Westin Hotels & Resorts has appointed author and sugar-free lifestyle advocate, Sarah Wilson as the newest Asia Pacific Westin well-being brand ambassador.

Wilson, the author of ‘I Quit Sugar’ and ‘I Quit Sugar For Life’, went down the sugar-free path almost four years ago after she was diagnosed with autoimmune disease – a breakdown in the immune system that sees the body fight off good cells.

Speaking at The Westin Sydney earlier this month she told media she tried everything to fix the issue, but only saw results after taking sugar completely out of her diet. This included cutting out chocolate, lollies, soft drinks and even meals that have even the slightest bit of sugar.

She said she now has a passion for encouraging other people to stay active and foster wellness regardless of their location.

Which is where her new role comes in.

As well-being brand ambassador, Wilson has created a Westin guide to Discovering Well-Being in Travel.

The guide is available for download via The Westin Sydney and The Westin Melbourne websites. It includes Wilson’s healthy eating and workout tips that can be put into place whether at home or while travelling.

“I know travelling can take its toll on people, so I’m delighted to be able to share my research with Westin guests.”

The new partnership is part of Westin’s US$15 million well-being movement, which launched earlier this year.

The brand-wide campaign for a healthier travelling lifestyle was designed to enhance the well-being of the group’s guests.

So far, the year-long initiative has seen the launch of healthy SuperFoodsRx™ menus – new delicious and nutrient-rich offerings.
