“Bust sugar and carb cravings naturally.” This is what you are supposed to accomplish with the 21 Day Sugar Detox program.. It’s why I decided to finally take the plunge 3 weeks ago.
Except, I kinda… eh hem… failed.
That’s behind me. I love to fail. You should too. Learn from your failures.
Today, I begin again. I technically began yesterday after I enjoyed a Blueberry Banana Sangria Smoothie. I just want to complete a full 21 days so I’ll say that I am beginning today.
Are you ready to bust your sugar cravings? Join me. Please.
The Slight Modification
Diane Sanfillippo, the creator of this program, suggests avoiding white and sweet potatoes and all fruit except for one green-tipped banana or granny smith apple per day.
I’m going to allow myself more potatoes and fruit.
Grand Rapids, MI is my home right now. In less than three weeks my home will be Olympia, WA. I’ve lived in GR my entire life. Moving across the country is… uh… kinda crazy. I don’t know for sure but I imagine it’s going to be extremely different.
Why add unnecessary stress?
I still want to “detox” myself from sugar. No chocolate. No wine. No added sugar. I’ll limit my consumption of potatoes and fruit but I won’t deviate away from them completely. I’ll focus on eating more carbs after an intense workout but I won’t shy away from a small potato at dinner after not much activity.
This is my personal choice.
It’s June. Strawberries are in season. Local strawberries are 5,539,485 times better than non local strawberries. You can bet I’m going to have some as a snack. Because I’m doing the sugar detox I’ll savor each and every bite a million times over. I just refuse to avoid the strawberry 100%.
Maybe you will follow the program exactly how it’s laid out. Or perhaps you need to make a slight modification yourself. We all need to make choices like these ourself. We know ourselves better than anyone else!
I’m moving across the country. Strawberries are in season. These are far from lame excuses in my mind.
Write down everything you eat in a notebook
If you want to go through this detox without messing up or if you want to learn from your mistakes (if you happen to make any) then I recommend you write down everything you eat in a notebook.
There is no need to weigh or measure anything. I enjoyed a salad yesterday and just wrote down all the ingredients that were in it. This included romaine, bell pepper, tomato, shredded coconut, kerrygold cheese, chicken, olive oil and apple cider vinegar. No measurements necessary.
Are you a member of pinterest? I just created a 21 Day Sugar Detox board. I’ll take photos of most of my meals and upload them to this board. This way you can gain inspiration to how simple it is to follow this program.
If you are on pinterest then consider making a board like mine too.
