Are Sugar Cravings Getting The Better Of You?

If you’re tired of feeling low on energy &

over watching your waist disappear…

 

do you ever wish…

You could get a good nights sleep, every night, and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to start your day?

 

That your skin looked so clear and glowing that going makeup free was no big deal?

 

You could lose those extra few kilos, for good, and feel amazing in all your clothes again?!

 

I Have Good News For You…

 

The food you put into your body directly influences all these things,
& SUGAR is the key.
 

Have you ever looked at yourself in the mirror, felt deflated, and thought:

 

“What am I missing?!”

 

“No matter how much I exercise or cut calories, I just can’t shift any weight…”

 

The truth is:
The most important factor for change is THE FOOD you eat.

 

New exercise, another diet or expensive supplements won’t help.

If you want to see lasting change, you need to look at the food you’re eating.

 

By cutting sugar and processed foods, you’ll be amazed at the changes you see.

 

You’ll Notice It In Your Skin, Your Digestion, The Way You Sleep, Mental Clarity, Your Weight, And Overall Health.

 

I’ve tried many diets, health fads, and different forms of exercise over the years, including cardio, weight training, kick boxing, dance cardio, boxing, barre, pilates and yoga.

 

You name it, I’ve probably tried it.

 

And while I still love exercise and think it’s hugely beneficial, it wasn’t until I cut sugar and processed foods that things started to change.

 

I saw it in my skin first.

Congestion cleared up and my skin started to glow, as clichéd as that may sound.

 

I started sleeping better than ever, and for once in my life I actually bounced out of bed in the morning.

 

Digestive issues that had bothered me my whole life started to clear up, “brain fog” disappeared and the continuous migraines that no one had been able to solve became a thing of the past.

 

I also lost weight that had slowly crept on over the years, which nothing else had been able to shift.

 

 

Now, it’s no secret that sugar isn’t good for you,
but do you know the real reason WHY?

 

SUGAR IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST CAUSES OF INFLAMMATION IN YOUR BODY,
and CHRONIC INFLAMMATION IS THE CAUSE OF CHRONIC ILLNESS AND DISEASE.

 

More people than ever are overweight and suffering from chronic “lifestyle” diseases. 

 

I believe it’s also no coincidence that we eat more sugar than ever before.

 

If we know all this,

why do we continue to eat the sweet stuff?!

 

Sugar is one of the most addictive substances out there.

 

It lights up the same pleasure pathways as alcohol, gambling and narcotics, and has been shown to be even more addictive than heroin and cocaine in rats!

It’s no wonder we can’t get enough of it.

 

Sugar is everywhere, and trying to detox from it by yourself is hard.

 

 

Which is why I want to help.

 

I’ve combined my first hand experience of going sugar free, my in depth knowledge of health and wellbeing, and my recipe development skills as a chef, to create a program to guide you through 10 days of eating completely sugar-free.

Does Any Of This Sound Familiar?

 

You start the day with the best intentions, have a really healthy breakfast and pack your own lunch, only to reach 3pm and the cravings set in.

You cave, eat a chocolate bar and figure you’ve already blown it so might as well keep going.

 

You’ll do better tomorrow…

 As soon as you tell yourself you can’t have something, like sweets or chocolate, it’s literally all you want! You even wake up wanting that food for breakfast…

 You can’t bear the thought of giving up your morning caramel mocha latte, or the sugary treat you allow yourself after dinner every night…

You already know you eat way too much sugar but you’re too scared to get your glucose tested in case they tell you you’re pre-diabetic!

Yet you still can’t put down the sweet treats…

 

Or Perhaps This:

 

You’ve tried so hard to lose those last few pounds and tone up. Drinking green smoothies, restricting calories, hitting the gym, taking up pilates, but nothing seems to work…

You’ve always been reasonably happy with your body shape, but recently you’ve started to get a tummy pouch and just don’t feel confident in your clothes anymore…

You’ve tried other cleanses and detox programs and felt great while doing them, but as soon as they were over you went back to your old ways and all the positive results disappeared again…

You don’t even have a sweet tooth, you’re much more a savoury person and would take wine, cheese or a packet of crisps over sweets any day.

Yet you still can’t seem to lose that extra weight…

BONUS 1: THE PREP GUIDE

Not everyone is keen to jump straight into a 10 Day Sugar Cleanse and the last thing I want is for it to be SO daunting that you give up before you even start. This guide will lead you through two weeks of preparation to gradually reduce your sugar intake, add in some healthy habits, and get your mind around the idea of going 10 days completely sugar free.

