get the 21-Day Sugar Detox Book by Diane Sanfilippo

For a few years, Diane Sanfilippo has shared her expertise on sugar cravings in an e-book called The 21 Day Sugar Detox, where she outlined a program for a three-week detox from sugar.  Whether you think you've got a sweet tooth or not, you may be surprised how sugar affects your daily life (eczema, fatigue, mood swings, acne, blood sugar rollercoasters, and more!).  Take a look at the videos below and consider whether a detox might be beneficial for YOU!  

Want some testimonials? I completed the program twice, myself, and shared my experiences here and here.  My friend Amber has recapped her experiences at, and you can also find great experience posts by Sarah on her blog The Paleo Mom, and George of The Civilized Caveman.  Just google "21-Day Sugar Detox Recap" and you'll see countless positive reviews for this life-changing program.

Now, Diane has revamped and added to her program to create an all-inclusive resource in a real, physical, keep-it-on-your-shelf, toss-it-in-your-bag printed BOOK:

by Diane Sanfilippo


It's just as beautiful and well organized as her first book, Practical Paleo, but with an obvious focus on the way sugar affects the body and what we can do about it.

What is the 21-Day Sugar Detox?  Diane explains it as "a guide for the practical implementation and simple, day-to-day support on navigating food choices while on the program."  I'll let Diane explain the program, and the book's three sections for herself:

Section 1: Program Basics (the science of sugar, the program preparation checklist, day-by-day expectations, supplement recommendations, FAQs, daily success logs, food replacement guides, and guides for sugar pseudonyms, dining out, and fats & oils)
Section 2: Level placements, suggested meal plans, and modification advice for autoimmune conditions, pescetarians, and atheletes
Section 3: Simple recipes! Plus additional resources with recommended products, brands, blogs, and more.
I was lucky enough to receive an advance copy for review, so here's a sneak peek at what's inside the book--the old, the new, and the incredibly helpful!  (I've already discussed the program in previous posts, so I thought a vlog would give a better glance into the book itself and my impression of the new format.)

PREVIEW: 21-Day Sugar Detox Book

Don't have time to watch?  Here are some highlights:

Starts with the science of sugar - how it works (or hurts) in the body!

Tips for how to prepare in advance of your detox:

A guide to what to expect each of the twenty-one days:

Diane's amazing guides on replacing foods, dining out, fats & oils, and more!

A quiz to help you decide which level and modifications are best for you:

The program includes three different levels, as well as modifications for autoimmune conditions, athletes, and pescetarians!

Suggested meal plans for each level, followed by incredible 21DSD-approved recipes, which I've already bookmarked and begun cooking!  Some of my favorites are the spaghetti squash bolognese, veggie pancakes, mustard-glazed chicken thighs, and the moo-less chocolate mousse! (I photograph these regularly on Instagram and shared in my previous posts. They're delicious and you'll quickly forget that you're detoxing!)


The best part? It fits right in your bag!  You can keep it with you while on the detox, so any questions can be answered while you're out and about, or you can have the recipes right there with you at the supermarket.

A reminder for any interested in participating, that there is a Facebook page where moderators answer your questions and concerns regarding the program.  You can join groups beginning the program each month, and sign up for daily motivational emails. 

The 21DSD book launches next week: Tuesday, October 29, 2013!  Go to to learn more about the program and see FAQs, or head straight over to Amazon to pre-order your copy today!  By pre-ordering, you get free access to Diane's useful quick-start guides (more information here).

Again, you can learn more at, or order the book online on Amazon.  PLUS, Diane also has another upcoming cookbook, packed with 21DSD-approved recipes!  Keep an eye out for that in December, or go ahead and pre-order it now: The 21-Day Sugar Detox Cookbook: Over 100 Recipes for Any Program Level.
