Here are some of my picks for the best recipes, whether you're on The Virgin Diet or the Sugar Impact Diet:

A Trio of Chocolate Shake Recipes Both diets jumpstart your results with two protein shakes a day, and chocolate is a delicious way to dive in… (Remember, quality protein is key!)

Now that you’ve got some yummy recipes to get you started right, let’s be sure you’re on the perfect program for your needs and goals…

Why You Start

People often ask me which program they should try: The Virgin Diet or The Sugar Impact Diet. The truth is, both incorporate essentials to a healthy lifestyle and both help you lose weight. (I personally follow both TVD and SID every day!)

But if you struggle with fatigue, joint pain, autoimmune conditions, gas and bloating, or skin issues –  the classic signs of food intolerance – The Virgin Diet is the place to start.

If weight gain around your belly, wicked carb cravings, emotional eating, blood sugar imbalances, and constant hunger are a problem, the Sugar Impact Diet is your go-to solution.

Either way, you’re going to see incredible results in the first seven days alone!

And while people are drawn in by the dramatic weight loss they experience, they stay on my New York Times best-selling programs after realizing the other fantastic health benefits:

  • anti-aging
  • decreasing chronic inflammation
  • healing gut issues
  • increasing mental clarity
  • boosting mood
  • clearing up skin problems
