Good Sugar Bad Sugar Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
Good Sugar Bad Sugar tackles the biggest dietary threat to the modern world: sugar.
Due to refined sugar in so many foods, we are seeing epidemics of obesity and type II diabetes on a global scale.
The warnings are stark - a 50 percent rise in the death toll from type II diabetes in the next 10 years - yet it's not as straightforward as telling people to cut down on the sugar. Sugar consumption is an addiction that begins at birth, and it requires a proven method to get you free.
Good Sugar Bad Sugar applies Allen Carr's Easyway method to this problem of sugar addiction, unraveling the brainwashing that makes us see sugary food as a pleasure or a crutch and replacing it with clearly explained logic.

Firstly, this book doesn't just want you to give up chocolate. It includes bread, pasta and potatoes. Ok, fine. I know they're not the best foods to eat, and if you're willing to put yourself through that then good for you.
It repeatedly calls BAD SUGAR "poisons". Say what you like about chocolate and cake, but you will never get me to consider potatoes poisonous.
It claims that all BAD SUGARS are empty calories. Now, I'm no dietitian, but it is my understanding that you do get some fibre from carbs.
He is OBSESSESD with fruit. He would have us eat nothing else.
Apparently, none of this stuff actually tastes good. That's just not true. Mashed potatoes are amazing, and I could happily live off Creme Eggs for the rest of my life (hence why I bought the book in the first place).
It finishes by telling you to eat your last meal and vow to never BAD SUGAR again. Seriously, no one could ever consider this realistic.
Finally, I hate the way it's written. It's like a rambling lecture. Like when your off the grid vegan co-worker goes off on one (to be fair though the smoking one was written in a similar manner).
In summary, not only did the book not work, it was a chore to read. I did finish it, but only because I thought "maybe it's working and I'm just not noticing". I then went and had a creme egg.
One word of advice though, I find with these books you have to choose to allow them to work. For example, there might be the odd fact or statement which you don’t think is completely true, don’t worry about these. Just decide to believe in the books and they will work for you. If you don’t think it has worked, commit to believing in the book and read it again. It will work for you.
Another tip is the audio book is only 3.99 once you’ve bought the ebook. I found listening to the audio book while reading the words at the same time was the most powerful way of getting the information into my brain.
I went to NYC. I ate sugar. Lots of it. But the strangest thing happened. I didn’t enjoy it. Not once. But nor could I stop myself. Everything the book talks about. Clear as daylight I finally saw my “love” of sweets for what it was. Addiction.
I returned home and I’ve not had refined sugar since. I took the lessons of the book seriously. No longer would it be about willpower. That’s not to say there weren’t difficulties. Of course the first month or two is the hardest. But I soon discovered my love of fruits and after a few months I had ZERO desire for refined sugar.
I’m through to the other side and couldn’t be happier. A year ago I couldn’t walk past a plate of sweets. And once I started I you could be sure the whole plate would be gone! Now a mars bar has as much appeal as a stick of chalk. Seriously, you’ll be that indifferent to sweets.
Read the book. Put aside your ego. Rediscover your love of real food. Enjoy your freedom.
I find the writing style in this book rather SHOUTY and at times the information is repetitive but it is quite easy to read. Basically the messages are sound, the method is just the same as for stopping smoking, and the steps are relatively easy to follow. It's mostly about understanding how your mind works in relation to things you think are 'nice and can't do without'. Once you've nailed that you're sorted!
