From the New York Times bestselling author of I Quit Sugar and First, We Make the Beast Beautiful comes this proven 2-week plan for reducing anxiety and beating one of its leading causes—sugar addiction—using 8 simple, sustainable dietary shifts.

Eating more than 6 teaspoons of sugar a day? No wonder you’re anxious. Anxiety has a lot do to with lifestyle choices, including what you put in your mouth.

Sarah Wilson is an expert on sugar addiction and its connection to the most widespread mental health concern—chronic anxiety—affecting millions worldwide today. One in six people in the West alone suffer from an anxiety-related illness.While scientists know that anxiety is a chemical imbalance in the brain, recent studies have linked this condition to sugar consumption and inflammation in the gut. 

In The Anti-Anxiety Diet, Wilson unravels the cutting-edge science linking sugar addiction, inflammation, and gut health to mental health. “If you have fire in the gut,” Sarah advises, “you have fire in the brain.” And sugar is the primary culprit.

The Anti-Anxiety Diet is her simple, 2-week jumpstart plan for eliminating sugar from your diet. Packed with delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes, 4-color photos, and detailed meal plans, it shows you how to replace the bad stuff (sugar) with the good stuff (whole, unprocessed foods), to soothe—and ultimately tame—the anxious beast.

"Probably the best book on living with anxiety that I’ve ever read.” – Mark Manson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck

The Chinese believe that before you can conquer a beast, you must first make it beautiful.

Sarah Wilson first came across this Chinese proverb in psychiatrist Kay Redfield Jamison's memoir An Unquiet Mind, and it became the key to understanding her own lifelong struggle with anxiety. Wilson, bestselling author, journalist, and entrepreneur has helped over 1.5 million people worldwide to live better, healthier lives through her I Quit Sugar books and program. And all along, she has been managing chronic anxiety.

In First, We Make the Beast Beautiful, Wilson directs her intense focus and fierce investigating skills onto her lifetime companion, looking at the triggers and treatments, the fashions and fads. She reads widely and interviews fellow sufferers, mental health experts, philosophers, and even the Dalai Lama, processing all she learns through the prism of her own experiences.

Wilson offers readers comfort, humor, companionship, and practical tips for living with the Beast:

Cultivate a "gratitude ritual." You can't be grateful and anxious at the same time.Eat to curb anxiety. Real food is your best friend.Just breathe. Embrace the healing power of meditation.Make your bed. Every day. Simple outer order creates inner calm.Study fellow fretters to know thyself. Emily Dickinson, Charles Darwin, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. all struggled with anxiety.Actively practice missing out. Forget FOMO, curl up on the couch, and order takeout.

Practical and poetic, wise and funny, First, We Make the Beast Beautiful is a small book with a big heart. It will encourage the myriad souls who dance with this condition to embrace it as a part of who they are, and to explore the possibilities it offers for a richer, fuller life.
