About The Diet
This diet is about eating less sugar, something that is beneficial for everyone to consider. The diet works from the premise that the lower your sugar intake is the less insulin will be produced to manage the carb load.
Sugar Busters claims that by cutting the sugar and decreasing the need for your pancreas to produce insulin it will help you lose more weight.
On this plan you will not need to count calories, but you will need to eliminate certain foods from your diet — foods that have a high glycemic index and simple carbs like white bread, white flour, white rice, and white potatoes.
You are still allowed whole grains, low-far proteins and dairy and lots of fruits and vegetables (with a few exceptions).
You can have sugar-free treats and artificial sweeteners, as well as moderate amount of alcohol.
