"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
About the Author
After years of fat-fearing, point-counting, undereating, and over-exercising to lose weight, Diane felt awful. But everything began to change when she learned that eating more balanced meals that focus on adequate protein, plenty of fat, and lots of veggies could help her feel better. Her own journey, years of holistic nutritional studies, and half a decade working with clients led her to develop The 21-Day Sugar Detox as a way to help others jump-start the process of kicking sugar and carb cravings and get off the blood sugar roller-coaster. Thousands of people have successfully completed the program, and Diane looks forward to guiding the readers of her book through the process of liberating themselves from the chains of sugar.

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!Read more ›
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.Read more ›
That being said, I can't recommend this approach. I did the detox, but it was incredibly tough. Before anyone jumps all over me for "not actually doing the detox," I'll say that I'm not an athlete so I stuck with the strict level 2 guidelines - I allowed some dairy, but the diet was very low carb over that three week period. Yes, I had my daily apple and yes, I ate plenty of greens, but ALL women, athletes or no, should probably be eating at the athlete modification level in terms of carbs. We need at least 100-150 g/day to help regulate our hormones. I found myself not craving sweets on this program, but my craving for potatoes was so strong that I was practically in tears because of it. My husband urged me countless times to just break my diet, but I insisted on sticking with the program because I wanted to be able to say I did it successfully (which I did).
I lost weight and I liked the fact that I lost weight. I did not experience the energy boost that many claim to experience. Basically, this diet did nothing for me other than give me some issues with food. I now have hormone imbalances that I am working to correct, and I have regained most of what I lost by adding back in lots of carbs that are forbidden on this diet if you're not an athlete. Can I say definitively that this diet caused my hormone imbalances? No, but it certainly did not help and probably did more harm than good in my case. I even bought the physical copy of the book at one of the book signings hosted when the book was first released.Read more ›
