WONDERING IF YOU SHOULD BREAK UP WITH SUGAR?

 

If you’re not entirely sure whether you need a sugar detox, take a moment to answer the following questions.

  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, 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 and can't?

  8. Are you following a low-fat, whole-grain-rich diet that just isn’t working with your fat-protein-efficient body type?

  9. Does the way you eat leave you feeling unsatisfied, hungry, and grazing on snacks every 2 to 3 hours?

  10. Do you follow a clean-eating type of lifestyle (including, but not limited to, Paleo, primal, low-carb, vegetarian, Weston Price, and real food), but still experience carb or sugar cravings?

 

Did your doctors suggest a sugar detox to get your blood sugar levels under control? If you’re like most people and answered YES to at least one of these questions, then you’re a good candidate for The 30-Day Sugar Detox

WHAT IS THE 30-DAY SUGAR DETOX? CLICK HERE TO LEARN MORE!

 

Sugar is a sneaky thing. It doesn’t just cause cravings and make you fat; consuming too much of it can lead to all kinds of health issues, both in the short term and in the long term. To give you a bit more grounding here, let’s look at a handful of less-obvious signs of sugar addiction, chronically erratic blood sugar levels, and nutrient deficiencies that may be caused by overconsumption of nutrient-poor carbohydrate foods:

 

Short Term        

  • Acne

  • Fatigue

  • Hormonal imbalance

  • Mood swings

  • Muscle fatigue or weakness 

  • Other food addictions

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS), painful periods, hot flashes, night sweats

  • Rashes

  • Susceptibility to colds and flu 

  • Unrestful sleep

 

Long Term

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • Anemia

  • Cystic acne, eczema, psoriasis

  • Depression, anxiety

  • Hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis dysfunction

  • Insomnia

  • Insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes

  • myelopathy, neuropathy

  • PCOS, infertility 

  • Substance abuse

 

When I talk about being addicted to sugar, I’m not just talking about foods that you know to be sweet, or even candy itself. Unless you avoid packaged and processed foods entirely, you probably eat way more sugar than you think! Did you know there are 60+ hidden names of sugar, yes that's right so sugar is in everyone's diet. 

The foods available in today’s grocery stores are a veritable minefield, with added sugars hidden in nearly everything—bread, pasta sauces, salad dressings, “natural” peanut butter, “healthy” cereals, and even deli meats. These foods have been scientifically engineered to appeal to your senses at both a conscious and a subconscious level. Food scientists are constantly working on ways to strike just the right balance of sweet/salty/fatty, or at least the sensations of these tastes, to keep you coming back for more. 

Have you ever noticed that there’s sodium in soda? So the very thing you’re drinking to attempt to quench your thirst is actually going to make you even thirstier! Tricky, right? And that can of soda contains about 10 teaspoons of sugar, too. 

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, roughly 13% of adults’ total daily caloric intake between 2005 and 2010 came from added sugars. That’s about 22 teaspoons a day! When you avoid added sugars, you do yourself a favor by eliminating many packaged foods from your diet. In turn, you eliminate many other harmful ingredients and preservatives.

Even though it may feel like the deck is stacked against you, The 30-Day Sugar Detox can truly help. With the 30-day sugar detox cleanse you can educate yourself about what you’re eating and what those foods do to your body, and you can break the cycle of sugar addiction.

 

The 30-day sugar detox cleanse is a real food-based program designed to reduce and/or eliminate your cravings for sugar and carbohydrates. Through this four-week program, which focuses on quality protein, healthy fats, and good carbs, you’ll change not only the foods you eat, but also your habits around food, and even the way your palate reacts to different foods. Removing added sugars and very sweet foods retrains your taste buds to perceive sweetness, and you’ll find that foods you once thought weren’t sweet at all become quite sweet as the days pass. Even the non-sweet treat recipes in the Sugar Detox Workshop and on the Life in Recovery blog here will taste quite different to you on Day 30 than they do on Day 1!

Ready to do this?! You can get started right away or wait until the first Monday of the month when we facilitate an incredibly welcoming and supportive community-wide 30-day sugar detox challenge check the five dates for the 30-day sugar detox cleanse and our annual schedule throughout the year.

