The Sweetest Conspiracy: The Great Sugar Dilemma was written to scare you! Kamla Forbes is a Registered Physiotherapist and Weight Management Consultant with over 20 years in the health and wellness industry in Jamaica. Forbes, a former fitness competitor and model, takes a look at the monumental increase in sugar consumption especially in post colonial Jamaica which is directly proportional to the increase in the incidence of Non-Communicable Disease manifestation. The book was written against the backdrop of the country’s impending war against sugar consumption that has been recently undertaken by the Government of Jamaica. Most of us never keep track of the sugar in our foods. This book teaches you how to not only keep track of sugar but how to identify how much sugar the food you eat contains. The author examines the increasing role that sugar addiction plays in the development of most Non-Communicable Diseases. The book takes you on a complete journey through the human body, from the intake of the nutrients needed for the body to function on a day to day basis to how foods are broken down and used when we are most active versus when we are at rest. Most people don’t make the connection between consuming too much sugar and chronic inflammation, which gives rise to some of the most common diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, high blood pressure, some cancers, and of course, obesity. It explains in detail what happens when too much of one food type is consumed, especially carbohydrates. It then delves into how food manufacturers and beverage companies find innovative ways to keep the population addicted to sugary products, paying special attention to the many presentations of sugar and the deleterious consequences of over consumption of sugary foods. We take a close look at High Fructose Corn Syrup and the particularly dangerous effects of its consumption even in moderate quantities. The book gives you a step by step guide to breaking free of sugar addiction using several methods such as the Sugar Detox Method and the Gradual Reduction Method. The author also explains the role that sugar substitutes play and pinpoints which types do more harm than good. Reducing sugar consumption in children and teaching them how to make better food choices is also an important task covered in the book.
