I took this on to accompany someone who needed to shed some pounds for medical reasons, and therefore I wasn't going to make a big deal of it. However, as the pounds fell away very early on, I took it more seriously. Of course with all detox treatments, you have headaches and feel weaker than usual, but nothing that can't be handled.
As I moved from the initial detox to eating more, I noticed an increase in energy, which I at first attributed to the contrast with the first three days, but then I realised I actually did have more energy. And the pounds were flying off - and I am a tallish man and very far from overweight. My stomach flattened and I lost my craving for sugary highs. So when allowed fruit it tasted very sweet.
It takes some effort finding your way round the book as the index lacks detail, but once I got the hang of it I began improvising within the guide lines. By week three I had lost ten pounds.
After a month you have to rely on searching out the recipes from permitted foods, which takes more effort than the early weeks, but I now know what can and cannot be eaten and although I put back a few pounds when I started eating something approaching a normal( but sugar free) diet, after maintaining my weight level, I started losing again. I am now on week 8 and am 11 pounds lighter than when I started.

I would suggest reading about the permitted foods because knowledge helps, but otherwise I would say this is a useful book. I was never one hooked on sweet foods, or desserts, or chocolate(although chocolate is permitted)but I am even less so now.
A good book and one in keeping with the current thinking: SUGAR IS THE NEW VILLAIN. I would recommend it, if only to make people look again at their eating habits, and to be more discriminating in their choices.

I looked into the diet as I have health issues. I was already gluten and lactose free but still being contaminated through sugar (I'm coeliac). This was really easy to follow, and for me quite simple. As I didn't need to cut bread/cakes/pastries from my diet, it wasn't a chore doing the three day detox. Three weeks later, I have no sugar cravings whatsoever, my appetite is greatly diminished due to not having the sugar push to eat. I finally understand why people who don't have a sweet tooth can be slim: they don't have the drive to eat.

The book is laid out in a functional way, and although written primarily for an American audience loses little in translation. The same applies to us fat Brits as anyone else: dump the sugar, dump the weight. I like the little vignettes scattered through it, offering examples and testimonials from real people.

I know it's all a bit 'on trend' to follow the latest diet, whatever it is. However this book has changed my life. Losing the sugar, glucose and fructose from my life has turned it back to normal. Although I'll never go back to eating 'normally' again, at least I will be healthier for it. If you're coeliac and struggling to control your symptoms even after you've given up gluten, read this book and follow it for a month. Hopefully, it will change your life for the better too.

Great advice in this book, and is backed up by the latest hard science. It's a tough detox for a committed sugar addict - especially like me if you have a dislike of most veggies like me, this is no walk in the park.

The biggest annoyance about it, is no one has bothered to do a UK version of this book so instead we have American imperial measurements, references to food hard to find in British supermarkets (e.g. yams, summer squash) and list of approved products, most of which are unheard of in the UK. SO, you will have do a fair bit of googling in addition to this book to find their alternatives.

Also, warning chaps - a lot of this book (for some inexplicable reason) is blatantly aimed at women and there's a whole chapter on face masks! RIGHT! And all the case studies are from women too.

At last I no longer crave sugar. I can walk past the pick and mix counter. I like the fact I can snack on nuts and not have to weigh everything I eat. I have lost 1 stone in 4weeks 3days. I would recommend it to anyone but you do need willpower for the first 3 days.

On reading this book before embarking on the recommended eating programme, the nutrition advice seemed very sensible. Cutting out most things containing sugar has worked for me and I would encourage anyone wanting to lose weight to read this book first.

An unbelievable book fully illustrating the damage sugar can do to our bodies. Well worth reading if you have any concerns of sugar addiction
