We did it!
CONGRATULATIONS! We have come to the end of the detox. If you only joined us a for a few days – WELL DONE, if you joined and fell off the wagon a bit – WELL DONE, if you completed the entire detox WELL DONE. You have all committed (it doesn’t matter if it was for a day or for 21 days) and that is something to be very proud of! YOU SHOULD CELEBRATE. I don’t mean go out and have 10 shots of tequila haha but celebrate. In a way that heals and honors your body and the changes you made towards wellness.
I know that life is full of reasons to celebrate. But today, celebrate yourself, your commitment and dedication to be healthier. It does not matter if you didn’t cross the finish line; all that matters is that you started this journey. You took on the challenge – and it was by no means an easy one. And that is something amazing.
Thank you for joining me on this journey, I could not have done it without you. I have learnt just how hard it actually is to dedicate time each day to write a short blog and to track all my meals. Something I will most definitely continue. I also thought at the beginning of the detox – wow 21 days is along time, can I do it? And now that I have I feel exhilarated and proud and realized it wasn’t long at all. And it was so worth it. I have become more in tune with my body and I feel amazing.
I will be back soon with another adventure so be sure to stay tuned.

Guidelines for Coming off the diet after 21 days
the information is from the 21DSD
- The day after your 21 sugar detox ends, choose one food to eat again (that you haven’t been eating)
- Eat that food at all three meals along with foods you had included during your detox – so you reintroduce only one potentially problematic food at a time▪ Do not eat that food again for the next 2 days
- Note any changes in the following for a full 72 hours after eating the food: mood, energy, appetite, digestive function (like bloating, gas, loose stool, or diarrhea), headaches, inflammation, and mental clarity. Your notes will be some of your best guides as to whether you are sensitive to the food you just reintroduced. Listen to your body.
- The author of the 21DSD book recommends never reintroducing gluten-containing grains such as wheat, barley, rye, and spelt. She also does not recommend making pasteurized dairy or unfermented soy products a regular part of your life
- Add back foods little by little. A bender on a bunch of sugary foods will almost always leave you feeling very sick.
- Starchy foods are best consumed on days when you are most active, in the meal following your activity, like potatoes & sweet potatoes.
- Continue to avoid refined foods such as bread, pasta, cereal, and other products made from flour and purchased in packages. The longer it can last on the shelf the more bad products it contains. Keep it fresh and healthy.
- Don’t have candy immediately after the detox – instead choose fresh or dried fruits. Fruits should not be eaten alone if you have had problems with blood sugar regulation and cravings. Also stick to what is in season and berries are the lowest in sugar.
