Favorite thing about the program: It's easy. The recipes are easy and delish. The “do” list is sensible. The list of stores and products to buy from is so helpful.

In my own words
I found your books on Amazon while searching for Paleo recipe books. I am a massage therapist. I am 44, and I adopted my two preteen cousins a couple years ago. Life is crazy and busy. And no matter how good my intentions were at eating healthy, organic, low carb, and gluten-free, we always seemed to fall back into our old unhealthy fooding habits — eating out all the time and buying premade food items at the grocery store, from Safeway to Whole Foods.
Then I bought your 21-Day Sugar Detox. Magical things happened! We started the detox on Christmas Eve 2016, the day after the boys were set free for winter break from school.
My weight, inflammation, pain, and stiffness started to melt away within days. I haven't been weighing myself, but I went from poking out of my XL clothes to fitting in my “skinny” jeans and size Large.
My oldest boy stopped getting into trouble at school and is becoming a model student!! We did the detox during this past winter break from school. He was getting into trouble at school and not doing classwork and homework in the days, months, and years leading up to the detox. When school resumed last month, the negative emails and phone calls from his school ended. Positive ones have been flowing in since school resumed in early January!!
What's more, my mom, who is 69 and has a wide range of health issues, started the detox in January after seeing my physical results. She has lost 22 lbs. in about a month!! Over the years, she has tried every diet out there to combat a lifetime of being overweight. This is the only “diet” that has worked for her!
As an update (May 2017), the kids' behavior is still improving. I am still inching down to smaller clothes. I went from busting out of size 16 loose fit khakis to easily pulling on size 14 slim fits. We have tried to maintain a low sugar diet. Of course we cheat now and then, but overall we are so much better off after doing the sugar detox and realizing that this is a life change not a one time affair.
I've been telling my kids, in regard to their bad behavior, to consider that they have an allergy to sugar. While I sneeze and have watery eyes due to pollen and people with peanut allergies can choke and die, sugar makes my kids ultra negative, easily offended, and lashing out–it really clouds their judgment. Off sugar, they make better choices and are more friendly and positive.
So awesome to see them blossom! Thank you so much!!!♡♡♡
Wow, this is fantastic! Thanks for sharing and great job with your family! <3
