I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson is a step-by-step guide for getting off your addiction to sugar, complemented by 108 sugar-free recipes that will leave you happy and satisfied. It's full of tips and tricks and techniques that will help you eliminate the white stuff for good.
The recipe chapters:
This book is a compendium of all things that Sarah personally ate and treated herself to while giving up sugar. The recipes are a combination of her quirky "inventions" as well as a few contributions from some of her lovely, health-focused friends and family. Sarah herself admits that she's no white-coated expert, but she did succeed in ridding her life of sugar and experienced first-hand everything that work and everything that didn't. And now she wants to share her journey, her experience, and her knowledge with you.
"I wrote this for everyone who's ever struggled with their eating and their health. And then given themselves a stinkin' hard time for not finding a way to get on top of things. And I wish to say to you all: you're not alone. We're all in this together."
"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 and Big Fat Lies)
"Sarah's put gourmet back into nutrition. Her well-balanced understanding in the therapeutic value of food, personal sugar-quitting journey and inventive mind has led to the creation of these fabulous eats. This book is welcomed with open arms. Sarah is truly an inspiration and a gift to the wellness industry." - Nat Kringoudis (Doctor of traditional Chinese Medicine, acupuncturist, natural fertility educator and blogger)
"Sarah Wilson breaks things down in easy to assimilate bite-sized pieces and leaves you with the feeling she is right there holding your hand, as someone who has been there and understands. Sarah herself is a walking advertisement for her own accomplishments and quitting sugar, with Sarah Wilson's help, is the best first step toward total physical and mental health that anyone can take." - Nora Gedqaudas (CNS, CNT, author of Primal Body, Primal Mind: Beyond the Paleo Diet for Total Health and a Longer Life)

I have read only the first week, and like the idea of "wheening off" the sugar, not a straight out break off like most diets. I have studied all foods in my cupboard and am so surprise what has sugar, crackers, milk etc.
Can't wait to get through the full programme, but with Xmas round the corner I will be doing it slower than most people. I have started cutting out sugar when not necessary.

I love this book. I previously began my quitting sugar journey from my first purchase, I quit sugar for life. I now feel that I have a much better understanding of the effects of sugar on the body, and now also the good effect of fats and proteins.
I have gained valuable knowledge from Sarah's saving time and money hints in my cooking. I now love my slow cooker, and cooking in general.
This is my second copy of this book, which I ordered for a friend who is really struggling with sugar addiction. I felt the book will give her step-by-step guidelines in quitting sugar. I also purchased the slow cooker recipe book.

I am really, really impressed with this book. Not just the great sugar-free recipes, but the sheer volume of valuable scientific information about sugar and more. A very intelligently written and well-researched book, and I could not recommend it more highly. I was a chronic sugar addict, and I thought it would be impossible to make positive changes in this area of my life, but Sarah Wilson introduces the concept quitting sugar in such a gentle and simple way that I easily adapted to the 8-week detox program and am feeling SOOOO much better as a result! Thank you so much Sarah, this book has improved my life more than I could ever have hoped for.

Wonderful books and website! i have been trying on my own to quit sugar for over 12months...some success but keep falling off the wagon...finally have the family on board and have bought a few IQS cookbooks....this has been amazing. great food, easy to make, totally yummy....havent had sugar for 3 weeks now, detox wasnt bad as i have slowly gotten better over the year. my kids are now sugar free as well. i have lost 3kgs already, and thats without any extra movement, i actually spent 1 week laying on couch due to serious sprained ankle, that i'm almost recovered from. so to Sarah and all at IQS i thank you from the bottom of my heart!!! you have changed my life. i know its still a long road ahead, but i dont even crave sweet stuff anymore so i know i will be ok.

Very informative, but still keeping it real. I am still learning some of the ingredients and their uses, but life is all about learning.

I'm only up to page 36 (of 212) but I am LOVING this book. I particularly enjoy the light-hearted, encouraging style. Sarah avoids any hint of bossiness or condescending language...yet she's telling us to give up a much-loved addiction...I want to dislike her but I just can't! Great book, beautiful recipes, well-researched. Thanks to Sarah and all involved.
