In this new edition of the bestselling Get the Sugar Out , nationally renowned nutritionist and well-known author Ann Louise Gittleman explains that sugar not only contributes to weight gain but also to mood swings, weakened immunity, diabetes, some cancers, and cardiovascular disease. Here she offers 501 simple, resourceful, and practical tips for cutting sugar from your diet, giving you the knowledge and inspiration you need to live a healthier life. A few of Gittleman's basic ways to cut sugar include:

* Eat more meals at home, so you can oversee the ingredients and avoid hidden sugars
* If you have a sweet tooth, try tricking it by chewing on a cinnamon stick
* Be a food detective; don't trust "sugar free" or "fat free" labels
* Cut down on salt not only to be healthier but because it helps cut out sugar cravings
* Don't exchange sugar for artificial sweeteners; as you'll find out here, many are harmful

With type II diabetes at an all-time high, cutting sugar from your diet is imperative. Get the Sugar Out is your solution for treatment and prevention: a unique, practical guide to a healthy and happy low-sugar lifestyle.

Highly recommended..This is indeed an eye opener on how we as a nation are drowning ourselves in sugar. Since reading this book i have become absolutely more sugar-aware and I make better choices for my overall health. Sugar has serious side effects! its time we all cut back! (might I add, that I lost tremendous weight just by reducing sugar)
