I love what you are doing and the way that you do it. I used to think that if i just told someone to quit the sugary stuff they would do it. I usually lost those patients. I didn't realize how locked into the sweet taste must people are--really addicted. You propose an easy solution, gradualism, or getting the sweet taste and good nutrition at the same time. I need your book to enhance my almost effective doctor-patient rapport. I can say 'do it' and I know they can. (Lendon H. Smith, MD, author of Feed Your Kids Right)
