About the Book


How many teaspoons of sugar do you consume a day? Amanda Tiffen went from 30 teaspoons of sugar per day (unknowingly) to 6 teaspoons of sugar per day and in doing so lost an astonishing 20 KG. After years of dieting and fighting to control her weight, Amanda easily went from a size 16 to a size 8 in 9 months.

A LIFE LESS SUGAR is the inspiring story of how an ordinary and busy working mum used information from a documentary she had seen on TV and turned that information into her reality. She lost 20KG by reducing her sugar consumption, teaspoon by teaspoon, and then wrote a runaway bestseller about how she did it.

Enlisting the help of good friend Leigh Brown who is an amazing cook (something Amanda is not!) to create some low sugar, low carbohydrate delicious dishes. The recipes are easy to follow with nothing complicated.

Part memoir, part diet and recipe book A LIFE LESS SUGAR will help you to reduce the high sugar content in some of the most common foods that Amanda found in her (and maybe your) pantry.

I am not a qualified nutritionist or dietician, I am a fulltime working mum and wife in my 40's.  I live in Christchurch, New Zealand with my husband Robbie and two children.  I am a normal person who discovered something amazing and wrote a book about it to share my journey.  I've struggled with weigh loss and maintaining my weight loss for most of my life.  Finally I have it under control.   Weight for me has always been a big part of my life, always there at functions, family events and life's highs and lows.  I've tried to never let it consume me but weight has always been my shadow lurking in front of me, now that shadow is behind me, still there but out of sight.  Weight will always be a part of my life, but now (for me) its in a positive light, I am a much happier and healthier me. Recipes by Leigh Brown.
