FAQs about The 21-Day Sugar Detox – in print and the online program

I can't believe it's been almost three years since I originally published The 21-Day Sugar Detox as an eBook. Since April 2010, The 21-Day Sugar Detox has helped thousands of people to bust their sugar and carb cravings naturally.

The 21Day Sugar Detox in Print!The whole-foods based approach to making dietary and lifestyle habits has proven effective again and again – and the program now has a following of nearly 20,000 people in the Facebook community.

I've received overwhelmingly positive reviews and feedback on my first book, Practical Paleo, and I've decided to take that information and apply it to the printed version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox.

Heck there are so many things I loved about the way Practical Paleo turned out, including the design, that I even hired the same amazing design team at Graphic D-Signs, Inc. to create the cover for The 21-Day Sugar Detox. I love how it has a similar feel to Practical Paleo, but has a whole new and fresh look of its own!

Here's the back cover information from the printed book:

Are you ready to get your sugar and carb cravings under control? The 21-Day Sugar Detox is a clear-cut, effective, whole-foods-based nutrition action plan that will naturally re-set your body and your habits! More than 10,000 people have already succeeded with this easy-to-follow plan. Now it's your turn! In just three weeks, you can free yourself from cravings, regain your energy, and feel great again.

This simple detox plan will help you break the stronghold of your worst go-to foods: the sweets, the refined grains you grab on the go, even the many seemingly “okay” foods that contain hidden sugars. These foods taste great, but they make you look and feel terrible. They rob you of your focus, spawn irrational mid-afternoon cravings, and make it so you can't even get through the day without wanting–no, needing–to prop up your energy level with caffeine or, worse, even more sugar!

It's time to break the cycle. The 21-Day Sugar Detox offers easy-to-follow meal plans and more than 75 recipes suitable for all levels of the program. Even better, it gives you three options so you can determine the level of detox you want. Whether you've never gone sugar or gluten free; you already follow a gluten- and grain-free diet; or actively follow a Paleo/Primal diet–there's a level for you. Choose the level that's best for you — and bust a lifetime of sugar and carb cravings in just three weeks.

The 21-Day Sugar Detox 

even includes special modifications for athletes (including endurance and CrossFit/HIIT-style training); pregnant/nursing moms; vegetarians/ vegans; and those with autoimmune conditions.

Start The 21-Day Sugar Detox today. Why wait?
I'm sure lots of you reading this already own the original eBook version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox and the arrival of the new book has possibly left you with more questions… have no fear! I've anticipated your questions and hope to answer most of them right here… as well as here, here, and here.

What will be different about the printed version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox and the eBook program version?

21DSD-workoutFirst and foremost, the eBook program will no longer be available as of October, 2013 and support/help for the original eBook program will discontinue as of January 31, 2014.

The eBook program version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox included added bonus content that is not included as part of the printed book: The 21DSD Exercise Guide, The 21DSD-friendly Toadally Primal Smoothies Guide, The 21DSD Yoga Guide – and possibly more as time goes on. The limitations of printed books are, quite obviously, that I can't just keep updating it and providing that update to people whenever I would like.

But there's good news, too! These additional guides will be updated and included as part of the new Beyond Sugar Detox program.

If I already own the eBook program of The 21-Day Sugar Detox, why would I want or need the printed version?

I don't want anyone to feel like they need to get this version. If you want to complete the program again and have been successful with the eBook version you are welcome to complete it again using those resources. The core of the program and the levels will remain the same with some minor updates. Many of you have been asking for a printed version of the book for nearly three years now, so this is the answer to that request!

The printed version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox includes 21-Day Meal Plans that correspond to the levels of the program and will use recipes from within the book itself. These recipes will be available only in the printed book, but some of them may already also exist in the eBook program. In other words, all of the new recipes found in the printed book will not necessarily be in the eBook program, but some of the existing recipes you have in the eBook program may appear in the printed book as well.

What new content will there be in the printed version of The 21-Day Sugar Detox that isn't in the eBook program?

ChickenWithPeppersTallAs I mentioned above, there will be 21-Day Meal plans for each level of the program, with notes made for athletes, pregnant/nursing moms, and for vegetarians/vegans. There are not currently meal plans available within the eBook program and there are not plans to add them.

The printed version includes primarily completely new content including several new guides, over 90 21DSD-friendly recipes, and a lot more answers to all of your frequently asked questions that arise before, during, and after the program.

After three years of running the program and thousands of participants, I have tons of research collected on how and what you'll be feeling every step of the way – as well as extensive knowledge of the vast array of questions that arise. Your questions will be answered in this book!

This book will be formatted quite differently from the eBook program and will somewhat mimic the format and content flow that you've come to know and love in my first book, Practical Paleo. 

The 21-Day Sugar Detox printed book is divided into three sections:

  1. background information on the program including lots of FAQs/what to expect, useful guides, shopping lists, and tons of tips and tricks for success for your 21 days
  2. 21-Day Meal Plans for each of the three levels of the program based around the recipes included in the book
  3. Recipes! Over 90 recipes, most of which will be completely new and original to the printed version of the book and will be completely different from those found within Practical Paleo!

Will all of the foods I'm currently eating as part of The 21-Day Sugar Detox as outlined in the eBook program still be included in each level when the printed book is released?

Yes! The foods included in your Yes Foods Lists will not get any smaller, but some new additions and notes may be made in the printed version. After three years of running this program, I've decided that there is room for a bit of modification to what the three levels include.

  1. Is the ebook as we know it not available anymore, or is it available for download with the book. I’m trying to understand if the electronic guides that come with the pre-order book purschase are the same as the old ebook that used to be on sale?
