t mean it’s ok to eat dessert

· Why too much sugar can cause serious illness even if you are not overweight

· How the food industry is filling our diets with hidden sugars – and which foods you must cut out to avoid them

·How governments are complacent about, and even complicit in, exacerbating our food debacle

He will radically change the way you see your food and give you more than a fat chance of a healthier, happier and smarter life!
