The Participant understands that the role of the Certified 21DSD Coach is not to prescribe or assess micro- and macronutrient levels; provide health care, medical or nutrition therapy services; or to diagnose, treat or cure any disease, condition or other physical or mental ailment of the human body. Rather, the Coach is a mentor and guide who has been trained to help clients and group participants reach their own health goals by helping to devise and implement positive, sustainable lifestyle changes. The participant understands that the Coach is not acting in the capacity of a doctor, licensed dietician-nutritionist, psychologist or other licensed or registered professional, and that any advice given by the Coach is not meant to take the place of advice by these professionals. If the Participant is under the care of a health care professional or currently uses prescription medications, the Participant should discuss any dietary changes or potential dietary supplements use with his or her doctor, and should not discontinue any prescription medications without first consulting his or her doctor.
The Participant has chosen to work with the Coach and understands that the information received should not be seen as medical or nursing advice and is not meant to take the place of seeing licensed health professionals.
The program will include 4 group sessions, conducted via zoom webinar.
Session dates are subject to change at the discretion of the Certified 21DSD Coach. The Coach is not responsible for technical issues that may result in rescheduling of a session. Should the participant miss a session, due to participant absence or coach change, a recording of the session will be sent to all participants. No refunds are given for any reason due to missed sessions.

THE FOLLOWING DISCLAIMER IS REQUIRED BY DIANE SANFILIPPO, AUTHOR THE 21-DAY SUGAR DETOX / BALANCED BITES, LLC:
OUR GOAL AND HEALTH DISCLAIMER
Our primary goal, along with your 21DSD Coach’s primary goal, is to provide users with the tools and information to become responsible for their personal overall health. The 21DSD is designed with a focus on overall health improvement by nutritional modifications, but is not intended to treat, cure, or address any specific diseases or medical conditions. Always consult your primary care physician prior to starting any new health regimen, including the 21DSD. A 21DSD Coach is not licensed or trained to provide medical diagnoses, and no communication or guidance should be construed medical opinion or recommendation. The 21DSD and related coaching are only intended for use by healthy adult individuals and are not intended for use by minors, pregnant women, or anyone with an underlying health condition. Such individuals are specifically warned to seek professional medical advice prior to initiating any form of this program. If you suffer from any medical or psychological conditions, you must consult with and receive approval from your healthcare provider before working with a 21DSD Coach. It is especially important that you communicate your intent to start the 21DSD with your primary care physician if you have underlying conditions. A 21DSD Coach is not intended to be a substitute for your family physician or other appropriate healthcare provider.
If you perceive any adverse physical or emotional reactions to the program guidelines, immediately contact your 21DSD Coach to ascertain whether you should continue. Some negative side effects may occur, but generally resolve in a short period of time. None of the statements contained in the 21DSD books, website materials (including the Balanced Bites® website), or downloaded materials have been evaluated by the FDA.
Every participant is unique; therefore, it is not possible to predict how your body will react to the dietary guidelines set forth in the 21DSD. It may be necessary to adjust the program to adapt to your specific needs until your body begins to properly react to the nutritional plan. It is your responsibility to do your part by using your nutrition guidelines, exercise your body and mind sufficiently to bring your emotions into a positive balance, eat a proper diet, get plenty of rest, and learn about nutrition. Therefore, it is crucial that you remain in contact with your 21DSD Coach, so we can keep you informed and continue to provide applicable guidance. We strongly encourage that you request your primary care physician or other healthcare provider contact your 21DSD Coach for any answers to questions they may have regarding the program.
COMMITMENT BY YOU
In an effort to help you reach your goals of overall health improvement, we ask that the participants make every effort to sincerely commit to the program, potential lifestyle changes, and maintain a positive attitude to the best extent possible. While not required, this commitment will aid in the overall success of your participation.
USE OF INFORMATION
CERTIFICATION A 21DSD Coach is not necessarily licensed or certified by any state to provide nutritional advice and/or consultation. Rather, a 21DSD Coach is someone who has a demonstrated understanding of the The 21-Day Sugar Detox™, and who has received a certificate of completion as a result of their successfully passing the written exam. A license to provide general nutritional information and to coach people through The 21-Day Sugar Detox™ is not required in some states. However, 21DSD coaches are only providing guidance with respect to participation in the 21DSD program, and are not providing specific meal planning or nutritional recommendations regardless of licensing status.
PRIVACY NOTICE You acknowledge and accept that working with a 21DSD Coach and any related documents, communications, books, or materials (collectively referred to as the “Related Materials”) is an activity conducted exclusively online. As such, you acknowledge and agree to accept correspondence and communication through various websites and email addresses from your 21DSD Coach. The Company does not represent or guarantee that any of the Company’s or your 21DSD Coach’s communications/materials will be free from loss, corruption, attacks, viruses, interference, hacking, or other security intrusion, and Company disclaims any liability relating thereto. You shall be responsible for backing up your own system.
