Better than I was expecting

This e-book is pretty solid advice. I must confess I was expecting an Australian accented narrator, and some of the Aussie vernacular sits badly with the dulcet American narration. It took me out of the narration every now and again and I'd be contemplating accents, rather than information.
But as someone who has tried with varying levels of success to quit sugar a few times, this approach is workable for me. I like that Sarah Wilson includes references to the research she has used and that she is honest about the detox process being potentially uncomfortable and difficult. Overall it's pretty solid. It does what it says on the box.
My issue with the narration is a personal preference. She's a good narrator, it just didn't work for me.

Information we should all be aware of.

I honestly cannot see myself being completely sugar free, but with this knowledge I will be much more careful about what I put into my and my family's bodies.
I also purchased the actual book, great recipes.

Some useful pointers with out labouring on it

enjoyed no pressure suggestion to limit sugar intake. It does promote eating a lot of dairy though ...

Terrible!

To listen to an Australian authors book read with such a strong American accent was excruciating!
Apart from that, Sarah Wilsons scientific evidence needs to be more than a 'sneaking suspicion' that sugar was the root of every problem she ever had.

Fascinating! Loved it.

Amazing information presented in a clear, simple step by step format. This has truly changed the way I look at food.

Save your money and use google!

Any 'real' information in here can be found on google by searching sugar content of food, or recommended sugar intake. I didn't find the book motivating or enlightening in anyway. Just my personal opinion of course. Sarah is a very well respected author and health coach, and I will continue to look at her work. This one just didn't hit the spot for me at all.

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!

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.

An easy listen, lots of good info

Highly recommend this short, east listen. Helps you choose whether or not to take the IQS plunge! I'm getting ready to splash now!

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!

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.

I’m so thankful for I Quit Sugar

I Quit Sugar was the only program that I’ve ever used where the pounds melted off easily and I was actually able to kick my overpowering sweet tooth. My husband and I actually did the program for 100 days (I like a nice, round number!) and I lost almost 20 lbs. I had a knee injury so I didn’t exercise like the program recommended (doctors orders were to stay off of my knee for a few months, using crutches), so I can’t imagine how much more weight I would have lost if I was exercising.

I initially did the program to get rid of my sugar addiction, so the weight loss was an added bonus. It was amazing how my body reacted, like it couldn’t wait to get all of that junk out of my system. Plus, I feel so well educated now about healthy fats, food alternatives (like cinnamon!), and mindset practices to get through a nasty craving. Knowing that a happy life is possible without sugar has forever changed me.

Boring

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

Collection of tips on how to cut sugar

Would you try another book written by Sarah Wilson or narrated by Jessica Geffen?

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.

Any additional comments?

As a British English speaker, I would have preferred a British English narrator to the Australian accent.
