Understand and break your addiction to sugar with David Gillespie's Sweet Poison - the bestselling expose about the hidden dangers of sugar
_________

David Gillespie was 6 stone overweight, lethargic and desperate to lose weight fast - but he'd failed every diet out there.

When he cut sugar out of his diet he immediately started to lose weight and 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:

IT'S NOT OUR FAULT WE'RE FAT

- 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 menaces of our time and offers a wealth of practical information on how to quit sugar.

About the Author:

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.
