Monthly Sugar Detox Challenge

Hello from Pennsylvania!

We’re settling in here for a week or two and are happy to be off the plane and out of the car.  It was a long travel day on Monday, and then one little girl refused to go to sleep- I think the sight of the packers sent her mind whirling.  But, things seem to be calming down and we’re all slowly catching up on our sleep.

I also got in a great track workout yesterday.  But more on marathon training later.

Over the last few months, I’ve hosted several sugar detox workshops and loved doing tele-conferences last week for Amanda’s challenge.

Have you wondered if you’re addicted to sugar? For those of you who did the first challenge with me, you know how powerful it can be to take back control of your food and cleanse your body with a simple detox!

Personally, I am finding that I need to implement this challenge on a monthly basis. So… I recently accepted the challenge from IIN to launch tele-courses as well.

After hosting round one and round two of the Sugar Detox Challenge, I’m excited to begin to offer a monthly sugar detox challenge plus an optional sugar detox tele-course:


This one-hour seminar will give you the tools you need to kick off your 7-day detox!  It will include:

  • How to know if you have a sugar addiction
  • 8 common causes of cravings
  • The best and the worst sugar alternatives
  • Tips to overcome your sugar cravings
  • How to use the 7 day sugar detox
  • Natural Supplements to decrease cravings
  • Time for your questions

Plus handouts and resources, including:

  • 10 healthier dessert and cookie dough recipes
  • A 7 day Sugar Detox Meal Plan
  • Meal planning templates
  • Info sheets on cravings and sweetener alternatives

Everyone (whether you do the tele-course or not) can join a group 7 day detox the following Monday- Sunday with a shared accountability form.


Seminars will be held about once a month.  Upcoming dates and times include:

Wednesday, July 31, 2013 at 1:30 pm EST

Thursday, August 1, 2013 at 8:30 pm EST

Thursday, September 5, 2013 at 8:30 pm EST

Thursday, October 3, 2013 at 9:00 pm EST


The first detox will run from Monday, Aug 5- Sunday, Aug 11, 2013.

Those who are interested can continue to detox each month together.

This detox has helped me permanently change my relationship with sugar. And I know that you can reset your cravings and prove to yourself that you do have control over your cravings!

  1. I don’t have a candy/refined sugar problem, but I definitely have trouble with coffee in the morning… I just can’t kick it. I don’t know if it’s the sugar or the caffeine I’m more addicted to!

  2. I feel so much better with limiting sugar, it has been 2 years and amazing! When I do eat something sugary I feel awful and it doesn’t even taste good 🙂

  3. I think a monthly sugar detox is a great idea! I feel so much better after I’ve cleaned up my diet for at least a week and am currently working on that. Struggling this week with avoiding all sugars but doing better at only eating the more natural ones. I might have to join you in August!

  4. I’ve had my diabetic mom around for a week and it makes me realize how often I want to go for carbs and/or sugars in a single day. I haven’t while she’s here because I know she can’t have them (she controls her condition with diet and doesn’t have to take insulin at all!), I hope to continue this reduced sugar thing after she goes. 🙂

  5. I detoxed myself in January of this year. After wanting to claw my eyes out and punch anybody who was within punching range the first couple of weeks, I realized just how addicted I was to sugar. I was astonished. Seriously. And mad. I thought of all the hidden sugar I had consumed my entire life and had unwittingly served to my own children over their lives at home, creating more addiction. Honestly, I’ve found that when I do slip up and cave in to something sugar laden, I feel TERRIBLE! Truly. That’s enough to remind me that I don’t need refined sugar in my life. Can’t wait to follow your detox plan progress 🙂 I’ll be sharing your posts with my middle daughter who is by far the most serious sugar addict in our family.

  6. Glad you’re settling in! Sugar is definitely something I can struggle with feeling addicted to. Usually, I’m pretty good at steering clear, but sometimes I get a craving and when I give in, I notice that it’s hard to stop.

    • Hey Gabby- great question! I’ve used raisins or other dried fruit in the past, or you could try a small pieces of banana… I’ve also been finding that I can go up to 15 miles without fuel if I eat enough before hand,(this also teaches your body to start burning fat rather than just glucose which can sustain you longer) so you might surprise yourself if you want to try. 🙂 Glad you signed up!

  8. I am definitely addicted to sugar and tried to start my own detox about a week ago. I failed miserably. Cutting out sugar is really hard! I look forward to learning from you!

  10. Thanks for the article. I can’t wait to try this detox. My sugar intake has been insane the last few days from sweet tea to various desserts.
