wonderful sugar addicts companion! Great book!!!
on July 1, 2012
Am I a sugar addict? Yes. I have over 20 "anti-sugar" books - and continue to look for support. This book is not a medical book describing what happens when sugar enters your body. It doesn't give you percentages and graphs and charts. What it DOES do is give you wonderful advice for getting sugar free, detoxing and staying sugar free. The author gives advice on coping with the physical addiction as well as the emotional addition. It's well written in a very tender and compassionate way.
Some "anti-sugar" books talk down to the audience. "Just give up sugar" "stop eating it and find something else to do with your time", "just brush your teeth". Books like this make me feel like the author has no clue what its like to be addicted, allergic or sensitive to sugar. Karly Pitman is extremely empathetic and writes her book in such a way that comforts, educates and inspires.
