You don’t even need to click on these links to see that we have a big sugar problem. First of all, the science is beyond question. Sugar in all its forms is the root cause of our obesity epidemic and most of the chronic disease sucking the life out of our citizens and our economy — and, increasingly, the rest of the world. You name it, it’s caused by sugar: heart disease, cancer, dementia, type 2 diabetes, depression, and even acne, infertility and impotence.
Being addicted to sugar and flour is not an emotional eating disorder. It’s a biological disorder, driven by hormones and neurotransmitters that fuel sugar and carb cravings — leading to uncontrolled overeating. This is not a limited phenomenon. It’s the reason nearly 70 percent of Americans and 40 percent of kids are overweight.
And let’s go back to the headlines. No wonder we’re addicted to this stuff. Sugar has some big protectors in the food industry, and we are constantly being bombarded with messages that it’s safe for us to consume. Not to mention that pretty much every single packaged item in the grocery store contains some form of sugar.
The truth is that we blame people for being overweight and sick, but it’s not their fault. Our taste buds, hormones, and brain chemistry have been hijacked by the food industry.
This is why I created the 10-Day Detox Diet.
I gained a deeper understanding of the biology of food addiction and how it is so often at the root of people’s failure to change their behavior and their diet, and it is through this understanding that I created a plan to help reset your hormones and brain chemistry and turn off inflammation in just 10 days. The result is not only a significant jump-start on weight loss but also a dramatic change in health.
This super charged way to reset your biology in just 10 days addresses carbohydrate intolerance, carb and sugar addiction.
Even if you don’t identify with a sugar addiction, this program is still for you. I revisit it anytime I’m feeling off or have had a particular stressful time at work or when I’ve come back from a vacation. This program is truly for anyone who is looking for a reset.
Six hundred people did a trial of the program—they not only lost more than 4,000 pounds in 10 days and dropped blood sugar by 20 points and blood pressure by 10 points but they reduced all symptoms from all diseases by 62 percent in 10 days. There is no drug on the planet that can do that. Food is the most powerful medicine on the planet.
Since then, thousands of people have successfully completed The 10-Day Detox Diet and have rid themselves of their food addictions and lost unwanted pounds and felt better than they could have ever imagined.
Here are what some of them had to say:
“I committed to trying this Detox for 10 days. I felt so much better after 10 days that I decided to commit to 30 more days. And I just kept it up!” Cathy D.
“Following the guidelines of the 10-Day Detox eliminated my cravings and allowed me to stick with long-term weight loss. Learning about the science of our food and sugar cravings helped with sticking with it.” Vern S.
