Publisher's Summary

Where is your sugar coming from? Most likely everywhere. Sure, it's in ice cream and cookies, but what scared Eve O. Schaub was the secret world of sugar - hidden in bacon, crackers, salad dressing, pasta sauce, chicken broth, and baby food. With her eyes open by the work of obesity expert Dr. Robert Lustig and others, Eve challenged her husband and two school-age daughters to join her on a quest to eat no added sugar for an entire year. Along the way, Eve uncovered the real costs of our sugar-heavy American diet including diabetes, obesity, and increased incidences of health problems such as heart disease and cancer. The stories, tips, and recipes she shares throw fresh light on questionable nutritional advice we've been following for years and show that it is possible to eat at restaurants and go grocery shopping - with less and even no added sugar.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.


What the Critics Say

"The diary I wish I had kept...the adventures of her family, the roadblocks they encountered, and the sheer daily difficulty of overcoming a national obsession." (From the foreword by David Gillespie, author of Sweet Poison)

Should be compulsory reading

Amazing just as an anthropological study of what the food industry in the US is doing to the population. I've worked in advertising for many years and seen the destruction caused by these massive brands. The peer pressure to consume toxic food. A very important book and should be a warning to Europe which is next in line for US style obesity.
