Are you a sugar addict? No? Well, you better think twice. The truth is, sugar addiction is in deed a fact for most people living in industrialized Western societies. This type of addiction is so common that one can straightforwardly describe sugar as THE socially accepted pleasure drug.
Sugar increases the serotonin (a neurotransmitter) in your brain. The higher the level of this hormone in your bloodstream, the better you feel. That’s the reason why sugar makes you calm and happy. – And that’s also the reason why people get addicted to marijuana, cocaine and heroin!
When your blood sugar drops, your serotonin level drops, too. The body goes through a kind of withdrawal. You start feeling a little light-headed, restless and irritable. These are the same symptoms a heroin addict would show when he stops taking his drug. – Only that taking heroin is illegal and "taking" a candy bar is no problem at all.
Yet the two have quite a lot in common. While cocaine is a drug that is refined from coca leaves, sugar is a drug that is refined from sugarcane. Both of them are natural substances. But when refined, their chemical surface area is maximized thus increasing their biological activity, making them addictive.
The average American consumes about 150 pounds of sugar and related sweeteners every year. And just like the consummation of any other drug, this destroys a person's health over time. Sugar causes many degenerative diseases such as diabetes, headaches, heart disease, asthma – and of course (that's why you are here)obesity.
If you stop eating sugar, you’re drastically reducing your daily intake of calories. You will see: you will automatically lose weight even if you don’t make any other change to your diet.
