'Fat Chance' by Robert Lustig gives a very good description of how food is metabolized in the body. He is probably describing why with all the exercise I haven't been able to lose weight very easily. I've always said it is not 'calorie in calorie out' and he puts it down on paper why not. This is not necessarily an easy read but he gets right down to the studies and relates them to how the body works. I will continue to be a freak on exercise (at least for my age) but will be trying to get the sugar out, even more fiber in and not worry about the healthy fats as much. I'm only half way through the book.
