Amazon Review

Sugar sensitivity is not a syndrome that many of us would commonly consider having, but in fact it could be the cause of our everyday feelings. For example, one day we may feel confident while other times we may feel this confidence has slipped away--but for no apparent reason. The answer to these unexplained feelings could be that you are sugar sensitive. The author defines sugar sensitivity as "the body chemistry responding to sugars and certain carbohydrates differently than the next person." She continues: "This biochemical difference can have a huge effect on our moods and behaviour--how you feel is linked to what you eat and when you eat it." Potatoes not Prozac: a Natural Seven-Day Plan to Control Depression, Food Cravings and Weight Gain will help you discover whether you are sugar sensitive and if you are it provides a step-by-step dietary plan to maintain your blood sugar levels. Being sugar sensitive can also be another reason why you cannot lose weight or fight depression, according to DesMaisons. This book is fascinating as the author brings in her own experiences. It is an easy guide, providing background on the ups and downs of your blood sugar, and includes a user-friendly and detailed questionnaire for readers to discover whether they suffer from this treatable syndrome. The book then takes the reader through the first steps on the road to maintaining a suitable blood-sugar level and shows ways to keep on the right track and live a healthy and balanced lifestyle. This book shows that healthy living is all about simple changes which can make big differences in the way we feel about ourselves. Those wishing to read further around the effects of food on the body could also consider Dr John Briffa's Food for Health. --Louise Coyle
