SUGAR BUSTERS! tells you how & why a low sugar diet is good for weight control & general health. Per government statistics, Americans consume over 149 pounds per person per year of refined sugar! Only 1,300 years ago the world average was zero. In just the last thirty years the incidence of obesity in U.S. children has doubled (same pattern for adults). The incidence of diabetes has tripled since the 50s, doubling in the last 10 years! Sugar consumption is up 20% since 1980. Sugar is the prime culprit. Our bodies did not evolve to handle huge quantities of sugar. SUGAR BUSTERS! recommended eating has been particularly effective with diabetics who consume far more sugar than they realize. One insulin dependent diabetic recently said: "After 2 months on SUGAR BUSTERS! diet, I am OFF insulin injections!" The key to weight loss & cholesterol control is insulin. Continued high levels of insulin are "toxic" to your body & ingested sugars create requirements for insulin secretion, etc. SUGAR BUSTERS! is medical & physiological fact written in common language. Available in bookstores through Ingram Book Co. or by calling or faxing Sugar Busters at 504-897- 6770.

The book contains good advice and a logical explanation. The diets differs from similar diets by including milk, butter, and fats. It excludes white rice, potatoes, and pasta. As in the case of most diets the book includes testimonials without hypothesis based clinical studies. Read full review

User Review  - MrJack - LibraryThing

The book is half explanation and half cookbook. The diet is simple and easy to follow. My doctor put it this way: "No sugar, no white potatoes, no white bread, no white pasta, and no white rice." With that advice, I was able to keep my Type II diabetes under control without medication. Read full review