BONUS 2: HIDDEN SUGARS GUIDE

Shopping for food that is completely sugar free and navigating food labels can be very frustrating, not to mention confusing. So I’ve taken the guess work out of it for you with the printable Hidden Sugars Guide. You’ll find all the different names for sugars that you’re likely to encounter (72 and counting!), plus a list of all the unlikely foods that can have sugar hiding in them. You’ll become a sugar savvy shopper in no time!

BONUS 3: SNACKS GUIDE

This guide is bursting with sugar cleanse approved snack ideas and recipes to keep you on track during these 10 days and beyond.

BONUS 4: EATING OUT & SOCIALISING GUIDE

Eating out can be challenging on a sugar cleanse, so the best time to do it is when your social calendar is quiet. But we also know life happens and sometimes social engagements just can’t be avoided. This bonus section helps you navigate where and what to eat, guides you through eating at other people’s houses and in social situations, and provides handy tips and recipes for alcohol alternatives.

The 10 Day Sugar Cleanse Program Works.

Here’s Proof:

I had a baby almost a year ago and my mindset was “I’m breastfeeding so I’m allowed to eat what ever I want”. This is true when your breastfeeding but eating the RIGHT food is what I wasn’t doing. I had no restriction over anything I ate. Food with sugar for me was my worst enemy and I knew it.

I started about 2 months ago and I have lost roughly 7kgs. The first 10 days I was strict but now I have the odd cheat day. People around me started noticing changes with how I looked in the first 2 weeks. I have to admit I love hearing from other people that I look good (even though I find it hard to believe at the moment).

I eat out a lot and I do have to be mindful with my choices and stay strong to Swoon Food’s cleanse. It’s very easy to say I’ll just have this one thing. When I eat out there are usually sauces over everything so I just get those on the side and barely touch them. I never eat bread these days and I don’t really miss it. Swoon Food’s hemp and sunflower seed bread filled the bread gap for me.

What I love about this cleanse is not feeling that hunger for food at 3pm when it’s my usual ‘sweet crave’ crash. I’m pretty content with the food I have eaten and I don’t feel like I need any more food or sweet foods.

This cleanse will make you look and feel amazing in a matter of weeks so I highly highly recommend it.

Wow what a great sugar cleanse! I feel less bloated and more clear headed after the 10 days, not to mention lost 5kg. Admittedly, my diet was not great beforehand and I needed the challenge to make a material difference to my weight. Love the way the shopping list and recipes make removing sugar from meals so easy – it would have otherwise been impossible for me to do this properly. The recipes are stunning, quick and easy to follow and funnily enough even though we were eating fresh, typically expensive foods, our shopping bill was no larger than it would normally have been. Definitely worth it!

Callum McKain

Finance Manager

I have always thought of myself as a sugarholic, but knew it wasn’t really the best thing for my health. So I have been thinking about doing something like a cleanse for a long time, but just never found the time, or really thought I could do it. However, WOW what a difference 10 days makes. I feel amazing and so proud of myself. I’m not going to lie it was hard in the first few days, and I was a bit headachy, and apparently grumpy. But the SOS treats got me through, and by day 5 it was dare I say easy! This cleanse made everything so much easier;  all the information was helpful, the recipes were yum and easy to follow. And the biggest testimony –  is that I am still doing it, because I feel so much better for it. I have really surprised myself at how this cleanse has helped me to change a lot of my bad food habits. Thank you! Rose Tobin McKain

There’s no sugar coating it (pun intended), 10 days Sugar Free is hard work but the sense of achievement at the end is worth it! It was eye opening how many hidden sugars I was consuming and by following the Swoon Food plan I began sleeping better, was actually hungry between meals and I learnt about what my body needs and when. I also felt less puffy and bloated and lost 3.5kg (7.7lbs). I’m looking forward to taking these learnings and adjusting my lifestyle going forward with less reliance on sugar. Vanessa Moore

Demand Supply Planner

I decided to do this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse because I wanted to reset my naughty afternoon snacking, prevent diabetes, gain more energy and mental clarity, and give my exercise and health routine a kick start before summer. It was definitely a challenging 10 days and the initial task of writing down “the why” is great. I took a photo and this helped keep my momentum. 
After 10 days I was sleeping a LOT better, was less puffy/bloated, surprisingly I lost 2kg (I’m normally really stable with my weight) and generally I felt better for it! I also loved all the little handy hints and informative tidbits that come with the recipes. I’m looking forward to rejigging my old eating habits and practicing being more mindful while eating and cooking at home. I think this would be a great cleanse to do annually as a check in.  Thanks José (Swoon Food), I really enjoyed the flavourful recipes and have recommended this Sugar Cleanse to my friends!

