The No Sugar Diet Book List

We will help you find the best no sugar diet book for you. There are a few good ones out there, but this list will help you find the one(s) that speaks to you.

In my quest to get our family healthy for the long-haul, I did extensive research to find the books that would not only help us all cut sugar, but eat in a sustainable, healthy way.

No Sugar Diet Books that Produce Results

These are the books that really helped. When I say they really helped, I mean it. As a result of the information in these books, I lost 60 lbs (after baby number two) and my husband lost 100 pounds. We have both kept the weight off for two years now! Moreover, I feel like the lifestyle changes we have made are sustainable.

In addition to the weight loss my family saw, we also saw an increase in energy, an increase in the desire to workout more, better skin, a decrease in inflammation, and the elimination of heartburn/digestive issues. It was a big deal! Also, my 65 year old mom quit sugar and improved her inflammation issues with her arthritis in her hands.

This is my experience, and it has made me a “No Sugar Evangelist.” If you have taken part in our Free Ten Day Sugar Detox Course or read any of our no sugar articles then you will remember many of the other reasons for reducing or eliminating sugar. Such as:

The Top Reasons to Eliminate/Reduce Sugar

  • SUGAR MAKES YOU FAT
    • Some people show sugar fat to the world and some people hide the fat around their organs, but it has the same consequences.
  • SUGAR MAKES YOU SICK
    • Diabetes, Heart Disease, Inflammation, Tooth Decay, Fatty Liver Disease, and probably Alzheimer’s, Cancer and Aging.
  • SUGAR MAKES YOU AN ADDICT
    • Just as some people can be addicted to cigarettes and alcohol, some people are addicted to sugar. Take back your control.

So, let’s get to it! Let’s find you a no sugar diet book to change your life.

The Top No Sugar Diet Book List

1. Why We Get Fat and What to Do About It
By Gary Taubes

Best No Sugar Diet Book: Why we get fat and what to do about it

This is the first no sugar diet book I read that helped me to reevaluate sugar in my life and lose 60 lbs. This is your book if you are like me in that you enjoy learning the science behind everything. Once I understood just how my body works in regards to processing carbs, sugars, and fats, it all just clicked!

That said, Why We Get Fat is actually a more to the point version of Taubes’ book Good Calories, Bad Calories. So, it covers no sugar diet science, but it also delivers a to the point action plan to help you kick your bad habits to the curb.

Thanks to Taubes excellent reporting of the research behind sugar, I will never go back to eating the way I did before.

Extra Credit No Sugar Diet Book: The Case Against Sugar by Gary Taubes

I listened to this one on Audible. It was really the only way even I, an admitted super nerd, could get through it. It is a dry account of how sugar has changed our culture over the last hundred years. However, it is a good and necessary book for America. The information in it is fascinating, in its own way – promise!

2. The Obesity Code
By Jason Fung

the obesity code by jason fung

The Obesity Code is so much more than a no sugar diet book, although it talks about sugar extensively. I will tell you that this book is intense, but it picked up where “Why We Get Fat…” left off in changing our lives forever. It is because of Fung’s book that my husband is now able to keep off the 100 lbs that he lost when we first cut sugar.

Jason Fung, MD is a kidney specialist. As a result, he has a unique perspective on what sugar and processed foods do to our body and organs over time. This is another “science-y” book that takes some time to read. However, it is worth it to get through it. The Obesity Code would be a good one to listen to on Audible.

The book kept me interested to the end. I could not wait to see how all the research in the front of the book would come together in an action plan in the back of the book. I am happy to report that it does. After reading The Obesity Code, I knew what was necessary to keep my family healthy for good.

3. Year of No Sugar: A Memoir
By Eve Schaub

year of no sugar, best no sugar diet book

A Year of No Sugar is a no sugar diet book for those of you who do not like diet books. Written as a memoir, Eve writes about her family’s whole year of living sugar free. They cut out fructose (sugar) completely and this book tells the story of why and how they did it. There is great advice for all of us on how to live sugar free or low sugar – especially with children.

I loved this book. Eve’s journey gave me the motivation to start my own. The book still explains some sugar science, but it is more story than research book. Does that sound better to you? I listened to this one a couple of times as an audio book. It is a good one to listen to. You can try Audible for free with this link if you want to give it a shot.

4. I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook By Sarah Wilson

I quit sugar

If you are looking for a step-by-step process to getting sugar out of your life, Sarah Wilson gives it to you in I Quit Sugar. Remember, sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine. While we have a free 10 Day Sugar Detox for you on this site, sometimes you need a bit more. I Quit Sugar has sugar science, detox advice, a week by week plan, and recipes to help you detox sugar from your diet.

While I didn’t complete her 8 week plan day by day, I did use her book to help in my month to month journey to reduce sugar. I appreciated how she offers advice on how to beat sugar cravings with natural alternatives. In addition, I have used many of her recipes for the last couple years.

No Sugar Book Summary

The Top No sugar diet books to help you eliminate sugar

The No Sugar Diet Book list should give you a good start on your journey to eliminate or reduce sugar. Start with either Why We Get Fat or the Obesity Code if you enjoy reading about the science and research behind why you are cutting out sugar. On the other hand, if you are more motivated by stories, recipes and a little less data, start with Year of No Sugar or I Quit Sugar.

Personally, I read them all and benefited from them all. They are the kind of books you want to own and return to often (or lend to friends). I got a couple of them from the library originally, before deciding I needed to own them all for reference.

Good luck with no sugar! Please let us know how your quitting sugar journey is going.
