"Thank you so much for developing your Sugar Detox program; It's honestly one of the best investments I've made for myself (and my family) in a long time. I learned so much in such a short time about nutrition and more importantly about my body. I've implemented true lifestyle improvements that are sustainable and the results have been incredible. I've experienced the exciting 'side effects' of improved body composition and weight loss and I'm also feeling more energetic and in tune with my body's real nutritional needs. Days 2 and 3 were hard - I felt like an addict coming down from a bad bender - but that was it, every day since has been easy and fun! For the first time in as long as I remember, food is finally fuel and not a toxic dependency. I'm recommending you to all of my friends and family. Don't change a thing about your program - it's absolutely perfect!"

"This Sugar Detox that January has developed is a fantastic program and probably one of the most influential programs I have ever participated in. After having a life-long addiction to carbs and sugars, it was really interesting to go two full weeks with these items eliminated from my diet. I saw immediate and remarkable results from this journey. I never looked at the scale but had an observable reduction in waistline with a full belt notch reduction in two weeks. I felt much less bloated and slimmer. Unexpectedly I also observed that my flexibility had improved and I was able to get deeper into my yoga practice. Better yet was a healthy lifestyle, spending more time cooking and enjoying my food. January I can’t thank you enough for this program and look forward to this new approach on life! I highly recommend this program!"

"I had what I thought was a pretty clean diet. As a runner, weightlifter and yogi, with a fairly clean diet, and in my mind, no sugar addiction, I really questioned how much I could get out of this program and whether or not it would even challenge me. I don’t say this lightly, not only did it challenge me, it changed my life!
Thanks to January's Sugar Detox, I realize that it’s so much more than what you look like in your jeans (and I am not knocking the desire to want to look smokin' hot in jeans)! This experience created a shift in my mindset. I am now at a heightened state of awareness with regards to what I put into my body and the effects it has on SO much of my life: my sleep, my skin, my digestion, my mood and my ability to give my best in a workout. I can no longer claim ignorance when I experience first-hand what my body feels like without a bunch of garbage in it. I feel better than I have in a long time, my mind is clearer, my body is transforming physically and I sleep better. If you’re even toying with the idea of committing to January’s Sugar Detox- DO IT. Stop thinking about it and do it."

"I so appreciate the Detox and the changes it's made for me. I went over six months with zero weight change while working out daily, not understanding why nothing was changing for me, and thinking I was eating well. Sugar Detox finally made that shift I needed and actually delivered results...both from a weight loss perspective as well as how I feel in general! I'm still eating according to the plan (with occasional treats) and truly am so happy with how I feel and the changes it's finally made for me. I'm SO happy with the results, so THANK YOU!"

"I have tried many times to curb sugar cravings on my own. And I always failed. A couple of my friends completed the January Wellness Sugar Detox. They are intelligent, smart, fit women, and I valued their opinions. Although I was frightened of another failure, I ended up joining the October team. And it has been the BEST GIFT I’ve ever given myself. January’s 2 week program taught me more about my body, its nutritional needs, metabolic reactions, and caloric efficiency, than I had ever learned before. I can’t remember the last time I slept better, felt better, and looked better than during this detox. Even my skin feels reborn.
January walks her talk. That in and of itself was inspiration enough for me. Most importantly though, she provided a structure within which I could succeed. That’s what I had been missing when I tried to quit sugar on my own. January’s structure included an incredible private group with my fellow detoxers, daily emails with fountains of information, prompt replies to all questions, ideas for recipes, tips for preparation and success, alerts for what was coming up and what was to be expected, and of course, CONSTANT encouragement, and empathy. Most importantly, the structure did NOT focus on weight loss, and I never would have joined if it had been. It is about arming us with tools needed to make the best, mindful food decisions most of the time. It is not about showing us how to live better, but how to THRIVE in our own version of our best self. Of course, the fact that I lost almost 2 inches around my waist was sweet icing (sugar free, of course) on my cake!"

"I can't say enough about January's Sugar Detox!! She opened my eyes to a way of fueling my body I never thought was possible. Besides kicking my sugar cravings, I learned the definition of truly clean eating! She was there for me every step of the way as I prepared for the biggest day of my life- my wedding! I felt my energy sky rocket through the roof and was surprised by the major changes in my body. Three weeks before my big day it took 3 people to zip my fitted wedding dress, but the day-of my mother zipped me up solo! I can honestly say I look and feel my best when I'm practicing the mindful eating January has taught me. It's a way of life that even my husband has embraced! Phat for life!"

