How an ordinary busy working mum lost 20 kilos by reducing her sugar consumption, teaspoon by teaspoon, and then wrote a runaway bestseller about how she did it.
How many teaspoons of sugar do you consume a day? Amanda Tiffen went from unknowingly ingesting 30 teaspoons of sugar per day to 6 teaspoons per day, and in doing so lost an astonishing 20 kilos. After years of dieting and fighting to control her weight, Amanda easily went from a size 16 to a size 8 in 9 months.
A Life Less Sugar is the inspiring story of how a busy working mum used information from a documentary she had seen on TV and turned that information into her reality. Amanda then enlisted the help of talented cook and good friend Leigh Brown to create low sugar, low carbohydrate delicious dishes. The recipes are easy to follow with no complicated ingredients or methods.
Part memoir, part diet and recipe book, A Life Less Sugar will help you to reduce the high sugar content in some of the most common foods that we find in our supermarkets and pantries, and prepare your own healthy and delicious meals and snacks — leading to a longer, healthier and happier life.
