Trying to quit sugar but you keep coming back to it? Read below and prepare to be SHOCKED!
Mark Hyman, MD has this to say about sugar "The fact is that sugar and flour are biologically addictive. The science behind it is clear and conclusive. Yet we blame the fat person for being a lazy glutton, which leads to shame and guilt. I am here to tell you it’s not your fault. Your biology has been hijacked by the food industry. They have done a hostile takeover of your taste buds, brain chemistry, hormones and metabolism. More than 300 food industry insiders spilled the beans to Michael Moss in his book, Salt, Sugar and Fat, explaining they hire “craving experts” to create the “bliss point” of junk food to create “heavy users” and increase their “stomach share.” Sugar is the new nicotine. In fact, sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine. If you are trying to use willpower to lose weight you will fail. You have to use science to unhook yourself from the addictive power of sugar, flour and hyper-processed, hyper-palatable food-like substances."
Tea cannot solve this issue alone, but it can help, a lot. Tea can provide some of the energy and good feelings that sugar gets you hooked with, and it can also provide flavors that are very pleasing so you get your mind off of the sugary foods you want to eat.
Please know that you can also be very skinny and addicted to sugar and it can make your body a breeding place for disease, because sugar is so acidic it keeps your body out of balance and strips minerals from your bones to process it.
