Sugar Rated Eight Times More Than Additive Than Cocaine

 Sugar Rated Eight Times More Than Additive Than Cocaine.


Sugar is said to be eight times more addictive than cocaine. Some people are more penetrating than others, but the more sugar you eat, the more likely it has taken hold of your addictive pathways and is motivating you to eat – and drink – far too much.
When sugar hits the bloodstream, it excites the release of a brain chemical called dopamine, which makes you feel better.

SUGAR RATED EIGHT TIMES MORE ADDITIVE THAN COCAINE The feeling is usually brief. By the time you’re licking the chocolate off your fingertips or picking the last crumbs of biscuit from the plate, your dopamine levels will probably have fallen, taking you into a mini-withdrawal. 

This can prompt desires for more cubes of sugar, urging you, against your better decision, to pick up another biscuit or break off another square of chocolate so your brain can have another hit of dopamine. Before long, the biological signals that would normally control hunger and satiety (fullness) are swiftly being overwhelmed by this dopamine stimulation, to the point where your body (and brain) starts listening only to sugar’s cues and ignores the fact that you have already eaten far more than you need. If you have even the mildest addiction to sugar, there is every chance that your ‘off’ switch no longer works properly in response to eating, either. That’s why one biscuit or scoop of ice-cream never seems like enough, even after a huge meal. 

Study as it that the more sugar you consume, the more your tolerance adapts, hence you end up demanding for more and more sugar to get the same boost – drug addicts and alcoholics experience the same cycle.



Avoid Sweetners Although artificial sweeteners can confuse your system. and make it tougher to quit sugar, if you rely on them long-term (they can ‘feed’ your sweet tooth and spark sugar and carb cravings], on occasion they can make the change to a sugar-free life easier. So avoid aspartame, Splenda and Canderel, don’t touch diet drinks and only use more natural sweeteners such as stevia and xylitol. If, however, after two or three weeks on your LCHF programme, you are still feeling hungry or noticing sugar cravings, then sweeteners could be to blame, so bit by bit reduce your intake.
 Any Withdrawal Symptoms? You may experience slight physical discomfort, such as a headache, or urges for sugar and carbs, but stick with the plan – this will pass. After a few days, you should notice improved physical well- being, less bloating, a clearer head, increased energy and improved mood. 

Extracted From Sugar Free: 8 Weeks To Freedom From Sugar And Carb Addiction, by Karen Thomson. Stranger Than Fiction (Humour} A woman who had just taken a lease on a unit near the railway line rang the estate agent to complain that passing trains rocked her bed so much she was in fear of falling out of it. The agent came round. “But it’s so quiet,” he said, “I can’t believe that passing trains rock the bed”. “Shakes the living daylight out of me,” she persisted, looking at her watch. She heard a distant train whistle. “Here’s the five-thirty-five’, lie down on the bed yourself,” and she climbed on to the other side. That’s when her husband came in. “What do you think you’re doing?” he roared, glaring at the estate agent. “Would you believe waiting for a train?,” he ventured.
