Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Ever heard of a fat caveman? Today's dieters should follow their ancestors' lead, proclaim the authors of this update to their bestselling original. For hundreds of thousands of years, the human diet consisted of unrefined foods that were high in fiber, low in sugar and low on the glycemic index. Eating similarly now-avoiding white flour, white potatoes, white rice, sugar, soft drinks and highly processed foods in general (the "basic principles" of a diet that's been "field-tested by the human digestive system throughout the eons")-will help people lose weight and keep it off, the authors argue. Their reasoning is sound (high blood sugar triggers the release of insulin, the "fat-storage hormone" and the "CEO of metabolism"; the less the body lives in fat storage mode, the better), and the lifestyle they propose is simple (though it goes beyond just chucking the 5-lb bag of Domino into the trash). Try eating six small meals a day, don't eat after 8 p.m.; read the labels of all breads and cereals to find the hidden sugars and stock your refrigerator with vegetables and lean meats, the authors say. In chapters that are straightforward and focused, the authors consider childhood obesity and diabetes, discuss artificial sweeteners and alcohol, offer recipes from restaurants around the country and answer FAQs from Sugar Busters everywhere. For those with the willpower to cut out the convenience foods, this will be a helpful guide to eating better.

About a month ago, in an effort at preventitive medicine to lower my cholestorol and resulting high blood sugars, my GP sent me to a cardiovascular surgeon. Well as a person that rarely has gone to doctors I wasn't exactly excited what this guy told me, but, when I asked him to explain what kind of a diet or program I should follow he just said buy the book Sugar Busters and follow what it says .....
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.

I happened upon the original incarnation of this title in mid 1998, when looking for a healthful alternative to the fast-food lifestyle I'd been living in my early-mid 20s. At 6'2" and 190 pounds, I was not searching to lose weight. Rather I was concerned about what toll eating on-the-run had taken on my body. I had tried the typically recommended low-fat way of eating for several years while in college and knew it did not work for me; I'd had several odd health problems related to the sheer lack of fat in my diet. After reading a quick and (rare) dispassionate review of SugarBusters! (SB), I decided to give it a go.
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.

I have been eating the way the book suggests for almost two months. I have lost 15 lbs. with VERY little effort. Some of the comments from other reviewers refer to the books lack of data or specific brands. However, this is what makes the diet so powerful. You don't need to count calories or hunt for specific products. Just eat three meals a day from the large number of items in the book and the weight drops off.
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!

The New Sugar Busters! is more than an expansion of the original book. The authors take what was, five years ago, a radical approcach to weight loss, and back it up with more thorough explanations of how and why a low glycemic diet is best for weight loss. The new book does nothing to change the basic approach to a low-sugar, correct carbohydrate lifestyle, but it does offer additional information based on the scientific evidence that now supports the basic premise of Sugar Busters!
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!
