Sugar Detox & Spring Health Challenge
Sugar Detox Challenge
Challenge! Can you avoid added sugars for 30 days?
Sugar wreaks havoc on our bodies causing inflammation, GI disturbances, weight gain, immune dysfunction, blood sugar dysfunction, obesity, and the list goes on. It is also one of the most widely available addictive substances there is.
Humans evolved a craving for sugar. In nature, high sugar foods are high calorie foods, and aren’t very common! We are hard wired to crave it!
So why is it that some of us can have moderation with sugar and some can’t keep our hands off the sweet stuff? That’s where genetics, addictive tendencies, health factors and our individual constitutions come into play.
Challenge Step 1: Getting started
Is this resonating with you? Are you ready to take a leap and cut out sugar for 30 days and see how you feel?
To get started, cut out ALL added sugar (cane sugar, beet sugar, high fructose corn syrup, etc) and refined carbohydrates (white flour, white bread, white pasta, pastries and cookies, etc).
This is really hard. I've been there.
Give yourself one full day to go through your kitchen to clear out those foods and DON’T bring them into the house during the cleanse.
Sugar is one of the most addictive things we have around. Going cold turkey is best. For success with this step we recommend carrying healthy fat and fiber-full snacks with you.
I can't wait for you to get started and to feel and look your best!

What to Expect
After detoxing from sugar, you should expect to have more energy, less aches and pains, chronic diseases improving, mood improving, less digestive upset, and the list goes on!
Once you cut out sugar, you will find yourself tasting and loving the natural sweetness in foods. Berries, grass-fed dairy, carrots, squash, coconut milk, nut butters, are some of my favorites that I now can taste and appreciate the natural sweetness in.
I find the status quo in the currently predominant food and the healthcare systems unacceptable. That’s why I have turned to a better way, naturopathic medicine. Hundreds of millions of people suffer from diet-related ailments while corporate and government policies make junk food normalized and subsidized.
I want to foster a healthcare system that acts like food matters. I want to foster a food industry that acts like health matters! And I want government policy that looks out for the wellbeing of we, the people.
Most of all, I want you to be informed, so you can make healthy choices for yourself, your loved ones, and your planet.
Stay tuned for a new post each week for the next 30 days on a new topic related to the Sugar Detox.
