Living Without's Favorite Books: Sweet Desire
Do you battle sugar cravings? Many of us over-indulge a runaway sweet tooth and feel out of control. Now there’s help, thanks to Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, a doc with a mission. Teitelbaum’s Beat Sugar Addiction Now! (Fair Winds Press) explains our obsession with sweets—and then tackles it. The book identifies four types of sugar addiction and discusses underlying causes, including fatigue, stress, yeast overgrowth and depression cravings. Laid out like a workbook (don't skip the quizzes), the book outlines critical steps to recovery in an easy-to-follow format. This isn’t just about your weight. It’s about better understanding yourself while you regain your health and sense of control.
