Présentation de l'éditeur

Understand and break your addiction to sugar with David Gillespie's Sweet Poison.

David Gillespie was 6 stone overweight, lethargic and desperate to lose weight fast - but he'd failed every diet out there. When David cut sugar from his diet he immediately started to lose weight and - more amazingly - kept it off. Now slim and with new reserves of energy, David set out to investigate the connection between sugar, our soaring obesity rates and some of the more worrying diseases of the twenty-first century. He discovered:


·Sugar was once such a rare resource that we haven't developed an off-switch - we can keep eating sugar without feeling full.

·In the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than 2 pounds a week.

·Eating that much sugar, you would need to run 4.5 miles every day of your life to not put on weight.

·Food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through 'non-sweet' products like bread, sauces and cereals.

In Sweet Poison David Gillespie exposes one of the great health scourges of our time and offers a wealth of practical information on how to quit sugar.

David Gillespie is a recovering corporate lawyer, co-founder of a successful software company and consultant to the IT industry. He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins). With such a lot of extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat. He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself.

I was recommended this book by a friend and found it very easy reading.
I have a scientific background but know very little about metabolism or biology.
The book is well laid out, easy to follow, and speaks directly to the reader but doesn't dumb down the complex science behind diet and the way our body processes food into energy.

I have been cutting high-fructose foods from my diet for a few weeks now, and already find that my appetite is generally reduced and I feel full quicker. I sleep better and my regularity has improved! I also enjoy eating foods that previously tasted bland much more (ie vegetables and plain, unsweetened biscuits). I've already noticed that I've started losing some body fat, and a little weight, with no real other significant change to my lifestyle other than avoiding high-fructose foods. But the improved well-being is more important than the weight issue for me.

Although there are many other very important factors in lifestyle and diet such as excersise and avoiding high-salt and 'bad' fats, the dangers of the hidden sugar added to most of our food is a hugely important issue and is one that the diet industry seems to ignore. Just last week, leading research groups were writing newspaper articles about the dangers of eating too much carbohydrates, and completely ignoring the sugar issue except in passing reference ("oh well, and of course you should avoid too many sweets.")

For me personally, the message in this book has made a positive impact on my lifestyle in just a few weeks.

This book is a must-read!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Real eye-opener on why i'm fat 30 avril 2011
Par T. Harding - Publié sur
As far as books go, this does what it says on the tin. I read this book (and the Quit Plan book), and have done what I can to eliminate sugar from my diet. I'm in no way fanatical about it, and do have some things that have sugar in it, but as someone who formerly had a "sweet tooth" (easily polishing off 200g bags of lollies in a sitting, and regularly drinking soft drinks), I've found that now that I'm careful about what sugar I eat and drink I'm full quicker and eating less without even thinking about it.

This book appears to be very well researched, and I think it's an advantage that David is not "in the industry" (dietitian or the like), as he's looked at the issue of obesity by looking purely at the research and without preconcieved ideas, or an agenda to push or advertisers/sponsors to worry about.

This book answered a lot of questions about why I'm overweight, and so far I've lost about 8kg simply by eliminating sugar where I can - I still eat too much, exercise little, and often eat the wrong things, but I just stay away from sugar where I can!

As a new parent too, I'm glad that I read this so that I can raise my kids with a full understanding of the reality behind the "ticks" and low-GI.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I wish everyone in Amercan could read this 30 janvier 2014

Reading this book literally blew me away! David Gillespie has written a remarkable book here. He has done a lot of research, much of it very technical, and has managed to keep it simple enough for me to understand completely about what he has uncovered. Personally, I just wish he had written this 20 years ago. After reading this, I now really know about sugar, what it is doing to America and the world, why so many people are suffering and dying in a place of so much abundance, and how I can begin to reverse it's effects.
The sugar industry does not want the world to read this book. It has since changed my life. I've lost 8 pounds already in 3 weeks without even giving anything up but sugar and fruit juices. The American diet experts have been preaching lies to us for years and maybe reading this will open your eyes like it did mine.
Just to qualify myself, I do not know David Gillespie and I'm not Australian. I'm just a guy who was over weight and could get any straight answers under I read this book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Answer to Weight loss! 26 juin 2012
Par Debra - Publié sur
`'Sweet Poison" saved me. I'd spent twenty years battling with health issues with ten of those battling the bulge as well! I remember some days I'd eat virtually nothing and still manage to put on weight. It was frustrating, it was time consuming and demoralising.
I tried diet after diet- weightwatchers, honey-lemon-maple syrup, juice fasts, raw food--and although I'd initially get results I couldn't keep it up. I craved a thinner healthier body but I also craved sweets, cheese, icecream, pasta and chocolate-oh-yes-please. I was weak. I was fat. And by all accounts at forty years old I was going to stay that way unless I applied what everyone was telling me and found a backbone and exercised and avoided `bad' food at all costs, no matter the pain and the suffering.
Then I saw this book, with that enticing doughnut on the front and knew if I was ever going to kick these cravings I had to understand my (dysfunctional) relationship with sugar. Reading this book was effortless, a real page-turner as I devoured the information to get to the bottom of my problem. And it made sense. Scary drive-home-the-madness of modern living sense!
I stopped eating sugar on the 4th December 2011. Great timing with Xmas round the corner but I couldn't delay. I'd been eating poison for far too long. So I went cold turkey. While my body wanted sugar I held firm, eating carbs instead (something I'd tried to avoid at all costs previously) and I resisted eating fruit to substitute the lack of sweetness, and tossed the honey in the bin. Within days the cravings waned and my mind cleared as though I'd been living in a dense fog and I felt much more energy.
Without effort, I lost weight, slowly but surely. It's been six months and I've lost 10kg (22lbs) without exercise, without starving, without struggle and without giving up anything but fructose. Am half way and don't doubt that by Christmas this year I'll be at my goal, but this isn't a diet, it's a way of life. Side effects - virtually no asthma, no psoriasis at all , no joint pain and loads of energy to enjoy life! (P.S - If you've made the change to no-sugar and aren't seeing the results on the scales then cut back processed carbs and replace with whole grain. Pasta, rice, bread etc. Listen to your body... and what works for it now that you can hear it.)

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good data, well written 19 septembre 2009
Par Carms - Publié sur
This book lays out very well the case for why sugar (fructose in particular) is the culprit in the Western Diet. All the data used comes from 'respectable' scientific journals. It also makes the case for why it is not fat that is the culprit. It is well written, clearly argued and provides evidence that I find compelling.

As a good summary of the case against sugar (fructose) I don't think it could be improved upon. A sane and valuable guide to the fat vs sugar controvers in the diet wars.
