It's probably the #1 question I'm asked right now…

“How do I get started on The 21-Day Sugar Detox?”

This post is here to help you get started, and for you to find all of the amazing (and many free) resources I have created to support you in completing the program.

If you've been on the fence and considering jumping on-board, check it out and get started with the group that begins on the first Monday of each month. We'll be kicking off the first group of 2014 on Monday, January 6th!

I know lots of you have questions about how to get started, about the program, and about the books. So, here are some answers for you!

How to get started on The 21-Day Sugar Detox:

STEP 1:

Grab the online program and/or books at any level you like. Or, you can also get the 21DSD Guide book anywhere books are sold if you only want that.

STEP 2:

Use a date of the first Monday of the month,
OR select your own start-date, any day that works best for you/your schedule/your life.

STEP 3:

Connect with others completing the program!
Join us here on FB –> The 21-Day Sugar Detox

and/or on the Members-Only Forums here to talk about your experience

STEP 4:

Make the commitment to yourself & get prepared!
Use the Preparation Checklist in the book and access all of the additional online resources available to on the 21DSD page of this site (as noted throughout the book) including:

  • recipe nutrition facts
  • PDF/printable versions of the 1-page guides & the Success Log to track your progress along the way
  • meal plan shopping lists
  • a list of recommended products & brands
  • more community & support links
  • more articles/blog posts, and relevant podcasts all about The 21DSD and related issues/questions, etc.

STEP 5:

The online program grows and expands over time – and you get anything I add as time goes on.

The above steps are just if you want the extra support we offer all over the place!!!

What if I don't want to (or can't) start on the first Monday of the month? Can I start before or after that?

Yes! You can definitely start anytime you want. I recommend allowing yourself at least 7 days from the time you decide to take on the program to the date you start in order to get prepared – this will ensure the highest rate of success for you with the program, though you don't need to have that much “head-start”/prep time if you feel you are ready sooner. You can start with one of the monthly groups or anytime that works best for you.

Do you own the original eBook program (PDFs) of The 21-Day Sugar Detox (purchased between April 2010 & September 2013)?

21DSDebookGuide

Check out this post to find out what's different about the new books.

Also, an important note to those of you who own the eBook program:

Support for your purchase made between April 2010 and September 2013 will be provided through January 31, 2014. After this time, we can no longer support questions, troubleshooting, or help in downloading those materials as they will become completely replace by the Beyond Sugar Detox Program.

An amazing benefit you have as an original program owner is the opportunity to opt-in for an amazing $21 discount on the Beyond Sugar Detox Program as a Charter Member before it launches. I'm giving you every dollar you spent on the original guide back if you decide to become a member of the new program – pretty sweet, huh?!

I strongly encourage you to get support to re-download your original program materials if you don't have them accessible somewhere and feel you want them before 1/31/14. Again, after this date, these files will no longer be accessible and the original version of the online program will no longer be supported.

You can access your original downloads page where all of the original eBook program PDF content is held, simply by following the tips on this page or by retrieving the link you used in your receipt email from Clickbank. Your original purchase receipt is all you need to access these updates – you do not need to wait for us for support if you locate this email!

  1. Hi Dianne,
    I just want to start by saying that I love your blog and I have read Practical Paleo and the 21 sugar detox. It was a major help to me, so I can’t thank you enough.
    I don’t have diabetes but I’ve been suffering from hypoglycemia since last year. I even passed out several times with levels like 35 and was unable to eat carbs without crashing to levels like 35, 45 min later. I also did some tests at the hospital (they don’t think reactive hypoglycemia is a real thing and only believe in diagnosis like an insulinoma – doctors here are extremely misformed). However they found out I have nocturnal hypoglycemia in the 40′s during the whole night and that I spend half of my day hypoglycemic.
    I started investigating for myself and I thought I had LADA or something like that but apparently after following the paleo diet my symptoms improved alot. In the first months the hypoglycemia started to happen at the 2h peak instead of the 45min-1h. Now I barely have it (at least during the day – I plan to see what happens at night in my next visit to the hospital – since 40 all night is very dangerous)
    I’ve been checking during the night for a week and surprisingly I didn’t see low numbers, not even close to 40. My glucometer shows numbers around 100 every single night at 2 am. I mean every single night. I started to suspect again this has something to do with diabetes after all but When I wake up around 8.am it’s always 70 or in the very low 70′s. I have to point out I eat some sort of Perfect Health Diet now (not paleo per se). Do you have any idea why I have those kind of numbers now? there seems to be a dysregulation but I don’t think if that’s relevant or not and would like to have your opinion. Also, another question that really confuses me is that I’ve been eating a high protein breakfast with fat and a little bit of carbs for a couple of weeks now (not 50g of protein but fairly high protein for what I was used – usually a couple of eggs and a piece of meat or tuna) and after 1h my blood sugar is usually 110, sometimes goes up to 120. Why does this happen? should I stop eating like this? If you could help me with your opinion I would be very grateful..
    Thank you very much and sorry for my english – I’m from portugal.

  3. I’ve been surfing online more than 2 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth
    enough for me. In my view, if all webb owners annd bloggers
    made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more
    useful than ever before.

  4. Hello. Do you have a small journal book of the daily logs that can be kept in a purse? I am one of those who do not like to write in a ‘main book’ and keep it clean.

      I don’t – the book truly is intended to be a workbook and writing in it is what’s intended as well! I know everyone feels precious about it, but it’s just a book! If you want to put post-it notes over the pages, that’s another option. But writing in a separate book away from the context of what’s in the daily guide isn’t the intent.
