Format: Hardcover

Year of No Sugar by Eve O. Schaub

Date Read: May 2015

Genre: Health, Non-Fiction

It's Dinnertime. Do You Know Where Your Sugar is Coming From?
Most likely everywhere. Sure, it's in ice cream and cookies, but what scared Eve O. Schaub was the secret world of sugar--hidden in bacon, crackers, salad dressing, pasta sauce, chicken broth, and baby food.
With her eyes open by the work of obesity expert Dr. Robert Lustig and others, Eve challenged her husband and two school-age daughters to join her on a quest to eat no added sugar for an entire year.

Along the way, Eve uncovered the real costs of our sugar-heavy American diet--including diabetes, obesity, and increased incidences of health problems such as heart disease and cancer. The stories, tips, and recipes she shares throw fresh light on questionable nutritional advice we've been following for years and show that it is possible to eat at restaurants and go grocery shopping--with less and even no added sugar.

Year of No Sugar is what the conversation about "kicking the sugar addiction" looks like for a real American family--a roller coaster of unexpected discoveries and challenges.

Quick Thoughts: Year of No Sugar by Eve O. Schaub was just a total miss for me. I could not even fathom the extreme take on no sugar cold turkey for a whole family. Kudos to her for doing it and her family agreeing it. However, I just can’t imagine there wasn’t more pushback from her family. Also there could have been a little bit more detail on how she went about it. I think this will work more for people who really are into giving up sugar. For those on the fence, I don’t think it will convince you.

  1. So I probably shouldn’t have had that Aero bar for breakfast, huh? lol. This would be SO hard. I mean, there’s sugar in everything. With most diets, I doubt I could get my family on board. For me it’s all about portion control over anything else and NOT taking something away.
