The overload of sugar in your diet is putting your health and even your life at risk warns the UK’s leading nutritionist Dr Marilyn Glenville PhD in this essential guide to life without the white stuff.

Sugar, she warns, is largely to blame for our rising levels of stress and premature ageing including Cancer, Alzheimer's, heart disease, diabetes and overweight.

Even moderate sugar intake on a regular basis is implicated in fungal infections, mood swings, low energy and libido, brain fog and memory problems, inflammation and general lowered immunity.

Who doesn’t love a sugary treat? From cupcakes to chocolate bars, from the great British Bake-Off to Sunday afternoon crumpets and cake, we’ve been raised on the sweet stuff – sugar has been a lifelong treat for most of us. But now the tide is turning. Over the last few years the media has been full of stories about the problems with sugar in our diet. Not to put too fine a point on it – we are putting our health and even our lives at risk with the overload of sugar in our diet.

However it seems there is still a great deal of confusion out there surrounding sugar.

What do we mean by ‘sugar’?

What effects does sugar have on your health?

If you do cut out or reduce sugar, what do you replace it with?

Again and again I am asked questions about sugar, both during consultations and following my talks. It is clear that people are still confused about the whole sugar issue: they want clear explanations of exactly why it is not good for their heath and what they can do about it. Hence this book…
