We all know that once we start nibbling on a chocolate chip cookie, it's really hard to stop. What is it about sweet treats that really ropes us in?
Sugar acts like a drug in our bodies and is shown to be more addictive than cocaine. When we consume sugar, the brain’s pleasure center receives a dopamine hit and lights up. Then it wants more of where that came from. This causes us to crave sweets and overeat even though we're really full.
Unfortunately, while drugs are taboo, some form of sugar seems to be in everything we eat, and we can't seem to live without it. We're hooked and the manufacturers know, using it to their advantage, putting sugar in almost everything they sell from breakfast foods to pasta sauce. Click here to see where sugar is hiding.
Sugar is harming our physical and mental health. It leads to emotional eating, energy spikes and crashes, hormonal issues, obesity, cancers, autoimmune disease, dementia, and more.
People think cutting sugar out of their diets or at least reducing it is hard or even extreme, but it is one of the most important things that you can do for your health and wellbeing. And the easiest way to do it is with the support of a group of like minded women doing it together, cheering each other on!
