Read the original book "Fat Chance"
on April 9, 2015
I was extremely disappointed in this book. It is as if Dr. Lustig didn't even read the recipes having someone else create them for the book. I have been very impressed with Dr. Lustig's work, his TED talks, his adamant confrontation of the sugar and food giants. Yet, recipe after recipe contained way beyond Dr. Lustig's personal recommendation as to the amount of sugar to consume on a daily basis. I was expecting to find a good series of quality recipes contained within the suggestions of sugar intake. Instead, more than one recipe had gram after gram of excess sugar.
That said, please consider buying his original book "Fat Chance" and listening to his TED talks. There is extreme value in what he is saying. I think of him every time I go to the grocery store including the health food grocers reading label after label with shock.