What To Expect: Sugar Detox Daily Guidelines

Congratulations on finding your way to Spiced Life Conversation, LLC where we like to help our clients "Organize Yourself Healthy.™ Since you found us I'm assuming you've decided to implement a new strategy of achieving optimal health and ridding sugar from your life. Or at least reduce your intake by joining us in living a low-sugar lifestyle. 

 

As a License Certified Trauma-Informed Nutritionist, Recovery Coach, and Herbalist I spend my time teaching women in recovery how to perform a

 

30-day Sugar Detox to jumpstart their low-sugar lifestyle to overcome sugar addiction...

Deal with grief, and unresolved emotional pain from the past that triggers emotional/binge/stress eating and codependency people pleasing thinking and behavior...

 

In my work as a Notary Public and Certified Loan Signing Agent, I help women in recovery and their families get their affairs in order by teaching them the importance of end-of-life planning, creating their legacy, and organizing their finances as well as making their financial self-care a top priority as part of their recovery goals.  

 

I’ve compiled some recent thoughts on various levels or stages of the detox to support you in the next seven days. I’d like to share some motivational tips on these tasks in hopes that you’ll find some inspirational words that resonate with you, creating a 4-week worthy and most valuable experience even if at times you may feel otherwise.

 

BEING WILLING TO CHANGE 

First off, remember that you’ve already taken the initial steps to research this program and learn more about how sugar can be detrimental to your health. Deciding to prioritize your health and the needs of your body is a crucial component to laying the foundation for a healthy future. Take a second to acknowledge this moment as a time in your life when you are ready to embrace change and all that comes with the 30-day commitment to establishing the foundation needed to begin your low-sugar lifestyle, whether it is positive or negative, easy, or difficult. Knowing that a change in mindset and daily action is necessary to initiate a new stage in your health and accepting this first step with open arms will make your detox cleanse experience much easier and more meaningful.

BREAKING OLD HABITS And LIMITED BELIEFS

 

After accepting the initial “challenge of change,” the willingness to let go of

old habits should follow suit. During this stage, know that you’re not alone in your struggle to rid old patterns, faculty mindset, unresolved emotional pain, and eradicate addictions (in this case sugar in any form, codependent people-pleasing thinking and behavior, and binge/stress/emotional eating) AND to create new ones. It definitely can be a daunting task, especially if your habit is an old one that has carried with you for most of your life. However, do not let that dictate your future low-sugar lifestyle and the change that you have committed to and promised yourself you’d honor. Forming new habits takes time and the 30 days is just the beginning of hopefully a fresh, healthy mindset and lifestyle. Reminding yourself how you feel mentally and physically while indulging in bad eating habits and maybe even journaling are two ways to document your journey and help keep you on track during this phase. We hold Jounranling Q&A sessions on Monday and Wednesday from 10 am-12 pm all replies are via email however you can post questions inside the BodyPeace Community and a team member will relay to you via email be sure to let us know you are part of the Monday and Wednesday Journal group session, schedule a private session for Q&A click the link below.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LEARNING TO LET GO OF PERFECTIONISM

Lastly, learning to accept your flaws, mistakes, cheats, and so-called “weaknesses” and move on with a focused, clean-slate mentality will enable you to tackle the sugar detox cleanse with positivity and an open mind. Following the sugar detox cleanse by the book will of course yield the best results, but when you stumble and find yourself in a situation where you’ve fallen off the wagon, simply pick yourself up and treat your next snack or meal as a new opportunity to make wise food decisions. This is one reason we created the Monday and Wednesday journaling Q&A sessions to support you and hold you accountable. No one person is perfect and obsessing over whether or not you did everything 100% correctly will add more stress to your plate. Give it your very best attention and effort and be kind to yourself when and if you have a slip-up.

A BETTER VERSION OF YOU TO BE A RODEL MODEL FOR YOUR KIDS AND FAMILY

I’ll leave you with some last words of encouragement to guide you along your journey before listing the task for the next seven days. Give yourself some due credit for taking on this challenge. You’ve taken action and that is quite significant! Some sit and ponder initiating changes to their diets, exercise plans, and life habits, but thinking is not the same as doing. Accept the challenge and be open to new ways of looking at and thinking about refined sugar and processed food. Do realize that you might not like something the first or second time you try it, but that’s all part of the learning process.

