The interview you shouldn't miss: I urge you to listen to it twice at least

Lustig's food advice
  • Oranges. Eat the fruit, don't drink the juice. Fruit juice in cartons has had all the fibre squeezed out of it, making its sugars more dangerous.
  • Beef. Beef from grass-fed cattle as in Argentina is fine, but not from corn-fed cattle as in the US.
  • Coca-Cola, Pepsi and other sweetened beverages. These deliver sugar but with no nutritional added value. Water and milk are the best drinks, especially for children.
  • Bread. Watch out for added sugar in foods where you would not expect it.
  • Alcohol. Just like sugar, it pushes up the body's insulin levels, which tells the liver to store energy in fat cells. Alcohol is a recognised cause of fatty liver disease.
  • Home-baked cookies and cakes. If you must eat them, bake them yourself with one third less sugar than the recipe says. Lustig says they even taste better that way.
