Sugar-Detox Meal Plan: Week #3

Ten whole days without processed sugar! This is an amazing milestone and something to be extremely proud of in itself. And the good news is the worst is over. The initial physical sugar cravings, headaches, lack of energy and other withdrawal symptoms should start to disappear over the next week if they have not already.

Moreover, this week you should really start to notice some of the benefits this diet offers. You should find yourself awake in the mornings without the help of caffeine and notice your energy levels stabilize throughout the day. You may even start to see improvements in your skin, hair and general appearance. I know I've seen my skin start to calm down over the last few days. 

If you are still having trouble getting a hang of this new diet, I put together a list of tips to help you stay on track and succeed here. One of the MOST common problems I hear about is people struggling to eating enough and then making poor decisions. Please, please make sure you are getting enough calories each day. Make sure you are eating a good breakfast and snacking in between meals. I hope the recipes below give you some ideas as to what to put in your tummy, but keep in mind not every meal need be a fancy dish. Keep things simple if you need to! Oh and absolutely try out the recipe for banana pancakes with some greek yogurt and fresh fruit. I'll be whipping up some tomorrow morning! They are just so fast and the perfect weekend breakfast. :)
