Why a Sugar Detox?
From Halloween to the end of the year, I find my nutritional standards get compromised. Temptation is everywhere I turn, and I often find myself indulging. Then, the more I indulge, the more I crave. I’ve come to the point where every time I finish a meal, I crave something sweet. The craving is so strong, I always give in.
Can anyone relate?
Completing a 30 day sugar detox is my way of resetting my nutritional goals. I know that when I eat healthy, I sleep better, have more energy, and am better able to handle stress.
My goals for the sugar detox are simple: to cut sugar cravings, eliminate refined foods from my diet, and give myself a nutritional jump-start.
Why I’m following the 21-Day Sugar Detox (but extending to 30 days)
I decided to follow the 21-Day Sugar Detox simply because I have never done a sugar detox. I researched various books before I decided to commit to the 21-Day Sugar Detox . Here’s what I like about the program:
- There are a lot of resources available for free here and here including shopping lists and recipes.
- If you want to join me, the book is available on Amazon.
- The program has 3 levels. I personally will be following Level 1 because it is the least restrictive. I was happy to find I could still include some grains on this detox when following Level 1.
- The program emphasizes whole, real foods. It encourages organic produce and grass-fed beef, just like I do.
