Sugarettes - sugar plays the unassuming villian

I recently read an outstanding book by Dr. Scott Olson ND called Sugarettes, Sugar Addiction and Your Health. It's one of the best books for "laymen" I've read in a long time and I highly recommend it. You can check out my examiner column if you want more information.

He's also sponsoring a 30 day sugar-free challenge which will start in January. While I'm already sugar-free, I'm thinking of joining and trying a sweet-free challenge for myself. Can I do it? I have no idea. The taste of sweet seems to have a pretty good hold on me. I'll give it a good shot though. Anyone care to join us?

Sugarettes is one of the next books on my list. I really want to read it!

You will love this book Ron! And Scott is a super nice guy. If you have any questions, he'll be glad to answer them! :)

But when do I find time to read all these books I have piling up around me? I got three more today...giggle

I so want to join you in your sweet-free challenge, but I'm not sure I can completely give up sugar free drinks. I can go a month or better without eating anything sweet, but I'm not sure I can go a day without DRINKing something sweet. I'll have to think about this one and get back to you.... I really need to though. Yikes.
Take care, please revisit this again nearer to January if you can, my memory is shot! I know excuses excuses right?
Thanks for another great post Amy,
