A simple, delicious meal plan with zero added sugars!
This Sugar-Free Diet is designed to help you kick your sugar habit without feeling deprived. Meals are packed with vegetables, legumes, and whole grains, making it the perfect 14-day detox to help reduce sugar intake.
This program was created with four key considerations:
Following a sugar-free diet is easier if you aim to eat whole foods. Processed foods are more likely to contain refined ingredients or added sugars which can cause certain hormone imbalances. This program focuses on whole foods including vegetables, fruits, lean meats, fish, whole, unprocessed grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds. The plan also includes a small amount of dairy from yogurt to provide bone-building nutrients.
Eating the proper amount and type of carbohydrate is important when following a sugar-free diet to help balance insulin levels. This program uses high-fiber carbohydrate sources paired with healthy fats and high-quality protein to optimize blood sugar control. The plan avoids artificial sugars and provides up to 40 grams of fiber daily.
This meal plan contains smoothie and snack options using low glycemic fruits such as apples and berries to provide a sweet taste without added sugars. These fruits provide a hint of sweetness while also providing fiber and beneficial phytonutrients.
Balanced meals and snacks with good fats increase satiety and stabilize blood sugars. Omega-3 and omega-9 fatty acids provide cardiovascular benefits and reduce inflammation. This program incorporates omega-3 fats, eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) from fatty fish which are associated with improved cognitive function. Omega-9 fats from foods such as nut butter and olive oil are combined with carbohydrates to reduce glycemic response.
