Amazon Sug Sh 51RDZ7DBVAL._SL110_Drum roll… I'm pleased to announce that my next book — the follow-up to Sugar Shockhas a new title. It's called Beyond Sugar Shock.

The subtitle is The 6-Week Plan to Break Free of Your Sugar Addiction & Get a Slimmer, Sexier, Sweeter Life.

The winner of the Name My Next Book Contest is Donna, the innovative, helpful Twitter user @RHfan58, who was sweet enough to tweet not one, but five suggestions, for the book title.

She suggested Beyond Sugar. She's the hands-down winner, because after looking at her suggestion, I simply added Shock to the title — it was so obvious. Donna, thank you for your fabulous idea! We love it! And please reply to my personal message on Twitter so I can give you your gifts. (See below for your gifts.)

Also, thanks to the many amazing people who helped give the follow-up to Sugar Shock a title. I'm so grateful to all of you for taking time out of your busy schedule to enter the Name My Next Book Contest and submit suggestions on this Sugar Shock Blog, the Facebook Smart Habits Fans page or via emails to me.
