If you're reading this review, it means that have recognized that something is out of balance in your life and it has something to do with sugar. You're probably at a breaking point. You know something needs to change, but don't know where to start. You're about to begin a journey, and you're looking for a fellow traveler who knows the way.

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.

I have spent the last 40 years looking for relief from my sugar addiction. I have done endless searches on the internet looking for help. Then in 2009 another search for "sugar addiction" came up with Karly's website. I joined, read the Overcoming Sugar Addiction online book and felt like I had "come home". She spoke right to my needs and addressed what needed to change on an emotional and spiritual level. It just felt right.

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.

Sugar addiction is a common problem that is greatly overlooked. (YES - even for us MEN!) I've struggled with it for years, not knowing that something like this even existed. I saw a news segment regarding sugar addiction one day and it all started making sense. I immediately found Karly's book online, and for the first time in my life, I understood what was happening to me. "Overcoming Sugar Addiction" helped me understand my problem, and gave me the power to take control of it. Are you a "slave to the crave?" Get this book!

I read Karly's book online about 2 years ago after googling 'sugar addiction' - I was so impressed and happy to have found another person who had the same problem as I. After downloading her book, I immediately put it in a binder and began lugging it with me everywhere I went. At first, I thought this would be the latest and greatest in my quest for the ultimate diet. In my initial excitement and motivation, I was able to quit sugar for 6 months and lost 15 pounds. But then, over a Labor Day weekend at the beach, I thought "how bad would it be to have this one dish of ice cream?" Thus began my downward spiral into complete sugar addiction once again, which lasted for well over a year. Needless to say, I gained all the weight back and more. In August 2009, I enrolled in Karly's online "quit sugar" teleclass, while I was still eating sugar, since I was quickly approaching the desperation stage. The teleclasses were an excellent supplement to the information in her book, and having others in the class with me from all over the country made me quickly realize 2 things - one, I am not alone, and two - quitting sugar will NOT be easy. It wasn't until the 5th or 6th class that I felt like I had no choice but to try again - at this point, I was eating candy for lunch and ice cream for dinner, not to mention feeling drugged and fat and disgusted. I started again and have been sugar-free now for 1 year.Read more ›
