Book Description

27 Feb 2008
In this new edition of the bestselling Get the Sugar Out, nationally renowned nutritionist and well-known author Ann Louise Gittleman explains that sugar not only contributes to weight gain but also to mood swings, weakened immunity, diabetes, some cancers, and cardiovascular disease. Here she offers 501 simple, resourceful, and practical tips for cutting sugar from your diet, giving you the knowledge and inspiration you need to live a healthier life. A few of Gittleman’s basic ways to cut sugar include:

• Eat more meals at home, so you can oversee the ingredients and avoid hidden sugars
• If you have a sweet tooth, try tricking it by chewing on a cinnamon stick
• Be a food detective; don’t trust “sugar free” or “fat free” labels
• Cut down on salt not only to be healthier but because it helps cut out sugar cravings
• Don’t exchange sugar for artificial sweeteners; as you’ll find out here, many are harmful

With type II diabetes at an all-time high, cutting sugar from your diet is imperative. Get the Sugar Out is your solution for treatment and prevention: a unique, practical guide to a healthy and happy low-sugar lifestyle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Perhaps some usefull imformation but... 22 Nov 2009
An example of one of the recipes here is basically "put an onion in the oven and bake it then eat it". This book is clearly somewhat cobbled together, i guess when you see how many other books the writer has produced you can understand that there must be some corners cut in places.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really impressed 13 April 2010
I was positively surprised by this book. It was recommended to me and I thought that it would probably just be another book that tells you how important it is to cut sugar out... and it does! However, it gives you lots and lots of ideas for alternatives, as well as really good and simple recipes. So it does not just tell you why to cut sugar out but also how. A favourite in our kitchen!

4.0 out of 5 stars I have given this 4 stars as I only looked ... 13 Aug 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have given this 4 stars as I only looked at it briefly before wrapping it as a gift. It seemed quite sound and informative with recipes as well, but no time for a complete read through or practical application of the strategies suggested so this is not an in depth review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only book that I EVER lost weight with...ever!! THIS WORKS 16 July 2008
By Feeling Younger Now - Published on
I have tried to lose weight for YEARS! I have done it all, low carb, more protein, blah blah blah and on and on. I jogged, I did aerobics, I swam, and on and on and would lose 1 pound and that was it.UNTIL I READ THIS BOOK! I first read this book about 1 month ago and have lost over 5 pounds. I have have not changed my exercise routine or anything, the only thing I have changed is getting the sugar out. There are so many hidden sugars in food that KEEP US FAT! When you become a label detective, like she tells you to do, you will see just how much extra sugar you consume each day. I eliminated this hidden sugar in food and the pounds are falling off! I feel like I have turned the clock back 20 years using this book. I am so tired of being fat and feeling miserable, there is NO WAY I would ever go back to eating hidden sugars again. If you want to lose weight, this is the way to do it.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this book! I bought several copies for my family & friends. 24 Oct 2009
By Brooke Townsend - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In a search to discover what my health ailments are, I have read several books on sugar, including "Sugar Shock!", "Lick the Sugar Habit", "The Yeast Connection" and "Get the Sugar Out". Although all the books were very helpful, this one was my favorite because it offered simple and practical solutions that were stated in very clear terms. I continually use this book as a reference guide and love the recipes that are located inside. This book is definitely worth your time and money - you'll use it for years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ann Louise does it again! 30 Aug 2008
By Dr. Jonny Bowden - Published on
Ann Louise Gittleman is a pioneer, and had the right idea on a lot of things way before they became popular. This is one of my favorite Ann Louise books, and i've used these concepts in my own writing and teaching for years. This is a terrific little guide to how to begin to get rid of the most damaging substance in your diet- sugar. No kidding.

Should be "required" reading for anyone concerned with their health

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Book! 30 Aug 2008
By Ward W. Bond - Published on
Ms. Gittleman is spot on with this book. I'm hypoglycemic and her advice helped me. She's right about the dangers that sugar can lead too. I'm eating healthier, exercising more and I don't have the sugar cravings I once had. If you ever want informative nutritional advice that's easy to read, she's the one to follow! I've also become a more educated shopper by following her helpful advice on reading food labels. I'll be reading her other health books too.

By V. Paretti - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is easy to read and also has easy steps to follow to reduce your dependency on sugar. If you need to cut your sugar or eliminate it completely, this book is a good place to start. You can use 1 tip at a time or jump in completely and use all the tips.
