This is not a diet but an eating plan that excludes certain foods - refined sugars, carbohydrates and starches. These are often present in conventional low-fat diets. Includes a 14-day eating plan and easy-to-prepare gourmet recipes.
Once you've listened to Sugar Busters!, you'll never look at a Snickers bar, a baked potato, or even a carrot stick in the same way. Developed by three doctors and the CEO of a Fortune 500 company, the basic theory of this diet plan is that intake of too much sugar produces too much insulin, which prevents you from losing weight. And since sugar hides in breads, other starches, and some vegetables, following the plan means more than just cutting back on Twinkies. Author H. Leighton Steward narrates the tape with a slow New Orleans drawl that takes some getting used to, but he paces the information so you can catch the details. The diet is quite simple, and since recipe cards are included, you should be able to implement the plan immediately. (Running time: 2.25 hours, two cassettes) --Sharon Griggins
