21DSD T-6 Sugar, it’s not me, it’s you.

As 2014 winds down, I am reflecting on my intentions for 2015. I’ve declared that I’m done struggling with food cravings. After all my holiday treats, I feel a little gross. Starting 5 January, I am leading a 21-day Sugar Detox with a group of friends who want to kick sugar cravings to the curb. Easily. With kindness. With nourishment. This week is “Prep Week.” I’m looking at recipes and planning my “re-entry” from the holidays. I want to make this as easy as possible. And preparation leads to success.

If you’re not entirely sure whether you need a sugar detox, take a moment to answer the following questions from Diane Sanfilippo’s book, The 21-Day Sugar Detox:

  1. Do you crave sugar all day, every day—or even a few times a week? I’m talking about candy, sweets, chocolate, or lots of fruit.
  2. Do you crave carbohydrates? These include bread, rice, pasta, pastries, cereal (yes, even oatmeal!), sandwiches, wraps, and breakfast bars.
  3. Do you include something sweet with every meal or snack?
  4. Do you experience spikes and dips in your energy levels throughout the day?
  5. Do you often feel tired upon waking in the morning?
  6. Do you drink alcoholic beverages daily or multiple times per week?
  7. Are you trying to burn body fat?
  8. Are you following a low-fat, whole-grain-rich diet that just isn’t working?
  9. Does the way you eat leave you feeling unsatisfied, hungry, and grazing on snacks every 2 to 3 hours?
  10. Do you crave carbs or sugar even though you follow a clean-eating type of lifestyle (including Paleo, primal, low-carb, vegetarian, Weston Price, or “real food”)?

If you’ve answered yes to more than one or two of these questions, you’re a good candidate for this three-week program. Join me and harness the power of the group.
