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.

So I downloaded this recently and decided to give it a try. It was very similar in nature to the EasyWay method: while you might not be startled by new amazing facts, Carr's method is different. It works by undoing the mental and emotional connections to the the habit and product, reversing the brainwashing that years of consumption, advertising and society did to our minds.
Have I kicked sugar since reading it? I'd say by amount 80%. Do I miss it? Nope, hardly at all. I am not craving chocolate, cake, cookies, bread, potatoes. It's amazing really to change a 4-decade habit with a book.
After I quit drinking, I had some scary sugar binges (I'm talking eating 9 loft-house style sugar cookies in under a half-hour here, people!!!!) so I realized I had a problem brewing pretty quick. Because I got a second job, lately I've had more income, so I felt I had the resources to eat a better diet. I scooped this book on Audible AND read along to the Kindle version. It's been three months and I have really enjoyed being ~almost~ sugarless - sometimes I'll partake in processed carbs if there is a special occasion, but if I'm flying solo I go the EasyWay!
Am I off sugar? No, within 48 hours the book's effects wore off and the sugar crash sent me right back to the sugar. One thing I have learned, though: Don't keep sugary snacks or drinks in the house. That way if you want it, you have to get in your car and go get it. When you do, get only ONE SERVING, so you won't have leftovers to store in the house. This won't prevent you from consuming sugar, but it will cut down on your sugar consumption. And the fact that you know you can get into your car and go get some any time you want takes the pressure off the need for sugar.
Don't be too nitpicky, though. There are holes and inconsistencies in the text. Leave them, and rather focus on the benefit that waits for you at the end of the book - sugar-free life!

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!
