Overall, this book was disappointing. The book starts off well, promising to identify one's type of sugar addiction and then offer solutions. There are some good points made, and things I will follow-up on. However, in its efforts to be a gimmicky "workbook", the book shortchanges the readers on important details and specifics. Just a few examples: in the discussion of sugar alcohols, there is absolutely no mention of xylitol, which is probably one of the most widely used sugar alcohols in the world (particularly in the Scandinavian countries) and readily available in North America. There is no mention in the book of vegetarian diets, leaving some of us mystified as to how to modify his prescriptions for meat, fish, eggs, and seafood (and of course, I'm not even mentioning the extremely well-documented negative health consequences of the amount of animal products he suggests, including the effects of excess protein). He does not discuss the effect of polished white rice on the body, which in my limited understanding acts in a way similar to white sugar and white flour.

Some of his discussions are simplistic. When describing how walking burns calories, he uses a straight one-to-one ratio, without clearly explaining how exercise (or the lack of it) changes one's metabolic rate, thus producing a multiplier effect on calorie burning. And his prescription to "eat more salt" left me dumbfounded. Yes, individuals react to sodium differently, but such blanket advice is simply dangerous.

Furthermore, and without comment on the products' merits, the book is suffused with not-so-subtle advertisements for various products sold or promoted by the author.

Format: Paperback
This book has changed the way I look at food, and I am pretty excited about it. I am ready to lose weight, to feel better and to have a better life.

Having just finished reading it, I haven't started yet, but I have faith that I will. This is not an unrealistic plan and there are no specific weight loss goals or promises. Nowhere in this book does he say "You will lose 30 pounds in the first 4 months-guaranteed!" or anything like that, because those kind of claims are either BS or based on unhealthy weight loss goals.

This is not a diet book. It's not about following a plan to reach a set weight and then stopping. This is about changing your life and your lifestyle for good. It's about saying good bye to some things and adding a lot of other things in.

I thought this would just be a preachy book telling me what a bad person I am for eating brownies and how I need to do better. Instead there isn't any judgment. I never felt like he was accusing me of being fat because of what I've done. Instead, everything is very logical, just giving info about how the body processes things, how people feel when they are suffering from sugar addiction, and what people can do to get healthy again.

The book was broken up into chunks which made it very readable. First it talks about sugar addiction and you figure out what kind of sugar addict you are (there are different kinds based on what your body is doing that makes you want to eat sugar).Then there are treatment plans for each kind of addiction, and it's not just stopping eating candy. There's medicines and natural health stuff to do, and things you can take like vitamins and things to help your body do its work better.

Format: Paperback
I just finished reading Beat Sugar Addiction Now! And it definitely has me convinced.
I had a hard time believing how perfectly I fit the profile for a person with rampant and serious yeast overgrowth. Yet even now I am having a hard time agreeing to give up the sugar. Just thinking about a world without my daily Starbucks drink and without my favorite cookies is a sad thought.

Of course this just goes to show that sugar really is a drug, because how can I still want to eat something when everything I have just read proves, without a shadow of a doubt, that every time I eat it I am making myself sicker and feeding the yucky fungus that has pervaded my body.

I guess I need to do one last hurrah and then bid farewell to my favorite sugary snacks. I know this book favors a gradual cutback and not a shock to the system, but at this point I do eat so many sweets that even a cutback will make a big difference in the amount of stuff I eat. I am trying to figure out what to stop eating first, but I know I need to take that first step and this was truly the book that showed me that I have a problem.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Carbohydrate craving is a major cause of obesity. Dr. Teitelbaum is the world's foremost chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia expert and has encountered the four main causes of sugar and carbohydrate addiction in many of these patients. The four main types of sugar addiction are easily identified with the questionaires in this workbook. More importantly, effective treatments for the four main causes of sugar addiction are explained.

I was especially pleased to read the explanation of estrogen deficiency as a cause of low serotonin and carbohydrate craving. Estrogen is needed to open the female Serotonin receptor and many estrogen deficient women are self treating their Serotonin deficiency with carbohydrates which provide a brief Serotonin increase.

Sadly, over publicized, poorly designed studies using overdoses of horse estrogens (Premarin) have misled many people to overgeneralize problems with horse estrogens, to human estrogens.

I agree with Dr. Teitelbaum that they are hidden causes of sugar addiction.

This book is very readable, even for non scientists. Dr. Teitelbaum reveals he was once a sugar addict and provides sugar addicts an effective compassionate solution in this book.

If you are a sugar addict read this book and take your life back.
