The Sweet Poison Quit Plan is the 'how to' supplement to the best-selling Sweet Poison. It features:

Packed with reader anecdotes and lists to help you organise your sugar-free life, this book presents one of the most accessible and achievable strategies around for losing weight and avoiding some of the more pernicious lifestyle diseases that are increasingly associated with excessive sugar consumption.
