Sugar Detox- Day 18!

2 Comments 19 May 2011


Hello Sugar Detoxers!

How are you doing? Today is Day 18 on our Sugar Detox. Is it getting hard for you to keep up this regimen of eliminating refined sugars? I’m sure that it is! It’s so unfortunate for us that the USDA named sugar as the number 1 food additive. It’s added to pizza, hot dogs, boxed rice, soup, crackers, flavored yogurts… We simply cannot get away from the substance that literally destroys lives. I know that is a bold statement to make- but it is a fact that becomes more clear as time passes. Newspapers and magazines   are making headlines on articles about sugar.  If we all know how bad sugar is for our health, don’t  you think that the American government would know this also? Wouldn’t it be amazing if the government put a ban on sodas and soft drinks. I know I am sounding idealistic and unrealistic, but before any reality there is always a dream. So lets keep dreaming!  How wonderful would it be if we no longer have to witness our children downing a can of Coke? It breaks my heart to know that going to a children’s birthday party means coming home with a candy bag that can basically feed the whole block.

As many times as we discuss the negative effects of sugar I can’t stress enough that this is real. This is an epidemic that is affecting America, yet we still allow it in our homes.

Let’s do an awareness experiment. Go into your food pantry and see how many items have sugar or white flour in the ingredients. It’s mind boggling how we bring this drug into our homes and actually serve it as food. My suggestion is to fill the fridge with the best high quality fruits and vegetables. Always have a platter cut and ready to eat, so when you or a family member is ready to munch- its there for you -ready to eat!

I know Sugar Detox is pushing the comfort level for many people. Honestly- its asking a lot from me! We are surrounded by sugar laden foods almost everyday  and are constantly troubled with trying to stay away from sugar.

Let’s create power in numbers! Let’s make a deal- if you stay away from all your sugar favorites, then I’ll stay away from my favorites! Let’s make this coming week, the best week that we can. If you cave in- don’t worry! Just get back on track right now. Eat whole foods and I know you will feel great, look awesome and help your health and wellness in its most natural way.

Hi Detoxers,

The greatest part about being on the challenge is  changing the way you are eating, and looking to make long lasting changes for the betterment of their health and wellness. Who knows how this is going to snowball. There is a ripple effect whenever someone is on to something big- and ridding sugar from your diet is BIG!

All I can say is “Hooray to US!”

A major part of the success of this challenge is your “e-mail buddy”.

I’m still pairing people up, so send me a note if you need help!

I’m  receiving such exciting feedback  on how  women on the Detox are beginning to gain awareness of what foods are being put in their bodies. More awareness than ever before!
For instance, a bite of “this” and taste of “that,” – usually the thought was, oh, its only a little piece of cookie…cake..etc..
Most people never realized the hidden sugars that are found in many foods like breads, dressings and white rice sushi.

Here is the question of the day:

Can I use cane juice or cane fiber? How about honey?

One hundred grams of dried cane juice is pretty much the same thing as 100 grams of other sweeteners, no matter what you call it. Dehydrated cane juice is sugar. It simply sounds like a whole food.”

Every commonly used sweetener is as bad as sugar when it makes up a significant part of the diet.

Albeit, evaporated cane juice does not undergo the same degree of processing that refined sugar does.
It’s benefits is that it does retain trace vitamins and minerals.
Cane juice has the same amount of calories as sugar but since its  sweeter, you might get away of using less of it than sugar-which is always good!

There are mixed reviews about whether honey is better than sugar. It depends on the individuals health and condition. Consider: Honey is a sweet, thick  fluid made by honey bees from the nectar of flowering plants. Honey is sweeter than sugar ( almost 100% sucrose), has more calories than sugar and raises the blood sugar even more than white sugar. The plus side is that  raw honey reportedly has medicinal benefits and contains enzymes and small amounts of minerals and B-complex vitamins.

