Most people know sugar is bad for them, but few people know the sugar impact of seven common foods - grains, roots, fruit, low-fat and no-fat diet and dairy foods, sugary sauces and condiments, alcohol and sugary drinks, and natural and artificial sweeteners - can be the real cause of inflammation, bloating, metabolic disorders, fatigue, and weight gain. JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Diet will revolutionize how listeners think about (and eat) sugar. This two-week, low-sugar diet helps retrain taste buds, restore sugar sensitivity, heal the digestive tract, rev up metabolism, and promote rapid weight loss. It also helps reverse premature aging, while heading off most chronic and inflammatory illnesses where they start.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

"JJ Virgin's Sugar Impact Diet can help save your brain and your life. Numerous studies show that sugar can be addictive and pro-inflammatory and lead to a number of devastating illnesses. If you want a better brain, I highly recommend this book." (Daniel G. Amen, MD, New York Times best-selling author of Change Your Brain, Change Your Life)
"Opens your eyes to how much sugar you're really eating, and provides an actionable plan to cut down on the sweet stuff and feel better fast." (Mark Hyman, MD, author of the #1 New York Times best-seller, The Blood Sugar Solution 10 Day Detox Diet)
"In line with leading-edge science, JJ Virgin presents a radical and empowering new way to look at sugar." (David Perlmutter, MD, FACN)
The content of this book is amazing if you are really looking to burn some fat and feel like you have tried everything else. It's well written, it's understandable and it covers all the bases from education to actual practical solutions. As someone who has genuinely tried everything this book has been a revelation. Next time someone tells you to loose weight you just need to eat less and move more, point them in the direction of this book, fat loss in the modern world couldn't possibly be that simple, it isn't but this book is an amazing blue print for actually getting results, loved it, oh and it actually works.
Had no issues with the narrator, think the book was read well and I managed to listen to the whole thing in quite a short space of time, very engaging, great content, well read.
I have subsequently bought the paperback so I can use it as a reference, there are online resources so you don't need to but it's helped me but loved the fact I could get the content delivered to me quickly just walking to and from work.
No, it is not written for the UK market. Too many facts and figures. Tara Ochs voice is irritating.
No one, should not be in audio
Good perhaps for the US but not for the UK. Did not enjoy and have not finished it, in fact put it down after a few chapters.
Even though I didn't follow the recipes or plate recommend really well with not enough time to be ready for the diet, I've lost 7 pounds in 6 days! Love how she proves everything with studies etc and her good humor. Plus, simple tips on day to day eating with easy to do steps that help a LOT! Thank you for this amazing book and movement against sugar that you started. Highly recommended book for everyone.
"Diet for health and life"
Not only dropping the sneaky sugars improved my weight, but also gave me more energy overall. I used to be very depressed and in a bad mood needing to eat sugar all the time, always having headaches and low energy. After making only 1 week of this diet, I feel now energized, optimistic, without headaches, and looking forward to reach to my goals in life. I'm another myself, I can't barely recognize my new "me"! Totally recommend it for anyone either trying to lose weight or feel your health improve fast.
"A health/nutrition lifesaver !!!!"
This book opened my eyes !!
Just like big pharma & big med do not always have patients' best interest in mind, big food/tampered food are mostly concerned with profit regardless of the ingredients they use and the repercussions they have the public's health and ultimately healthcare system .....
"Relief at Last!"
As a child of the 70's...when high fructose corn sugar became popular, I was the poster child of someone who became a sugar burner by default. I can now see that my diet was predominately filled with glucose and especially fructose. After decades of blaming my lack of willpower for weight struggles and health problems, this book has provided a clear path to success for me. I have been searching for years for the correct information and now realize the advice I have received through the years actually made matters worse. "Sugar Impact Diet" is an excellent resource for anyone who wants to stop spinning their wheels and start losing weight. Actually, the weight loss is just a bonus. The real joy lies in not craving something to eat every two hours and feeling guilty for it. The most amazing gift this book gives is the freedom to know what it feels like to be healthy and to at last, see the light at the end of an extremely long tunnel.
"All material should be in the audiobook"
Wish they included all the material in the audiobook instead of constantly referring to the PDF
Was a little put off by all the referrals to the pdf, but after I put in the time to follow it, it really helped.
"Another crappy diet idea"
Let's focus in one thing and all will be better with your diet and why do authors feel the need to turn a simple idea into a crappy 7 hour book. The reading of this managed to make the book even worse!
narrator sounded like a robot. sometimes use the book to fall asleep to. material could have been said in half of one chapter. literally repeats over and over nothingness of don't eat sugar. that could have been said in one sentence.
"Choose a different low sugar book!"
No, she is so smug and irritating. Someone else said the narrator was annoying, but I think the narrator did a good job - came across just like the book was written.
There are much better options out there for learning about low sugar diets. You can listen to Robert Lustig on Youtube, read David Gillespie's "Sweet Poison" (and also Quit plan book, and cookbook), and there are some fun memoir books out there like "OMG I Would Die Without Chocolate" by Ellen Parker. But I just couldn't stomach this book by JJ Virgin.
"too chatty and repetitive"
couldn't stand to listen long enough to hear whether there was actually anything new in it.
