Terrific asset to your cookbook collection!

My husband started on SugarBusters almost a year ago, after my boss lost 50 lbs on it. We bought the SugarBusters book and also the cookbook. Never used any of the recipes in either. Instead, I was cooking only a meat and several veggies for each meal, and we were getting a little burned out. THEN, we found this in a bookstore! Everything we've tried has been terrific, not to mention easy. Hubby has lost 55lbs, thanks to SugarBusters and regular exercise. We're eating better tasting food than we ever have, and it is healthy, to boot! The shopping guide is extremely helpful and more comprehensive than the one put out by SugarBusters. I have since given at least 5 copies of this as gifts, along with Sugar Bust for Life Part II.

Excellent resource for the Sugar Busters lifestyle!

Sugar Bust for Life! is based on the diet principles from the Sugar Busters Cut Sugar to Trim Fat book. Ellen Brenan the author of Sugar Bust for Life! was the consultant and publisher of the original Sugar Buster's book. The book Sugar Busters describes a healthy way of eating to gain vitality and lose weight. Sugar Bust For Life! expands on the book with a ton of information to make the Sugar Buster way of life simple! The Sugar Bust for Life! book includes over 400 recipes, menus, an extensive supermarket shopping list with brand names, a glycemic list of foods, detailed information on the program, low fat modifications and even a list of acceptable red wines!The recipes range from simple appetizers to savory entrees. Each recipe was carefully formulated to maximize your taste experience yet help you lose weight, control cholesterol, and improve your health by using ingredients that have a low to moderate glycemic level and little refined sugar.Appetizers include Oysters Rockefeller, Crabmeat Mariniere, Fresh Salsa and Mexican Layer Dip. Soups include basic stocks, Red Bean Soup, and Cream of Broccoli. Tomatoes and Wine, Ketchup and Alfredo are among the sauces. Breakfast dishes, salads and salad dressings, grilling and marinades, side dishes and vegetarian fare are also included. The entrees are extensive ranging from Baked Chicken Supreme to Lasagne to Steak Diane. Over 400 recipes and all made with easy to find ingredients and simple to prepare!The Brennan's include 2 weeks worth of meal plans and suggestions on how to maximize your weight loss. They also have a wonderful section of brand names to look for in your supermarket to help make, selecting healthy choices easy. And they include a list of hidden sugars to beware of. Another welcome section to the book is a list of acceptable wines you can drink in moderation, while following the Sugar Busters program. Theodore Brennan is the co-author of the book and owner of Brennan's restaurant of New Orleans. His brother James, a wine expert and connoisseur, selected the wines. Brennan's restaurant has won numerous awards, for its fine wine cellars. The wines selected are the best choices that are acceptable within the Sugar Busters guidelines. The book Sugar Bust for Life! was formerly called Sugar Less for Life! Unfortunately (...)is selling these two books together as a set when they are the same book! The Brennan's do have a another book out called Sugar Bust for Life with the Brennan's Part II. It's also available through (...). I just received a copy, and like its sister book, it looks wonderful!Sugar Bust for Life! With the Brennan's is certainly a delicious easy way to lose weight and get healthy!

Can't Believe NC!

I'm confused by the misleading review from the reader in NC. I got this cookbook 8 weeks ago and I LOVE it. It is packed with fantastic and easy to make recipes for every occasion and I've already lost 10 pounds! If the reader is intimidated by the thought of eating "turtles and ducks" he/she doesn't know what they're missing, but not to worry, this book has you covered. Is spaghetti and meatballs too exotic for them? Meatloaf? They want "McDonald's?" That's too bad because the 3 hamburger recipes are simple and delicious. In fact, the Hamburger Brennan is the best burger I've ever had. The reader from NC is worried about cheese and butter? Did they read the Low Fat Modification section? The book clearly explains that many times low and no fat equals high sugar content. It's all about moderation and the author provides substitutions. And thank goodness for all those appetizer and sauce recipes! Now I can entertain or make a special dinner for my family and still stick to my diet! I've tried a million diets and this book is the first one that's made sense to me! I don't know what's going on in NC, but take it from NY, this book is a life saver!

Great Editing, Great Recipes, Great Diet!

I usually read the customer and editorial reviews before I purchase a book. Fortunately, I know not to depend solely on them. Such was the case with SUGAR BUST FOR LIFE! Obviously, the reader from Birmingham was having a bad day. The book contains over 400 low sugar recipes to choose-the ones I have tried have all been excellent. I did not start with the desserts; Just Desserts serve as my reward for losing pounds. Now that I have had success with this way of eating, I have tried the desserts. The Praline Parfait was very tasty and explicitly calls for sugar free maple syrup. The Vanilla Ice Cream calls for sugar-free syrup. I took that to mean any sugar-free syrup; i.e., it could be maple if I wanted or it didn't have to be maple. It turned out nicely. The Brand Name Guide recommends two kinds of syrup. I hope that whoever reads my review will give SUGAR BUST FOR LIFE! a "try" and not let that one misleading review be a deterrent. In any case, I felt that I needed to reply so others are not denied a sensible, healthy, and satisfying way to lose weight and stay fit.


Every thiing I've cooked from this cookbook has been excellent. The diet works-I lost 25 pounds in 5 weeks- & still losing..