Whether you’re talking about cane sugar, honey, barley malt or sucanat , they’re all primarily simple sugars, simple carbohydrates.
People should understand that, if they’re eating 150 pounds of sugar a year and you change that to 150 pounds of barley malt, you’ll have the same problems with your immune system and blood sugar levels you would have if you are eating the sugar.

The bottom line is- use these sweetener substitutes sparingly!

From my own experience, I  use as much “real” food  sweeteners as possibly. Eating a sweet potato  is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth. If someone told me that last year, I would of thought they were crazy. A sweet potato vs. Oreos? No way!  I can assure you, its works. If you are new to detoxing from sugar it will take some time to retrain your taste buds. When you can start tasting the sweetness of a carrot or even the sweetness in brown rice, thats when you know you’ve got it.

Until then, use sweeteners such as Agave, Stevia, honeycomb raw honey,-use it sparingly and if needed. Notice how you may need  a certain amount of sweeteners on week 1, and less of it by week 4 and so on.

Here is  typical food plan on a Sugar Detox:

Breakfast- steel cut oatmeal with greek plain yogurt and berries.

Lunch- Ezekiel wrap bread with black beans and brown rice, chumus

Dinner- vegetable soup, tossed salad, olive oil and lemon dressing topped with fish (or protein of your choice)

2 snacks per day if needed, examples-  apple with some walnuts, seasonal fruits, carrots.., yogurt with fruit

Comment below on with your progress!!

Please Note: This is a general guide on how to eat more healthy food and omit processed and refined flours and sugars.

It does not take the place of private counseling. My goal on this site is to bring awareness to eating in a healthy and balanced way; to lose weight, feel great and ward off diseases that so many Americans are faced with.

Good News!

I am offering a free health history evaluation in person, or by phone for those who are interested in receiving individualized recommendations and nutrition advise based on your goals.

Its my pleasure to help you!

Prepare For Your Sugar Detox Today!

Hello Sugar Detoxers!

Please SIGN UP now to receive your free daily sugar detox newsletter!

Can you go a day…. a week ….. or how about a month without eating sugar?

I did it and so can you!

As the Passover holidays culminate, we, as Jewish women are ready to give back to ourselves by focusing in on what our bodies need right now. So, if you have been thinking about making an empowering life changing event to improve your health and well being- then this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge” is for you.  Join me with hundreds of women to take control of their bodies, this Monday May 2, 2011  as we will begin our “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.”

Americans are faced with all kinds of addictions- and sugar is at the top of the list. The worst part about it, is that sugar is an addiction that usually begins as a child and can last a life time.

Through that time period, the sugar consumers are faced with  the #1 health challenge -which is to simply stop eating sugar!
I know the Jewish women WANT to rid sugar from there lives, but not everyone has the courage to do so.
Here is a little help to kick this habit- who knows- it might even be for good!
Monday May 2, is our start date to kick the Sugar Addiction for a 30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.


Sunday May 1st (my birthday) is preparation day.

This is the day to tell all your friends and family. Everyone can be included!
Proper planning is the key to success.
So let’s begin:
#1. You will need a Sugar Detox Buddy.
This is the person who you will speak or e mail  on daily basis, for support, questions or just to help you through a hard day.
#2. Go over your pantry and start reading ingredients. If the ingredients are:
Sugar, High fructose corn syrup,  brown sugar, cystallized sugar, fructose, maltose, sorbitol,evaporated cane juice,syrups, xylotol or anything ending in “ose”- than that food  is not for you!
There are many names for sugar- if your not sure- simply google it- ask your support buddy- or ask me!
#3. Be aware for hidden sugars as in; mayonnaise, ketchup, salad dressings, sauces, corn flake crumbs,marinades and fat free foods.
These foods almost always are filled with sugar.
#4. Alternative sweetness to use:

