I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-week Detox Program and Cookbook
Author: Sarah Wilson
Sarah Wilson created a very welcoming text as she opens with a “A Little Dedication” stating “You’re not alone, We’re all in this Together.” Wilson shares her story and encourages others to make positive changes for their own sake. The foreword by Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow and New York Times best-selling author (p. 9), shares his studies of those living to be 100, as well as, his opinion on Sara Wilsons approach to eating. Sarah helps us understand the realities of our lives in relation to sugar consumption and presents a down to earth explanation and solution to our current circumstances with food. Her eight week program is simple to understand and the recipes easy to prepare as they are just a matter of switching out ingredients. Most of the recipes are what she calls “Paleo-suitable with some great vegetarian and vegan options provided” (p. 5) As she explains we are designed to eat 6-9 teaspoons of sugar a day one realizes that 24-36 grams of sugar daily is the limit most tend to exceed daily. She points out the science that fructose is the evil culprit because it makes one eat more, coverts to fat and causes illness (p. 17). Her alternatives, starting with the “9 C’s of goodness” are easy to use and I have converted to most of them already. I love her approach to the topic. Simple recipes include a range from homemade ketchup, and other sauces to breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes that sure to please. The education one receives while on this very valuable journey to health is priceless with benefits in mind, body and spirit. Book Review by LG
