Overview

A New York Times bestseller, I Quit Sugar is week-by-week guide to quitting sugar to lose weight; boost energy; and improve your looks, mood, and overall health, with 108 sugarfree recipes.

Sarah Wilson thought of herself as a relatively healthy eater. She didn't realize how much sugar was hidden in her diet, or how much it was affecting her well-being. When she learned that her sugar consumption could be the source of a lifetime of mood swings, fluctuating weight, sleep problems, and thyroid disease, she knew she had to make a change.

What started as an experiment to eliminate sugar--both the obvious and the hidden kinds--soon became a way of life, and now Sarah shows you how you can quit sugar too:

* follow a flexible and very doable 8-week plan
* overcome cravings
* make food you're excited to eat with these 108 recipes for detox meals, savory snacks, and sweet treats from Sarah Wilson and contributors including Gwyneth Paltrow, Curtis Stone, Dr. Robert Lustig (The Fat Chance Cookbook), Sarma Melngailis (Raw Food/ Real World), Joe "the Juicer" Cross, and Angela Liddon (Oh She Glows)

I Quit Sugar makes it easy to kick the habit for good, lose weight, and feel better than ever before. When you are nourished with delicious meals and treats, you won't miss the sugar for an instant.

"When I quit sugar 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

We all know sugar is bad for us, but quitting isn't easy. In this book, Sarah Wilson not only provides motivation by explaining how she broke her own lifelong habit; she lays down a detailed week-by-week plan, complete with more than 100 recipes to get through without painful cold turkey withdrawals. Think of it as life-enhancing investment.

    This book intrigues me - First of all because I KNOW I AM addict

    This book intrigues me - First of all because I KNOW I AM addicted to sugar. And secondly because I have gone somewhat sugar free before and felt much better than I do on a regular basis. My biggest problem... I always seem to get back in the sugar groove. 
    Now days, it sure seems like everything is bad for you - the sun, water... Seriously?.... and sugar. So how do we become healthy people without stressing so much about everything we do, eat, etc... I am yet to figure that one out. 
    Sarah Wilson describes the negative effects of sugar, especially fructose, but also the alternative, artificial sweeteners. I like knowing the "why's", hence another reason why I like this book. She also gives an 8 week plan which does not begin with quitting sugar cold turkey, instead you begin by weaning yourself off of it and intake smaller doses until you quit altogether. Sarah also gives quite a few recipes, tips, and much more to encourage your journey. 
    And one thing I liked that she mentioned went something like this - Do not expect a sugar free craze to take over our country or universe any time soon. Sugar is just too important to producers and consumers. Everyone will NOT be in on quitting sugar.
    And yet, I would like to eat healthier for personal benefits, and also would like to teach my children to eat healthier, at least for the majority of the time. My biggest struggles are finding recipes that I like, enough "healthy" foods to eat since I am not a huge vegetable eater, and even finances can play in since in some cases it seems eating healthy is more expensive although I am not sure if that is true or just seems to be that way.
    Sarah's recipes do call for quite a few items I do not stock at all, but she also gives a list of places these items may be found. I have not yet checked into the cost of the items.  I have noticed though as I begin to pay attention to the things I am eating that include sugar or fructose, it seems to be in just about everything. 

    I received this book from Blogging for Books program in exchange for my unbiased opinion.
