Other diets are way too complicated! The SOS (Stop Only Sugar) Diet has only three simple rules: Rule 1. Low Sugar, Rule 2. High Fiber, and everybody's favorite is Rule 3. No More Rules! The short and simple SOS Diet, by Digestive Health expert James A. Surrell, MD, involves only a minor lifestyle change. You too will soon become a "Label Reading Detective" and easily and almost effortlessly lose 5 to 8 pounds per month. Check out the many SOS Diet success stories at www.sosdietbook.com. Like so many others who have never lost weight on any other program, you too will be very successful on the SOS Diet. Get started today!
The best thing about this book is the way it's written. It's really approachable. For anyone thinking about dieting (something I think about all the time!) you need a book or system that you can really connect with it. This is a great book for that. It's not overly scientific and it's easy to follow.
Personally, I couldn't stick to it. But I feel like that's more me than the way the book suggests you do things. I like sugar... well, a lot (not like when I was a kid!) O.O But it's almost impossible to remove sugar options from your life when you have others in it that you manage their foods and nutrition for. Since it's me, hubby, and my 2 little monsters cutting the sugar was almost impossible.
Since I couldn't stick to it, it's hard to say whether it works or doesn't work. But there's a lot of positive reviews out there for it's great success at not only helping you cut the pounds but also lower your cholesterol. That's something that tends to be important if you're worried about your weight in the first place.
Check it out. It might work for you, especially if you don't have to cater your diet to those around you.
James A. Surrell M. D. is a board-certified colorectal surgeon and holds fellowship status in the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons and the American College of Surgeons. He devoted 14 years to formal education with 4 years of pre-med, 4 years of medical school, 5 years of general surgery residency and one year of colorectal surgery fellowship... (Whew)! He has been a practicing colorectal surgeon for the past 20 plus years. Dr. Surrell has authored many articles in various journals on topics related to his specialty of colorectal surgery and digestive health. He has a special interest in nutrition and weight loss programs. As Director of the Digestive Health Institute, his practice is focused on digestive health, including nutrition, dietary weight management and colorectal cancer screening and prevention. He is known in his large practice for his ability to communicate effectively with his patients, and he goes to great lengths not to speak "doctor talk" to his patients. "Doc" or Jim (as he prefers to be called) is also a much sought-after speaker and speaks frequently to local, regional, and national public and professional groups. He blends a significant amount of humor into his many talks and is generally available to speak to nearly any group with an interest in learning more about various topics, including: diet and weight loss, nutrition, cancer prevention, and other healthy lifestyle topics. He also appears frequently on his local "Ask the Doctors" program on Public TV. Here is your author's favorite quote: "There isn't much humor in medicine, but there is a lot of medicine in humor." Dr. Jim feels very strongly that for any weight loss program to be successful, it must be short, simple and easy to understand. Thus was born the SOS Diet - Stop Only Sugar and the "MISS" (Make It Short & Simple) concept. This short and simple SOS Diet has worked so very well for him and for so many of his patients, friends and colleagues for years. He is now most appreciative of this opportunity to present it to you in the form of this short and simple SOS Diet book. Good luck and SOS - Stop Only Sugar!
