It's time to face facts. Low fat diets don't work. Thousands of Americans on low-fat, high-carbohydrate regimes gain back their weight in record numbers, often wreaking unhealthy havoc on their bodies. Why? Because the culprit isn't too much fat, it's too much sugar--and low-fat food is full of it. The truth is sugar causes the production of insulin which, in large amounts, keeps your weight from dropping off, no matter how strictly you diet or how often you exercise. Just look at the ingredients of your favorite foods: sugar is everywhere. So how can you possibly avoid it? The answer: SUGAR BUSTERS!

Developed by three renowned physicians and a CEO of a Fortune 500 company, SUGAR BUSTERS! is a revolutionary new diet plan based on sound nutritional principles that shows you how to eliminate sugar from your daily menu through easy-to-follow recipes and meal plans. This effective and groundbreaking program steers you away from overhyped (and insulin-producing) starches such as potatoes and pasta, white bread and white rice, carrots and corn--and leads you toward a sensible consumption of delicious foods once considered taboo. With SUGAR BUSTERS! you will

Develop a diet plan that is right for you
Determine the glycemic levels of various foods with a handy glycemic index
Discover which foods to eat at what time of day
Avoid food combinations that add pounds
Learn the myths of calories, fats, cholesterol, and weight gain
Feel great, increase your energy, and prevent chronic disease
Simple, practical, and easy to adapt to your busy lifestyle--including savory gourmet meal plans designed by twelve of New Orleans's famous restaurants like Antoine's, Galatoire's, Commander's Palace, and Brennan's--SUGAR BUSTERS! is the diet of the future, an amazing, new approach to eating, nutrition, and health. Throw away your fat-gram counters. Forget those outdated calorie concepts. Feast on a delicious, diet-healthy table of red meat, lamb chops, salads with Roquefort dressing, even red wine--and still lose weight.

Remember:

Cutting calories in the diet only leads to temporary weight loss.
Fats are vitally important to your body's metabolic process.
Large meals should never be eaten before going to bed--because cholesterol is also manufactured at night.
Fruits should not be eaten in combination with carbohydrates and fats.
A glass of wine has less sugar than an ear of corn.
Baked potatoes quickly convert to sugar in your stomach.
Forget the fight against fat! Break the sugar-starch habit today and enjoy the foods you love as you get healthy and lose weight with SUGAR BUSTERS!

Review:

Sugar Busters! was first independently published in New Orleans and sold an amazing 100,000 copies by word of mouth. Its advice may be hard to swallow for most Americans, as it advocates squelching your sweet tooth in order to lose weight. Those who follow the diet, however, swear by it, and no wonder: excess sugar consumption has been linked to depression, impaired immune function, and, of course, weight gain, as the body can almost effortlessly convert sugar to fat. Because sugar comes in so many different forms and hides out in unexpected places (carrots, beets, and white bread, among others) the authors list what foods are safe and which ones should be avoided and include a two-week menu plan for getting started. They also tempt the taste buds with recipes for unheard-of "diet" dishes such as Eggs Sardou and Filet Mignon with Bleu Cheese.

This book will be too basic for anyone with a solid knowledge of nutrition, but for those who are overdoing the sweet stuff and want some handholding and help with shedding excess weight, Sugar Busters! can do nothing but help.

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
