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.

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.
"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
