Join Dr. Sara’s 15 Day Sugar Detox (FREE)

Welcome to my 15 Day Sugar Detox!

You can start this sugar detox anytime and you’ll always have my full support! I’m here to ensure you have all the tools needed to succeed on your cleanse.

I am committed to helping you create a new relationship with nutritious foods that are absolutely delicious. Nutritious foods are natural, high in vitamins and minerals, and life-giving.

Nutritious foods are not the kind that have labels like low fat or sugar-free. In fact, during your Sugar Detox, you’re asked to avoid foods that come in a box as much as possible.

Aim for nutrient-dense foods that have life. This means nothing processed.

You want to consume a diet that is high in fibre, lean protein, vegetables, and healthy fats.

Sounds pretty simple and it is.

In fact, eating clean has never been easier and aside from monitoring your carbohydrate intake, you can EAT AS MUCH AS YOU LIKE!

Although I don’t want you to get caught up on the rules, there are some dietary guidelines that will help you get the most out of your cleanse.

Let’s review!

It’s a sugar detox – so there aren’t too many sweeteners to choose from. See below.

When it comes to carbs, here are the basics.

The body breaks carbohydrates down into simple sugars which may feed yeast in the intestines. On this sugar detox, one of our goals is to reduce yeast and stop feeding it.

Try to minimize your total carbohydrate content and aim for 20-60 grams of carbohydrates.

Carbs to choose from (max 20-60 grams per day).

  • Legumes
  • Corn
  • Millet
  • Rye
  • Amaranth (actually a seed)
  • Barley
  • Long and short grain brown rice
  • Oats
  • Buckwheat
  • Quinoa

Please let me know if you have any questions!

Lastly, if you haven’t already done so, I suggest you watch this awesome 3 minute video all about sugar!

You’re all set.

Happy Cleansing!