  1. Stevia – zero calories(make sure its 100% Stevia)
  2. Agave (60 cal per teaspoon)
  3. Raw Honey-(More Medicinal)

#5.  If there are certain  foods that  are a temptation to you (like home baked chocolate chip cookies are for me) throw it in the garbage…give it to your house keeper…sell it on ebay…….just get it out of your house!
Most Important Tip:
#6 Mentally prepare yourself. If you want to succeed-you need to believe that you can do this!
Remember: “The most important things said- are the things you say to yourself”

Day 1 on Sari’s Sugar Detox

Hello Sugar Detoxers,

I know everyone is so excited to get started!  Yesterday,  was preparation day, and everyone sent emails, questions, and had lots of anxiety.  Don’t worry- everyone comes out a winner on this challenge. even if your nervous and unsure, I guarantee you will absolutely feel different about the way you view sugar when this challenge is over.

Did you tell your family and friends? The beauty of this plan is that everyone in the family can be on the same page. I don’t promote pills, drops or anything that you will not be able to withstand for a lifetime. Isn’t that refreshing?

I know everyone is looking forward to feeling great, especially as the warm weather sets in and the feel of summer approaches, but first, I must dive back to the past for a few  moments.

The past:

I  know Passover is behind us, but since Jewish women, meals and holidays are all intertwined into one package, its important to keep our eating experience close to the the forefront of our lives  in order to achieve  maximum health and wellness. Jewish women know, that  when one holiday ends…another is sure to come real soon with big festive meals to try to sabotage our diets!!

With that in mind, I must devulge  a couple of dark secrets before we are able to have this Sugar Detox relationship. Firstly, you must know that I am not perfect, and it is not my intention for you to believe that I am, further more,  I don’t expect you to be perfect either. We all do our best under the circumstances that we are dealt with.

Lets go over my first imperfection- when it is holiday time and I am sharing a fabulous meal with beloved my friends and family, I  indulge on sweets that make me feel horrible!

Do I know and fully believe that sugar is toxic? Yes! Do I know and fully believe that I am going to gain unwanted pounds? Yes!…and that I’m going to feel groggy and lethargic the next day? You know my answer!  When I feel horrible- my passion for eating healthy gets validated. The trick is to keep those indulgences to a minimum.

Just a few years ago  I wasn’t able to last a day without eating sugar. I  slowly graduated to keeping sugar free for a week…then a month and so on. I remember feeling ecstatic when a Sugar Free lifestle became “normal” for me, as it will for you too! Even if you are eating sugar all day long- you can change!

As time went on, I kept a sugar free diet for longer and longer periods- but when holidays came along- I indulged again. Looking back on the Passover Feasts, it really wasn’t worth it. Was yours?  Chocolate Leaf cookies made out of potatoes are really gross, as are fake brownies,  but I ate it anyway. It must be the act of eating with my family around the table for hours that’s appealing to me, because the desserts really aren’t! Anyone with me on this?

My personal goals are to eat cleaner during the Jewish holidays. I just came up with a great idea- lets work on it together! I”m sure there are many Jewish Hostesses  who have the same pitfalls as me. Don’t be shy- share your views, we can all help each other.

Lets move on to the topic at hand!

What should you eat on Saris Detox 30 Day Challenge?

Before I spell it out for you- you are going to be so happy to know, that this is going to be the easiest food plan you will ever go on. Its a food plan that your whole family can enjoy. The best part is, everything is natural  and focuses on whole foods, which promotes healthy bodies and minds.

I like to break down the sugar detox into two groups, you can decide which group is best for you;

Group A: If you have never done a Sugar Detox before, feel addicted to sugar, or you simply eat sugar or refined white four or rice at most meals. If this is you, then your plan for this month should be simply  to avoid eating refined sugars and refined white flour. (check list from yesterdays post for names of sugars)

Group B: If you are used to eating a Sugar Free diet, then this can be your time to try to incorporate organic foods, add more raw veggies, and eat less meat.

Whichever group is for you- everyone can benefit from eating a Sugar Free diet.

