    2. This book was everything I was looking for and more. After reading "Sugar Blues" by William Dufty, I wanted a practical "how to" book to help me cut excess sugar out of my diet. However, I am not an anti-sugar extremist and wanted to find creative ways to get rid of unneccesary excess sugar, while keeping the sweetness and taste in my food, including desserts, and "Get the Sugar Out" definitely provided that. The book suggests varying levels of sugar extraction, from simple sugar substitution to [...]

    3. I didn't finish this one because I had to turn it back in to the library but I read most of it and the ending. I would not recommend it. It is way too much fluff. She uses 501 ways to get across the same point DON'T EAT SUGAR. We get it. Maybe this is a book one would need to remind themselves what to eat other than sugar but it was not very focused. The author gives you the horrible effects of sugar, suggests using sweeteners instead, gives you the horrible effects of some of those sweeteners, [...]

    4. I just didn't realize how much I didn't know until I started reading. I'm feeling inspired to get on and move forward towards having a healthy relationship with sugar. She teaches about natural vs. artificial sweetners, how to recognize hidden sugars in foods, and simple ways to cut reduce your sugar intake . . . recipes included. Don't be overwhelmed: the author has trained her taste buds to be satisfied with VERY LITTLE sugar. Its going to take me a while to retrain mine, but at least I have s [...]

    5. This book is worth it for the recipes alone! I especially enjoy the pumpkin muffins on pg. 31. But beyond that, it provides a great explanation of exactly why sugar can be harmful and then a bunch of ideas for what to substitute (hint: it's not Splenda). Although I haven't even nearly cut the sugar completely out of my diet, I have started trying new things to reduce it in everyday things. And I have to say, I feel better.

    6. I liked this book overall. The copyright is 1996, so it's not the most up-to-date, but I still think she had most things right on. I was pretty surprised by a few foods I eat that I thought were basically healthy that are packed with sugar. I think she is dead on about sugar being the main issue with the American diet currently and I hope I can slowly work the sugar down in my own, we'll see!

    7. I'm thinking of using this book as a daily devotional so I can maintain my fear of the demon sugar. Seriously.

    8. LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK! Can't recommend it more to anyone who is watching their sugar intake and aiming to prevent diabetes. Since diabetes runs in my family, I have to be more careful than the average person, and this book is full of wonderful and very implent-able suggestions as to how to kick added sugar out of your diet. For example, instead of snacking on chocolate cupcakes, the author suggests a nice recipe for filling a date with a bit of peanut butter (satisfying, due to the prote [...]

    9. I picked this up yesterday from the library and I must say a few key things on the cover are what pulled me in. I know the effects of sugar and how bad it is for you, but "501 Simple Ways" to cut out the sugar sounded great, and info on artificial sweeteners? Great! I guess I was hoping that when I opened the book I would find large lists of the alternate names for sugar, where to find them, how they're commonly hidden in products, and then some advice on replacements in recipes and what substit [...]

    10. Excellent resource for anyone trying to break their addiction to sugar. I had to buy another copy cuz I loaned mine to my sister and her ex-husband took it when they divorced. Was that too much info? Anyway, I also bought one for my diabetic niece. Book has loads of info on all the damage sugar causes to your body and suggests ways to get it out of your diet. It gives "substitutions", too, like agave nectar, brown rice syrup, and date sugar, but even some studies today say you should severely li [...]

    11. Well, I love sugar. However, this book does give some good alternatives to the apparently dangerous white stuff - agave nectar, stevia, etc. Nothing too unusual here, but it's easy to read and pretty upbeat. I have yet to actually follow the non-sugar regimen, but maybe with the wedding coming up, I'll find some new motivation. Or maybe it will sit on my shelf next to In Defense of Food and Food Matters. I am such a sucker for Improve Your Life Through Healthy Diet books.

    12. I picked this up out of curiosity. There were some good general tips for people starting a new healthy lifestyle, but the book didn't offer anything unusually new for me. It was more of a book that advocates less sugar, so if you're looking to cut all refined sugar out look elsewhere. The recipes aren't anything special. The most troubling part of this book though are the author's misunderstanding, or misinformation, about vegetarian diets.

    13. Wow, was that hard to get through. Although there were a few good tips randomly strewn in, on the whole it was just too extreme. It started with, try not having any sugar for two weeks and see if you miss it. That's just not realistic in my world. Neither is buying a totally new pantry of specialty items that are 'better'.

    14. This book was first published in 1996. What's amazing is that she talks about things that I've only started to hear and read about in the media. It's an easy read and has very practical information about why we need to get most of the sugar out of our diets and how to do it. Everyone should read this book!

    15. Important revelation about the massive quantity of sugar and sugar substitutes in the US diet. The body needs a balance of carbohydrates, protein and fat; the body does not need any sugar at all. Yet Americans eat hundreds of pound of sugar each year. More than anything else, this is what is driving the obesity epidemic.

    16. This is less of a book and more of a checklist. "Tips" include not eating sugar in soup, not eating sugar in bread, not eating sugar in condiments, and so on. I gave it two stars instead of one, though, because reading it made me check the label on my tomato-basil soup and made me realize what I thought was a healthy lunch had twenty-six grams of sugar.

    17. excellent.tivated me to really reduce my sugar and since i have, it has given me nothing but positive side effectse author really gives you ways to reduce the sugar by making small changes everyday. I love how the list is exhaustiveke i said, my life is changed forever

    18. As with Sugar Blues, I wholeheartedly agree that sugar is BAD. Many of the tips in this book were common sense, so I didn't find myself gleaning new ways of eliminating sugar. There were a few interesting recipes, though, that I will try.

    19. A good book with lots of good tips. But many were things I already knew. Guess I just need the willpower to get the sugar out of my diet. If this is your first book to read on a healthy eating journey you will find TONS of great information!

    20. This book was written in 1995 and I'm reading it in 2015 and it's terrifying how many things mentioned are still a problem today. Read through it once, will now go through it again and copy down some of the recipes

    21. The book is old but was ahead of its time, when fat free was the big cure-all to weight loss. But fat free just added more sugar to make it taste better. Very scary stuff sugar is. In the last 100 years we have 250% more sugar in our diets and bodies.

    22. i was overwhelmed with all the info in this book and sort of skimmed the last half. but it had some great tips.

    23. Great self help book to eat healthy! She covers all your foods and makes it interesting. Quick read too.

    24. Lots of great advice - though I found it tiresome to read a list of 501 tips. The recipes look yummy, and I do plan to try them. Out with sugar for good!

    25. Not a book for vegans or vegetarians. Some suggestions are helpful. Others, not so much. It wasn't as helpful for me as I was hoping. But, I think it depends on the individual and personal goals.

    26. This is a great companion or follow up to William Duffy's Sugar Blues. We're enjoying the practical pointers and taking them to heart, literally!

    27. Nothing earth shattering, but a great reminder. I always think of Gittleman when I fly: she suggested drinking tomato juice. Ever since, that has been my choice on flights.
