7-Day Sugar Detox Challenge

Ready to slim down and feel fab? Reboot the way you look and feel with our 7-day sugar detox challenge.

Use this sugar detox as a starting point for a new and improved lifestyle. Excess sugar plays a role in obesity, but it’s also been implicated in a number of chronic conditions that have serious impacts on health and quality of life. Too much sugar consumption has been linked to type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and dementia. In one study, researchers discovered that sugar actually fueled the growth of cancer cells [1].

With this healthy eating challenge, you have the tools you need to reduce sugar intake! These delicious recipes will show you that you can eat well without added sugar junking up your system. Plus, because this is a seven-day menu, it’s definitely a doable meal plan that allows you to meet your goals for reducing the white stuff.

While the recipes include whole food ingredients, some also include minimally processed foods, like salsa. When you’re shopping for prepared foods, always read the ingredient label carefully to make sure it doesn’t include added sugar. Bookmark Names for Sugar so you can check the labels for hidden sources.
