21 Day Sugar Detox

Posted on

So I had my fun over the holidays baking paleo treats. Like I said before, my waistline has paid for it. Whether it is a natural form of sugar or manmade, sugar is sugar and reacts the same in your body…it makes you crave more sugar! I have definitly had some crazy sugar cravings lately. I have actually found myself eating handfuls of chocolate chips just to quench these cravings (no, I am not proud of this). So with┬áthat being said, I have decided to commit to the 21 Day Sugar Detox by Balanced Bites. I am going to eliminate all sugar (even fruits and sweet potatoes) for 3 weeks. Before you panic too much, I will still be posting yummy treats that I make for the kids, but I will not be partaking in them. I will also be posting detox treats that I find along the way! I have to be honest, I am not looking forward to the next week. I did a sugar detox last year and I felt awful for a whole week. I just have to remind myself how great I felt after I got through that first week…not to mention losing 35 pounds and killing it in the gym! :)

I welcome all of you to join me! It would be great to have some company in the next 3 weeks…plus I have the tendency to lack motivation and I’m really counting on some of you to help pull me through this! See you on the other side!

  1. Hey Jen, I would love to join you on your Sugar Detox. I would definitely benefit from it but I don’t know if I could live without fruit for 3 weeks. I’d love to know how you do it.

    • It is hard, but I know it isn’t for very long. I got out of the habit of eating fruit daily last year when I detoxed. so i don’t really struggle so much this time around. I have also modified my detox by allowing myself 1/2 cup of mashed sweet potatoes mixed with 2 tablespoons of unsweetened applesauce (plus some cinnamon) for after I WOD to replenish my glycogen stores. This really helps me to not crave sugar the rest of the day. I also have been having either a spinach salad (will post recipe today) or a scoop of coconut butter when a craving hits just to supply myself with some carbs! I hope this helps!
