It's impossible to avoid the bitter truth - sugar is bad for us, and just how bad, we're only beginning to find out. Nicole Mowbray was one of those sugar addicts and in Sweet Nothing she tells us about the incredible effects on her body and moods once she kicked the habit. (PRESS ASSOCIATION)

However, the over-reliance on James Duigan’s Clean and Lean book and subsequent quotes from him and references to his Bodyism gym (and nutritional products) made a lot of the book feel as if she was warming over other people’s ideas (as well as promoting someone else’s business). A similar discussion around sugar, and how insulin affects the body as well as how fat isn’t as evil as we thought can be found better explained and discussed in any of Dr John Briffa’s books.
The main issue I had with this book (and, indeed, with many newly published books) is the laughable level of copy editing. There are elements of copy which are repeated, and in one case a chunk of a quote which reappears again just over the page.
The wrong version of rein/reign is used. As well as the real stinker of a sentence: “A bit of researching revealed to me that it’s a completely empirical statement, in other words it’s never been proved in a clinical setting.” Someone needed to look up the meaning of empirical, I think.
Yet this isn’t surprising when you consider that in the final chapter we find out she was still writing it in March 2014, but it was published just three months later in June. Seems like a case of trying to cash in on the low-sugar wave…
Whole fruits are one of the best foods we can put in our bodies - biologically it is the easiest food source for us to make nutritional use of. To paraphrase Douglas N Graham, 'no one got fat, diabetic, or candida from eating fruit'. Fruit in it's whole form is so full of fibre that the small amount of natural fructose does not cause harm. It is the processed fructose we need to avoid. I eat lots and lots of fruit as part of my now plant based, processed-sugar free diet, and have no problem maintaining a size 8 figure at 40+ years old and having had 4 children, and I don't get ill - the viruses, colds and bugs that do the rounds all pass me by these days. So I know that eating lots of whole fruit does not make you fat and sickly. Eating processed fructose does.
I applaud the processed sugar free message - but don't demonise one of nature's best gifts to us - wonderful fresh fruit!

started off a funny inspiring read but found out pretty quick that I didn't much like the author and that it tails off into sad lonely nothingness towards the end. Read morePublished 14 months ago by moon smiles
