Sugar Crush by Dr. Richard P. Jacob & Raquel Baldelomar
Sugar Crush: How to Reduce Inflammation, Reverse Nerve Damage, and Reclaim Good Health - Richard Jacoby,Raquel Baldelomar

Sugar Crush exposes the shocking truth about how a diet high in sugar, processed carbohydrates, and wheat compresses and damages the peripheral nerves of the body, leading to pain, numbness, and tingling in the hands and feet, along with a host of related conditions, including migraines, gall bladder disease, and diabetes. If you suffer from ailments your doctors can’t seem to diagnose or help—mysterious rashes, unpredictable digestive problems, debilitating headaches, mood and energy swings, constant tiredness—nerve compression is the likely cause.

 

Sugar Crush includes a quiz in the book to assess if sugar is harming your body. I answered Yes to almost every question but two. I've been to the doctor many times concerning the symptoms I have but nothing has ever been discussed about nutrition or how much sugar I consume on a daily basis through sweets or processed foods. I started making small changes while reading this book (I checked the book out from the library 3 weeks ago) and am happy to report that some of my symptoms are already reduced. 

 

The author goes into great deal on how sugar is harming your body and is the cause to many health conditions but only spent one chapter on the diet that will help you quit sugar.  I am hoping the author writes a second book to go into more detail for Plan A: The Ketogenic Diet or Plan B: The Blood Sugar Regulation Diet.  Plan B is the one that I chose so now I'm looking for books to help me regulate blood sugar and kick the sugar habit.

 

It's a great read to understand how sugar is harming your body

Anti Inflammatory Diet: How to Fight Inflammation, Heart Disease and Chronic Pain just by Eating Delicious Food (anti inflammatory diet, health, weight ... disease, clean eating, healthy eating,)
Anti Inflammatory Diet: How to Fight Inflammation, Heart Disease and Chronic Pain just by Eating Delicious Food (anti inflammatory diet, health, weight ... disease, clean eating, healthy eating,) - Audrey Jones This book felt like a long leaflet to me. It was more of an introduction to this way of eating instead of detailed instructions. Were there recipes or a suggested meal-planned-week, I'd give it a higher rating. I hoped for considerably more information.

Stop Inflammation Now!: A Step-by-Step Plan to Prevent, Treat, and Reverse Inflammation - the Leading Cause of Heart Disease and Related Conditions
Stop Inflammation Now! - Richard Fleming This book has a wealth of information on how to correct heart disease, diabetes, and all the diseases of the developed nations. Its plan is simple and easy to follow. A number of recipes are included, but you don't really need many recipes to be able to cook the simple, hearty, and healthful foods on this plan.

Phase I is entirely plant-based consisting of whole foods. You're given way more food than I could eat. 12 to 15 servings of fruits and vegetables a day. At this stage, the whole grains are left off in order to facilitate rapid weight loss and the fastest return to ideal lab values on the 12 factors that contribute to heart disease and ill-health. Once the values are corrected, phase II lets you branch out and allows some lean meats as well as more nuts and whole grains. I think I'll skip the meat when the time comes.

I've just changed to a whole foods plant based diet, and am planning to transition to the phase I diet described in this book to get my cholesterol and triglycerides in a better range. Once I'm where I should be on all my values, I'll add back more nuts and grains to keep from losing too much weight. It's amazing how much better I feel already. I'm very thankful that I've found this healthy way to eat. I wish I'd found it years ago.
