Overall, this book helped me trial the sugar-free diet for a few weeks (together with reading Sweet Poison, the actual book that inspired Sarah Wilson). However, due to lack of academic and practical evidence (I didn't have much more energy) I slowly reintroduced most sugar again albeit slightly reduced.
I had to pause this audio book and reflect or make notes quite a lot. It's not a flowing story but rather instructions for a week-by-week program and as such I would have probably preferred a written version to an audio version.
As a British English speaker, I would have preferred a British English narrator to the Australian accent.
"What I wanted and more!"
I just wanted a small book as an intro into what life looks like without sugar, before I go into the bigger more scientific books. This book came through big time. The author tells you what to expect each step of the way and has a very balanced approach.
She gives some recipes and enough scientific backing to show just how important being off sugar is. She says in the beginning of the book being off sugar gave her a sense of calm. That's what motivated me to listen to this book and do what it says. It's been a little more then a week and I can already see a difference with myself emotionally. So yes I recommend this book!
"Going to try this"
I lowered my sugar intake and this takes it to another level. I'm going to try what she recommends. I enjoyed this and very informative.
"A great quick intro"
This was great, a quick introduction to quitting sugar. Loved the casual, low pressure approach and that I could listen to the whole book in a morning, then return over and over.
"Not what I expected"
Not what I expected. Although it was easy to listen to, the book gave more of a story than guidelines of how exactly to break down the 'diet' plan. I also thought it was strange that the recipes were read aloud, but I guess I appreciate the inclusion of them!
Was very boring. An Aussi author so it was read using Kilometers, mm, etc in measurements, weight in kilos. Americans don't measure that was so it was difficult to u understand. Waste of time and money
