"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 damages of sugar.

- 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.

Not sure what to have to breakfast other than sugar-loaded cereal? I Quit Sugar is for you, if only for the amazing breakfast food and smoothie sections.
The best part is that you can effortlessly create these recipes as most of the delightfully delicious ingredients in the recipes can be purchased from your local shopping centre or the local green grocers.
