Book Description

"The 21-Day Sugar Detox" is a clear-cut, effective, whole-foods-based nutrition action plan that will reset your body and your habits! Tens of thousands of people have already used this groundbreaking guide to shatter the vicious sugar stronghold. Now it's your turn!

Use the easy-to-follow meal plans and more than 90 simple recipes in this book to bust a lifetime of sugar and carb cravings in just three weeks. Three levels of the program make it approachable for anyone, whether you're starting from scratch or from a gluten-free, grain-free, and/or Paleo/primal lifestyle.

"The 21-Day Sugar Detox" even includes special modifications for athletes (endurance, CrossFit, HIIT-style, and beyond), pregnant/nursing moms, pescetarians, and people with autoimmune conditions.

What you'll experience on this program will be different from a lot of other "diet" programs out there that promote extremely restricted eating; encourage you to consume only shakes, juices, or smoothies; or rely heavily on supplements and very-low-calorie or very-low-fat diets to ensure success. The goal of any detox program should be to support your body in naturally cleansing itself of substances that create negative health effects--and that's exactly what The 21-Day Sugar Detox does.

By focusing on quality protein, healthy fats, and good carbs, this program will help you change not only the foods you eat, but also your habits around food, and even the way your palate reacts to sweet foods. You'll likely complete the program and continue eating this way much of the time thereafter because you'll feel so amazing. After changing your everyday eating habits, you will begin to gain a new understanding of how food works in your body--and just how much nutrition affects your entire life. There's no reason to wait!

Sugar is taking over our lives.

But why? And is it only those sweet, refined white crystals that are causing us problems, or could there be more to the story?

Let's be honest: The problem isn't just sugar itself. It's the refined, nutrient-poor carbohydrates that carry tons of calories, but no real nutrition. In our world, these are the easiest foods to grab on the go, but they leave us fat, sick, tired, and downright unhappy.

The effect that sugar, "hidden" carbs, and refined, processed foods have on our bodies goes far beyond our waistlines. We can't focus, we can't sleep, we have irrational mid-afternoon cravings, and we can't even make it through the day without wanting--or needing--to prop up our energy levels with caffeine or even more sugar! What can we do to break free from this cycle? "The 21-Day Sugar Detox" is here to help.


Editorial Reviews

Review

"My eating habits had gotten out of control—I was binge-eating late at night because I had spent the day eating as little as possible. The 21DSD made me realize that you don't have to be hungry to see results!"—Alex T., New Zealand

"After reading rave reviews, I gave [The 21DSD] a try, and I loved it! After about a week, my cravings for sugar were nil, I was no longer waking up at 4am starving, and I had a lot more energy—no more dragging myself through the day with huge amounts of coffee!"—Sasha B., Washington

"I am so thankful for the information and support this program provided me. It literally changed my relationship with sweets and helped me regain my health."—Keri B., Missouri

"The 21-Day Sugar Detox was very difficult for me, but I was losing weight for the first time in years! And now I know exactly what foods I must avoid in order to continue dropping the pounds. I'm so glad I gave it a try!"—Laurie K., Utah

"Ever try to abandon sugar and carbohydrates cold turkey? Then you know that it just doesn't work—the cravings always come back. But in The 21-Day Sugar Detox: Bust Sugar & Carb Cravings Naturally, author Diane Sanfilippo offers an easy-to-follow meal plan that'll wean you off unhealthy sweets…" —Women's Health Magazine

"I'm a faithful fan of Diane Sanfilippo and her 21 Day Sugar Detox. I really truly believe it was instrumental in jump starting my path to healthy living. I do not believe I could have successfully lost nearly 90 pounds without first squashing my sugar cravings. I am very happy to have been given the chance to pour over the new 21 Day Sugar Detox BOOK before it was even available in stores and to tell you what I think." —author of popular website ohrheally

"Diane has crafted a dynamic diet detox book that can help you kick the sugar habit in less than a month: The 21-Day Sugar Detox: Bust Sugar & Carb Cravings Naturally…But you don't have to be a Paleo fan to benefit from her new book. All you need to have is a desire and willingness to improve your health by improving your diet." —Joanne Eglash, The Examiner

"The book is laid out in an easy-to-read, aesthetically-pleasing way. Diane doesn't SHAME you for eating sugar, no way! She even shares her own personal history with sugar! Then she explains what sugar does in your body and why it can be helpful to pay attention to your intake. There is SO much structure if that's what you like, and SO much flexibility if that's your game! You can either follow a meal plan or just follow the Yes/No Food List. Or a bit of both!" —Sassy Celiac

