Not being dramatic when I say this program will change your life...,

This review is from: The 21-Day Sugar Detox: Bust Sugar & Carb Cravings Naturally (Paperback)
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. Everything is easy to find, allergy indications for nuts, eggs, nightshades, FODMAPs and seafood are on each recipe, and there are several handy charts and pages for yes/no foods, eating out, etc.
So if you're on the fence, have tried every "diet" in the book (I have to!) and really just want to set yourself up for a healthy lifestyle and get off the dang diet roller coaster, this book is it. You owe it to yourself to try!
