We’ve been banging on about Quitting Sugar here for sometime now – I quit 16 months ago and haven’t looked back – I talk about my favourite health guides (as I call them) Christine Cronau, David Gillespie and Sarah Wilson on a regular basis.

Excitingly for Sarah, she’s just released her first hard copy book, the culmination of the runaway success of her I Quit Sugar e-books, that help you quit sugar and take back your health and you just have to get it!!

If you are wanting to take control of your health and what you eat and how you nourish your body from the inside, I cannot recommend the I Quit Sugar program enough.  The way Sarah has been able to break the program down into a completely doable, week-by-week guide that holds your hand the whole way through the detoxing process is just one of the simplest programs I’ve ever done and stuck to.

And don’t think Sarah hasn’t done her research, she has but we say run don’t walk and also pick up a copy of David Gillespie’s book Big Fat Lies, it goes into more detail about how embedded sugar and seed oils have become in our lives and how they are ‘killing’ us quietly.


But back to Sarah, Sarah has completely simplified the process of how to eat from a whole foods nourishment perspective – seriously she makes it so easy to quit and stick with the new way of nourishing our bodies.

Those who’ve tried giving up sugar before will realise how difficult it is – the cravings, avoiding hidden sugars, manoeuvring outings with friends, but Sarah provides easy and effortless alternatives that won’t leave you feeling deprived.

Sarah makes making the transition so easy. She guides you through the basics of setting up a sustainable kitchen – stocking your kitchen with nutritious goodies, packing your freezer with easy-to-reach ingredients and gently opens your eyes to the misguided world of food labels. You’ll be tempted to root around your pantry after reading, and we can guarantee you’ll be shocked at the amount of sugar in your food.

Sarah’s recipes really shine in this book (there’s 108) – simple, approachable and with only a few ingredients that appear again and again. The few new items you may have to go out and buy are reused throughout the cookbook, so you won’t have any odd ingredients lying around. She has recipes for every occasion – hearty breakfasts, luscious smoothies, warm and nutritious dinners and even some amazingly guilt-free sweet treats.


Sarah’s voice is refreshing throughout the book – modern, relaxed but well-researched. She is guiding and supportive without being preachy, and unlike many lifestyle books provides solutions that anyone, even families can tackle. The other great thing about her book is the recipes are really easily to adapt to build your own favourites from.

Like me, I am sure you will find it an easy program to follow and stick with and then it just becomes your way of life, naturally and wholeheartedly … I love it, I’m just thriving on it without even trying now – but don’t be fooled, I had to try really hard to kick it at the beginning, it’s such a release to no longer have cravings and function the way we were designed to – it’s one less thing to worry about.

I have a number of favourite recipes that I use week in and week out … and I never get tired of them.

This book has been super popular, (clearly there are a lot of people like me who love their hard copies) the publishers are now on their fifth print run, you can read all about the successful sell-outs on Sarah’s blog, and we recommend you visit her site on a regular basis, she’s always keeping it updated with her latest discoveries.

I’m so grateful for Christine, David and Sarah, I definitely feel like I’m back in control and doing the right thing by my mind and body.

And don’t be overwhelmed, this book will be the best money you’ll ever spend on your health, it’s not a fad, it’s a way of life.
