A 66-day plan for going sugar-free from an eating disorder specialist and therapist who broke free of her own sugar addiction.
Our relationship with food can be complicated: for many, food soothes painful emotions, it nurtures, it numbs, it provides a 'high'. Breaking Up With Sugar offers a plan for the complete transformation of many people's destructive relationship with food. For these people, sugar is often the culprit: it produces physical, neurological and endocrine changes that render the individual powerless over their compulsion to eat.
Molly Carmel struggled with her own eating disorder for over 20 years and finding no solutions in available treatments, she created The Beacon, where she helps clients recover from similar addictions. Her step-by-step instructions are designed to take the guesswork out of sugar-free eating and help people start a new, healthier relationship with food. With 8 vows to return to and rely on, and guidance on how to divorce dieting forever, Breaking Up With Sugar offers an individualised, sustainable and realistic plan for eating and thriving for life.
The secret about sugar is that even small amounts can be harmful to our health because our bodies learn to want more. And that makes moderation impossible. Molly explains the science behind a problem so many struggle with, and helps readers untangle the emotions that can get in their way. If you struggle with weight issues and haven't found solutions elsewhere, this book has the answers you've been looking for.
Compelling, well researched and accessible. Molly shares the truth of her story, combined with fascinating and irrefutable facts in a journey that can lead anyone to freedom from a sugar addiction. One of the most well-hidden yet destructive addictions of all.
It's exciting to see Molly Carmel present a deeply researched, battle-tested, realistic way of changing our culturally skewed relationship with sugar. The information and ideas in Breaking Up with Sugar can prevent disease, save lives, and make those lives much healthier and more joyful. If you suspect that your relationship with sugar is unhealthy (and if it is, at some level you know it) do something kind for yourself and read this book!
All my patients know what I think about sugar - that it is poison, and people are addicted to it. I want to get sugar, in all its forms, out of their diets, but that, as they say, is easier said than done. In Breaking Up with Sugar, Molly Carmel tells us exactly how to do it. I would recommend this to every one of my patients and anyone who wants to be healthier.
