Congrats!  You’ve joined the Further Food Sugar Detox Challenge and committed to going sugar-free for seven days, and we’re going to make saying “no” to sugar a cinch. We’re arming you with an easy-to-follow, sugar-free meal plan and simple, delicious recipe ideas that you’ll want to eat again and again. Learn about our NEW 10 Day Sugar Detox Plan here. 

For 2018, we’ve made our 7-day meal plans better than ever, with all new easy to make recipes. Got special dietary restrictions? We’ve got you covered! We have 2 meal-plan options: one meal plan is geared towards the paleo and meat lovers and the other meal plan is for vegetarians (noted as meal plan 2(V) in the meal plan below). BOTH are gluten-free. They are meant to inspire and guide you, but you can find easy recipe substitutions in our recipe database that can be searched by over 30 dietary restrictions. Be prepared for the first two or three days to be a challenge. You will experience cravings, but don’t give up. By Day 4 you’re going to feel more energized and balanced.

Don’t feel the need to follow this meal plan to a T. We know you’re busy. So when you’re not cooking, just be smart in buying no-sugar options. See our infographic of YES and NO foods to guide you, and if you have questions, leave a comment below and one of our experts will answer.

Further Food 10 Day Sugar Detox

Several recipes in these meal plans include Collagen Protein as an ingredient. As a veteran sugar detox health coach, Julie Fischer, puts it: “I’m so pleased to have finally found a clean protein powder to recommend to my sugar detox clients. Further Food Collagen is all natural, grassfed, paleo, free of gluten, dairy, sugar and soy, and dissolves completely with no gritty taste. It’s a welcome addition to my morning routine!”   Collagen protein powder will also keep you 40% more satiated than whey or soy protein, helping keep you full and curb sugar cravings. Learn more here. However, collagen is an optional ingredient, so feel free to leave it out.

The secret to this meal plan? Weekend meal prep! We’ve selected a list of recipes to prepare in advance to make it easy to eat healthy and sugar-free during your busy work-week. Each dish is nutritious, scrumptious and most importantly, sugar free. Eat ‘em up and enjoy!

FAQs

What is a sugar detox?

A sugar detox is a commitment where you say no to sugar! That means cutting sugar out of your meals and snacks and desserts. This may seem impossible, but it is the best way to curb your sugar cravings and live a healthier lifestyle. Further Food Sugar Detox Challenge (7 days or 10-Day Detox) is an easy-to-follow, sugar-free meal plan that gives you all sorts of delicious recipes to use as you continue your sugar-free living. There is a paleo and meat lover plan and a vegetarian plan!

Why add Collagen Protein into your sugar detox plan?

Adding a natural collagen protein powder into your sugar detox plan like Further Food Collagen will keep you 40% more satiated than whey or soy protein. This in itself can help you maintain your fullness and curb those pesky sugar cravings, making the sugar detox just a little bit easier.  Make sure that the collage is natural, grass-fed, and free of additives so that you can reap the most benefits!

What should I do for weekend meal prep?

Time management is important for successfully following any sugar detox plan. To make it easier for you, try to do a lot of weekend meal prepping!  Sunday may be the perfect day for putting together your anti-inflammatory soup, protein bars, gluten-free hummus dip, and sliced vegetables. Prep snacks ahead of time so that when you’re feeling peckish during the week you already have a healthy snack ready for you.

Founder's story:

"My father had just been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, my mom was
managing her hypothyroid, and my best friend was struggling with painful IBS.
I went online to search for food-based and natural solutions that could help
them heal. But what I found was scattered, disorganized, and left me more confused. I thought, ‘There must be an easier way to discover solutions for various ailments from real experts and from people who had done it themselves. So I decided to build a resource—a platform for food as medicine solutions
for all your health needs. And I decided to take the wisdom from this community to create real food based products that heal.

    Do you have a daily calorie estimate?
    Also is this possible without purchasing the tumeric tonic and just using regular tumeric and spices? (UK based so too expensive and wouldn’t have it in time to start the Oct 1st challenge)
    Thanks!

      Our meal plans are not based on calories, instead we focus on eating whole foods with no added sugars. We have had thousands of detoxers that have had results with our plans. You can use regular turmeric and spices instead of the Daily Turmeric Tonic. Good luck!

      Hi Lisa: Our marine collagen is made out of fish, if that works for you. Otherwise you can use pea protein. Good luck!

    Hi a couple of questions. Could you please suggest a substitute for kale and brussell sprouts (two veggies i think taste disgusting). Also i don’t eat meat or chicken but love fish. Is it ok to substitute the turkey for prawns in the tacos.

      Hi Christine: You can substitute spinach or any other leafy green for kale. And you can subsitute broccoli or cauliflower or any other cruciferous vegetable for Brussel sprouts. And you can substitute the turkey with prawns! Good luck!