Food List:

  • every  fruit
  • every vegetable
  • every grain, whole grain breads and cereals (try Ezekiel sprouted breads and cereals)
  • every bean
  • proteins- poultry, meat, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts, seeds
  • natural almond, cashew and peanut butter
  • oils-
  • dairy- Greek plain yogurt is best,
  • choose  organic milk or original almond milk
  • see… i told you it was easy! (there are lots of great recipes on this site)

What to avoid:

  • white flour breads, bagels, muffins,
  • processed cereals with added sugars
  • fruit juices
  • sodas
  • diet soda
  • splenda
  • equal
  • sweet and low
  • cookies, cake
  • ice cream
  • candy
  • well…..it wont always be easy….

Remember…we are not putting a morsel of Sugar or white flour in our mouths for 30 days starting today!

Use your Sugar Detox partner for support.

I will continually give you tips and guide you through this.Share your experience on The Jewish Hostess- we all want to know how you are doing!

I know you are going to feel  happier, healthier and more energetic. Don’t take my word for it- try it yourself!

A motto that I live by:  “ JUST SAY YES, AND THEN FIGURE IT OUT”( I learned this trait from my mother)

Here is a great recipe to get started!

Very-Berry Omelet and Avocado Toast

  1. whisk 1 organic egg and 2 egg whites together with a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir in 1 cup mixed berries.
  2. Spray a saute’ pan with cooking spray. set heat to medium high. Pour egg mixture into pan, and cook, folding continuously, until eggs are no longer runny.
  3. Meanwhile, toast 1 slice of whole grain bread and spread 1/4 medium avocado, mashed.
  4. Garnish omelet with 3 chopped mint leaves and serve with toast.

Day 8 of Detoxing!

Day 8 of Detoxing!

No Comments 16 April 2010

Hi Detoxers!

We made it thru a week Sugar Free!
Are you starting to feel lighter? Maybe have a little bit more energy?

Some notes: resist the urge to weigh yourself! Weighing yourself misses the point on where we are going with this. I know many of us want to shed pounds, but if we rely on the numbers of the scale to dictate to us how we should feel-we then will not be able to learn how to be in tune with how our bodies feel. Some days we wake up feeling awesome, energetic.  We may feel like we for sure dropped 2lbs. though the scale says we gained a half a pound. Our emotions then go up and down. There is enough stress in our lives that can send our emotions on a roller coaster. Its best not to self inflict it.
As a group, we weighed ourselves on Day 1 of Sugar Detox. We will weigh ourselves again on Day 30.
Let’s take a group promise to stay off the scale.
Say:” I will not weigh myself until Day 30 of the Challenge”

I hope you benefited from last nights e mail. Last April, I learned that my sugar addiction was a true addiction and not about a lack of will power. That’s what gave me the DESIRE to kick the habit.

Can you send me YOUR personal stories? We would all love to read some. When you send me an email please include if you allow me to reprint it and how I should sign it, your name or anonymous.

Below is a comment from our first brave sharer!

“As a person who suffers from migraine and tension headaches often, I’m happy to report that for 8 days I have not had any headaches! I’m actually shocked and amazed at myself, how I’m even doing it.
I am (hopefully was) totally addicted and fully dependent on sugar, sugar substitutes and anything sweet.
Nothing was ever too sweet for me. When my kids would put something down and not eat it bc they said it was too sweet for them, I picked it up and ate it. I’m laughing at my breakfast this morning (oatmeal with strawberries and blueberry with a spoon of agave).
In my usual oatmeal, I would put 2 sweet n lows, brown sugar and pancake syrup! It sounds gross, but it really wasn’t too sweet for me. I hope to continue to be strong, and not have these cravings and desires anymore.
Sari- i was asking you on the holidays, “so if you can’t eat this, and you can’t eat that then, what can you eat?.”
I’m eating, and I’m satisfied, and I’m full…I just hope I lose weight with this :)

P.S. I made a huge batch of rice krispie treats for shabbat. And I did not have even one crumb of it! Its one of my many sweet favorites…I’m very proud!” Olga Schweky

Thank you Olga!

