Victory Belt Publishing | October 29, 2013 | Trade Paperback

The 21-Day Sugar Detox: Bust Sugar & Carb Cravings Naturally is rated 5 out of 5 by 3.
The 21-Day Sugar Detox is a clear-cut, effective, whole-foods-based nutrition action plan that will reset your body and your habits! Tens of thousands of people have already used this groundbreaking guide to shatter the vicious sugar stronghold. Now it''s your turn!
Use the easy-to-follow meal plans and more than 90 simple recipes in this book to bust a lifetime of sugar and carb cravings in just three weeks. Three levels of the program make it approachable for anyone, whether you''re starting from scratch or from a gluten-free, grain-free, and/or Paleo/primal lifestyle.
The 21-Day Sugar Detox even includes special modifications for athletes (endurance, CrossFit, HIIT-style, and beyond), pregnant/nursing moms, pescetarians, and people with autoimmune conditions.
What you''ll experience on this program will be different from a lot of other "diet" programs out there that promote extremely restricted eating; encourage you to consume only shakes, juices, or smoothies; or rely heavily on supplements and very-low-calorie or very-low-fat diets to ensure success. The goal of any detox program should be to support your body in naturally cleansing itself of substances that create negative health effects—and that''s exactly what The 21-Day Sugar Detox does.
By focusing on quality protein, healthy fats, and good carbs, this program will help you change not only the foods you eat, but also your habits around food, and even the way your palate reacts to sweet foods. You''ll likely complete the program and continue eating this way much of the time thereafter because you''ll feel so amazing. After changing your everyday eating habits, you will begin to gain a new understanding of how food works in your body—and just how much nutrition affects your entire life. There''s no reason to wait!

SUGAR IS TAKING OVER OUR LIVES.
But why? And is it only those sweet, refined white crystals that are causing us problems, or could there be more to the story?
Let''s be honest: The problem isn''t just sugar itself. It''s the refined, nutrient-poor carbohydrates that carry tons of calories, but no real nutrition. In our world, these are the easiest foods to grab on the go, but they leave us fat, sick, tired, and downright unhappy.
The effect that sugar, "hidden" carbs, and refined, processed foods have on our bodies goes far beyond our waistlines. We can''t focus, we can''t sleep, we have irrational mid-afternoon cravings, and we can''t even make it through the day without wanting—or needing—to prop up our energy levels with caffeine or even more sugar! What can we do to break free from this cycle? The 21-Day Sugar Detox is here to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally! Finally, western medicine is catching up to what alternative medicine has been saying.  The research that Dr.Hyman provides is so valuable for our health.  The meals are tasty and he offers various ways to connect for support.  I followed the detox (although I cheated in the mornings - coffee w/maple syrup & a bit of milk ) for 8 days and lost 5 pounds.  I will be more diligent after my holidays.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I'd read it years ago! Dr. Mark Hyman explains not only what foods to avoid but why. With studies and scientific research he explains the additives in our food in a simple, easy to understand manner. His approach is simple. Don't treat the symptom, treat the whole body. If something doesn't feel right or normal, figure out what the body is lacking (or had too much of) and restore balance through proper nutrition and exercise, as well as getting enough sleep and being aware of your mental and emotional state. I have severe allergies (nuts) and sensitivities so I wasn't able to follow his plan 100% but I did probably 85% and I lost 10 lbs in 10 days (I have maybe 50 to lose). But it's more than that. For just 10 days, no alcohol, coffee, sugar, smoking, white processed food, junk food etc. For me, sugar - chocolate - was the big one but I didn't have any headaches or sugar crashes. I felt good the entire time. Eat low carb veggies, lean meats, lots of water...real food to nourish your body for 10 days. Then have a detox bath (epson salts, baking soda, lavender essential oil (and I added grapeseed oil). I slept soundly for 8 hours something I haven't done in years. I have had chronic sinus for over 20 years, by day 3 I could fully breathe. My sugar and blood pressure drastically decreased as it the symptoms of diabetes and pcos. Even my hormones regulated. I didn't tell my colleagues and by day 10, one said my skin was simply radiant. And I went down a pant size and bra size. The only down side of the book was that I thought the recipes could have been better so I just ate baked broccoli with garlic and ginger, roasted cabbage, salad, grilled meat etc. I highly recommend this book for anyone wanting to lose weight, sleep better, reduce their allergies, get rid of the bloating/tired feeling etc. It makes you aware of how much packaged food we consume. Get back to the basics. If you can pick it, pluck it, pull it or milk it, then it's real food. We all know what to eat and what not to eat but this book will give you the jump start that you need by telling you the truth about what we are putting into our precious bodies and feeding our kids. I would have bought it just for the information. However, there was no better feeling than going to work in my skinny jeans that I haven't seen for 15 years and being told I looked radiant. I will never go back to all that processed food and feeling horrible. I had forgotten what feeling energetic, rested and alive felt like. This one is a keeper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy but delicious recipes I bought this book because I was so impressed with the results of my first 21 day sugar detox that I wanted to incorporate it into my lifestyle. I was blown away by the recipes in this book as every single one was really indulgent yet very nourishing. I have received numerous compliments from my family, roommates, and my boyfriend for every recipe I made out of this book. If you're looking to get ridiculously healthy and maximizing flavour in your food, go out and buy this book.

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.

Editorial Reviews

"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
