    Beating Sugar Addiction For Dummies. This book is down to eart

    Beating Sugar Addiction For Dummies.

    This book is down to earth in it's approach to obtaining and maintaining a healthy weight and lifestyle.
    The author shows knowledge of and compassion for people with sugar and food addiction encouraging some to seek professional help to achieve a whole and balanced life. I liked the book especially the four quizzes which help me identify my personal struggle and gave advise on how to more forward. I have been following this advise and losing three pounds a week without pills starving counting points or over exercising. One just can't argue with success!
    I give this 4 stars
