this guy was sugar this, sugar that, but he never mention another item that should always be looked at. And that is Sodium. Sodium can cause high blood pressure and heart problems. Specially when you're sitting behind a wheel of a 18 wheeler 11 hours out of the day and not exercising.

I load my fridge up with water, fruit, veggies which I eat raw.
If you peel and freeze two super ripe bananas, blend them with any other fruit, a half a cup of coconut milk, or almond milk, or whatever you like,a half teaspoon of vanilla extract, add protein powder if you want,,and you have one super healthy and super tasty smoothie.

When I was a Nursing Major I took a course in Nutrition where I was told by my professor, who was a licensed Nutritionist, that the only impact sugar has on a persons diet is the potential to rot teeth. Is this true? Where are you getting your info from? Thanks for posting the video, I like the healthy food choices.
