Sugar Free: 8 weeks to Freedom from Sugar and Carb Addiction

Sugar Free is the first self-help book written in South Africa to help people overcome sugar and carbohydrate addiction. It is written by authors Karen Thomson and Kerry Hammerton with the support of dietician Tamzyn Campbell and a foreword by Prof Tim Noakes. It does advocate the low carb high fat (LCHF) way of eating. This book is the only one available to address the emotional and behavioural patterns of a sugar and carb addict. For many people simply knowing what to eat is not enough. Sugar Free addresses this issue. In addition to the 8-week programme, Sugar Free also contains personal accounts of addiction, meal programmes and sugar-free recipes.

High Fructose Corn Syrup
HFCS stands for High-Fructose Corn Syrup. It is a sweetener that is derived from corn starch and widely used in processed foods and beverages. HFCS is composed of glucose and fructose, similar to table sugar (sucrose), which is also a combination of these two simple sugars. HFCS gained popularity in the food industry in the 1970s as a cheaper alternative to sugar. It became widely used in soft drinks, baked goods, condiments, and other processed foods because it is cost-effective, easy to blend, and has a long shelf life.
