21 Day Sugar Detox

3 weeks without sugar. Really? This close to Christmas. Really? Yup.

I have always had a sweet tooth. Dinner in our house as a kid always ended with dessert usually consisting of fruit with ice cream or pie. These habits have stuck with me through the years and we are now going along the same path with my family. Sure, now we make a healthier version by using whole fruit, coconut flour, and skip the whipped crem, but the amount of sugar is still pretty high.

Then take into account the ‘cheating’. Ever since Halloween, the treats which my daughter worked so hard to collect have been consumed mostly by me. Hey, one here and one there is not an issue right? Well not soo much.

So I decided that the best way to get rid of the sweets in my life was to enlist the help of a pretty successful detox over the past 6 months, The 21 Day Sugar Detox. Having been Paleo for the better part of 2012 this seems to be a perfect fit as the author, Diane Sanfilippo, is also a Paleo advocate.

This is the detox in a nut shell. Select a level that is appropriate for you based on your current lifestyle, eliminate all grains, fruit, processed foods, sugar, and legumes (level 3 only) from your diet, and have at it.

This is my call. Starting on December 3 and ending on Christmas Eve, if you want, join me. It is always better to have a group of people work through this than alone.

The 21-Day Sugar Detox

I will dedicate a weekly post detailing my progression. So check back and see how the 21 days goes.

Question: Have you already completed this or a similar detox? How did it go?
