This book isn't going to change your life, but it will be a constant companion to you as you let go of past failures and start to discover that you have the power to change it yourself. You'll find that the experiences Karly writes about in her unassuming, insightful style parallel your own, and by the time she begins sharing tools for breaking the cycle, you'll know that you've found your fellow traveler. This is someone who has walked a mile in your shoes and discovered out how to run in them. At least one person in the world has found out how to turn a disability into an asset that continues to pay out dividends. And one person is all we need to know that we're not alone.
I started reading this book on May 25, 2009. Memorial day. An extended family's worth of deserts were prepared for the event, including a couple of my favorites. It was the perfect opportunity to start change.
I was only a few chapters into the book, but already my pattern of sugar consumption had a name. When dinner rolled around I thought to myself "okay, I'm not committing to this change forever, but maybe I'll see what it feels like to go without sugar tonight." It wasn't my first time going sugar-free, so I was wary of broken long-term commitments that would only later become a nail in the coffin of my resolve. But that evening alone, I probably make the conscious choice to go without sugar 50 or 100 times. And I felt good.Read more ›
It wasn't a question for me of what to eat, but why do I eat? Sugar is my "drug of choice". If I start eating it, the uncontrollable cravings take over and I head into a downward spiral. I go into depression and life becomes very difficult. I carry around a constant feeling of dread and anxiety and it seems near to impossible to break the cravings long enough to get off the sugar. When I abstain from sugar my energy levels increase, the cravings disappear, my mood elevates, my thinking becomes clear and life just becomes much more fun to live. When I found Karly's website and connected with others around the world who were faced with the same struggle I was elated. Someone finally understood my struggle.
This book outlines the inner changes that can be made to find peace on an emotional and spiritual level, thus filling our needs with something other than sugar. It's not a quick fix, but it's a journey well worth taking. Her book is worth the price and I highly recommend it.

I like this book and found it helpful. I don't agree w/ all ideas but the author is encouraging, not pretensious, like talking to a friend.Published 5 months ago by Christine
I felt like this book was more satirical than giving me fact or strategies I could use quick enough. There are too many stories and didn't really pertain to me and my situation. Read morePublished 11 months ago by anonimous
