About the Authors
The Beat Sugar Addiction Now! Cookbook by board certified internist and renowned energy expert Jacob Teitelbaum, MD, provides a delicious and information-rich roadmap to balancing your blood sugar, losing weight and feeling great—the companion to his earlier blockbuster, Beat Sugar Addiction NOW!
With the collaboration of holistic nutritionist and healthy cooking coach, Deirdre Rawlings, PhD, ND, Dr. Teitelbaum presents 120 sumptuous, low-sugar recipes—organized according to the four major sugar addiction types:
1. “Sugar as an Energy Loan Shark”— chronically exhausted and hooked on quick hits of caffeine and sugar.
2. “Feed Me Now or I’ll Kill You!”— when life’s stress has exhausted your ‘stress-handling’ adrenal glands.
3. “The Happy Ho-Ho Hunter”— sugar cravings caused by candida/yeast overgrowth (often associated with nasal congestion, chronic sinusitis and spastic colon).
4. “Depressed and Craving Carbs”— sugar cravings caused by your period, menopause or andropause.
