I took the plunge and bought this book because I knew sugar was the culprit. I am halfway through the book but started keeping track of my sugar right away and kept it below 25g perday. I have been feeling a bit tired and sometimes woozy(as I transition back to being a fat burner instead of a sugar burner), but overall, I feel great. The biggest shock was that by keeping my carbs under 100g and my sugar under 25g, I am not hungry and feel a lot better. When I cut down earlier to lose some weight but didn't pay attention to sugar levels, I got really hungry and irritable.I guess keeping sugar low keeps hunger/cravings away because it is working for me.
What is great is that I will have a tool for the rest of my life if I fall back into old habits and allow the weight to creep up again. I can imagine not doing that with how good I am feeling right now.
The only problem I have had and it has frustrated me, is that the resources link with seemingly lots of resources, doesn't work for me. I sent my email in many times but never got a reply with the resources link. If it gets fixed, I will come back and update you so you will know how to fix it too.
My twin sister also started the diet four weeks after me, and it's amazing how much weight and inches we have lost. I thought I might have overwhelming cravings during the first two phases of the diet and was very surprised to find that I actually had none. That's not to say I don't wish I could eat a slice of bread every now and then, but I know if I do, I'm going to suffer extreme malaise and fatigue.
One thing to keep in mind, is this a change in how and what you eat - for life. So you do have to be committed to following the diet, then maintaining. Another plus for me, is that fruit now tastes so much sweeter.
What have I liked about the Sugar Impact Diet? How has it worked for us?
1. The gradual reduction of sugar from the diet over several weeks. I did not have the headaches and general yuck feeling of cutting sugar out cold turkey.
2. Having a protein shake for breakfast with in 1 hour of waking up. This has been easy for us-and very yummy! I was never a breakfast eater, but I look forward to my shake every morning and have gotten adventurous-trying spinach and avocado in them. This is a habit I plan to keep for the rest of my life.
3. I like how the book is written. When I read it, I feel like JJ is talking-not like a text book. I've seen other reviewers complain that the book repeats the same things over and over. I did not feel like that was the case-sometimes it is worth hearing those things over so you'll remember them.
4. I've found several of the recipes that I have made every week (Chicken noodle soup, Chili, Lentils alla Rustica) and love. Some of them are intimidating to me, but I've been able to try some new ingredients that will continue to be staples at my house.
The most important thing the Sugar Impact Diet taught me was that much of the "healthy eating" education taught to me growing up in the "low-fat" diet age is actually making us fat by replacing fat with sugar and wrecking our health. The Sugar Impact Diet has made it simple for us to make changes to eliminate hidden sugars from our lives and drop pounds.
I can not recommend this diet highly enough!
**Update (3/5/2015):Still going strong! I have lost 50 pounds and my husband has lost 30 pounds. We are just beginning to get into the exercise portion. I love that I can get my workout done in 15 minutes or less. This has been the easiest eating plan I have ever followed-you CAN do it!**

I must admit, when JJ said she would cure me of my addiction I simply did not believe her, no way would I be like the people in the book but I am and I can't believe it.
I have always been slim but as the years progressed I saw myself go up in size slowly but surely, after reading this book and following her advice I dropped 4 dress sizes and I am now a size 8 and over 12 months later I have not put a single pound back on and I feel amazing! I am a 57 year old woman and have never felt so good! Give yourself the best present ever, get the book, put it into practice and see the results for yourself!
Great book on sugar, it's only been a week if that and I have lost one pound already.
A must. Love her 4X4 15 min work out.
