Why Do You Need a Sugar Detox?

Our 21 Day Sugar Detox is fast approaching and I often get the question, “Why do I need to sugar detox?”.  Well, for me, having done the 21 Day Sugar Detox 3 times, I have many reasons that one can benefit from this detox.

The MAIN REASON for doing a Sugar Detox is to balance out and regulate your body….meaning balancing out your blood sugar levels.  How would you know if you have an imbalance??? ………..

1. If you have cravings for sweats, sugars, or bread products.  **This is pretty much a guaranteed sign that your blood sugar levels are out of whack.

2.  Are you feeling tired or easily exhausted….especially after eating a meal?

3.  Do you become light headed when you skip a meal?

4. Do you depend on coffee or other stimulants to get you going in the morning? Or keep you going during the day?

5. Do you struggle at losing weight or keeping weight off?

6. Are you moody?

7. Do you struggle with some of your hormonal imbalances?

These are a few signs that you may be a great candidate for the 21 Day Sugar Detox Program.  I know for me, more than half of these questions I could relate to.  But after doing this program, I am not struggling with any of these symptoms any more!!! YAE~!!!

The program is very simple.  You remove all sugar and simple carbs from your diet for 21 days and you eat only from the ALLOWED list of food provided.  There will be an AVOID LIST to follow, as well.  IT’S THAT SIMPLE!!!

But I must warn you the first week (usually 3-5 days) are the hardest because your cravings will be more pronounced.  But once you get past “the hump” the cravings will subside and the program begins to really work…and it becomes easier and easier every day.  Those days leading up to the hump day will take absolute will power.  Believe me, you can do this! I have done it and it is completely doable (and worth it).  After getting though the actual detox, you will begin to notice a lot of the positive side effects that I am going to list below (example: better focus, better sleep, weight lose, etc), which makes this program exciting to be on because you see immediate results.  Check out the list below I am providing of the positives you may notice during and after the detox.

Most Commonly Reported positive Effects DURING and AFTER The Detox:

Fat loss
Less bloating
Clearer skin
Less craving for sugar / food
Increased sense of taste (healthy food starts tasting better)
Increased energy
More consistent energy
More regular bowel movements
Increased sense of wellbeing
Elevated mood/less depression
Lower cholesterol
Better sleep

You need to give this a try.  It will truly provide you will great results and education that you can use everyday to live a better and healthier life!

Custom Sugar Detox


REMEMBER Before Sugarless

I have completed my 21 day sugar detox and many of you have completed it or will complete it after today! AWESOMENESS!!  I am so proud of each of us! Many of us have learned so much during this process.  Just a few things to look back on in the last 21 days….. (this is mainly pertaining more to the ladies I coached and encouraged—but please read if you are interested in doing a Sugar Detox with me in the near future).


1. REMEMBER that first weekend prior to the detox…..not knowing how to read your labels.  It said 0 Sugar, but why was it illegal? ***It was those fake sugars (aka chemicals and poisons to our body).  Y’all now know how to read those labels and identify if it’s healthy or not.

2. REMEMBER when on the days 3-5 when you got on the scale and it had already moved!!!! Maybe even several pounds!

3. REMEMBER when you first thought you were hungry…but then your realized you were NOT actually hungry, you just had set yourself up for unhealthy snacking or eating habits?

4. REMEMBER when you did your first WOD or BASELINE workout.  It didn’t look or sound bad until you were actually in the middle of doing it and thought you might die? LOL

5. REMEMBER feeling sick or ill from the actual DETOX?

6. REMEMBER being post detox and feeling great!!! You looked healthier.  Your skin looked better.  You were sleeping better.  You were thinking clearer.  You felt amazing and still do!!!!!!

7.  REMEMBER when you were tempted to eat or drink something you knew you shouldn’t have and you denied yourself the treat. REMEMBER how you felt empowered by that!!!

8.  REMEMBER those yummy new dishes we learned to make and actually liked! Even if they looked a little funny…haha

9.  REMEMBER when you cheated and you literally didn’t feel good or as good as you did prior the cheat.  REMEMBER when you thought that that bad food wasn’t actually worth it anymore.

10. REMEMBER our text of encouragement to one of another!

Girls, this list could go on and on.  Look how far you have come in just 21 days of making healthier choices. My challenge is that you begin to live your life with these guidelines in place.  You are educated now and you know what leads to illness, disease, tiredness, overweight, etc….  PREVENT those things and practice what you know.

Try to follow a 80/20 rule….eating clean 80% of the time and 20% of the time you can treat yourself (remember portion control with this 20%).

Please be cautious of any foods you add back in.  Don’t add everything in at once.  Be patient and “test” the eliminated foods out.  You might be surprised that several foods might need to be taken out of your diet all together.

Again, I know this is the end of the 21 Day Sugar Detox but my challenge to you may it be the beginning of healthier lifestyle for you and your family!

The 21 Day Sugar Detox

A year ago I did my first challenge with my CrossFit Box.  It was the 21 Day Sugar Detox and I had amazing results!!! Not only did I have physical results, but I had learned SOOO MUCH during that 21 days.  I discovered my unhealthy habits and unhealthy eating behaviors.  I learned new recipes and how to select the healthiest foods when going out to eat (btw: you can eat healthy when eating out).  And I learned that I was a processed food junkie.

Twenty One Day Sugar

This past January, at my Crossfit box, we did a private 21  Day Sugar Detox Challenge and had huge successes!  **SO MUCH SUCCESS that I have decided to run another 21 Day Sugar Detox myself.  WHY? Because every person that did the detox had great results.  Not only did they lose weight and inches, but they regained control over their foods and eating behaviors…and the majority of the participants have continued this lifestyle. I am one of the participants.  I lost 9.5# this time during that 21days.  And am continuing to lose, weeks later. I have lost over 5inches in my waist and hips alone.

Twenty-one days after the detox, not only was I leaner and looking better, but I felt absolutely amazing. Even my hormones had leveled out and my eating behaviors were completed changed for the better!!

March 18th-April 7th I will personally be running this “challenge again”.  I am encouraging you to do this challenge with me! I will be your personal coach during the 21 days.  I will send daily emails, daily text, and will be your “go to person” for questions.  A private Facebook group will be set up for all participants to share recipes, motivation, and helpful hints. 

***Please grab a few others to do this with us….coworkers, church groups, or family/friends!  The more the merrier! You’ll be amazed at how the accountability of others will help you!!  

If you have already completed the challenge….my challenge is to do it again or even do it again at a stricter level.  There are three different detox levels.
