Based on the documentary THAT SUGAR FILM, this is an explosive exposé of the dangers of sugar.When Australian actor and filmmaker Damon Gameau met a girl he wanted to impress, he decided to get healthy by reducing his sugar intake. In no time he was slimmer, calmer, fitter and happier. But he was also curious: why did the elimination of sugar have such beneficial effects? He decided to experiment by eating 40 teaspoons of sugar a day over the course of 60 days. The results were staggering. Gameau gained nearly 20 pounds; he developed signs of fatty liver disease; and doctors warned him that he was on the road to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. His journey took him not just down a path to illness, but deep into an investigation into how our food is made and marketed. Gameau interviewed experts and discovered that 80% of products on our supermarket shelves contain sugar, and that 90 million Americans have fatty liver disease directly linked to their sugar consumption. Expanding on That Sugar Film, That Sugar Book offers 30 recipes, in-depth interviews, and colorful graphic images to reveal the truth behind the world's alarming and health-destroying sugar habit. It contains sensible advice on kicking the sugar addiction; lists which foods to avoid; and explains how to shop, how to read labels, and how to cook sugar-free food. A riveting, funny, meticulously well-researched, and shocking exposé, That Sugar Book is destined to change the eating habits of a generation.

From the best-selling author of Why We Get Fat, a groundbreaking, eye-opening exposé that makes the convincing case that sugar is the tobacco of the new millennium: backed by powerful lobbies, entrenched in our lives, and making us very sick. 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. From the Hardcover edition.

"Strong and folksy storytelling...think Zora Neale Hurston...Sugar speaks of what is real." --The Dallas Morning News From an exciting new voice in African-American contemporary fiction comes a novel Ebony praised for its "unforgettable images, unique characters, and moving story that keeps the pages turning until the end." The Chicago Defender calls Sugar "a literary explosion...McFadden reveals amazing talent." The novel opens when a young prostitute comes to Bigelow, Arkansas, to start over, far from her haunting past. Sugar moves next door to Pearl, who is still grieving for the daughter who was murdered fifteen years before. Over sweet-potato pie, an unlikely friendship begins, transforming both women's lives--and the life of an entire town. Sugar brings a Southern African-American town vividly to life, with its flowering magnolia trees, lingering scents of jasmine and honeysuckle, and white picket fences that keep strangers out--but ignorance and superstition in. To read this novel is to take a journey through loss and suffering to a place of forgiveness, understanding, and grace. McFadden is the author of the novels Gathering of Waters, Glorious, and This Bitter Earth.
