Year of No Sugar: A Memoir by Eve O. Schaub


I've been researching ways to make some dietary changes to address a health issue, and I picked this up as I was browsing the health books at the library.

Schaub, along with her family, cut out sugar from their diets for a year. She writes about the challenges and the ups and downs. It seems like they spent a lot of time and energy trying to find substitutes so they wouldn't miss the sugar. However, she does spend a bit of time reflecting on the changes in her own taste buds. It's unclear whether or not they experienced any health benefits like weight loss though or improved health. It seemed like they were just trying to get through the year.
