Are you a sugar addict?

Has eating sugary and high carb foods become out of control? 

Did you know that part of the reason it’s so hard to kick the sugar habit is that over time are brains actually become addicted to the natural opioids that are triggered by sugar consumption?

Much like the classic drugs of abuse such as cocaine, alcohol and nicotine, a diet loaded with sugar can generate excessive reward signals in the brain which can override self control and lead to addiction.
The worse thing is YOU may even think you’re eating healthily, but by choosing cereals, low fat options, packaged & tinned food you are still consuming untold amounts of hidden sugar.
This constantly keeps you locked down into craving more & more, piling on the pounds & walking about in a mental sugar fog.
It’s scary stuff. 

The trick is to take things one step at a time.
