What to Eat on The 21-Day Sugar Detox

With 3 levels and several modifications to chose from, the 21-Day Sugar Detox has a path for everyone wanting to bust their sugar and carb cravings naturally.  From pescatarians, athletes, weekend warriors, families, breastfeeding or pregnant moms, to having an autoimmune disease, we've got you covered!

"The 21-Day Sugar Detox (21DSD) is a real food-based program designed to reduce and/or eliminate your cravings for sugar and carbohydrates.  Through this three-week program, which focuses on quality protein, healthy fats, and good carbs, you'll change not only the foods you eat, but also your habits around food, and even the way your palate reacts to different foods.  Removing added sugars and very sweet foods retrains your taste buds to perceive sweetness, and you'll find that foods you once thought weren't sweet at all become quite sweet as the days pass.

The 21DSD is not a no-carb or even a very low carb eating plan. You will eat plenty of carbohydrates, including unlimited amounts of crunchy and leafy vegetables, as well as limited fruits and even some slightly starchier vegetables like beets and pumpkin. You'll just be eating good carbs-not the bad kinds that drain your energy and make losing body fat an uphill battle." - Diane Sanfilippo, creator of the 21DSD.
