Book Description

5 Jun 2014

Two years ago Nicole Mowbray gave up sugar and the effects were astonishing. It changed her life, her body, her relationships, her face and her health.

Now sugar is under fire and firmly in the dietary spotlight - the World Health Organisation have lowered the recommended daily intake and Britain's chief medical officer Dame Sally Davies has raised the idea that sugar may even be addictive. Nicole's book - part memoir, part guide - will help people to give up sugar. She interviews experts, including nutritionists, cardiologists, and psychologists, to back up the science and explore the link between sugar, validation and our emotions.

Nicole shares with readers how she did it, why they should, what they can expect and how they can do it - with recipes, expert tips and help along the way. This book will tell you what to kick and what to keep and how not to fall into the secret sugar traps.

Sugar: I never thought I was an over-enthusiastic consumer of this recently introduced product to the human race. I don't have a sweet tooth, I don't add it to drinks - and neither am I someone who has to have the latest highfalutin smoothie or diet something-or-other at key points during the day. But, like the author, I enjoy sushi and other 'health' foods such as granola and a decent glass of wine...turns out these preferences in my diet are most likely contributing to my hard-to-shift muffin top. I really enjoyed this memoir on two levels: the author's personal journey in eradicating the white stuff from her diet and the amount of research there was in it to back her approach and perspective up. I recommend this to anyone who wants to make changes to their lifestyle and their sugar consumption.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book 26 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I share all the symptoms Nicole mentioned in her book and was amazed to think of the damage sugar can cause. It was easy to read, I love Nicole' s stories about her own experience and I finished reading it in a day! It has inspired me, informed me and entertained me. It makes sense. I began today. I'd recommend to anyone 100%.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very interesting 10 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Really interesting factual book. It's very difficult to find foods that don't contain sugar and I've always struggled with sugar issues so this has reaffirmed my belief that sugar is poisoning us all. Well worth a read. The only downside was rather irritatingly the author repeated "and the like" far too many times!

OK as a slightly luvvy story of a London fashion editor's journey to becoming sugar free. Plenty of hyperbole but overall an interesting and vaguely inspiring story of what can happen when sugar is removed from our diet.

Pretty hopeless as any kind of "how to" guide - references some "nutritionists" who give often incorrect and conflicting advice, the book confuses the real issue with sugar (an excess of fructose) with all sorts of other vague theories about giving up bread, low GI diets etc. From any kind of factual or scientific perspective this is very ill informed.

You'd be better off reading any of David Gillespie's "Sweet Poison" books or Robert Lustig's "Fat Chance".

Quite easy to read but could have done with a few more tips and less about the authors private life

This contemporary book covering 2012-2014 is well researched and well written. Nicole is a true sugar addict. If she can come off sugar, anyone can. It's sensible, practical and often very funny. Easy to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was factual but also very easy to read 18 July 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was such an interesting and honest account of giving up sugar. It was factual but also very easy to read, and very helpful for anyone wanting to learn about nutrition without reading a scientific book.

LOVE this book! Haven't finished reading it yet but feel so inspired and have already started having less sugar. Terrible headaches for first few days but feel great less than a week later. Really easy reading and thoroughly enjoyable. Interesting and humorous.
