What is the 21-Day Sugar Detox

I am the only certified 21-Day Sugar Detox Coach in Northern Colorado!

Are you unable to resist sweets?  Do you need coffee and a muffin every afternoon?  Do you think you will perish without pasta?  Break the chains of carb addiction and regain control over what you eat!

​What others think about the program

The 21-Day Sugar Detox is a real-food based program designed to break your addiction to sugars and refined carbohydrate products like pasta, bagels, sweets, and breads.  By changing what you eat, you retrain your taste buds to be able to taste the sweetness in real food.  You will learn how to prepare and appreciate real, whole, healthy foods, and this can set you on the path toward freedom from cravings and better health.  

The 21-Day Sugar Detox is not a quick-fix diet - it is a lifestyle change, a jumping-off point to new habits.  You won't count calories or have to take supplements.  You won't starve.  You will eat well, and in turn, begin to feel well.
 ​"​​I recently completed the “21 Day Sugar Detox” program with Michelle O’Brien as my coach.
The program was well worth it, and  this will be a life-changer for myself, and my family.
Michelle is an awesome coach! She is so knowledgeable, very supportive & helped motivate me along the way.
Clearly, she is passionate about health & nutrition,  & I have learned a ton!
I would highly recommend Michelle, whether you are looking for a Nutritionist, Sugar Detox, Personal Training, Advice or “Just a Coach”!
She is great!

Sleep Better
One of the first things people notice when they start the program is that they begin sleeping like babies again.  When your body isn't busy trying to detox sugar, refined carbs and other junk from your body, it is able to rest more easily and you will sleep deeper and better than you have in years.
"My daughter and I participated in the 21DSD on November 1, 2016. I am pleased to say we completed the 21 day challenge, with the encouragement and support of Michelle OBrien.
I will be honest and say the first week was not pleasant! But with Michelle's coaching, we finished with great success! My daughter's acne cleared up, and she is now very aware of what she puts in her mouth.
I am sleeping better, have lost 5 pounds and am not as sore after a hard work out.
Michelle, was extremely encouraging with her daily emails and recipes. We are eating a modified Paleo diet, and attribute our success to Michelle's coaching and encouragement.
A believer!"

"I did the 21 day detox along with my husband and 2 teenagers. Michelle was great. She was very knowledgeable and helpful every step of the way.  Her daily encouraging and informative emails made it easier to stay on track and not give up or cheat.  The whole family felt better during this 3 week period.  She was always available to answer questions and give tips for recipes.  It was not as difficult as I expected thanks to Michelle’s expertise."

Moms and Families
The 21-Day Sugar Detox is for anyone who is sick and tired of being hungry, tired, overweight​, undernourished or just plain ​​sick with any one of the many common illnesses that plague our nation, such as diabetes, obesity, heart disease, or autoimmunue diseases, to name a few. The inflammation caused by a poor diet underpins all of these diseases.  The 21-Day Sugar Detox will reset your taste buds, teach new habits, and help cool the chronic inflammation that may be causing your problems without you even realizing it.
This is a real-foods diet, which is great for kids as well as adults.  The meals are simple to make, taste delicious and should please even picky eaters.  There are also modifications for pregnant and nursing women.

"I still have not had a little sample of ice cream at work! and I am amazed how I do not even want it. I thought about putting tortilla chips on my leftover "burrito bowl" then I was like oh I don't need those!, and it was an amazing supper. I look forward to exploring this new found freedom eating. Also today I had a delicious brew of drip coffee with half and half ..that was it! no sugar! no desire for it! I hope you can sense the slight amazement I am expressing.  I just feel excited.
I cannot thank you enough. This is not something I ever could have just picked up the book and gone through on my own. Having you as a coach was imperative to my success. Thank you Thank you Thank You!!!!!!!  Cheers to vibrant health!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You will not starve.  You will learn to eat the food your body ​​really craves to help you through your workouts and recovery.  You may find that you have more energy and are getting better results after you take the sugar and refined foods out of your diet!

Are you hungry all the time?  Do you have to eat every few hours or you become cranky and irritated?  Do you crave bagels, pasta or coffee all day, but hate the crash an hour after eating carb-heavy meals?  You are a carb-junkie and it's time to kick your cravings to the curb!

I want to thank you for your guidance these past weeks.  I really feel sooooo much better.   I have tried for years to kick the sugar and gluten, it has never happen until now!!
I feel I will stay with eating the Paleo way.   I think what helped me was to follow the recipes as given in the 21 day meal planner.  Eating out maybe a challenge but I know falling
back into the old rut will not be beneficial to my health....My digestion is better and that is a big plus!  
I lost 5 lbs. most of it in my stomach.  YES!!

Meeting 2:  Between days 2-5 of the Detox to talk about progress, challenges and practical tips for success.

Meeting 3:  Between days 15-18 of the Detox to talk about progress, challenges, and biology of sugar, and how to ease out of the detox.

You will need to purchase the 21-Day Sugar Detox Daily Guide, by Diane Sanfilippo, available on Amazon.  You have the option of joining the official online group as well, for an additional $20.

 I discovered this summer I have lost over 17 pounds, and I'm still headed in the right direction!! I have added a few things back in but my mostly carb and sugar free lifestyle has left me with more energy and confidence!
