    Just spotted this...

    I'm assuming this is Professor Richard D Feinman posting on the forum-Can only be a good thing IMO over there...Just don't tell Sid! Wink

    As a result of this I read a blog by Feinman and it was certainly pushing the same info so I believe it is the real one. From his blog I learned that he doesn't like Robert Lustig, in fact it was mostly a personal attack. The other thing I learned was that Lustig is probably right about fructose and FLD in high carb intake scenarios. (Just when you don't need a fatty liver).

    He also uses the word "probably" as in:-

    "At low total carbohydrate, any fructose that you do eat is probably converted to glucose anyway but probably appears in the blood slower than ingested glucose."

    If memory serves me right I think he joined a while back it may have been as Richard D Feinman or Professor R D Feinman can't be absolutely sure though
