You can forgive Dr. Robert H. Lustig if he says "I told you so." 

Because Lustig is one of many medical professionals pointing out the dangers of excessive sugar in the diet: obesity, heart disease, and more. 

In fact, he pointed it out nearly three years ago in his best-selling book Fat Chance.  The book is still in print, now in paperback, and the advice is clearly still valid. 

Dr. Lustig visits the Exchange with some tips on scaling back the caloric intake, especially sugar. 

Here's a link to the organization he co-founded, the Institute for Responsible Nutrition.