How was your Day 6 and 7?

How was your Day 6 and 7?

No Comments 14 April 2010

I’m usually a day behind in sending my Newsletter. Today is actally Day 7!

Wow, already a week! if you had some bumps in road- don’t worry! Everyday is a learning experience. I try hard to send out the answers to your questions as fast as I can. Though I like to fully research the issues properly to give the most accurate answer.

To me, a sugar detox means no white flour, rice or pasta. No artificial sweatners. Extremely limited processed foods such as muffins, bread and pasta. Natural sweeteners used VERY sparingly.
The focus is on whole foods. Foods that are usually in the first isle and last isle at the supermarket.

You may be starting to feel your sugar withdrawals now.  This is when you will be needing your “Detox Buddies” the most!

Let’s talk about these withdrawals.  How and why do they happen? Knowledge is power. This knowledge will help you through your most difficult days.

Here’s the science of it-

(A response to another detoxer who noticed she was getting severe headaches…)

Sugar is highly addictive, just like any other addictive substance, like cocaine, marijuana, caffeine, and tobacco. Your brain is comprised of nerves (neurons) and at the end of those neurons are tiny bulbs called receptors. These receptors take in the chemicals that you intake and that the brain makes. The brain creates appropriate responses to those chemicals. For example, exercising produces endorphins in the brain. As a result, these chemicals cause the person to be more relaxed, happier, and with a lower risk of depression. Different chemicals  cause different changes in the mental and physical state. Here’s a sugar  example-

You eat sugar and the brain recognizes that. Its receptors wake up to receive the sugar. And if there is too much sugar (and too little receptors) the brain won’t let it go to waste! It actually creates new receptors to accommodate all the sugar. Tiny receptors spring up where needed to absorb all the sugar chemicals floating around the brain. So right now, our brains have been accommodating all the sugar that we intake by building all these new receptors.

Here is where headaches and other withdrawal symptoms (like tiredness, nausea, and irritability) come in–
Its a withdrawal symptom. Those receptors in ur brain are used to getting its daily does of sugar. So when you reduce your intake of sugar, after a certain amt of time, the receptors die out. And that’s the pain you are feeling. Its a withdrawal symptom, just like any other addictive substance has. You have built up tolerance to sugar and your brain has become so used to it. So you perceive pain when its not available for the receptors in your brain.
Now that you understand where its coming from- you might need to pop a few advils for a few days to numb the pain but remember—- you only have to go thru this once. Let those receptors die out and never give them enough sugar to rebuild!

If you are having headaches, and other withdrawal symptoms,
eat sugar stabilising foods (like almonds and oatmeal)

To my “Detox Buddies,”
Day 6 and 7 were super. I’m lucky that I’m not going thru these withdrawal symponts this year because I’ve been off high doses of sugar for a while. I did go thru them last April when I did the Detox.
My mind is relaxed, a natural way of eating is setting over me.

Passovers’ meals are behind us- now to get them off my behind! Body is feeling real good, especially since I instructed a Smartbell class. That always does the trick!

Till next time!

4 Comments 07 April 2010

Can you go a day…. a week ….. or how about a month without eating sugar?
I did it and so can you!

As the Passover holidays culminate, we, as Jewish women are ready to give back to ourselves by focusing in on what our bodies need right now. So, if you have been thinking about making an empowering life changing event to improve your health and well being- then this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge” is for you.  Join me with hundreds of women to take control of their bodies, this Thursday, April 8th  as we will begin our “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge.”

Your participation:
A. Comment below with your thoughts and share with all our “detoxers”  at TheJewishHostess.com.
B. Have an e-mail buddy to report to on a daily basis.  Everyday send to your supporter

> if you were or weren’t successful on that given day
> why you were or weren’t
> how your mind and body feels

Example… Hi Susie, this is Sari. I was successful on the first day of my challenge. I had all my meals prepared from the morning , which helped me to be successful thru out the day. My mind feels strong and determined! My body still feels bloated from the holiday. Speak to you tomorrow!

