Sugar is really tasty isn't it? The feeling of anxiety relief, comfort, satisfaction that comes afterwards is delightful too right?!
Have you every noticed depression, cravings, grouchiness, and general dissatisfaction after those pleasant feelings? They're there even if you haven't ever attributed them to your sugar consumption.
Sugar acts on the dopamine receptors in your brain which is the same thing that happens when someone uses drugs. It's a reward system your brain uses to make you repeat behaviors. The trick is, just like drugs, sugar is also bad for you. Over time you need a bigger hit for the same high. Then you'll start to notice negative consequences from eating too much sugar (or people will point them out to you) and you'll ignore the warnings because you don't want to give up the sugar. Addiction is the physical inability to stop consuming something despite negative consequences.
Do you continue to eat highly processed, sugar, unhealthy foods despite negative consequences?
