Sweetly Seduced: Why We Can't Say No To Sugar by N.J. Rickman

Sweetly Seduced: Why We Can't Say No to Sugar (Weight Loss Questions and Answers)
This is an interesting report on the effects of sugar on our bodies.
Much of it I had read before, such as the fact that diet sodas cause weight gain - and the author explains that this is because the sweet taste tells our brain we should be getting a certain amount of calories and when we don't, we are hungrier and thus eat more of other things. One thing I was not aware of is that high fructose corn syrup is linked to high cholesterol.
