27 of 27 people found the following review helpful By Mrs. S. Goulding on 10 July 2006
Format: Paperback
I bought this book about 4 weeks ago just out of interest. At the time i was browsing for cookbooks and thought this book could answer some questions for other members of my family. When the book arrived i began to read it and i was struck straight away by the 10 questions in the intro. When i answered 9 out of 10 as a yes the message was clear!! I was hooked on the book and read it within a week. It was so informative and well written it made it easy to read and to even understand all the science regarding sugar sensitivity. As i sat there with an oversized chocolate bar on my lap this book was a huge wake up call. I never fully accepted or understood why i had a problem with eating sweets and sugar foods til reading this book. It moved me to tears with its accuracy and i felt it had been written directly for me as i sympathised with the scenarios and case studies throughout the book. It also contains recipes and tips from other sugar sensitives and more than a little humour to keep the subject from getting to intense and overwhelming. I have now been on the programme for 2 weeks and have already stopped having mid morning cravings. After trying several failed diets I feel i have finally found the key to my problems with weight gain. The book is extremely informative about sugar sensitivity but also helpful in overcoming it with a seven step plan that involves every day things. Its also a great confidence boost to realise its your brain chemistry calling you to the chocolate aisle in the supermarket rather than a lack of willpower. I have begun reading the book again but this time sticking a post it on all the useful pages, it has become my new bible and once you read it you'll want to take it everywhere!

Format: Paperback
I've tried various apporaches to the carbohydrate issue including Atkins and The Carbohydrates Addicts. I find this is the simplest to live by. I don't really think of myself as on a diet at all yet I've lost about 20 lbs as a side effect to my "radiant recovery". My mood, energy level and confusion all improved for the better within days. I've been working the program about 3 months. I haven't yet finished all the steps. But eating 3 meals a day with protein, concentrating on complex carbohydrates and that nightly potato really do make a trememdous difference.

Format: Hardcover
I started the program in October 1999 and have never looked back. It's a long process but I noticed positive changes quite early on and that encouraged me to continue. A year on I now feel energetic, calm, relaxed, optimistic and happy. Happy is not a feeling that I have ever really experienced before - and it's wonderful - radiance is what Dr DesMaisons calls it!
I've increased what I eat by about half, and at the same time have lost 2 stone - I'm never hungry, never overeat and haven't had a migraine for months. I've just had my first sugar (and alcohol) free Christmas and it was great!...
I owe an eternal debt of gratitude to Dr DesMaisons for showing me that it wasn't my fault, my body chemistry was the problem - and how easy it is to correct that and find a balance in my life.

Format: Paperback
Are you fed up of feeling bad on the inside? Do you suffer from depression? Addictions of any kind? PMS? Can't control your eating? Then this book is for you.

Be part of the growing number of people around the world who are changing their lives by implementing the straightforward dietary changes outlined in this book.

I love Kathleen DesMaisons' style of writing - she comes across as being very caring and genuine. There are plenty of hints and tips to get you started and a thriving online community to provide ongoing support. It is really helpful and there is no charge to join.

I used to eat compulsively and have no self-esteem. I was depressed, had horrific mood swings and zero confidence. After reading this book and changing what and when I eat I am now confident, calm, centred, feel happy and I haven't binged in nearly a year. That in itself is a miracle.

If this is your story too, then buy this book, you won't regret it.

I was so excited when I learned that DesMaisons had written a sequel to her book. Potatoes not Prozac is my all time favourite; it was an answer to my problems and it honestly changed my life. Also, I really loved DesMaisons practical, "non-american" way of writing, simple truths, no extra blaa-blaa. What a dissapointment it was when i started reading the Total Recovery Program. The information is basicly still true and valuable, but why write another book if you have nothing new to say? If you read Potatoes don't get this one, it's a rip-off. If you didn't read the first one, read eather one (not both), you'll love them.
