My name is Kimberly and I'm the reader/reviewer behind Wit and Sin. Wit and Sin is a website that provides honest reviews and publicity. I primarily read and review Romance titles, but I also review Urban Fantasy, New Adult, Young Adult, Mystery, and Non-Fiction titles.

My review cross-posted from Wit and Sin: http://witandsin.blogspot.com/2013/07/review-sugar-detox-by-brooke-alpert-and.html
The Sugar Detox is unlike any health and wellness book I’ve read lately. Authors Brooke Alpert and Patricia Farris explain what sugar does to your body, going beyond the rote “it’s bad for you,” to detail how sugar affects not only your waistline and overall health, but how it ages your skin. Though I don’t have a background in medicine/nutrition, from a layperson’s standpoint, I thought The Sugar Detox was well-researched and found Ms. Alpert and Dr. Farris’s resulting food plan and overall wellness guide to be sensible and not too difficult to follow.
Unfortunately, The Sugar Detox’s greatest strength is also its greatest weakness. The scientific data Ms. Alpert and Dr. Farris use to explain what sugar does to your body isn’t written in an easily digestible manner. This means that The Sugar Detox is a very dense read and I did wish the authors were a bit more concise in their explanations.
The Sugar Detox is a well-thought out lifestyle change book. If you’re tired of fad diets and simply want to get healthy, I recommend giving The Sugar Detox a try.
