More About the Author

David Gillespie is a recovering corporate lawyer, former co-founder of a successful software company and investor in several software startups.

He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins). With such a lot of extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat.

He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself.

His first book, Sweet Poison, published in 2008 is widely credited with starting the current Australian wave of anti-sugar sentiment. His most recent book, Toxic Oil, takes the arguments in Sweet Poison and extends them to the widespread use of seed oils in the modern diet.

In his next book, Free Schools, David applies his investigative skills to solving one of the other great problems every parent knows well - how to choose the best school for their kids.

These recipes are not "sugar free" but use Dextrose .. which is high GI and is SUGAR! To claim he has given up sugar is a misrepresentation ... Not suitable for diabetics or those wanting to give up Sugar!!

Absolutely useless for anyone on strict no sugar diet. Every single recipe uses dextrose - the sugar that raises GI levels to 100 (max amount!) Nothing but filling the gaps with more sugar, calling it something different and hoping nobody notices! Perhaps fine for anyone looking for mildly more healthy recipes but absolutely not what it says on the tin and not appropriate for anyone medically needing no sugar recipes.

This book is a miracle. What a joy to be able to make delicious desserts without the added sugar. All tried and tested. My daughter in law bakes every day and is so enamoured with my copy, I have bought a second one for her.

Sugar means extra weight and cutting it from your diet, should mean you easily lose weight. I know because I have done it myself with another famous book written by a TV personality. Not only that but I gained energy and lost the aches and pains. David has written this book to provide you with sugar free treats that use healthy alternatives. It features more than 80 illustrated recipes. However, most of them include dextrose. It is a form of glucose derived from plants and naturally occurs in honey. In fact it is sometimes known as glucose, but is more correctly D-glucose. What this book is about is replacing glucose with dextrose. You need to completely rid your body of other sugars first. I am not happy with the title of this book- The Alternative Sugar would have been less misleading. The recipes look good, easy to make and are well photographed. Yet again, they don't look particularly healthy or what would aid a slimmer's diet - coconut, cream, glucose syrup. This is a delightful cookbook, but I don't think it does what the title suggests.

After watching the truth about sugar. I decided I wanted to quit sugar. David gillespie wrote the book sweet poison and has lost a lot of weight and improved his health. The recipe's are made using dextrose. But it is the good half of sugar not the frucose type in cane sugar. Some of the ingredients would have to buy from a health shop. So far I have tried the carrot cake. It was delicious.

So far ive tried the coconut cocoa bars and the christmas cupcakes and they are delicious. Im a week into sugar free eating and this book is making it an easy ride. Ive lost 2lbs this week without trying at all. recipes are easy to follow and the dextrose (beer making sugar) is easy to get hold of and cheap. I got mine from my local Wilko store.

Ingredients not readily available in UK. As a diabetic thought this would be suitable but most recepies include dextrose not suitable for diabetics

Better than expected, I thought it would just repeat the recipes from his other books. This would ha been fine as recipes are hard to follow on a kindle but this book has lots of new treats which will hide the fact you are cutting down sugar to all your friends and family. Been very happy with the ones we have already tried and even more happy to be losing weight whilst doing it!!!!!
