    I received my BA degree from the University of Pittsburgh, my MS and PhD degrees from the Temple University School of Medicine’s Department of Physiology. My doctorate degree is in Physiology with special areas of study into exercise physiology and exercise biochemistry.

    My PhD thesis involved an extensive study into the regulation of metabolism (the study of how the body processes and uses food as fuel). I’m also a Certified Nutrition Specialist with the American College of Nutrition.

    Dr Greg, are you using the word "sugars" and "carbs" interchangeably? Broccoli has carbs, but no sugar. Is your premise that broccoli can only be eaten in really small amounts, or you'll get fat?

    I'm sorry, but what is the real point of this question? Certainly not to further the conversation. I don't want to speak for the Doc, but It's not like broccoli is loaded with carbs. You could surely eat quite a bit of broccoli without getting very many - you already know that

    Well its really about the calories. So if you eat 3000 calories of broccoli and you only burn off 2500 calories a day then yes you will gain weight... and probably turn green

    The real point was EXACTLY as intended. The OP said sugar of all kinds is BAD.

    Calories are king - good, bad or otherwise. Getting your calories from good sources has other benefits to your health besides weight control though, just like carbohydrates have other bad qualities than potential for obesity. Carbs are also absolutely necessay, but should, in my opinion, be kept low to keep away from their negative qualities. Just my $.02

    Is any of this news?

    Jeez. I can't believe I'm getting berated for asking a simple question regarding the original post!

    Now I'm forced to ask ... what was the point of the original post? Obviously not to encourage a dialogue on proper nutrition?

    Carbohydrates get turned into sugars in the body, simple as that, whether they are from fruit, veg, or whatever else. And in the article referred to at the beginning it shows that sugar is the problem not the meats and fats. Re read it and quote exactly where I misuse my facts and i'd be glad to clarify
