The Sweet Tooth Dilemma

Sugar is seductive, dangerous and hard to quit. Here’s how to walk away.

The book is titled The Sweet Tooth Dilemma because so many of us can relate to having a “sweet tooth:” for some of us it is an occasional treat, and for others of us we know that our lives are ruled by sugar and refined carbs. But there are also many of us who think we are being healthy by eating “health foods” like granola and fruit yogurt, all the while feeding a sugar dependency we weren’t even aware of.

You may know that eating too much sugar is fattening—but did you know that it also causes inflammation and can lead to heart disease, which is the #1 killer in the United States? It contributes to many other health issues too, including:

  • Diabetes,
  • Depression and other mental health disorders,
  • Dementia, and
  • PCOS

…to name just a few.

If you’ve ever tried to quit or cut back on eating sugar, you know that it’s not so easy—with cravings and energy crashes keeping you from succeeding. 

In simple language, The Sweet Tooth Dilemma explains the science of why sugar is so bad for you, what makes it so hard to quit, and how to quit—with a proven program that thousands of people have taken to successfully cut back or quit. Now you can do it too!

“This was a real wake-up call to the amount of sugar in our food. I did not think of myself as a sugar addict but I was surprised by how much sugar is in the foods I eat that I consider healthy (Go Lean cereal, Chobani fruit yogurt, fruit and nut granola bars). This one month challenge was a great way to make changes I plan on keeping.” Ellen L., program participant
