Synopsis: The perfect guide to getting healthy by kicking your sugar habit for good with 20 simple, sugar-free success strategies.

There’s no sugarcoating it: succumbing to sweets too often could damage your health. But to what extent? Most readers already know that succumbing to sweets too often can lead to obesity and diabetes. What many don't know, however, is that too many "quickie carbs" can bring on a host of other maladies-such as "brain fog," fatigue, mood swings, heart disease, and even cancer-from which millions may be suffering because of their sugar or carbohydrate habits.

In this engaging, jargon-free book, Connie Bennett and contributing author Dr. Stephen T. Sinatra bring you the shocking truth, backed by medical studies. With insights from thousands of physicians, nutritionists, researchers, and "sugar sufferers" worldwide, SUGAR SHOCK!™ will teach you how to kick the sugar habit for good.

“Spills the beans on the shocking impact of simple carbohydrates on aging and quality of life—a double whammy for humanity.”—Mehmet C. Oz, M.D., host of The Dr. Oz Show
