My summer driving audiobook was Living Low Carb by Johnny bowden PhD. This is another book that makes the case for the low carb lifestyle and addresses all the skeptical questions you may have. It's a good book that covers all the angles. He has a section where he critiques other diet books Like Atkins, Zone and The Biggest Loser. He has makes a lot of suggestions....maybe too many. Sometimes I felt he was contradicting himself. It's full of useful info and probably good to have as a reference.
Year of No Sugar- This book is fun. A Year of No Sugar is a "delightfully readable account of how [one family] survived a yearlong sugar-free diet and lived to tell the tale...A funny, intelligent, and informative memoir." ―Kirkus
It's dinnertime. Do you know where your sugar is 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 opened 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 quit 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.
Year of No Sugar is what the conversation about "kicking the sugar addiction" looks like for a real American family―a roller coaster of unexpected discoveries and challenges.
"As an outspoken advocate for healthy eating, I found Schaub's book to shine a much-needed spotlight on an aspect of American culture that is making us sick, fat, and unhappy, and it does so with wit and warmth."―Suvir Sara, author of Indian Home Cooking
"Delicious and compelling, her book is just about the best sugar substitute I've ever encountered."―Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ron Powers
