Review of Beyond Sugar Shock by Connie Bennett.

1) Attractive cover grabs the attention of sugar lovers. I mean, there are cupcakes on there. Yummy!
2) As a nurse, I felt the book offered an excellent overview of the medical signs and symptoms related to hyperinsulinemia and the resulting hypoglycemia--what most are now calling prediabetes. The list of symptoms found on pages 3 and 4 gives one the idea of how metabolically pervasive carbohydrates are to the human body. The irritability and food panic is recognizable to anyone with hypoglycemia. "I need food now!" Bennett hits on the diseases caused by sugar on page 7. Blindness should have been an addition here.
3) All of chapter 3 is information based on science and medicine. The problem here, as I noted throughout the book, is that the author frowns upon so many foods---dairy, grains, artificial sweeteners, salts, high-fat meats, processed foods, etcetera---that one is left wondering what remains to actually eat.
4) The Sweet Success Stories told by real sugar addicts are the highlight of the book. I identified with several of these people.
5) I enjoyed the quiz in chapter two; however, some of the questions focused too much on candy and not on the other carbs we so love: pasta, bread, cereal...
6) Tips like using a journal and employing question words--who, what, where, when, why, and how--would come in handy for most folks trying to make drastic changes.
7) The book offers great information on hidden sugars in foods as well as on various forms of exercise. Go Zumba!
8) Helpful section on portion sizes begins on page 193. Sadly many foods are not discussed at all. What about replacements for salad dressings that are no longer recommended?
9) Fair price for the content.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I ordered this book though the Amazon Vine program. I thought it would give me good tips on conquering my devotion to the sweet taste. But alas!, all I found was a hystrionic, almost manic coach throwing at me a multitude of suggestions. There is way too much hyperbole, both for the positive and negative. The overly cheerful creation of words, the suggestions to constantly repeat your affirmation (up to 100 times per day), the affirmative visual aids (post-it notes posted everywhere), prayer, Success Strut, Benefits List, seeking doctors and therapists to help you understand your addiction, meditation, journaling, and shameless constant self-promotion drove me nuts. Here's an example from page 79

"Before You Head into Week Two, Have You Laid the Groundwork for Your Success?
- Are you boogeing to your Woo-Hoo, Feel Good Theme Song every day and doing the Success Strut?
- Do you boldly pronounce your affirmations frequently throughout your day?
- Do you regularly See, Feel, & Act As If You've Already Won?
- Are you looking at your vision board several minutes a day?
- Are you regularly doing Sugary Soul Searching?
- Are you often asking yourself the 5 W's & 1 H?
- Did you prepare your "Why I Need to Quit" and Benefits List, and are you taking it with you for inspiration wherever you go?
- Have you made an appointment with a sugar-savvy doctor yet?
- Have you found a supportive therapist, health coach, life coach, or nutritionist?
- Have you joined the free Beyond Sugar Shock Freedom SparkTeam on [...] and started chatting with us?
Congratulations! You've Completed Week One."

How can one take this author seriously? The whole book is full of this kind of nonsence. Even the recipes are ridiculous.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have type 2 diabetes and gave up sugar about 5 months ago. I wish I'd done it sooner, and I ordered this book hoping it would include a lot of helpful recipes and might be something helpful I could give to others to encourage and equip them on the journey. Reading this book was the closest I have come to torture in a long time. The author's rah-rah cheerleader tone was a real turn-off to me and her over-emphasis on positive thinking and self-talk was neither helpful nor valuable to me. Included in the book is a six week plan to get rid of sugar addiction:

Week 1-Change your thinking. Okay there is some good stuff here about evaluating your sugar consumption, but also a lot of positive thinking and self-talk drivel.

Week 2-Work on your body. More positive thinking and self-talk drivel and some questionable advice about reducing your sugar intake. Among her suggestions for reducing your sugar consumption. Instead of eating sweets all day long, eat 4-5 bites twice-a-day of a dessert of your own choosing. Really?!? Talk about an invitation to fail!

Week 3-Work on your "spirit." Again a mixed bag. Some good stuff here about getting enough sleep and getting more benefit from exercise and more positive thinking and self-talk drivel.

Week 4-Work on your body again. If you still even remember you own this book, here in chapter 8, you start changing your diet. Finally a content-rich chapter on changing ones diet. Some good stuff here about all the good things one can eat and a list of the most important foods to buy organic if you can't afford to buy all organic.

Week 5-Work on your mind again. Some okay info here about saying "no" to sweets in creative ways, but come on!
