Getting Started on the 8-Week Program

Nearly 2 million people have ditched sugar with our 8-Week Program and watched their mental and physical health improve before their eyes.

If you’re keen to embark on a health revolution with I Quit Sugar, read below to get to know more about the program. 

Previous members have enjoyed weight loss, improved mood and relief from digestive issues like indigestion and acid reflux. Have a look at how to make the most out of the program so you too can experience freedom from sugar-related health problems. Here is everything you need to know about our exclusive Members Only content with everything from weekly meal plans to exciting new content from our panel of experts.

Meal plans and downloadable shopping lists.

With our health experts including nutritionists and dieticians, we’ve crafted balanced meal plans that incorporate all those essential nutrients and food groups to give your body the energy it needs to power through the program – and beyond.

Our plans include these essentials:

  1. Healthy fats from foods like avocado, nuts and nut butters and eggs. This will be important for keeping you full for longer and curbing those sugar cravings.
  2. Vitamins and minerals to keep your hair, nails and skin at optimal health. Veggies like leafy greens are brimming with vitamin K and iron, and you’ll find these feature in a lot of our meal plans.
  3. Protein is essential for building and repairing muscle and we’ve come prepared with eggs, legumes and both meat and plant-based protein sources used in our program.
  4. Vegetarian? Paleo? Gluten-free? Dairy-free? You’d be well chuffed to know our meal plans are designed with flexibility in mind! You’ll have access to an Allergy Substitution Guide as well as helpful ingredient swapping advice.

Our program would not be complete without sharing some of our best tips and techniques for safe, useful exercises that can be easily applied to any lifestyle, no matter your fitness level. With Pilates instructors featured on our team of experts, you’re in good hands. They’ll be showing you some gentle exercises that can be tailored to your needs, which will also further the benefits that come with quitting sugar.

We know that research shows pairing a healthy diet with moderate exercise leads to even greater health improvements and weight-loss results than diet alone – and we haven’t even gotten into the benefits to mental health. Just 5 minutes of exercise can boost our mood, according to the American Psychological Association, that’s why we’re including these handy workouts in our program to ensure you succeed not just in the program, but in the long run too.

Anthea Counsel is a Melbourne-based Pilates instructor and she happens to be one of the 8-Week Program experts who will be guiding you through some simple, effective exercises. As a long-term chronic pain sufferer, she understands the differing abilities and fitness levels people have.

“As a fibromyalgia warrior, I believe movement is the best medicine for our bodies,” she says “Keeping strong is my key to maintaining a happy and healthy body.”

We couldn’t agree more, and that’s why we take on this wholistic approach to health – it’s not just about what we put on our plates, but what we do with that energy.

Meal prepping.

We’re big fans of meal prepping here at I Quit Sugar, and that’s why we’ll be sharing all the best techniques to save money, time and energy on cooking. Our members go from having no extra time in their day to suddenly being able to include those enjoyable activities like getting in some family time, working on hobbies or even taking a walk around the block into their busy day.


You’ll have access to countless nutritious, sugar-free recipes from satisfying breakfasts to old favourites like cookies, cakes and pancakes. Our recipes pack in all the taste and nutrition you want in a meal, without the sugar crash that comes with so many of those pre-packaged foods on the supermarket shelves – even the ones labelled as health foods.

We’ll show you how to make crowd-pleasing, gut-healing food with real, wholesome ingredients that lack only in sugar, not taste.

What previous 8-Week Program members have to say.

Have a look at some of the testimonials from the many people who quit sugar with us – from weight-loss to improved mental health, there is so much to gain.


Sally: I did the 8-Week Program back in 2015 after suffering with a fractured spine, compressed sciatic nerve roots, torn tendons and chronic nerve damage. I not only felt better within myself, but I had next to no pain. I the conceived my youngest first try, where as it took me 6 months with my eldest. 

Eola: The 8-Week Program works wonders - I used it and kicked bad sugar habits. I now enjoy cycling, being outdoors and enjoying the great lanes of the countryside. 


   Janice: 6 years ago someone recommended me the 8WP book and it changed my health (body and mind) forever! I borrowed the first book when I was living in Austria and absolutely LOVED it. It was the first time I could actually get rid of the food anxiety I used to have. I loved the way every step of the journey was well explained and the recipes helped me to eat healthier. When I fall again on my food anxiety, I just start the 8WP again. It helps me to cope with my anxiety disorder, my skin problems and restore the balance in my body. Many friends did the program, so did my husband, I would recommend it to every single one!
