Default More evidence that LC is right...

In an editorial published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers say excess sugar and carbs -- not physical inactivity -- are primarily to blame for the growing obesity epidemic.

But calorie counting alone isn't the answer -- the source of the calories matters too. For every additional 150 calories of sugar (say, one can of cola), there was an 11-fold increase in the prevalence of type 2 diabetes, compared to 150 calories obtained from fat or protein. These results were independent of the person's weight and physical activity level.

"Sugar calories promote fat storage and hunger," the write. "Fat calories induce fullness or satiation." They say food marketers mislead the public with the message that all calories count equally."
