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!

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.

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.

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.

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.
