I can’t understand some of the negative reviews. I found the book to be extremely helpful in every respect. She offers specific ideas for analyzing your sugar tendencies, motivation, handy lists of what can aid in recovery, etc. This is from a person who understands the addiction process, as she has been through it herself. As far as comments on the cover, Connie has mentioned in other places that she realizes the cover may not have been the wisest choice, and that some people have chosen to cover it up because it bothers them, and she has asked specifically for feedback on that issue. I have always found Connie and her writing to be upbeat and inspiring. I downloaded the book as soon as it was available, and I wasn’t disappointed.
I loved the book “Sugar Shock”, which was a major eye opener for me! Stuff I suspected was happening to me when eating sugar but never really did any research on it. I am really looking forward to delving into this book, “Beyond Sugar Shock” to get a more in depth view of what sugar is doing to my body and how to combat it. I have started reading it and love what I have read so far. Everyone who is eating sugar right now needs to read this book and be aware of what sugar is doing to them!
This book is a great contribution to the field of weight loss. As well as explaining sugar addiction, it gives the reader concrete steps to take to bolster confidence and increase self-worth BEFORE you remove sugar from your diet – much less painful, and much more likely to succeed. It also gives the reader understanding of how addiction occurs, and the steps to take to avoid cross-addiction and positive steps to remove addiction from your life completely,
