I have been on all kinds of diets before (who hasn't) and every time some Doctor tried to explain to concepts to me they generally lasted only short periods since the darn diets just didn't make any sense, and it just felt like pieces were missing in the overall puzzle of chemistry in they body related to proteins, carbohydrates, sugars, chloesterol, good bad etc etc.....
What a great surprise this book was to me. Not only does it tie all the pieces together and explain its' diet as the 'Sugarbusters way of eating is roughly 40 percent carbohydrates 30 percent protein and 30 percent fat, it is a balanced diet' that makes overall sense.....
The authors go to great detail to explain the functions of the pancreas, the purposes of insulin, glucanol and exactly what happens when you eat a high protein meal vs a high cargohydrate meal....
For example, the book explains that "The glycemic index (GI) is a measure of how much of a specific amount of ingested carbohydrate (usually 50 grams) will cause a persons blood sugar to rise and remain elevated over time relative to the effect on blood sugar of the same amount of pure glucose (which is assigned a GI of 100)... NOW HERE's THE SHOCKER FOR ME the book continues that to "compare the potatoes blood stimulating effect realtive to table sugar is that it would take 118 grams of sugar to have the same impact as one potato.Read more ›
Almost instantly, I noticed I had more energy and stamina, which was important, working and being in school both full-time. Add to this I was eating more - and more frequently - than I had been, possibly ever. The range of what I was eating was diverse and delicious.
What I was not prepared for was the weight loss. In less than 3 months, I had dropped 27 pounds and several inches off my waist, settling at 163 pounds and a 33" waistline. And though I weighed a full 20 pounds more than I did when running cross-country in high school, I had a far lower bodyfat percentage. Simply eating correctly (for me, I will admit) allowed me to possess the best health and physique of my life.
I stayed with the SB way for several years, but eventually allowed the saboteurs (bagels, white rice, pasta, sugars, potatoes, and other of what i call "crappy carbs") to gain entry again into my life. I suffered the consequences, adding pounds over the years. So why did I stop eating the SB way? Stupidity, in a nutshell.
In the interim, I'd tried variations on Atkins, seeking to eliminate most carbohydrate from my diet, regardless of the quality of that carbohydrate.Read more ›
The biggest problem I have had is that the two suits I bought right before I started don't fit. Lukily I had some suits from earlier thinner times to wear.
I don't really envision ever stopping eating this way. You can go out to dinner, eat full and hearty meals and maintain yourself. I definitely let myself indulge on occasion with "BAD" things that are worth "cheating" with.
I have already given this book out to more than 10 people and the cumulative weight loss is very impressive.
If you want all the scientific reasoning behind the diet, buy the full books. However, if you are more interested in the how than the why - all you need is this guide.
Best of luck - one day soon you hear someone say they can't have nuts because of the fat while they eat white bread. You can chuckle to yourself - It isn't the fat that makes you fat it is the insulin!
I have been following Sugar Busters for 2 1/2 years and have lost over 50 lbs. I believe that the new edition makes a convincing argument for why Sugar Busters is not a low-carb diet and should not be lumped in with Atkins, Protein Power, and other low-carb diets. If you are looking for a nutritional plan to help bring in a healthier and leaner new year, then the New Sugar Busters may be just what you need!
