SUGAR #6: SUGAR ADDICTION – Eating sweets, candies, cakes and pastries can be an addiction if you eat sweets to improve your mood or to deal with everyday stresses. Sugar that you eat raises blood sugar and stimulates the pancreas to release insulin. Insulin stimulates the same reward center that is activated in alcohol or drug addiction. Insulin then lowers blood sugar which can lead to fatigue and a craving for more sugary foods. To get out of this cycle have a Protein-Rich Shake for breakfast along with fruits and vegetables and eat low sugar foods through the day. Every time you have a sugary food, you will stimulate both insulin and Dopamine leading to cravings for sweets which is why eating low sugar foods is so important!
