I completed the 21 Day Sugar Detox!
My goal was to kick my sugar cravings, which definitely got a bit out of control after the holidays. Although the detox was challenging, I’m so glad I did it.
But I want to illustrate just how tough this was…A few nights before the sugar detox was over, I had a dream that I was in a coffee shop and there were aisles of doughnuts. Like, grocery store aisles filled with doughnuts! After browsing the aisles for a long time, I settled on a cream filled chocolate frosted doughnut and it was heaven.
But the crazy thing, is that I’ve been done with the sugar detox for a few days and I haven’t eaten all of those foods I was craving (doughnuts, waffles, etc.) Maybe I just wanted them because I knew I couldn’t have them.
My first meal after the sugar detox was actually a bowl of overnight oats.
Here is a recap of each week on the detox.
Luckily for me, I didn’t have to give up a ton of foods for the detox since I already ate a pretty healthy diet. It was definitely harder to stick to the detox on the weekends and when going out to eat. I think I only ate out twice during the sugar detox because restaurants didn’t have a lot of options.
Here are foods I ate regularly that I gave up on the detox:
