Sugar Busters!

Shopper's Guide

Chapter One


We are going to propose a way of eating that will allow you to eat most foods in normal quantities, possibly even in larger quantities than you presently consume. You can have three full meals a day and even appropriate snacks. There will not be many things you cannot eat, but there will be certain combinations you should definitely avoid. What you need to avoid most will be foods or combinations of foods that require the secretion of large amounts of insulin to regulate your blood sugar. By simply doing this, you can get slimmer and healthier simultaneously....

Let's get to the point: Sugar is toxic! Sugar? Some sugar? Most sugar? All sugar? Toxic? Well, we will say that refined sugar in any significant quantity is toxic to many human bodies, and it certainly helps make many bodies fat. Moreover, significant quantities of sugar are derived in our digestive system from carbohydrates and starches. Certain of these foods cause a definite strain on the health of the body, probably the mind, and certainly the waistline. Fructose, sugar in fruit, will not normally hurt you, but eaten at the wrong time or in the wrong combinations can create both digestive and metabolic problems. Therefore, what we are recommending is a low-sugar diet. Surprisingly, that cannot be achieved simply by putting away your sugar canister.

How can sugar, something that tastes so good and has been fed so readily to most of us since childhood by our most trusted person on earth, our own mother, possibly be bad for us? Aside from a few bad direct effects, such as dissolving our teeth, sugar largely acts as a stimulus in causing our pancreas gland to secrete one of our body's most powerful hormones, insulin!

Insulin has some good effects on our bodies, such as regulating our blood sugar level, but the bad effects caused by the overproduction of this megahormone are certainly impressive and will be described at length later. Succinctly, insulin causes our bodies to store excess sugar as fat. Insulin further prohibits the mobilization of previously stored fat, even if one is on a rather skimpy, but glucose-generating, diet. And, most significantly, insulin signals our livers to make another big "C" word, cholesterol.

With the SUGAR BUSTERS! meal plan, you get four-star recipes from New Orleans's top restaurants for the most succulent foods imaginable...


Beef Tenderloins with Marchand de Vin Sauce
Shrimp Ravigote
Confit of Duck
Venison Tenderloin in Beer Glaze
Lamb Loin Provencale
Pan-Roasted Filet Mignon Stuffed with Maytag Blue Cheese
Warm Haricot Vert and Bacon Salad
Shrimp, Crab, and Okra Gumbo
Crab-and-Shrimp Stuffed Eggplant
...even Hamburgers!

    This diet really works

    The book is so helpful and easy to understand. My husband and I started in January and we lost so much weight. I was a size 14 and currently a size 10. My husband was a size 42 and is now between 36 and 38. Buy this book it really helps.

    Eliminates Confusion

    This shopper's guide is really handy. I mean, if you don't care so much as to how and why the diet works, but know you want to do it, get this book. You just go down the aisles and immediately know what you can and cannot eat. And its small size makes it so you don't have to lug around the big hard cover book to be healthy at the grocery store. Definitely worth investing in if you are going to do or are already on Sugar Busters.

    Excellent companion to the Sugar Busters Book

    This really helps when you are shopping, and trying to decide what you should and shouldnt eat. It has a little more detail then the actual book. I really advise this if you are trying to do the sugar busters diet.
