I Quit Sugar – Book Review
I’m sure you know that sugar is bad for you.
I’m sure you know that most of us consume way too much sugar in our daily diets.
But – the question is – are you aware of just how much havoc sugar is wreaking on your bodies and what are you prepared to do about it?
In her book, I Quit Sugar – Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program & Cookbook, Aussie author and blogger Sarah Wilson shares what happened when she got tired of feeling sick and tired all of the time as a result of too much sugar in her diet.
I Quit Sugar contains Sarah’s story about how she discovered she was addicted to sugar – the reason she decided to remove sugar from her life – and her tips and recipes for helping you to do the same.
Be forewarned – Sarah’s program is not for the faint of heart!
In fact, you could call her program a little extreme.
Sarah advocates the elimination of excess sugar from our diets by advocating we focus instead on eating fats. Stuff like chicken skin… bacon… full-fat dairy products like milk and cheese…
I’m sure doctors who are trying to get their patients to eat heart healthy would take exception to some of the dietary recommendations she is making in her book!
The bottom line is this: while I Quit Sugar contains some useful information and interesting recipes that could help you towards your goals for a healthier lifestyle, you really need to discuss Sarah’s program with your doctor before delving into this program.
Overall, I think your opinion of I Quit Sugar will depend in large part in what you expect from it.
Graphically speaking, in many ways I Quit Sugar reminds me of Pinterest on paper. The book contains 108 recipes – many of which are beautifully photographed – as well as Infographics, presented in a cool, color-coordinated palette.
Unfortunately, while the book is pretty to look at, the print is very tiny and difficult to read. The book was obviously not designed with older readers in mind.
If you’re looking for quick tips and tidbits of advice and gravitate towards simple, whole-foods-style diets, Sarah’s recipes may appeal to you.
However, if you’re looking for hearty standard fare that will feed your growing family while you try to lighten things up – this book will probably not meet your needs.
I rate this book 3 out of 5 stars.