Hello! I am a 23 year old female, and I am a very active person. I play soccer and go to Crossfit at least 4 times a week. I started Crossfit in September 2013 and learned about the paleo lifestyle. I received Diane's book, Practical Paleo, from a friend and have been experimenting with it since September 2013. In February 2014, my Crossfit gym was having a paleo challenge that I wanted to be a part of. I wanted to further my understanding of a paleo lifestyle so I attended a Balanced Bites Seminar this past January in Philadelphia. Here I purchased Diane's 21 Day Sugar Detox book. A rule in my gym's challenge was to avoid sugar. I decided to do the 21 DSD in conjunction with the challenge at my gym.

Prior to the 21 DSD, I had an unhealthy relationship with sugar. I would go a few days eating paleo and then would binge eat sweets. Binge eating sweets has been a problem for me for a really long time. My sweet tooth was so strong. I would crave very specific desserts. Just a bite, a slice, or a piece of a dessert would not satisfy me. Eating one Oreo or one chocolate chip cookie didn't cut it. I'd down like 6 cookies before I felt like I satisfied my craving. I could consume a pint of ice cream in no time. Chocolate....my ultimate weakness. I craved chocolate every. single. day. Every evening I'd say, "Now it's time to end the day with some chocolate." I'd eat candy or snacks just because they were in front of me. I wouldn't think twice about it. My brain would strongly crave these sweets even if my body wasn't actually hungry. I knew that I wanted to build muscle and lose body fat. And I knew that I would not achieve this goal if I kept giving in to my sweet tooth. This book came to me at the perfect time!

5.0 out of 5 stars How to kick sugar without losing your mind November 7, 2013
Format:Paperback
This detox isn't the same as you might expect. It's not a juice cleanse or something like that. The reality is that's not going to help. As Diane states in the book, "to detox your body from sugar means not only to rid your body of cravings for it, but also to rid your daily life of the structure built around being a slave to when you eat sugar, how much you eat, and the form in which you eat it."

The way she presents the detox is in one of three programs, depending on how your current sugar lifestyle is. Level 1 is for folks who are just coming off of a "standard American diet", which not only includes junk food but also large amounts of whole grains (i.e., the "healthy" grains) and dairy. Level 3 is for folks who already eat pretty clean, maybe someone who considers herself "mostly Paleo" and wants to finally kick the habit. Level 2 is somewhere in between.

One of the things I appreciate most about this book is how it's not simply one that tells you why sugar is bad and then gives you tips on how to deal with the withdrawal of not eating it.

It definitely does those things, but it also almost holds your hand (as much as a book can), as you do it. There are even checklists for 7 days before you start, 5 days before you start, all the way to the day before. They're designed to help get you excited for it, prepare the way, and get emotionally ready.

Then as you go, you can follow her meal plan for you, which tells you exactly which foods are appropriate to eat for your level, or you can plan your own menus based on her "yes" and "no" food lists.

In addition to the already-useful help and meal plans offered in the book, there are also a bunch of recipes (90, to be more precise) for foods that foster a healthy lifestyle.

In late 2010 I stumbled upon a clean eating program called The 21-Day Sugar Detox that was in e-book form at the time... I had already been eating mostly clean for about 6 months, but this looked like just the program I needed to jump-start myself into the new year. I completed my first round in January 2011 and since then have done it 3 more times.. and WOW. Now there is this FANTASTIC book!

Not being much of an e-book fan to begin with, I am so glad Diane decided to put this in hard-copy format and ADD a ton of stuff not even in the e-book! 225 pages (not counting the VISUAL index, regular index or sources!) of well-written information about sugar and carbs, how they work in our body, what they can potentially do to us, how stress plays into it all and affects our hormones (which can help us NOT reach our goals!)... plus recipes, recipes, RECIPES! Diane has a way with making the most simple recipes taste outright amazing. Asian-style meatballs, Lamb & Chorizo Chili, Shepherd's Pie, ginger-garlic chicken, smoothies, even an apple crumble and doughnuts!

I know what you're thinking.. how is this a "detox" - this sounds like such good food! Yes, Mr/Mrs Reader... it is. You will not feel deprived and once your body gets over the initial sugar cravings you'll experience what I have: better sleep, clearer skin (hello adult acne!), no afternoon energy slump, less bloating or pressure in the gut, no "hangries". Plus, you will have gained a new-found appreciation for how food can cure almost anything - the RIGHT food.

Besides good content, the layout and design of the book is very easy on the eyes.
