Reducing your sugar intake is one of the best and easiest ways to improve your health. If you eat more home cooked whole foods and cut back on the soft drinks and processed foods, the amount of sugar you consume will naturally decrease and you will find it much easier to maintain your ideal weight.
I removed excess sugar from my diet 3 years ago, and noticed a huge improvement in my health. I found the Sarah Wilson I Quit Sugar cookbooks full of great information. I particularly like the yellow chicken curry in the slow cooker cookbook. She also has one pot, breakfast and chocolate cookbooks!
You can also try the bundle with the 8 week program included along with the book. This is a great way to get support to kick your sugar habit.
