Zero Sugar Diet: The 14-Day Plan to Flatten Your Belly, Crush Cravings, and Help Keep You Lean for Life by David ZinczenkoI have had the best news recently: my blood test results came back absolutely NORMAL--good cholesterol, no diabetes, etc. I have reached my weight loss goal and feel terrific! All thanks to following the recommendations and menus in this book.
Zinczenko zeroes in on the added sugars in processed foods as the culprit in the obesity and diabetes epidemic and gives instructions in how to read the labels and choose wisely. He also believes these foods should have more fiber than sugar in their ingredient lists. That alone eliminates a lot of packaged foods! Naturally occurring sugar in fruits, dairy and veggies is fine--its what is added during processing that is making us fat, he believes.
The Zero Sugar Diet at a glance:
1. Zero sugar carbs: Vegetables: unlimited--eat until you are satisfied. Whole grains, beans, nuts, etc.
2. Fresh fruit: limit to 2 or 3 servings a day.
3. Power protein: eggs, fish, Greek yogurt, lean meat such as turkey, chicken, lean beef, roast pork.
4. Healthy drinks: water, tea, milk, and wine in moderation. No juices EVER. No beer, guys--sorry!
After nearly three months of following this plan, my husband is still saying, This is the best diet weve ever been on! But instead of diet, I believe we should call it a lifestyle change, and I hope it will be that because it is definitely a change for better health.

I Felt Less Hungry
Generally speaking, it works by doing one thing very, very effectively: drastically lowering your sugar consumption while boosting your fibre intake. The Zero Sugar Diet requires lots of whole foods like fruits, vegetables and unprocessed grains; lean, healthy, satisfying, sugar-free foods like eggs, turkey, chicken and fish; and just the right amount of sugar-free good fats, like guacamole. Are you in? We thought so. A filling lunch with plenty of flavour. Simple and beautifully Mediterranean. Sear a fresh tuna steak in extra virgin olive oil for three minutes, and serve it on a salad of spinach, black beans, fresh peas, chopped walnuts and parmesan.
If you asked twenty-five-year-old me to predict what my forties would look like, I would have used just one word to describe them: fat. Fat was my inevitable destiny; how could it not be? I had grown up as a latchkey kid with a serious sugar addiction; my best friends were the Three Musketeers and all I knew of the world outside my suburban Pennsylvania neighborhood was French vanilla, English toffee, and Dutch chocolate. The Navy Reserves whipped me into shape but when I entered the workforce soon after, the weight began to pile back on. How can someone go from eating up to calories a day in added sugars to virtually none? And what the heck would I be eating then? To find out, I worked with nutritionists to develop Zero Sugar Diet , and ran a test panel of 1, people where we documented—on a day-by-day basis—the remarkable changes that happened.
