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.
"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)

Smart read for ridding sugar from your diet
Yes, I loved the idea of having not sugar for a year. Using her family with the project was very relatable because I myself would love to try something like that. I would actually listen to this book again for her ideas and tips of what she did to get through the year.
Eve is honest and easy to relate to. She write's well and with Hillary Huber reading it I enjoyed this a great deal. Nutrition is a topic I am always interested in.
Yes, and they all sound great.
It made me really consider how horrible sugar is and how much we don't need it in our diets. It really made me think and possibly want to try something like her experiment.
Eve has a website that is also a nice read as well.

Too obsessed with sugar, too free with exceptions
