9780091816872: Sugar Busters!: Cut Sugar to Trim Fat

This is not a diet but an eating plan that excludes certain foods - refined sugars, carbohydrates and starches. These are often present in conventional low-fat diets. Includes a 14-day eating plan and easy-to-prepare gourmet recipes.

Once you've listened to Sugar Busters!, you'll never look at a Snickers bar, a baked potato, or even a carrot stick in the same way. Developed by three doctors and the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, the basic theory of this diet plan is that intake of too much sugar produces too much insulin, which prevents you from losing weight. And since sugar hides in breads, other starches, and some vegetables, following the plan means more than just cutting back on Twinkies. Author H. Leighton Steward narrates the tape with a slow New Orleans drawl that takes some getting used to, but he paces the information so you can catch the details. The diet is quite simple, and since recipe cards are included, you should be able to implement the plan immediately. (Running time: 2.25 hours, two cassettes) --Sharon Griggins

From the Publisher:

My mother has been dieting ever since I can remember. When I was nine she had lost fifty pounds and was working as a lecturer for Weight Watchers. Eventually, she gained all the weight (and more) back again, and after many attempts at diets that didn't work, she resigned herself to being a "yo-yo" dieter--someone who can lose weight, but simply can't keep it off, usually gaining back more than originally lost. Why am I telling you this? Because three months ago I gave her a copy of Sugar Busters, not because I thought she should go on another diet, but because I wanted her to take a good look at her eating habits, and realize how they were affecting her quality of life. I had noticed that she would not really eat too much at meal time, but that she often had sweets inbetween, and almost always had dessert. And always had heartburn and stomach problems.

She's lost over 25 pounds since Mother's Day, and hasn't had a twitch of heartburn. She doesn't follow a strict "you can never eat anything tasty ever again" diet, but moderates her habits and is really getting an enormous kick out of being in control. Next she'll be starting on the exercise part, following Eight Weeks to Optimum Health, by Dr. Weill. If she can do it, so can you.A. Scheibe
