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

The Prediabetes Detox: A Whole-Body Program to Balance Your Blood Sugar, Increase Energy, and Reduce Sugar Cravings - Sarah Cimperman,Walter J. Crinnion, ND As someone who has a disease that mimics pre-diabetes in a lot of ways, this is a book I was highly interested in reading for personal reasons.

And I am really glad I did. The book was not just a 'how-to' on diets. It was an in-depth look at what pre-diabetes is, what detox is, and a breakdown of the diet, supplements, lifestyle changes, and detoxing your home.

Many of these changes are holistic and require a shift in lifestyle. However, the information is well documented and cited, and the diet is very similar to other no sugar diets I've read about.

In addition to this invaluable information, there are also some yummy recipes included. I do think I will adopt some of these things into my life. It isn't a big shift from South Beach, but does have a lot of other useful information on a holistic approach.