Over my life I have embarked on many types of diets to try to lose weight. Low fat, high protein, liquid, fasting and even medications to try and shed those excess kilos. Some worked for a few months some didn’t at all. As the years sped by and the inevitable ageing process accelerated, my body shape settled happily onto the shape of a well ripe apple! Diets didn’t work!
Social media made me gradually more aware of the toxicity of sugar, but how on earth to cut sugar out? It was everywhere and seemed to be in everything in some form or another. I came across José’s (Swoon Food’s) ten day sugar cleanse program and committed myself to the experience.
I was sceptical I could do this but my main motivation was reducing belly fat. I developed quite spontaneously a sense of control over what I was putting into my body. This was a whole new mindset. Something in all my decades of dieting I had never experienced before. This was not a diet. This was a whole new way of eating. I began to see results almost immediately. Not so much on the scales initially, but in the mirror, and the way my clothes fitted. I didn’t feel those familiar hunger pangs that go along with less food. After a few days I wasn’t craving sugar. I noticed my psychological outlook was changing too.
I still don’t profess to completely understand all the science behind what sugar does, but it seemed no coincidence that my brain was sharper and my energy levels higher. I was thrilled to loose 3.5kgs and more importantly to have that stubborn band of tummy fat reduce markedly. I finished the ten day cleanse lighter, healthier and pleased with a changing body shape. And here’s the thing, I continue to eat relatively sugar free. My previous experience finishing a ‘diet’ meant that was it. You finished the diet and pretty much went back to your old habits. Finishing the sugar free cleanse my mindset has been different. Sure there is some sugar back in my diet, but I have an awareness around the form it comes in, and a treat one day doesn’t become a treat every day.

Quality Mentor Trainer

I had been wanting to take a break from eating unhealthy and sugary foods for ages, but I never managed because it felt daunting and impossible to manage. I finally decided to give Swoon Food’s 10 Day Sugar Cleanse a try because 10 days felt doable and the Cleanse was recommended by a colleague. I’m so glad I tried it because I feel like I have now kicked the cravings and feel so much better for it. The plan makes it easy to get organised and the recipes are easy to follow. And unlike other cleanses, I still got to eat delicious food, instead of just starving myself! I would highly recommend this plan for anyone looking to do the same. Sonya Stichbury

Digital Marketing Exec

I decided to do the 10 Day Sugar Cleanse program because I’d just had some bad news and I wanted a little kick start.
I love that the recipes are so delicious and look amazing, like cooking from a fancy cook book! The hummus is especially delicious, as is the cashew coconut soup…and the scrambled eggs – just to name a few!
After doing the 10 Day Sugar Cleanse I’ve made a few changes to my routine which is helping. I would definitely recommend doing this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse – it’s a great program with seriously delicious recipes! Melissa White

Cake Designer/Business Owner

I’ve tried a lot of diets and weight loss meal delivery services over the years, but this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse has blown them all our of the water. It has really shown me what my body needs and what it doesn’t. I started two weeks ago and found all the information very easy to follow, as were the recipes. The meals were very filling, delicious and easy to prepare. I began sleeping better almost immediately, my skin and eyes look bright and clear, I no longer have bloating and I lost 3kg (6.6lbs)! I highly recommend this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse to anyone who is thinking about cutting sugar out of their diet. Anita Ward

Restaurant Owner

I’m a 67 year old sugarholic. I love cakes and ice cream and all things sweet, so doing this sugar cleanse was way out of my comfort zone. I had to be very positive and mindful, and surprisingly, it was not as hard as I thought.
After 10 days eating sugar free I feel really good, with more energy to chase grandchildren. I no longer crave sugary treats, and an extra bonus I lost a few kilos! I highly recommend this sugar cleanse to anyone considering it. Go for it! Jan Stichbury

You May Be Thinking…

Can I really beat sugar cravings AND see all these changes in just 10 days?

Yes! If you put the effort in and follow the program you will see results.

 

Is this just a quick fix?

Only if you treat it that way. If you take your new learnings and incorporate them into your lifestyle you will continue to see positive changes.

 

Will food be fun anymore?!

Yes! All the recipes in the 10 Day Sugar Cleanse are Swoon Food recipes which by design are easy to follow and delicious!

Who isn’t this program for?

If you’re not open to change…

This program really shakes things up. You’ll be eating lots of fresh, clean, unprocessed whole foods. You’ll be encouraged to move your body every day, improve your sleep routine, and take an honest look at what you eat and why.

If you’re not open to making changes and incorporating them into your daily life to keep the positive results flowing, this isn’t the program for you.

 

If you’re looking for someone to do the work for you…

While I would love to deliver all the meals and take all the work out of it for you, unfortunately that won’t help you in the long term!

The aim of the 10 Day Sugar Cleanse program is to teach you how to create your own healthy, sugar-free meals, and empower you to make better food choices going forward so you’ll continue to see positive changes long after the 10 days are up!

