Product Description

Product Description

The huge Australian bestseller: kick the sugar habit, lose weight and change your life.

'I lost weight and my skin changed, it cleared. But when I quit the white stuff, I also started to heal. I found wellness and the kind of energy and sparkle I had as a kid. I don't believe in diets or in making eating miserable.This plan and the recipes are designed for lasting wellness.'

Sarah Wilson was a self-confessed sugar addict, eating the equivalent of 25 teaspoons of sugar every day, before making the link between her sugar consumption and a lifetime of mood disorders, fluctuating weight issues, sleep problems and thyroid disease. She knew she had to make a change.

What started as an experiment soon became a way of life, then a campaign to alert others to the health dangers of sugar.

I Quit Sugar uses Sarah's personal experience to help you:

* beat the sugar habit with a tested 8-week plan

* overcome cravings via proven and easy tricks

* find healthy sugar substitutes

* cook sugar-free: 108 desserts, cakes, chocolate, kids' treats, snacks and easy detox meals

'Sarah's down-to-earth, practical approach makes the sugar-quitting process doable, while her recipes make it fun' David Gillespie, author of Sweet Poison

Update, 27/01/2014: Following customer feedback, the Kindle edition has now been updated with a new design.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life changer! 6 April 2014
By Ms.M
Format:Paperback
This book has seriously changed my life, I bought it at the beginning of January as part of my 'get fit and lose weight' New Years resolution, as with every other year the exercise and motivation had fizzled out by February but this, was a different story.

First off I will say you actually need to read the bit at the beginning of the book, I never usually bother but I think hearing some home truths about my excessive sugar consumption and how bad it really is for us is one of the things that helped me stay focused with this new lifestyle.
I was consuming probably double the amount of recommended sugar a day, and felt lethargic and tired all the time, I had a nap every afternoon and struggled to get up for work in the mornings. Since cutting a lot of sugar out my life, I feel like a new person, I have much more energy and actually feel like exercising. As a result, I have lost two stone since mid January and the pounds are still dropping off.
At first this book was about helping me lose weight but seeing the positive impact it has on my health, that's not my main goal anymore, and I see this as more of a lifestyle change than a diet.

The recipes themselves are delicious.
Although Sarah is Australian and at first I found myself thinking 'What the heck are half these ingredients?!' I soon noticed a pattern in the book, that she keeps the ingredients to a limited amount using the same ones in a lot of recipes so once you've bought them, you can use them for a multitude of things and they won't go to waste collecting dust at the back of your cupboard.
I found most of the ingredients, which there is a list of in the book, either here on Amazon or in my local supermarket/health shops. They weren't as foreign as I thought, and most are relatively cheap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Has seriously changed my life and diet 15 Mar 2014
Format:Paperback
Was given this by my sister, who has been diagnosed with diabetes so is really watching her health now. Loved the casual, conversation style writing but originally felt it was very light in content - like others, I was expecting a full on weekly meal plan like other diet type books.
However as I liked the principles and have seen a lot of scientific research that backs up the sugar issues (so don't understand how others are saying this lacks scientific evidence!) I thought I would give it a go and give up sugar.
When I re-read the book and started taking notes on what to avoid, what to swap out and started writing down breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner ideas and assessing what I could drink, I suddenly found I had loads of written notes and actually this book holds everything you need to do a detox. It just doesn't force you down some prescribed meal plan - you have to think about what you eat already, consider what is high in sugar, look at labels and then use Sarah's advice to swap things around.
This detox completely changed my life - I lost 10kgs in around 6 weeks and am still consistently losing weight each week - without even thinking about it and still enjoying food. The tips around swapping out sweet treats for fats are excellent - as someone who was a total chocolate addict, I now snack on yoghurt, nuts and the occasional piece of 90% dark chocolate, and most of the time I don't even feel the need to snack. I sleep better, I have more energy and no longer feel fatigued all the time, and I am inspired to look at other blogs and books on healthy eating - including raw, vegan and vegetarian options.

I finished the 8 week programme last week. I like the layout of this IQS book, the way it's written, Sarah Wilson's straight talking advise and explaining of the science behind it. It all made sense. I liked the fact that she was 'kind' and asked you to be kind to yourself too. And I enjoyed eating butter and cheese etc and drinking a glass of wine without feeling guilty.

I now feel less bloated and don't get suddenly hungry and desperate for sugar like I used to. Her recipes keep you fuller for longer and I found it pretty easy to say no to cakes 99% of the time with the occasional birthday cake lapse.

I feel leaner but have not actually lost any weight, which is a bit of a disappointment. However, maybe this is now my natural weight as a forty something woman.

I sympathise with other reviewers who found some of Sarah Wilson's ingredients strange or baffling, but as my husband is gluten-intolerant, I was already used to 'weird' foodstuffs about the house. Having said that, some of her recipes were more successful and tasty than others. Personally I hate the taste of stevia and couldn't understand why she wanted to put it into essentially savoury pumpkin and chai muffins, so I just didn't add it. Also, Sarah being Australian clearly doesn't realise it's nigh on impossible to get hold of pumpkins in the UK except in the run up to Halloween, so I have had to use other ingredients instead for some of her recipes (she does seem to like her pumpkins!)

I intend to keep up with this as it all makes such good sense. I now equate fructose with fat. It's as simple as that.
