“Sugar Is Poison. My Heart Attack Has Finally Opened My Eyes to the Truth”

Giles Fraser's heart attack was an eye opener - he realized that he'd been lied to:

As I write, my son returns from the shops, perfectly on cue, laden with a chocolate bar, a full-fat Coke and a packet of lollipops. I want to tell him that Willy Wonka is a death-dealing drug dealer. But I bite my lip for now. He will think me a crank. Everything he likes has sugar in it. That's my fault - he got hooked on sugary breakfast cereals as a child.

...After my operation, I cut out sugar and carbohydrates as best I could. I have lost 10 kilograms in the five weeks since. And I plan to lose a lot more. It's not a diet - I hate diets. It's a form of protest. The scales have fallen from my eyes. Beware the candy man.
