The bestselling guide to going sugar-free for good from the author of I Quit Sugar.

Quitting sugar is not a diet. Quitting sugar is a way of living without processed food and eating what our grandparents used to before the crappy food and the modern diseases.

With her bestselling book, I Quit Sugar, Sarah Wilson helped hundreds of thousands of Australians to kick the habit. In I Quit Sugar for Life, Sarah shows you how to be sugar-free forever. Drawing on extensive research and her own tried and tested methods, Sarah has designed specific programs and recipes to help both families and solo cookers:

  • banish cravings and deal with lapses by eating good fats and protein 
  • maximise nutrition with veggies 
  • exercise less for better results 
  • detox safely... without the fads! 
  • eat sustainably and ethically - at home and out 'n' about * live with flow and less fuss 
  • cook sugar-free: 148 desserts, cakes, kids' lunchbox fillers, comfort dinners and tote-able breakfast and lunches.

I Quit Sugar for Life is not just about kicking a habit; it's a complete wellness philosophy for your healthiest, calmest, happiest self.

You might have heard – I’ve written another book, a follow-up to I Quit Sugar: Your Complete 8-Week Detox Program and Cookbook. It’s taken the better part of a year to put together. It’s a reflection, however, of my life’s work.

You can read all about it February 27 when it hits bookshops.

But now I’ll answer some questions I’m reckoning many of you want to ask:
How’s I Quit Sugar For Life different from your first book?

If I Quit Sugar was about how to quit sugar, along with a bunch of recipes to get you started (targeting “problem areas” like breakfast and snacks), I Quit Sugar For Life shows you how to use the sugar-fee approach to live well… in every respect of the word.

•    It’s a 9-part Wellness Code, including fitness, travelling and shopping directions.
•    It builds in a 4-week Wellness Program, plus menu plans for families, singles and those wanting a quick “green” reboot.
•    It includes 148 recipes, all designed for families of four and for singles

What are the principles of this book?

Glad you asked, for the book is pretty much a complete overview of all my wellness and environmental principles rolled in to a flowing, effortless code that’s sustainable…in every respect of the word.

If there was one word to sum up this book it’s “sustainable”.

Some of the themes I include in the code and recipes:

•    The most ethical way to eat
•    How to eat toxin-free
•    Which foods to buy organic…and when not to bother
•    The foods to eat for your gut and for longevity
•    How to save time and money with a slow cooker
And the recipes?
There’s 148 of them (40 more than last time). Some of the ideas….
•    Totally toteable: fun foods to carry to work and school
•    Thai fixes
•    Better than a box: junk food repackaged (my version of KFC, Weiss Bars and barbecue pork)
•    Easter ideas
•    Children’s lunchbox ideas
•    A Very Large Chocolate chapter
•    A stack of gluten-free, paleo and vegan options

What’s my favourite recipe?

Hmmm, the Not So Nicoise Cauliflower Pizza and the Carrot Cake Porridge Whip are up there. Oh, and the Choc-Caramel-Chunk And Peanut Butter Cheesecake.

Does it matter if I haven't done the 8-Week Program?

Not tooooo much. But quitting sugar in a supported way (ie via my first book or my online program) is advised. That said, if you just want to start cooking and eating healthily and sustainably, according to fad-free, wholefood principles, then this book is right for you, too. In the process, you’ll be cutting back on your sugar without thinking about it.

Is it Paleo?

It’s very low-carb, based on sustainable meats and vegetables and toxin-free foods. So, yep. But without the tag.

What if I’m vegetarian?

A good 50 per cent of recipes are vegetarian, the bulk of which are also vegan-friendly.

What if I can’t afford fancy ingredients?

You’re in luck. This book is all about saving money, time and energy. I’ve devoted the past 12 months to ensuring it is.