C. Weigh yourself Thursday morning April 8, and resist the temptation to weigh yourself until May 8. While weight loss is a give in, I want to draw our focus to health and wellness and not to the numbers on the scale.
D. Incorporate clean healthy balanced meals by using all the food groups such as protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, and “good for you” fats.
E. Join me and all of our “Sugar Detoxers” on Friday morning, May 7th from 10-12   for a morning to celebrate our accomplishments with a free inspiring class experience.  RSVP….ASAP! (regardless of your ability to finish the challenge, everyone will be a winner!) (Brooklyn, NY area)

My participation:

A. I will be doing this challenge with you.
B. I will share with you my own sugar expireinces –positve and negative!
C. I will send sugar facts and tips to help you be as successful as you possibly can.

My mission for this “30 Day Sugar Detox Challenge”

TO LIVE A LIFE YOU LOVE IN A BODY YOU LOVE, by a heightened awareness of the foods we put into our bodies. Realizing that “what you DESIRE you can a will ACHIEVE!”

What to do today:

A. Eliminate simple sugars completely from your diet. Read labels! Manufactures hide the name “sugar” to fool us. The most common are called fructose and corn syrup.
B. Do not restock your pantry with all the sugary foods that you simply cannot resist.
C. Load your refrigerator and pantry with all fresh unprocessed foods.
D. Visit the health food store and check out foods that you might enjoy such as cereals and oatmeal. Ask for the healthiest sweetener available such as Agave.
E. Determine what staple foods you will be eating and make sure it is sugar free.
F. Take the time to plan and prepare your meals- this is the most important step to success!

Dos and Dont’s:

-Artificial food sweeteners are a don’t! They are chemical based and is the exact opposite of the health and wellness benefits that we are striving for.
-Adding sugar to your morning coffee is acceptable only if absolutely needed. (I am so thankful that I’m not a coffee drinker!)
-Do enjoy every combination of whole foods.
-Don’t fret the small stuff- if you falter, just get back on track immediately.
-Do have sweet whole foods on hand (especially the first week) such as sweet potatoes and bananas, even dried fruit, so when a sugar temptation strikes, you will be well equipped.
-Do have regular meals everyday. (breakfast, lunch dinner and snacks.)  Having regular spaced meals is an insurance plan  that will maintain stable blood sugar levels.
– Do know that for most of us, this challenge will be at times very difficult. But, feel assured that it does get easier as every day goes by.

My Sample Menu:

8:00;-oatmeal with Greek nonfat plain yogurt and berries
(if I’m teaching a class and then working out I drink apple juice)
12:OO; post workout; a repeat of 8 am meal or hard boiled eggs and banana
3:00;walnuts, lentil soup  or sweet potato and hard boiled eggs
6:oo; salmon, brown rice, vegetables or salmon brown rice sushi and vegetables
8:oo ; almonds and fresh dates
Note that I did not include quantities. I believe that you should eat until you are satisfied. This is what I like to eat, there are hundreds of great combinations of meals that will suit your taste buds that are healthy and sugar free.

With lots of health and wellness! Xoxo Sari

Passover Coke

kosher drink recipes

Passover Coke

1 Comment 28 March 2010

Each year, Coca-Cola makes Coke with real sugar for American Jews to drink during Passover. Normal  everyday Coke contains high fructose corn syrup, an ingredient that has been getting slammed in the media, but one that is much cheaper than sugar.

There are a group of “Real Coke” enthusiasts who buy it in bulk during Passover because they want to drink Coke with no high fructose corn syrup! Some people even seek out the sugar Coke in small Mexican restaurants and grocery stores! Sugar was part of the Original Coke recipe until the 1980’s when they started slowly switching over to HFCS because it was cheaper!

Does this Coke really taste better? You can read a one blogger’s thoughts on his Coke for Passover review here.

Look for the Coke with the yellow cap; Stock up now and drink it all year!!
