The exciting upcoming round of the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program beckons you to join a global community of health enthusiasts who've embraced a transformative journey – but how does it all come together? We’ll be sharing our top secrets around how we create our programs and why they work.

For the upcoming cycle, members will continue to enjoy the flexibility of choosing between two Meal Plans—the Omni 8-Week Program Meal Plan and the Vegetarian Meal Plan. Plus, a convenient approach allows you to choose from summer and winter plans, allowing you to align your choices with the seasonal nuances of your region. This means you’ll be able to make use of seasonal produce to lower your costs and boost flavour and freshness.

A recurrent question revolves around whether these Meal Plans align with current dietary guidelines. The unequivocal answer is yes, and in unveiling the intricacies of the program, here's how the recipes, meals, and plans are meticulously devised:

Prioritising Dense Nutrition

  • The emphasis is on infusing each meal with foods boasting the densest nutrition.
  • Strategies involve incorporating ample leafy greens, high-quality fats, and proteins in every meal.
  • Techniques such as food preparation to preserve enzymes and bacteria for digestion are employed.
  • Attention is given to minimizing toxins from harmful grains and legumes, as well as empty calories from sugars and processed carbs.

Adding Healthy Fats


  • Healthy fats take centre stage as a sugar replacement, satiating hunger and providing enjoyable, fuel-packed foods.
  • Fat plays a crucial role in triggering the brain's "I'm full" switch, aiding in portion control.
  • Fats are essential for the absorption of vitamins A, E, D, and K from vegetables.

Focusing on Veggies 

  • All vegetables are valued, with an emphasis on leafy greens as the most nutritious option.
  • Meals prioritise vegetables over starchy options, with a goal of 6-7 servings daily.
  • We make veggies delicious with a range of cooking methods, from roasting to pan frying.


  • Found abundantly in ingredients like garlic, onions, asparagus, and leeks—common elements in our diverse array of recipes—prebiotics serve as nourishment for the beneficial bacteria residing in your gut.
  • By prioritising these fibrous components, our program encourages the growth and flourishing of a healthy gut microbiome.


  • Fermented products, a staple in our meal plans, introduce probiotics to the mix.
  • Whether it's sauerkraut accompanying a savory curry or yogurt dressing enhancing the flavours of a haloumi salad, these fermented delights infuse your gut with live beneficial bacteria.
  • The enzymes in these foods assist in the assimilation of nutrition, reducing the body's reliance on its own enzymes.
  • Probiotics play a vital role in maintaining a balanced gut microbiota, contributing to improved digestion and overall wellbeing.


  • The ingenious combination of diverse ingredients in recipes like portobello burgers and satay chicken fosters the production of postbiotics.
  • Postbiotics are the metabolites generated by probiotics during fermentation, showcasing anti-inflammatory and immune-modulating properties.
  • The varied selection of meals in the program ensures you receive the benefits of these postbiotics, promoting a harmonious balance in your gut ecosystem.

Exceeding Nutritional Guidelines

  • The Meal Plans surpass nutritional guidelines by up to 500% for crucial micro-nutrients.
  • Plans are low in calories, though participants often find they consume more than usual, attesting to the satisfying nature of the program.
  • Dieticians, naturopaths and nutritionists collaborate to ensure optimal nutrition.

Crowding Out

  • The concept of "crowding out" involves filling up on nutritious foods to leave little room for less healthy choices.
  • Participants frequently remark on the abundance of wholesome food, effectively reducing cravings for unhealthy options. 

In essence, the Meal Plans not only align with dietary guidelines but reflect a personalised approach rooted in Sarah Wilson's own eating philosophy. The focus is on sharing a practical, achievable journey to quit sugar, emphasising wholesome, comforting, and enjoyable foods.
