Product Details


“Decades ago, the official line in nutritional science was that added sugar was mostly harmless, apart from being empty calories and increasing the risk of dental caries. More recently, nutritional scientists have reversed that position, mostly because the food industry has forced extraordinary amounts of sugar into the food supply, a largely unforeseen consequence of public health messaging that warned against fat while giving sugar a green light. Sugar Shock is an important tool to help today’s consumers understand the high amounts of added sugar in their food and how to cut back.” 
Bruce Daggy, PhD., Nutrition Researcher & Educator

“Sugar Shock is so much more than a book—it’s a toolkit that can help anyone and everyone stay informed: Why we’re eating too much sugar; how to make smarter choices about sweets, and provides actionable advice for smart swaps and meal hacks so you can eat what you love without giving up dessert! Sugar Shock brings clarity and authority to the clutter of nutrition and wellness space that’s brimming with disinformation. This is a must-read for science-based information, presented in a deliciously digestible, relatable, and enjoyable form!” 
—Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, Author of Dressing on the Side (and Other Diet Myths Debunked): 11 Science-Based Ways to Eat More, Stress Less, and Feel Great About Your Body; Head of Nutrition and Wellness at WW

“There are a lot of books and sources that tell you why you want to cut back on added sugar, but this book does that and more: It shows you how! It’s literally packed with tips and branded product swaps that make it simple to implement. Sugar Shock tackles every category of the grocery store and beyond (think coffee and smoothie shops, for instance) so you can lower the added sugar in your diet and get healthier without giving up convenience or going to extremes.” 
—Keri Gans, MS, RDN, CDN, Author of The Small Change Diet

“Sugar Shock is the perfect book to help you break up with sugar. The quiz and 7-day sugar tracker help you find where sugar is coming from in your own diet. Then there’s a meal plan and science-based tips for ways to decrease cravings and cut back on sugar. Best of all, there’s so many visual SWAPS featuring actual products to make decreasing sugar easy and actually FUN!”
—DJ Blatner, RDN Author of The Superfood Swap

“In today’s world of overconsumption, especially of added sugar, this book by Prager and Cassetty is much needed. It helps readers reduce intake of added sugar with fun, visual tutorials and delicious, easy (and just sweet enough) recipes. And perhaps most importantly, Sugar Shock goes through all the reasons your health will benefit from you taking in less added sugar. I’ll definitely be recommending this book to my clients!”
—Amy Gorin, MS, RDN, Owner of Amy Gorin Nutrition in the New York City area and Contributor to Food Network and Everyday Health

“Rich in photos and graphics, its 272 pages are packed with easy to digest information… It is not about eliminating the joy out of eating or eliminating all added sugar, it is about keeping it in a healthy range.”
Long Island Weekly, March 2020
