 Robert H. Lustig Biography

Robert H. Lustig, M.D. is Professor of Pediatrics in the Division of Endocrinology at University of California, San Francisco, and Director of the Weight Assessment for Teen and Child Health (WATCH) Program at UCSF. Dr. Lustig is the author of the New York Times bestseller Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity, and Disease where he documents the science and the politics that has led to the pandemic of chronic disease over the last 30 years. Fat Chance debunks the widely held notion to prove “a calorie is NOT a calorie,” and takes that science to its logical conclusion to improve health worldwide.

Prior to coming to San Francisco in 2001, Dr. Lustig worked at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. There, he was charged with the endocrine care of many children whose hypothalami had been damaged by brain tumors, or subsequent surgery, radiation, or chemotherapy. Many patients who survived became massively obese. This has led him to explore the specific role of fructose (half of sucrose and high-fructose corn syrup) as a specific mediator of both chronic disease, and continued caloric consumption. His now notorious YouTube video, “Sugar: The Bitter Truth” continues its popularity with the lay public and has been viewed more than three million times.

A native of Brooklyn, NY, Dr. Lustig graduated from MIT and received his M.D. from Cornell University Medical College. He completed his pediatric residency at St. Louis Children’s Hospital and his clinical fellowship at UCSF. From there, he spent six years as a post-doctoral fellow and research associate in neuroendocrinology at The Rockefeller University.

He has mentored 20 pediatric endocrine fellows and trained numerous other allied health professionals. He is the former Chairman of the Ad hoc Obesity Task Force of the Lawson Wilkins Pediatric Endocrine Society, a member of the Obesity Task Force of the Endocrine Society, a member of the Pediatric Obesity Devices Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and a member of the Steering Committee of the International Endocrine Alliance to Combat Obesity. He also consults for several childhood obesity advocacy groups.

In his speeches, Dr. Lustig clarifies the complexities of obesity in an accessible, insightful and often humorous manner.

Speaking Topics
  • Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Food, Obesity & Disease

    In the late 1970s when the government mandated we get the fat out of our food, the food industry responded by pouring more sugar in. The result has been a perfect storm, disastrously altering our biochemistry and driving our eating habits out of our control. To help us recover our health, Dr. Lustig presents personal strategies to readjust the key hormones that regulate hunger, reward and stress; and societal strategies to improve the health of the next generation. Compelling, controversial and completely based in science, Dr. Lustig debunks the widely held notion to prove “a calorie is NOT a calorie,” and takes that science to its logical conclusion to improve health worldwide.
