"If you have high insulin levels, then you will become obese in the long run? Absolutely."
"It just so happens that when you say high insulin levels, you make it sound like that's an easy thing to figure out. [But] it's not so easy."
Author Gary Taubes talks about the exact same thing in his book "Why We Get Fat".
Lustig says that he believes the increase in obesity in the past 25 years is mostly due to an increase in fructose consumption which causes insulin resistance, which raises insulin levels, which causes the body to convert more calories into fat, which makes people tired and hungry, and makes them fat.
Lustig says that the idea that people have gotten fatter due to a lack of will power is not correct.
