Outlines a nutrition program that reduces food cravings

Simon and Schuster
Can't say no to fattening foods, alcohol or compulsive behaviors? You're not lazy, self-indulgent or undisciplined; you may be one of the millions of people who are sugar sensitive. Many people who suffer from sugar sensitivity don't even know it; they continue to consume large quantities of sweets, breads, pasta or alcohol. These foods can trigger feelings of exhaustion and low self-esteem, yet their biochemical impact makes sugar-sensitive people crave them even more. This vicious cycle can continue for years, leaving sufferers overweight, fatigued, depressed and sometimes alcoholic. Now there is a solution: in Potatoes Not Prozac Dr. Kathleen DesMaisons gives you the tools you need to overcome sugar dependency, with self-tests to determine your sugar sensitivity as well as an easy-to-follow, drug-free program with a customized diet high in protein and complex carbohydrates. Join the thousands of people who have successfully healed their addiction to sugar, lost weight and attained maximum health and well-being by using Dr. DesMaisons's innovative plan.

Excellent lay explanation of the workings of anti-depressants and other common drugs such as coffee, sugar and nicotine on the body. I'll recommend it.

This book pretty much hit the nail on the head for me. I really recommend it for anyone who is addicted to sugar or "white" carbs, it's very helpful and is a "wake-up call".
