Editorial Reviews


"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

About the Author

Diane Sanfilippo holds a BS from Syracuse University and is a Certified Nutrition Consultant who specializes in blood sugar regulation and digestive health. She is the "New York Times" best-selling author of "Practical Paleo: A Customized Approach to Health and a Whole-Foods Lifestyle." Diane writes the popular health blog Balanced Bites (, teaches nutrition seminars nationwide, and has a top-rated weekly health podcast, "The Balanced Bites Podcast." 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.

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. 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!

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.

Let me preface this by saying I purchased the 21 Day Sugar Detox when it was just an ebook and completed the program at that time. I've been following Balanced Bites for over 6 months and I got into this program relatively early in my paleo journey.

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.
