I remember reading the pre-release information for the book I Didn’t Quit Sugar and thinking that it would be great to look for once it came out. But today, after looking at some blogs that recommend it, I was interested to see how it did but couldn’t find it. It is no longer available on Amazon and the blogs that featured it have also confirmed that. However, in my limited research today I couldn’t find out any information about why it was pulled or what happened to it. Conspiracy? Controversy? Anyone know about it?
Here’s an example blog post- http://empoweredsustenance.com/sugar-its-your-friend/July 18, 2013 at 3:18 am #9371
One of the authors has a FB page called Nutrition By Nature. They pulled the ebook and never released their cookbook. I think people have asked on the FB page but it never gets answered.July 18, 2013 at 11:01 pm #9481Matt StoneKeymaster
Hopefully they are going to hold off and release it on vendors like Amazon. I chatted with them back and forth and encouraged them to do that. They sent me a copy, but I honestly haven’t had time to read through it. I just saw my name in it and figured it must be an incredible masterpiece of a book, lol.July 18, 2013 at 11:53 pm #9492
Okay, thanks KC and Matt. I hope it has a chance to see the light of day soon!July 19, 2013 at 3:05 am #9500
I bought the book before it was pulled….. And it’s because of that book that I am here! After reading the book I bought Matt’s books and have been following his advice since Easter.
I first heard of Matt from a Paleo Summit. I didn’t listen to his talk though cos I’d just found THE ANSWER for me – Kruse’s Protocol haha!
Soooo good to eat carbs!July 19, 2013 at 5:39 am #9503
@KC what attracted you to the book and what did you like about it? Swimming around the 180D world, I know that it’s hard for outsiders to see through the muck and hop on the sugar-is-NOT-the-devil train that Matt is conducting over here.July 19, 2013 at 7:23 am #9505
I would often read Sarah Wilson’s blog. She wrote the I Quit Sugar books. At that point I was looking for an alternative and someone had written in the comments section about the I Didn’t Quit Sugar book. I read a few articles about the book and decided to purchase it. Really I was looking for an alternative to the whole low carb thing.
It’s a very easy to read ebook with lots of pictures. Can easily read it in one sitting. Goes over the basics of why sugar is beneficial. Sugar (among other things) as an anti-stressor was a huge ah-ha moment for me. They mainly recommend unprocessed foods, gelatin, salted orange juice. For carbs they lean towards fruit, root veg, white rice, but if bread can be tolerated then sourdough is a good option. I think it’s a great intro into the sugar isn’t evil camp. The book has nice photos, some simple science explanations and ideas on how to incorporate the different macros into the diet (meal suggestions and a few recipes).
I include those foods but I needed more processed foods and lots of rest to begin with, which is why I started following Matt’s advice first. I needed to go all out, no restrictions to deal with ED. I plan to gradually include more and more ‘wholesome’ foods over the next few weeks which is more inline with the IDQS book.
So yeah, a good intro but left me wanting more so I looked into their recommended readings and for me, Matt’s work stood out to me as being the next step. Also it was around Easter time and I wanted to eat Hot Cross Buns and chocolate in the name of health ;)July 19, 2013 at 1:25 pm #9538saisriceParticipant
I want to read this book! KC, I forgot about Kruse’s protocol! I tried that too but only for a few days in my paleo/primal day. Couldn’t hack it but I really thought it sounded like the cure for me.
