As an ICU RN, the number one precursor I see for strokes, vascular diseases, heart attacks, poor kidney function and many other illnesses is Diabetes. Our children are getting fatter and fatter and have a life expectancy that is shorter than their grandparents and parents. WHY? Because we have never understood the effect simple carbohydrates have on our bodies.

Diabetic education has previously focused on simple sugars only, not addressing simple carbohydrates and the effect they have on your blood sugar. This book explains why it is just as important to look at white rice, white potatoes, white bread, and white flour products as sugars! It is about time!

You don't need to be a diabetic to get a great deal of useful information from this book, in fact, I highly recommend it to anyone who is overweight or has a parent with adult onset diabetes, or has a child who is overweight. You will learn why you have that afternoon drop in energy, why the weight is not coming off even though you have decreased your calorie intact, why a plain baked potato raises your blood sugar, and what you can do to prevent your cells from becoming resistant to insulin, or to decrease that resistance if you already have it.

As others have stated, this is written in easy to understand language. It offers a lifestyle for good health, not a diet to follow till you lose a few pounds. If you are diabetic and don't have this information, you are cheating yourself of better health. If you are not diabetic and never want to be, this book has your answers. If your child is overweight, learn how to help them become healthier and more energetic while still eating great tasting food by making some healthier choices.

After a long, up and down battle with weight and food, I ballooned to a dangerous size that threatened my health. At 32, I was confused. I knew that it was harder to drop weight as one ages, but I wasn't that old. Worse still, I was hungry constantly. How could I lose weight if I literally couldn't stop thinking about food? I had forgotten what true hunger felt like.

Then I purchased The Sugar Solution. The first thing the book did was scare the crap out of me. I didn't realize how my eating habits literally endangered me. About 50 pages in, I began to realize that sugar was possibly keeping me from losing weight. It was affecting me on a cellular level, urging my cells to retain unneeded fat. It was also putting my arteries in severe risk of damage due to high blood pressure and unchecked sugar levels.

I began checking sugar content before I ate anything and was surprised to find how much sugar seemingly "safe" foods contained. Soon, I began to drop some weight. Amazingly, I found myself putting food away 3/4 into a meal. I began eating when I was actually hungry. A month and a half after reading the book, I am 25 pounds lighter and generally calmer. I don't suffer mood swings anymore--another symptom of blood sugar spikes.

My beef with this book is in the tone. The book was put together from pieces of magazine content, and it feels like it. Titles are consistently alliterate and tacky. Exclamation points should be used sparingly (or so I thought). After a few hundred pages of this, I began to get irritated, as the book felt less scientific and more corny.

Overall, I would absolutely suggest this book to people on the road to diabetes or people simply concerned about their health. For me, the culprit is sugar. If I can control my sugar, I can control my eating. Get healthy before it's too late.

Forty-five pounds shed and counting. I can't say things would have gone this smoothly if not for this book.

This is an excellent book for those who are having energy problems and not losing weight. I am not a classic binge eater, but I did not have the energy to do almost anything. I have weight to lose and nothing I was doing was working. I am a couple weeks into this book and I am feeling better already. My body-type swelling has gone down, I actually am getting up and doing things, etc. I have lose 4 lbs so far. I haven't lost weight in 4 years! This is a solution that is working for me. Although I am not a fan of the alternate sugars out there, I am using Stevia.

The approach proposed in "The Sugar Solution", by the editors of Prevention Magazine is comprehensive while not overwhelming the reader, taking you through a strategy that depends on better eating habits, an exercise routine and techniques to reduce stress.

The book brings the reader on board by proposing solutions that are manageable. For foods, they rely heavily on the Glycemic Index as the way to weigh meals as more or less appropriate to control your blood sugars. For exercising, they propose a scheme that doesn't mean you need to live in the gym, suggesing exercises that fit any lifestyle. And for stress, the same happens, and they offer advice that can be incorporated even in the most hectic work days.

All three components dealt with in the book have been proven to affect blood sugar values, ultimately leading to complications including but not limited to diabetes. So, in offering the Sugar Solution, the book deals a strong blow to the fundamental causes underlying America's current diabetes epidemic.
