This offers instead a prescription for altering our eating habis. Millions of people are sugar-sensitive, which means they have a special body chemistry that reacts in extreme ways to sugar and refined carbohydrates like white bread and pasta. DesMaisons reveals that these comfort foods can sometimes provide just the opposite effect, triggering feelings of exhaustion, hopelessness and low self-esteem. Helping us to free ourselves from sugar dependency, she explains how food-dependendent chemicals in the brain regulate our moods - once we understand how these react to what we eat, or don't eat, we are free to control our lives. In addition to food charts, questionnaires, and accessible scientific lessons, she provides a straightforward seven-step plan. These steps are actually more liberating than any diet could be and the author asserts that as we come into balance, we can shape our own direction rather than being driven by biochemical circumstances.)