And last, be kind to yourself. You may find others in your life may not quite understand why you’re partaking in this challenge. Or you may find yourself comparing your results to other 30-Day Sugar Detox participants or others taking on other food elimination challenges, diets, or programs. Be happy for other participants’ success stories but not to the detriment of your own mental state and esteem. Despite what you may think at times, you’re making strides in the right direction. Know that with a patient attitude and desire to inch your health forward one step at a time, you’ll be that new version of yourself soon enough.

WHAT TO EXPECT:

Day 1: SETTING GOALS AND DETERMINING YOUR WHY

The central goal for completing the 30-Day Sugar Detox is to get sugar and bad carbs out of your life for the four weeks of the challenge. And, most likely, you also have a goal of reevaluating your dietary habits after the challenge, based on what you learn over those four weeks. But I also want you to think about the goals that are more specific to you! What’s your “why”—the reason that you personally want to complete the 30-day sugar detox cleanse? Will it mean that you’ve finally committed to doing something for yourself making your self-care a top priority and followed through? Will it mean you’ve done something harder than you ever thought possible? Will it mean that you’ve supported a friend or loved one through the challenge to jump-start their healthy eating journey? "Perhaps it was your doctor's orders due to health conditions. Changed some of the unhealthy habits your family had fallen into? Learned how to nourish your body so you feel good every day while eating healthy whole foods—and enjoyed it?

 

Over the years that I’ve led folks through the low-sugar lifestyle, I’ve learned this: once you complete the 30-Day Sugar Detox, your confidence level will spike. If you previously struggled with feeling incapable of doing things that are uncertain or scary for you, the positive effects of this program will go far beyond the physical. Yes, you’ll absolutely feel great physically when you get rid of sugar, but the wave of pride that’ll sweep over you when you successfully finish the 30-day sugar detox cleanse may be the exact boost you need to make some amazing changes in other areas of your life. That is why I choose to finally make this opportunity public by bringing it online for others to experience.

So now’s the time to dig deep and uncover your goals for this program, your personal “why.”

Lesson 1

WHAT IS YOUR WHY?

Write in a journal, in as much detail as possible, the reason(s) why you want to break your sugar and carb cravings. What will it mean to you to complete this 30-day sugar detox cleanse challenge and the sugar detox workshop? How will you feel when it’s done—not only physically but also emotionally and mentally?

 

A Quick Tip FROM MICHELLE:

You’ve got to stick to your plan, take time to prepare your food, read the daily lesson, and find answers to your questions in the email support, in the printed books (if you have them), and in the BodyPeace Community to keep your 30-day sugar detox cleanse running smoothly.

TODAY'S CHECKLIST:

  • Log your food and rebuild your meals using GuttyGirl-approved food swaps*

Day 2: Kitchen Detox: Cleanup Fridge and Pantry Challenge

Lesson 2

“Is my fridge going to be full of junk food for the next four weeks?”

You are probably feeling excited, anxious … and even busy! Approach the 30-day Sugar Detox Cleanse feeling hopeful and positive. A good attitude is the best foundation, along with all of the planning and prep you have done. Now, time to clean up the kitchen!

Day 3: I'm Starting to Get Anxious

After a couple of days of reflection and cleaning up all the excitement wears off and reality kicks in. You begin to think oh shit, can I do this? My fellow GuttyGirl, of course, you can!

 

It’s getting closer, so anxiety is natural, especially if this is your first 30-day sugar detox cleanse. But look at all of the prep work you have already completed in cleaning out your kitchen and everything you have learned this week about why you are committed to this journey. You are ready for this new journey, don't you dare try to talk yourself out of it. 

Lesson 3

Get your mindset, right. Reframe any doubt that will discourage you. 

 

Acknowledge God, and ask for strength and guidance as you work through the challenge.

Thank Him for giving you life and the ability to nourish and take care of your chosen vessel. Mentally say out loud or in silence, a prayer, Thank you, God, for giving me the strength and willingness I need to release the fears that are triggering me to quit before I start. Please clear away the effects of fear, faulty thinking, and feelings of unworthiness from trauma and childhood conditioning that are in my cellular memory, my heart, and my body. 

