Research Proves Sugar Is Addictive
(OrganicJar) A study using rats offers scientific proof for what many dieters already know: Sugar is addictive. The research showed binging on sugar can act on the brain in ways very similar to a drug abuse. It can produced behavioral and even neurochemical changes that resembled the changes produced when animals or people take substances of abuse.

In one experiment, the rats were denied sugar for several weeks. When they were allowed to have sugar again, they consumed more of it than before. This suggests that they are craving the sugar. In another experiment, alcohol was offered to the rats instead of sugar water, the sugar-fed rats drank more than a normal rat would.

Now think about this, many foods we eat on a regular basis are loaded with sugar. Sometimes you can’t even taste the sugar but it’s still in there. As delicious as sugar-laden foods may taste, the truth is sugar is just bad for your health, especially when you start to overindulge in it.

It’s no secret that obesity and weight-related illnesses are on the rise in many countries and this is directly attributed to our diets and lifestyle. Our bodies simply aren’t able to cope with such high sugar levels and this is why illnesses like diabetes are at an all time high. Cutting the excess sugar out of your diet is one of the best things you can do for your body.

  1. I have embarked on a mini-mission to not consume any artificial sugar for the next 30 days. The only sugar I will take is from fruits.

  2. That is great! I don’t eat much sugar either, but I do eat tons of fruit. I love goji berries!

  3. Down with the “Industrial Food Complex”!

  4. I agree down with the “Industrial Food Complex”!

  5. I love sugar, absolutely love it. I certainly won’t be making any effort to cut it out of my diet, no way, mmmmmmm, sugary.

  6. Unfortunately for those already addicted, simply stopping consumption isn’t that easy. There is a program developed to help those sensitive to sugar get off it, and stay off it. And it’s not something you have to spend money on either, other than changing your food buying habits. See http://www.radiantrecovery.com.

  7. I have been concerned about sugar also. I found this website with a product that is supposed to be better than sugar or fake sugar. http://www.justlikesugarinc.com/
    Has anyone tried it?
