With sugar season fast approaching – mom’s contact me to learn how to ration your kid’s Halloween haul – while trying to maintain the sweet spirt, I feel it's my nutritional obligation and oath to give you the dish on sugar.
The facts on the ravages of sugar are enough to send us all to rehab:
There is scientific evidence that shows over-consumption of sugar activates the same areas of the brain that stimulate drug addicts to crave cocaine.
The process of sugar detoxing can be pretty daunting, if not debilitating. Much like an addict coming off of alcohol consumption or drugs – coming off sugar can lead to similar after affects such as headaches, mood swings, uncontrollable cravings and hormonal shifts. What can you expect if Americans on average are consuming 23 teaspoons of added sugars per day?
Believe it or not, the key to beating the Sugar Monster is in the gut. New research further demonstrates that when your immune system is strong, you are better able to resist the urge to splurge on sugar. If you think about your gut as the stronghold for your immune system, it only makes sense that fortifying your gut with nutrient-dense, low-sugar foods builds a fortress to keep out the sugar invaders.
