Health and Nutrition Reading
I Quit Sugar, Sarah Wilson
“I Quit Sugar” is week-by-week guide to quitting sugar to lose weight, boost energy, and improve your looks, mood, and overall health, with 108 sugar free recipes. Sarah Wilson thought of herself as a relatively healthy eater. She didn’t realize how much sugar was hidden in her diet, or how much it was affecting her well-being. When she learned that her sugar consumption could be the source of a lifetime of mood swings, fluctuating weight, sleep problems, and thyroid disease, she knew she had to make a change. What started as an experiment to eliminate sugar, both the obvious and the hidden kinds, soon became a way of life and now Sarah shows you how you can quit sugar too: Â follow a flexible and very doable 8-week plan, overcome cravings, make food you’re excited to eat with these 108 recipes for detox meals, savory snacks, and sweet treats from Sarah Wilson and contributors including Gwyneth Paltrow, Curtis Stone, Dr. Robert Lustig (“The Fat Chance Cookbook”), Sarma Melngailis (“Raw Food/ Real World”), Joe “the Juicer” Cross, and Angela Liddon (“Oh She Glows”) “I Quit Sugarâ€ makes it easy to kick the habit for good, lose weight, and feel better than ever before. When you are nourished with delicious meals and treats, you won’t miss the sugar for an instant. “When I quit sugar I found wellness and the kind of energy and sparkle I had as a kid. I don’t believe in diets or in making eating miserable. This plan and the recipes are designed for lasting wellness.” — Sarah Wilson”

The Case Against Sugar, Gary Taubes
Among Americans, diabetes is more prevalent today than ever; obesity is at epidemic proportions; nearly 10% of children are thought to have nonalcoholic fatty liver disease. And sugar is at the root of these, and other, critical society-wide, health-related problems. With his signature command of both science and straight talk, Gary Taubes delves into Americans’ history with sugar: its uses as a preservative, as an additive in cigarettes, the contemporary overuse of high-fructose corn syrup. He explains what research has shown about our addiction to sweets. He clarifies the arguments against sugar, corrects misconceptions about the relationship between sugar and weight loss; and provides the perspective necessary to make informed decisions about sugar as individuals and as a society.
