    I've watched the first three, and will continue the series. I appreciate that the reporter is using a non-hyped method of delivering his findings.
    In the past, I would have dismissed sugar cravings as being my own personal weakness, and that it must be a character defect on my part. While I still believe I am responsible for what I put in my mouth, I now understand that there is a chemical reaction going on that might make me crave more and more. Sure explains a lot!
    Thanks for sharing!

    What an eye-opener! Shame on Earl Butts! Everyone should watch this! It takes away some of the personal guilt about being overweight and educates on what is in our food causing us to more easily become obese.

    Thanks for sharing this. I've been watching a lot of healthy eating documentaries on Netflix on my phone during my train commute each day. I've emailed myself the link to this one and I'll start it tomorrow.

    Thanks again.

    I didn't know what to expect when I read your blog title. I thought maybe it was going to be a 'rant' about how boyfriends always look at you near the end of what has been a good food day and say things like "You want to go get some ice cream?" and you're like "NO!....okay, fine." LOL But that's not fair to boyfriends. I was glad to see it wasn't about that.

    The video was interesting. I have to say, it made me sad. I intend to watch more of this series when I have time, but the part that struck me was when they scanned his body and showed all the visceral fat inside, that you couldn't see. I shudder to think what my insides look like and that scares me quite a bit. I feel like I am fitter than I was a year ago, but honestly, I haven't been near a doctor since I started this and thus have no idea if I've made any changes to my actual health or not.

    Consumption has really ballooned out of control in this country (and others, apparently.) I think it says a lot about us, who struggle daily to control our portions and are consistently thwarted by food companies to consume much more than we ever should.

    Thank you for posting this and giving us all a little something to think about!
