I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson Book Review

http://www.randomhouse.com/images/dyn/cover/?source=9780804186018&width=125 
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:

My Thoughts:

I have a sweet tooth and since January of this year I have cut the majority of sugar from my diet. The first thing I noticed was that I have more energy and I have also lost a lot of weight. The title of this book grabbed my attention.

This is a full colored book that is very pleasing to the eyes. I Quit Sugar is a very easy to read book that is easy to navigate through the pages. There are lots of fun tips throughout the pages of the book.

The Detox portion grabbed my attention. Removing sugar from your diet is not as easy as it sounds. Sarah Wilson recommends a slow reduction of sugar until it is gone from your diet. This is supposed to be an 8 week detox program. There is some good information but, I feel that it lacks in information and may not be a complete detox program to keep someone on track. I think I was looking for a bit more information that explains more facts and such. I got the feeling that she felt all sugars are bad but, was not quite sure her take on it. I feel some types of sugars are beneficial for your body and was hoping that she would touch on certain areas.

There are 108 recipes that are for the most part easy to make. I did try a few if the recipes and was very pleased with them. For some people I feel it would be difficult to obtain some of the ingredients unless you are able to order the items online or possibly have them at your local health food store.

I wouldn’t say that I disliked this book it just wasn’t what I was expecting. It’s a good start for someone needing some inspiration to improve their health and get rid of bad sugars. Thank you Sarah for a lovely book that you have obviously put your heart and your passion on the subject shines through in the book.

You can find out more on her Facebook and Twitter.
