Multiple studies have shown the dangerous links between sugar and weight gain, increased blood pressure, higher risk for diabetes, heart disease and cancer. Most alarming is the lack of awareness of the actual addiction that forms when you continuously consume high amounts of sugar in your day to day eating. Just like any addiction, removing the toxin, in this case sugar, is key. Of coarse that is easier said then done. Over time your body has adapted to your original eating patterns and will fight to keep your hormones and metabolism in that balance. So initially removing the sugar will shock your system and unfortunately, in most cases, cause withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
One of the best ways to remove sugar is the Ketogenic or Keto diet. The book, “BodyReboot: Ignite Your Metabolism, Quickly Burn Fat & Eat Your Way To Health” fully explains the Keto diet and the science behind what exactly happens chemically and physically to the body and mind when beginning this change in lifestyle.
Science shows that your body very much does react to sugar and carbohydrates like it does to mind- altering drugs. It releases hormones and adapts brain chemistry in response to consuming (or withdrawing from) carbs and sugar. Then when you give in during withdrawal, it will flood your bloodstream with dopamine (a powerful pleasure and reward neurochemical) and make you temporarily feel great you when you comply.
Realize that this is what you’re fighting when you begin to feel cravings to snack or a desire to give in and have some sweets. Also realize that as you get through it, the cravings will get less and less. They’ll eventually go away. Not only that, you’ll feel much better and begin shedding weight very quickly once you’ve overcome your addiction to carbs and sugar.
