This book literally changed my life. I was always a naturally chubby but healthy person but always wished I could loose the few extra kilo's that I always carried. I eat healthy, don't have a sweet tooth, and did a lot of exercise but could never get to my ideal weight. After I read this and followed David's advice by cutting out the hidden sugar, I lost 10kg! I didn't even know I was carrying that much extra weight. I feel great too. It's like my tastebuds came alive and everything tastes amazing. My appetite is no longer out of control, I have zero to none cravings, don't bloat as much, and my menstrual cycle became like clockwork. So I am an avid supporter of no sugar. I definitely recommend it to everyone.
