Cardiovascular disease (CVD) due to atherosclerosis is the leading cause of death in the U.S. Consuming excess carbohydrate (e.g. fructose, alcohol, and glucose in their decreasing order of proclivity to form fat in the liver) is the cause of this problem. Excess carbohydrate intake, particularly fructose, not cholesterol intake, gives rise to one’s so-called “bad” cholesterol which causes atherosclerosis. We have uniquely determined that one must eat right for your height to avoid obesity, diabetes, and fatty liver disease. We pass our insights on to you, including those involving sugar habituation or addiction. Cognitive behavioral therapy offers a very effective means of self-coping with habituation or addiction to either sugar or alcohol.
