If you haven’t picked up your copy yet, click here for my How-To guide on reducing overall sugars/sweets in your diet, retraining your taste buds to become more sensitive to sweet tasting things, and honestly just feeling BETTER on a daily basis. Thousands of people have participated in either my community-wide sugar detoxes and I’ve both seen and heard of pretty amazing transformations. The best one to hear, in my opinion, is when people say that they had no idea how much sugar was in the foods they eat every single day, which led them to finally start paying attention to how they’re fueling their bodies.

This added sugar detox is a game changer and something I recommend to anyone who’s looking to up their daily energy, get rid of common bloat, and/or make the transition to live a more healthy lifestyle. You’ll notice that this program is not about deprivation of your favorite foods. It’s about learning how to avoid unnecessary added sugars we’ve become so addicted to tasting in our favorite foods. It’s also about learning how to read ingredient labels and looking at nutrients in terms of FUEL for your body. Natural sugars like the ones found in fruits and vegetables are packed with vitamins and minerals our bodies need, so we don’t cut them out for the seven days–we just limit fruit to 2-3 servings per day in order to not overdo it. Once you complete just seven days of this program (even 3-4 days does the trick!), I promise you’ll feel a difference and want to challenge yourself to another week without added sugar down the line. I’ve complete around two dozen at this point and it’s completely changed my life and eating habits!

All the recipes are gluten-free and dairy-free as well and more paleo-ish, similar to how I eat on a daily basis. I also get questions if these recipes are vegan/vegetarian-friendly and you can definitely find ways to substitute with your favorite protein in the book.

For those who do have the ebook, I thought it could be helpful to have a sample meal plan for the week utilizing the 22 yummy recipes found in the book! I love following a list or a schedule and find this helpful even for myself. Of course, you can always switch it up! Let me know what your favorite recipes are in the comments πŸ™‚ xx

  1. Hi, quick question! I normally do not eat breakfast as part of my daily routine. Do you think breakfast is important on this detox or should I follow my normal meal routine and just replace the meals with the recipes in the book?

    Thanks!

  2. I have a quick question! I am going to do the added sugar detox and want to make sure I follow all guidelines! I have been struggling to find a chocolate with no added sugar to make the freezer fudge recipe. Is there a brand you recommend? Thank you in advance for your help!

    1. I personally love Evolved Chocolate brand πŸ™‚ But anything that’s 100% dark chocolate works! xxx
