Got the Post-Halloween, Pre-holiday Blues? Sugar Detox to the Rescue!

Share Article

To combat post-Halloween sugar shock, CogniDiet™ is offering a four-week Sugar Detox Program to help participants get back on track to healthy eating.

This class really got behind the cognitive choices we make and why.

Chocolate bars, chewy caramels, candy corn, cool mints, hard candies, fruit chews, licorice, toffee, peanut butter goodies, fluffy marshmallow treats and more. Yes, Halloween is almost here, and sugar overload is not far behind.

For even those with unshakable willpower, Halloween presents a challenge that's often too tempting to ignore. And Halloween is just the start of a holiday season filled with overindulgences and their associated guilt (and unwanted extra pounds).

That's where nutritionist Veronique Cardon and the CogniDiet™ programs come in. The CogniDiet™ ( is not actually a diet; it's a Diet without a Diet©. The CogniDiet™ programs integrate three science-based methods: cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), de-stressing techniques, and healthy nutrition and exercise education.

Cardon said the CogniDiet™ 4-Week Sugar Detox Program is ideal for this time of year. It's designed to produce rapid results and rid participants of their sugar addiction by eliminating sugar and white carbohydrates from the diet.

In four weeks, participants will:

  •     Train the brain to change behaviors
  •     Understand the nature of their cravings
  •     Control their blood glucose levels
  •     Choose healthier/more satisfying alternatives

"Participants on our sugar detox program have lost between four and twelve pounds in just four weeks," said Cardon. "They not only look better, they also feel better mentally. And they feel better about themselves."

“I learned so much in four short weeks, more than simply what to eat or not eat," said Susan, 50, who participated in the sugar detox program this summer. "This class really got behind the cognitive choices we make and why. Because of you and this seminar, I am well on my way to ending a nearly forty-year battle I’ve had with good food versus bad food, crazy dieting and poor body image. All this in four short weeks! 'Thank you' just doesn’t seem adequate enough.”

New classes will begin early November at the CogniDiet™ office, at The Princeton Integrative Health Center, 614 Executive Drive, Princeton, NJ. Participants can attend the sessions that best fit their schedules:

  • Saturdays at 11 a.m. ET, starting Nov. 1

-Thursdays at 5 p.m., starting Nov. 6

  • Fridays at 10 a.m or noon, starting Nov. 7