Affirm to yourself daily:

I crave healthful foods.

I love exercising.

I love eating whole foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables.

I have plenty of time to read the lesson and do the work.

my body is in the process of detoxing and healing itself.

When I eat healthfully, I feel wonderful. 

Then throughout the day ponder the #1 acceptance statement to keep you on track and in the right mindset. 

 Physical Healing: “I accept my body’s natural capacity to heal. I am attentive to its needs and nurturing towards its well-being.”

TODAY'S CHECKLIST:

Fill your mind with positive affirmations about the situation that seems to be triggering your doubt and worry. 

Day 4: Let the prepping begin!

 

Lesson 4

Now that you are just a few days out, it's a good idea to start prepping some of the recipe basics you'll be using the first week, such as the ketchup. This will keep you from feeling overwhelmed as day 1 approaches.

 

TODAY'S CHECKLIST:

Write down your menu for the first week and all your food and, using the GutyGirl Lifestyle Simple Food Swaps Guide*, begin thinking of the GuttyGirl Lifestyle-approved food swaps that you might enjoy in place of some of what you ate then start shopping and orgazing everything for prepping for the week.

 

Day: 5 You May Be Wondering As I Did, Oh Shit, I'm Never Going To Be Able To Eat My Granddaddy's Caramel Cake Ever Again!

 

Lesson 5

As you start thinking about how your meals will change, you may find that you are enjoying your non-detox-approved foods. But by day 30, you won’t even miss them! Don’t worry, we’ll talk about how and when (and maybe why not) to reintroduce your favorites after the detox ends, to see how you feel eating them. But if you're like me my tastebuds shift to savory foods and I occasionally want sweets. If this is the case you can makeover your favorite childhood treats like I have learned to do with monk fruit, stevia, and swerve sweeteners. 

TODAY'S CHECKLIST:

Get over your fear of never eating sugar again. It's not that deep this is not a no-sugar-for-life teaching. It's a get your blood sugar under control first then learn how to manage your food choices and become more mindful of what you put in your body that is harming your health. 

Day: 6 Do I really need to get rid of everything tempting?

Lesson 6

You may feel like it’s unnecessary to get rid of the chips, cookies, or crackers in the pantry or the ice cream in your freezer, but when you arrive home after a long stressful day at work on day 6 of your 30-day sugar detox cleanse, you’re going to be happy they aren’t sitting there to tempt you. Today I know I am strong and in control of my cravings because although I am a nutritionist and live a low-sugar lifestyle my husband does not. In fact, he owns and manages a vending machine company and we have all kinds of snacks in our home to tempt me but I've learned to live low-sugar. When I have a taste for peanut M&M I grab a pack from his inventory but on the real, it ain't that serious. I'm telling you once you've retrained your taste buds and are able to manage your blood sugar levels and eat food in moderation and a more balanced way. The 30-day sugar detox cleanse has changed the way I look at eating and has helped me make better choices when looking at labels and making over my recipes as well as eating desserts that I like that are processed in moderation. I don't restrict myself I live by the 80/20 rule 80% whole foods 20% everything else. 

 

TODAY'S CHECKLIST:

For now remove all temptation until you have gone through the 30-day process and learned how to manage your blood sugar cravings, and make healthy food choices. 

 

 

Day: 7 If you're like me you're having thoughts like I'm totally excited for this, I think…

 

Lesson 7

At this point, you are probably nervous about how you'll succeed. But at the same time, you're feeling so ready for this change—in fact, you wonder if you really need an entire week of prep. All I can say is this: trust the process. Feelings of anxiety and nervousness are typical when you decide to embark on the 30-day sugar detox cleanse challenge. Taking the coming week to prepare and learn about sugar will help you get ready for day 1. As you head into this week, keep in mind that the efforts you make now will help you truly succeed over the thirty days. Inevitably, those who commit to the challenge one day and then start it the next… well, they fail. This program requires that you prepare for it, and when you're truly ready, your commitment will pay off and you're able to move forward into the next level of the sugar detox workshop learning more deeper details about living a low-sugar lifestyle!
