Sarah Wilson, one of my favorite bloggers/inspirations in general, is a former news reporter who is a big believer in eating a paleo diet (a diet rich in veggies, meat, eggs, and low in processed foods and grains). I gave her Ebook "I Quit Sugar" a try this past year and in 12 days I felt great. I recommend if you try it really listen to what she has to say and don't try to go cold turkey, which is what I did. Because your blood sugar levels have to adjust and you're weening yourself off of the sugar, it's smart to take small steps and make sure you're eating regularly! Soon you'll begin to notice your skin glowing, clarity of mind, and energy. I did! Although I haven't been strict with her book recently I learned a lot from that 14 day stint I did. (Search "no sugar challenge" on this blog). In general, Sarah Wilson just makes a bunch of sense; her reasoning behind everything she posts is down right logical and she's not into fads or quick-fix diets. She turned to gluten-free, sugar free, because of health concerns she's had, including dealing with auto-immune disease. Sarah continues to research the latest health news and makes eating healthy fun and delicious.
Recently, she posted these videos about her continued experiences in Ikaria, and how their diets differ from ours (and how much less sugar they intake). Also check out her website for paleo workout videos she swears by for traveling, delicious recipes, and reviews from #IQS successes!
