- Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor of the # 1 New York Times bestseller,YOU: The Owner's Manual

“When I finally decided to turn my life around through exercise and better nutrition, one of the first things I did was give up eating refined, processed sugar.

This well-researched book should be considered must reading for anyone interested in the complex health discussion underway in America today!”

- Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee

She also managed to interview the absolute best minds in the field of diet and health. Steve Sinatra has been in the forefront of integrative medicine for a long time and is one of my favorite go-to doctors.

Little did I realize that by helping Connie to confront her sugar habit that she would turn around and help countless others to conquer their sugar problems, too.
