Sugar vs. Cocaine
Thursday, September 05, 2013
I've been listening to Spark People Radio www.sparkpeople.com/mysp
and they indicated that sugar is as addicting as cocaine. While I've never so much as smoked a cigarette, hearing those words made me think 'Whoah.'
No wonder other weight-loss programs have never worked for me, I thought. I've probably been addicted to it since I was in middle school. Sugar makes you want to eat more sugar. I don't want to eat more sugar. I want to eat less.
I've also heard that substitutes like Splenda can make you eat more, so the answer lies within staying away from sugar as much as possible. Like we're in a bad relationship and have to separate our feelings from our intuition. It may make us feel good, but in the end we know it's bad.
