What is I Quit Sugar?
I Quit Sugar is the product of a personal experiment by media personality and health advocate, Sarah Wilson. I Quit Sugar encourages people to lessen their sugar intake through avoiding foods high in fructose and sucrose over an 8-Week period. It is believed during this time our bodies can recalibrate and find a natural appetite without the harmful effects of the white stuff.
