What is the 21-Day Sugar Detox?

This 3-week program was developed by Diane Sanfilippo, nutritionist and New York Times bestselling author and a former nutrition classmate of mine.

The detox is designed to:

  • minimize/eliminate your intake of refined carbohydrates, processed foods, and sugar for 3 weeks.
  • help you become more aware of the foods you may be addicted to or rely on daily
  • give your body and liver a break from foods high in sugar so that it can function more optimally


Is this a juice cleanse or is there a supplement regime?
It is not a juice cleanse, nor a program which requires any supplements to be taken or protein shakes to be consumed.

Will I starve myself on this detox/diet?
There are tons of “real”, whole, unprocessed foods that can be eaten during the detox to help keep you feeling full and satisfied.

What exact forms of sugar are we avoiding?
This depends on the level you decide to participate in, however most levels will restrict: added sugar to foods in any form (sugar, honey, agave nectar, etc), gluten and wheat, corn, alcohol, and most fruits (there are a few allowed). This list is not complete (too many to list here).

Will I lose weight by doing this?
You may, however that is just one of the many benefits that former participants have reported by detoxing. Every participant will have different experiences with the detox. Some report feeling more energetic, able to sleep better and more soundly, clearer thinking, better skin, PMS symptoms lessened, less headaches, reduced inflammation, positive outlook on life just to name a few.


“I joined a 21 day sugar detox that Mike was coaching last April. It was a great experience and well worth trying. Mike was a great coach! He was always available and very knowledgeable about nutrition. I learned A LOT from him. I highly recommend Mike and will work with him again!”
Harshil — OK

“I recommend to anyone interested in trying this detox but who feels very nervous like I did, just DO IT! You won’t regret it! You will start to feel differently, sleep better, and learn new, fun and creative recipes! Love the book that was recommended! My boyfriend and I plan to re-try some of those recipes!!”
Maria — San Luis Obispo, CA

“Definitely experienced a positive change in my health by participating in this sugar detox program! I must say that I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, but by cutting a few simple things out of my diet I lost the weight that was so hard to lose with other plans. I also feel this program is much healthier than some of the others I’ve tried in the past. I have more energy and overall feel healthier since my detox. Absolutely met my expectations!!! I lost 15 pounds, and no longer have my muffin top or fat back.”
Linda — Tracy, CA

“Before starting this cleanse, I had a major sweet tooth. I was surprised at how sharply this changed my taste buds. I can now honestly say I dislike most sweet things — or I only need a spoonful to feel satisfied. Avoiding white sugar is so much easier now because my cravings are gone.”
Ellen — San Francisco, CA

“This program mapped out a whole new way of eating for me.  Taking sugar out of my diet was never even a thought for me.  During the 21 days I detoxed, I couldn’t believe how much sugar I used to consume.  This program met all of my expectations.”
Addie — Redwood City, CA
