Synopsis

Davina's Five Weeks to Sugar-Free by Davina McCall

'Hi, my name is Davina, and I'm a sugar addict ...' Davina McCall loves a challenge. And giving up sugar has been her toughest yet. In this beautiful cookbook, Davina shares her favourite super-healthy recipes that have helped her kick the sugar habit and cut out junk food for good. These recipes: *are easy to make but taste amazing *contain the foods that help you look and feel great *have no long lists of scary, hard-to-find ingredients This is real food for real life! 5 WEEKS TO SUGAR-FREE also includes a 5 week meal planner that works towards curbing sweet cravings and cutting out all processed foods. Davina is no guru, she's one of us, so her plan also includes pudding recipes that help the most sweet-toothed chocoholic kick the added sugar habit.

Reviews

Davina McCall's book, Davina's 5 Weeks to Sugar-Free promises what it says on the cover. It is sensible stuff with an emphasis on cutting out processed, refined sugars and simple carbohydrates such as white bread, and swapping foods that have a high glycaemic index (GI) rating for foods that have a low GI rating. -- Ann Robinson Guardian What Davina has done is to suggest a gradual approach to reducing sugar intake. It's a perfectly sensible idea to readjust the tastebuds as you change habits over a longer period. Going cold turkey is tough, and for most people the shock of foods suddenly tasting bland will soon mean they return to the old ways. -- Matt Roberts Mail on Sunday It's packed with inspirational tips and scrumptious recipes - the opposite of deprivation! -- Cathy Rentzenbrink Prima Former chocolate fan Davina McCall combines tasty recipes, such as lime and ginger cheesecake, with no-nonsense advice to help eliminate sugar from your life. Woman's Own Fitness fanatic Davina McCall releases her own cookbook packed full of tasty, healthy recipes. Daily Express Her new book is a heartfelt, honest account of her decision to give up her remaining addiction . In it you will find advice, support, humour and recipes that will inspire you to start your own sugar-free eating plan. Hello!