My goal is to help you get off sugar so you can become the healthiest version of you possible.

 

 

I want you to have all the tools you need to successfully get off sugar & processed foods, and see the results you desire.

 

I want to you to feel a sense of achievement from going 10 days completely sugar free, and see just how good you can feel in this short time.

 

I want you to have freedom from sugar and food cravings.

 

 

Remember:
It’s the food you put into your body that’s the most important factor for change,
and sugar is the key.

The menu plans do not restrict calories, and the food you’ll be eating is very healthy, whole foods, full of natural carbohydrates (in vegetables), good fats, protein and fibre.

This sugar cleanse program is so effective it’s possible your blood sugar and blood pressure will drop dramatically in just a few days.

There are eggs in a number of recipes in the spring/summer and autum/winter menu plans. which can either be substituted or simply choose another recipe.

If you’re still unsure, feel free to contact us and we will see if it will work for you: sugarcleanse@swoonfood.com

Will I be hungry on this cleanse?

This depends on what your diet looks like currently and what your weight goals are. This cleanse is not restrictive of calories, however, you may notice you don’t feel stuffed after meals and you begin to feel hungry again before your next meal – which is a good thing! Not overloading your digestive system gives it a chance to properly digest the food you’ve put in, which is an important healthy change.

I follow a paleo diet, can I do the cleanse?

Yes most definitely! All the recipes on this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse are completely dairy, grain and sugar free.

I'm a vegetarian, can I do the cleanse?

Yes! You have a couple of options. You could choose the Plant Based menu plan which is fully vegetarian and vegan. Or you could choose to follow the Original or Extremely Busy People menu plans, both of which are 67% vegetarian and simply substitute a vegetarian protein where necessary.

I'm a vegan, can I do the cleanse?

Yes! Out of the three menu plans, the Plant Based menu is completely vegan.

Can I do this cleanse if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding please check in with your health professional before signing up for this cleanse. The recipes in this program are very rich in nutrients and all the meals contain a balance of healthy fats, proteins, fibre, and naturally occurring carbohydrates in vegetables. However, pregnant and breastfeeding woman naturally need more calories so it may not be suitable for your needs. If you decide to do this 10 Day Sugar Cleanse you may want to consider increasing portion sizes and adding extra protein to some of the salads and smoothies.

Can I exercise or train for a marathon while on this cleanse?

Yes you can certainly exercise while on this cleanse. We encourage you to move your body daily, and ideally keep doing what you usually do. However, because this sugar cleanse will initiate a detox process in your body, we don’t recommend putting extra stress on it at the same time, such as extra hard workouts or training for a marathon.

I'm not very good at cooking, can I do the cleanse?

Yes! All the recipes are very easy to follow and prepare. If you’re not used to preparing your own meals you might find there’s quite a bit of food preparation involved, but it’s highly likely you’ll pick up some amazing new cooking skills during the process!

I cook for my partner/family, will this work?

Yes. Most of the recipes on the cleanse serve two or more, especially the dinners, so you can easily adapt them to suit your needs.

How can I get my partner, friend or family to do it with me?

Getting your partner, friend or family member to do this cleanse with you is one of the best ways to ensure success as you will be accountable to each other. The best way to convince a not so excited partner or friend to join you is to lead by example. Talk to them about why you’re going to do it, show them the success stories above, and encourage them by saying how much more fun it would be if you did it together. If they’re still not interested, go ahead with the cleanse anyway and once they see how well you’re doing they’ll likely want to join in too.

Will my grocery bill increase while doing this cleanse?

This will depend on how many ingredients you already have, how much you usually spend on your grocery bill, what brands you buy, and whether you buy in bulk. Most people say the first grocery shop is the same or slightly more than their usual shop, but the second week is much less as a lot of ingredients carry over. The most expensive things on the shopping list are nuts and seeds and their cost can be kept down by buying from bulk bins. It’s also good to keep in mind that while on the cleanse you won’t be eating out much so you’ll save money there.

Will this cleanse create additional work for me?

There’s a fair amount of food prep on this cleanse, mainly because it’s so hard to find ready made foods that meet the sugar cleanse criteria. However, I’ve tried to ensure all the recipes are relatively quick and easy to make. If you’re preparing food for your family most of the recipes, and particularly the dinners, make multiple servings so your family can eat the same food as you. Also, most of the lunches are leftover dinner so that’s one less meal you’ll need to prepare.

What happens after the ten days are up, will I lose access to the recipes?

After the ten days you’ll gain access to the final section “what to do next”. This section guides you through which foods to add back in and how. You’ll also still have access to the all the program material for 12 months so you can redo the 10 Day Sugar Cleanse as many times as you like, and continue to make your favourite recipes.
