THIS BOOK COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE

-Every five seconds, one more person develops diabetes.
-Worldwide, 285 million people are affected by type 2 diabetes.
-Many of them have no idea.

Here is the personal story of one man who has unearthed the mysteries of this global epidemic and offers hard-won practical advice for how readers can take control of their lives and combat this deadly disease.

"Sugar Nationis a must-read! As a fitness expert myself, who has dealt with family diabetes and coaching families on how to limit their sugar intake, this book is a fundamental tool in educating the world on just how dangerous dietary sugar can be. Jeff O'Connell's direct yet user-friendly approach to this important and overlooked subject is more than refreshing. All will benefit from picking this book up."

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Shocking and moving! "This book could save your life" is no exaggeration! While reading this, it finally hit me that diabetes can (and probably will) happen to me, and the horrifying suffering that would entail. I am not immune, quite the opposite; if I don't start acting now, I am doomed. Finally, a book that has given me the motivation to change my diet and exercise routine for good, and to actually start acting like I care about my own health. I've read a lot of books on diet and health and weight loss, but nothing has been able to budge my lifelong sugar addiction quite like the fear this book has inspired in me. I've gone 5 days now without added sugar (I've never been able to pull that together before) and I see results already, like no cravings, always satisfied, and less obsession with how I look and more obsession with avoiding unnecessary limb amputations. Kind of an intense review, maybe... But the book is also filled with touching personal anecdotes and uplifting experiences, encouragement, and research and science to back it all up. Very informative... and scary!