"This Sugar Detox has been a life changer for me. I never felt like I was denying my body needed nutrients. The recipes and food suggestions provided me with a wide array of menu plans, and for someone who hates cooking, it made me think more thoughtfully about what I'm putting into my body. Gone are my digestive issues and weird cravings. Instead, I find I have way more energy. I get more oomph out of my workouts. I'm sleeping better. I've leaned out, which wasn't the reason I started this, but it's a nice perk! I truly appreciated the support from the other detox participants. Of course, January was there every step of the way giving us much needed support, ideas, articles, and encouragement during and long after the two week program is up."

"Day 23 without sugar... I feel so much more calm during the day. I get horrible anxiety sometimes, and have even considered medication... but since I have cut out the sugar, I am managing it a lot better. Just this calm, steady peaceful energy that feels so steady. My level of pain is considerable lower... My job is so physical and my feet and legs often hurt a lot during/after work. Now, I feel like I actually have the energy and ease in my body to go enjoy activities after my shift. I don’t feel like I’m going to yoga to “fix” my pain so much anymore as I am going to experience a class and move my body. My practice feels lighter and like how my body is looking.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know what you have developed here has helped me so much! I am so so grateful that I have this knowledge now. It is so wonderful to know that this really works for me. Even though I have come a long, long way my health and how my body feels, there was still this sort of nugget in my mind that told me I had to suffer to be “good”. I don’t believe that at all anymore. Suffering, being hungry, cranky, does not equal higher health. So thank you for helping me learn that…..again."
"I was drinking Shakelogy shakes for a little over a month and didn't know if I could go without... thought I would cheat with them, but nope - been loving eating whole foods and feel so much more full and satisfied! It's amazing that two weeks have already passed. I feel great and so happy I decided to join this group! I have more energy and feel more motivated, with that being said I was more active at the gym and made it to my yoga practice more as well during this transition. I am definetley sticking with this new lifestyle, Thank you January and fellow detoxers for helping me through this transition and new way of eating!"

"Thank you for Sugar Detox! I see results when I look in the mirror, but I just wanted to say thanks for never making this detox about losing weight. I've struggled with body image/confidence issues for years and it's easy to get sucked into those "drink this, lose 8 pounds in a week!" crazes. Your sugar detox was difficult, but awesome. I was eating a ton and looking leaner. And my skin was incredible which never happens! I want people to know that they can look and feel great without doing an intense cleanse. They can eat bacon woo!!"
- Kaitlin - Yoga Instructor
"Thank you again for introducing me to completely transformative and wonderful lifestyle! I feel honored to be l part of this process and am tickled pink at how amazing I feel! Doing this detox again has given me so much confidence to now live my life with the skills and tools you have given me. Here's to bacon and egg yolks, energy and vitality, good sleep and good sex ;)...all from a 2 week adventure!"

"What a difference I'm experiencing. Day 1 was filled with intrigue, "ok, let's see what this is all about and give it a try," you know, the newness of it. Day 2 was challenging as I could not stop yawning and well, as my wife would say, had to wait for my behind to catch up with me since it was dragging a ways back. Day 4 I noticed the bloating was gone and it was getting easier to fall asleep. Woke up day 5 and the sluggishness was gone, sprung out of bed and had a quick step about me. Making me wonder where this energy was coming from and started just feeling "clean". I'm enjoying the process of preparing, cooking and eating fresh. Love the fact that I am not feeling "Ugh, bloated, gassy, like I need to sit down and unbutton the pants to relieve the pressure." Skip to day 10 and I noticed today my jeans are just a tad bit looser on me. Looking forward to getting back into exercising, walking long distances, maybe get back in the gym and hit some weights, see what happens.
Thank you January for pointing to the light, for your guidance, your enthusiasm and just the kindness to do something that makes a difference to people for the better. I was apprehensive when my friend Rebecca posted she was making the decision to join your program and I'm only upset that I didn't do this sooner."

"Thank you so much January!!! I couldn't be more pleased with the results, and it all started with the nutrition advice you gave me. I'm so grateful for your helping me get started.
I feel so much more healthy than I did just 5 months ago. I'm amazed how much of a difference that good nutrition (and proper amounts of food) have made. I haven't been sick even once since I started eating this way.
I definitely appreciate the advice on the lower back / legs connection... my workouts are feeling stronger than ever."
