Robert Lustig: 136 Names for Sugar

If you want to lose weight and be healthier, the most important thing to avoid is sugar in all its forms. Avoid white sugar. Avoid honey. Avoid corn syrup. Avoid agave nectar. Avoid sugar-laden sodas. Avoid sugar-laden smoothies.

Beware: You might be eating a whole lot more sugar than you thought you were. Here are 136 so-called foods that are really sugar (or an artificial substitute) in just another form. Note: Artificial sweeteners are as bad for you as sugar itself (for different reasons).

Only a few of these might be okay to use: xylitol, stevia, monk fruit extract, or erythritol.

This list was originally presented by Dr. Robert Lustig at the 2014 James Beard Foundation Food Conference. It is presented in this form by Women’s Health magazine. It has since been added to by me to include new sugar substitutes, artificial sweeteners, and brand name sweeteners.

The Sugar Belly Secret by Joe Bovino

The Sugar Belly Secret by Joe Bovino

The Sugar Belly Secret reveals the simple secret to losing your sugar belly and never seeing it again. Trendy low-carb diets, exercise programs, exercise equipment, and weight-loss surgeries typically produce a yo-yo effect with short-term gains that cannot be sustained for a meaningful length of time. It’s a vicious cycle that teases you with progress, raises your hopes, and brings you crashing back to reality.

The Sugar Belly Secret is different. It’s a new, highly effective, easily sustainable weight-loss system based on the best practices of the most successful low-carb and high-carb diets that substitute real, healthy food and beverages for fake, processed ones. It doesn’t require you to count calories, reduce portion sizes, or exercise.

In his informative and entertaining new book, The Sugar Belly Secret: Subtract the Sugar, Lose the Weight, and Transform Your Life, Joe Bovino, explains how he discovered the secret to lasting weight loss and maintenance, and how you can use it to improve your appearance, health and fitness at any age. You’ll also learn to outsmart the food and beverage companies by spotting and subtracting products that expand your waistline; then add ones that don’t make you fat.
