  • 1 thought on “Sugar Busters! Cut Sugar to Trim Fat”

    1. An older book, I think this came out in 1995, about the connection between America's obesity crisis and the addition of refined sugar in our food. Written by three medical doctors, the book is sinple and straightforward. There are meals plans and some recipes at the end. There are more recent books like Good Calories, Bad Calories by Gary Taube, which give greater insight into the disastrous effects of sugar in our diet, but SugarBusters is a good start.

    2. I read this book ten years ago and have remembered it's easy advice for cutting sugar to trim fat. My husband lost 80 lbs and I lost 20. We've kept it off by maintaining the sugar buster way of eating. I don't like to call it a diet, it's just the way we eat.

    3. I thought the rationale behind this book made a lot of sense. I however did not follow through with the plan. This is a book I plan to re-read and maybe incorporate some of the principals within my diet. I do eat too many processed foods and sugars. Not good for my particular health needs. This book has been out a while. I do recommend it.

    4. Written by a CEO, a cardiovascular surgeon, an endocrinologist, and a gastroenterologist, the book has credible authorial expertise. Most useful are the lists of acceptable foods and foods to avoid.Combine this book with wide reading on nutrition, and then assemble your own yes/no food lists.

    5. This is the book that compelled me to commit to cutting out added sugar from my diet. It's terrifying how much sugar the average American consumes, unknowingly, per year. In 2000, it was 158 pounds. This huge intake of sugar has a lot to do with why people are developing type II diabetes.

    6. Celebrated finishing this book today by a serving of French toast with genuine maple syrup. But I do plan to (and already do) use it's better ideas. I suspect the authors are still too anti-fat in diet, but they make strides.

    7. UsefulInformative read. Helped us better understand how and what to get with low sugar. Great recipes to use while on this diet

    8. Good guideLists brands and foods to look for for those new to no sugar and restricted diets. Found it very helpful.

    9. Pretty boring and kind of preachy. I didn't really find that there was a great deal of useful information. Not the best anti sugar book out there.

    10. Nadaljevanje oz. nadgradnja Montignacovega koncepta glikemicnega indeksa. Iz lastnih izkusenj preverjeno in v kar absolutno verjamem. Zelo dobro razlozi kako zadeve "res" delujejo in pomece s stereotipi ki se jih na zalost oklepajo tradicinalni nutricionisti in je zakoreninjeno v naso miselnost in vsakdan.Na nek nacin zelo preprosto in prav neverjetno kako se o tem govori ze kar nekaj casa (nekaj desetletij), vendar nikakor ne dobi bolj splosne veljave. Avtorji sami to razlagajo s tem, da Montin [...]

    11. I'll confess, I only read the Intro, first chapter, chapter 9 and peeked at the recipes. Had I realized what this book really was, I would have never borrowed it from the library! This book is a completely fallacy- any "diet" that tells you you can eat all the "steak, lamb chops, cheese, eggs and so on" but completely cut out potatoes, corn, beets & carrots is not going to be a healthy diet. Yes, eliminating your sugar intake does help- but that doesn't mean you can eat anything you want tha [...]

    12. This book was written a little while ago, in 1995. Many of the topics in here about the damaging effects of sugar are becoming mainstream knowledge now, but I'm sure it was more novel at the time.This book is a simple and quick read, basically focusing on the effects of sugar on the body and making a plan to eat foods that are void of or low in sugar as well as to avoid foods that are high on the glycemic index. The type is big, the margins wide, the pages small, and almost half of the book is t [...]

    13. This book wasn 19t the most exciting read, but the advice it gives is sound and the diet programme and recipes are easy to follow. Sugar Busters was one of the first Low GI Diets and this is an updated version.The link between obesity, insulin resistance and diabetes is one that should not be ignored. Even if you don 19t follow the diet plan to the letter, cutting out some of the obvious sugars in your diet, as well as the hidden ones can only have a positive effect on your health and on your we [...]

    14. I read this book years ago when it first came out. After being diagnosed with PCOS last year and realizing I have been suffering from it, along with the insulin resistance it brings, my docs and I knew I had to change my way of eating. I had been struggling for years to lose weight with no luck. Since going low carb I have finally been able to shed weight. I saw this book in a thrift shop for a $1 and decided to read it again. It's not my plan of eating , but there is a bit of useful information [...]

