5.0 out of 5 stars Recommended to all my patients! An eye-opener!, 13 Jan 2012
This review is from: Suicide by Sugar: A Startling Look at Our #1 National Addiction (Paperback)
As a therapist and wellness coach I recommend this book to all my weight-loss patients especially those with a 'sweet tooth' or who feel that they constantly crave food even though they aren't hungry. In the book the author explains this phenomenon as the 'Dopamine Reward System' in the brain which tricks us into believing we are hungry even when we aren't!

Chapter 2 lists 140 medical conditions that sugar can cause. This is enough to scare anyone off of this unnecessary product in our diet.

Since giving up my own sugar addiction early last year not only have I finally lost my own stubborn belly fat; people say I actually look years younger (btw according to the book sugar reduces the elasticity in our skin and accelerates ageing!). Additionally I have far less aches and pains, don't get regular colds and flu bouts like I used to (sugar weakens the immune system according to the author). I also have much more energy since not eating sugar and my skin has improved.

At the back of the book there are detailed categories of healthy foods that one can eat whilst overcoming sugar addiction.

As stated before, a highly recommended read. I found that by reading the book 'Sugar Blues' prior to reading this book it gave me a more complete picture from a socio-economic view point as to why sugar is so prevalent in our food today and why mainstream media give sugar and it's toxic effects on the human body so little recognition.
