Do you think eating pure protein or pure sugars/carbs would be a better approach to weight loss? Twin doctors Chris and Xand Van Tulleken asked just that question in their BBC Horizon documentary called Sugar V. Fat, and their surprising results could give you a reason to keep some carbs in your diet while trying to slim down!
They are also looking at what happens to the brain when you’re eating, and its response to a piece of broccoli is startlingly different than to chocolate, or a doughnut. The Van Tulleken’s suggest that response just might be the key to why your diet is proving to be such a challenge, even though you have the best intentions! Why? Their findings will shock you.
