This book title is incredibly misleading. Sarah Wilson hasn't given up sugar at all - she just swapped what type of sugar she eats. I brought this book expecting lots of cool sugar-free recipes and instead had to send it back as none of the recipes were sugar free - the white stuff has just been swapped for brown rice syrup, maple syrup and/or stevia. She also uses lots of dried fruit which is also high in sugar.

This book pushes that myth that one type of sugar is better than another, which is rubbish - sugar molecules whatever the source behave the same biologically once consumed and these recipes contained a lot of sugar/fructose. Very disappointed.

If you want a good book about giving up sugar, I would recommend 'Sweet Nothing' by Nicole Mowbray which is cheaper, much more informative (with real science rather than pseudo-science explanations) and she REALLY cut out the sugar. She also provides you with the science behind why fructose, despite it's lower GI is still not good for you. It doesn't have many recipes in (but it does have some), but gives sound advice on what you can and should eat so you can sort yourself out.

Brilliant book. Very easy to read and follow. This isn't a diet book, it's just a sensible way of eating and it really makes sense. Sugar was making me feel ill and I hadn't realised. I have so much more energy now and I have lost weight although this wasn't an issue for me as I was already a normal, healthy weight. My headaches have practically disappeared too. I haven't used any of the sweet recipes though as I'd rather just not eat sweet things anymore. Savoury and full fat are enough and I feel full after every meal so do even think about snacking.
Brilliant.

I did the 8 week detox using Sarah's book and this is a great follow on. The detox helps you to drastically reduce your sugar consumption. In the detox you do quit sugar for a month but then you rebuild in 2 pieces of fruit and the odd treat so it's not completely sugar free but your aiming for about 10g or less a day
I feel so much better, I eat when I'm hungry now and feel in control of my eating rather than food controlling me. My head feels clearer too. I've lost some weight - gradually which is an added bonus. I didn't have sugar in tea and coffee but I did buy some ready meals and some processed foods - so I was probably consuming a lot more sugar than I realised. I've always struggled with my weight and have come to the conclusion that sugar in food could be a factor.
This book is good because there are some menu plans to give you some ideas for your weekly shop. All the receipes I've tried so far have been very tasty. I mostly cook from scratch now which takes more time but is definately more satisfying and I know what's going in my body too.
I love Sarah's philosophy about not wasting food - she sticks to some basic ingredients which means that once you've stocked up you can make a lot of the meals/ treats. Saves on storage and waste. She's also a big fan of using up what you have and a lot of her suggestions are how to use up bits and pieces. BRILL! I also love the fact that although she gives ways of making things like cream cheese she's not to precious about using bought products when you need to.
The only disadvantage I find is it's taking a while to wrap my head around the ideas - but I'm really excited to try. It's a very way of living to what I'm used to and life-style changes are always time consuming.

I have owned this book for a year now, and have tried 18 of the recipes so far. That might not sound like many out of the 148 recipe variations presented, but nearly all of the recipes I have tried are now cooked on a regular basis because they are so good! What's more, a lot of the recipes (particularly the breakfast whips) can be altered or just used to give you an idea, and then you have almost endless variations.

I wasn't new to the idea of sugar-free eating before this book (although practically speaking, I was a long way off actually being sugar-free, I might add!) but was looking for some inspiration. When I first started making the recipes I was just aiming to cook some new dishes, but in particular keep feeding my sweet tooth with sugar-free desserts. A year on, and slowly I have accepted that this approach really just keeps "scratching the itch" and after doing a lot more reading I began to truly understand the philosophy that Sarah embodies: that sugar and sweeteners- in all their forms- needs to be kept pretty much down to the bare minimum: ideally one piece of fruit a day and very occasional treats with added sweeteners like stevia. Only then will your set-point to sweetness decrease and you'll stop feeding the cravings. As a plus-point, you'll always have to eat 'real food' that you have cooked and prepared because sugar is in pretty much everything- smoke bacon, baked beans, mayonnaise!

When I first got this book, I was tending to try the sweet breakfast recipes and a few of the main meals, but as time has gone on, I've become much more willing to try almost anything. Even if the idea sounds simple or not particularly tasty (like the sweet potato casserole on p111 which I now eat as a dessert!) I'll give it a go, and am usually pleasantly surprised.
