I know this topic is a month old but I just joined SP and decided to see if there were any sugar buster topics. My recent blood work indicated "pre-diabetic" and cholesterol not where it should be. My dr told me to lose weight, which I've lost 30 lbs since March 2012 including about 10 this year. of course, the dr just gives the news and I was left wondering what to do. I'm on a weight loss program. I exercise about 300 min. a week. Seemingly, I'm doing the right things but the blood work numbers are not good. I want to change things so I'm looking for ideas what to change. I thought Sugar Busters looks like a good guideline, although, I'm just in the beginning chapters of the book. My friend has talked about this book for years.
Anyway, I think there could be something to the insulin-cholesterol connection. I've heard Drs on TV speaking about sugar being a significant factor in the problem with cholesterol. I'm waiting for the cookbooks to arrive and meanwhile reading the updated version of the book, trying to get ideas what I should and shouldn't eat.
Anyone else reading the book?
Giving up is not an option.