    15. I listened to this in the car and found it very interesting. It gives a detailed explanation of how foods that raise your glucose levels (glycemic index) leave leftover glucose not used by the cells for energy, so it gets stored as fat. Having just taken college-level Molecular and Cell Biology last spring, I found it really intriguing. So I cut out most sugar and high glycemic index foods. Haven't lost any weight. So going to reduce fat intake as well - at least this way, I won't replace the fa [...]

    16. 4.0 - Sugar Busters is useful to me as a type 2 diabetic. It's observation of insulin as a creator of fat and our high American glycemic diets was enlightening. The book contains a food glycemic tables, helpful ways to eat the right foods, encourages light exercising at least four times a week, a 14 day menu plan, many low sugar recipes, list what foods which are better than others, and surprisingly, a list of desserts that are low in sugar. The book makes so much sense and offers a large variet [...]

    17. Oh, I just wanted to read a book about sugar and why not to eat it. On accident, this book turned out to be a diet book popular in New Orleans in the mid 90's. And lots of the nutritional information in it was wrong. Some parts were interesting. I even persevered to the final end.But really, unless you have unlimited amounts of time to waste reading old diet books, there are so many more valuable, correct, and up to date books out there. Dumb library for letting me check this out. They wasted my [...]

    18. A most interesting approach to dieting and maintenance. Like most diet books, though, the whole rationale and instructions could have been done in 20-30 pages. Instead we get Chapters on childhood obesity and other peripheral issues. The least valuable part of the book was the 100 pages of recipes from famous restaurants.I guess they have to bulk it up to make the cost appear fair.It is a good diet, though. I've lost 23 pounds in 3 months.

    19. For those who are pre-diabetic or diabetic, this book is easy to read and very practical. It gives the information needed about these conditions and what to do to control them or to not let them progress. Good foods are quite numerous; The bad foods list isn't that bad. Recipes are given for 14 days of meals that are easy to prepare. I think when I finally come to the point where I am totally ready to get off of sugar, this will be my-go text book.

    20. I finished this book in one sitting. I will admit I did not retain a lot of information because majority of it (the first part) was a health lesson on digestion, cardiovascular health, and diabetes. I did get a few pointers though. It taught me the foods to avoid (or restrict and that for weight loss sugar is the enemy not fats!

    21. Hands down, one of my favorite books about healthy eating. I probably reference this book at least one a week to someone who is sincerely trying to eat better. This is such a great and easy place to start. No counting calories. Just simple, mindful eating of complex carbs, protein, and fat. This book was low-carb before low-carb was even in vogue!

    22. One of my resolutions this year is to eat less sugar. I have a pretty bad sweet tooth that I need to control. I liked the overall message of the book but i really dragged at times and was tough to finish. It had a lot of parts that just didn't apply to me so it might be best if read as a reference book rather than a novel.

    23. Informative yer reader friendly. Premise of book logical. Have ordered the updated book and am going to eat accordingly to manage blood sugar and cholesterol.Note the authors stress you still must watch portion sizes and only eat lean meats. They reiterate this throughout the book and eating balance plates.

    24. Good stuff here that makes a lot of sense. Deprivation diets won't work for me and won't work for most people. This book, for the most part, gives you a way around deprivation while also giving you a roadmap to a healthier lifestyle. Some sections contain a lot of medical terminology, but readers can skip those parts and still get the benefit of the book.

    25. This is an old book (1995, I think) that I picked up at a Goodwill store over the holidays. Pretty basic stuff, but good emphasis on the fact that when it comes to weight management-insulin is THE enemy and strategies for minimizing its effects. Had some recipes in the back that looked pretty good that I may try.

    26. Very Informative.I am currently working on my on own lifestyle changes that include weight loss. I was diagnosed with MS in 2009 and have a regular exercise routine . I also try to watch my diet.This will help me to better identify what to purchase and provide a list to the shopper.

    27. The best book I've read on why we should eat a healthy, balanced diet and what that consists of. And what they say about increased energy and weight loss is true. I am already feeling the benefit of cutting sugar out of my diet.
