I Quit Sugar for Life Book Launch May 8th – Competition Time!!

I have to thank a wonderful lady for opening my eyes to sugar: Miss Sarah Wilson, and what a mega babe she is…

iqs4lAs I have mentioned before, I first came across her original book ‘I Quit Sugar’ whilst travelling in Australia. Her holistic approach to food completely inspired me and I have not turned back since. Her books are accessible and not ‘preachy’ – which is important, as who wants to feel guilty when they fall of the bandwagon, or eat like a rabbit the rest of their lives?! Her original book documents the 8-week quitting sugar programme (which I whole heartedly recommend!), alongside tips and tonnes of yummy recipes. That is why I was SUPER DUPER excited when I heard she was releasing ‘I Quit Sugar for Life’, the sequel to her first masterpiece!

I was very privileged to be invited along to her UK book launch in trendy Shoreditch, London, where we wined, dined and rejoiced all things low-fructose whilst Sarah provided words of wisdom.

Sarah explained that her new book (released May 8th in the UK) is about living a sustainable life: not just through consuming low fructose and wholesome food, but also caring about where the food has come from (back away food industry giants!!). IQS for Life also emphasizes the importance of wellness, not following faddy diets and being concious of what we eat. Plus the low-fructose recipes are fantastic, creative and so easy! This is why Sarah is so great.

So, I have a great giveaway for 3 lucky blog readers! You can win 1 of 3 copies of ‘I Quit Sugar for Life’ by simply subscribing to my blog and posting on twitter why you should win to @BeyondSugarVeil @IQuitSugar with #iqsforlife

Also, as a bonus, here is a sneak peak recipe from Sarah’s book: Berry Omelette

  1. Hello and thank you for your service,
    I believe I should win #iqsforlife because I’m a chef who cooks for monks and the public everyday, many of them are over weight and believe that low fat foods are the answer to there problem. I also have two children that I cook for, so everyday I’m cooking for many people including my family and having this book in my tool kit will help me to educate inform and provide life changing shifts in the way that people including my self think about sugar and the food they are consuming. On a personal note when I was 18 I walked into a meeting and loaded my coffee up with several tsp of sugar grande a handful of cookies and started to listen to people talk about overcoming addictions it was a big help and changed my life for the better bit I believe I was substituting one addiction for another and never realized it until now. That sugar I have been dumping in my coffee several times a day has been killing me and I didn’t know it. Thanks for the wake up call! And for giving me the chance to change my life again and be able to pass on my freedom from sugar!
    Warmest regards,
    Waltet
