Sugar triggers the pleasure center of the brain- like cocaine & heroine, sex, socializing, etc. Reward CRAVES reward.
Dopamine doesn’t level out with sugar or drugs, like it does with food. Overactivation > > lose control, increased tolerance to sugar!
Serotonin boosts mood. Constant overactivation depletes supply >> cranky, crave sugar, depression.
What’s a Sugar Addict to do??
The addiction cycle is tough: Binge, Withdrawal, Crave, Cross-Sensitization takes 2-3 weeks to flip the switch on sugar sugar burning to fat burning. Takes at least that long to begin dopamine signaling reversal. Be intentional & patient!
Increase: protein intake regularly, hydration, dopamine & serotonin-rich foods, good carbs, magnesium & D3, omegas, sea salt, sunshine, exercise, laughter, creativity, love, fun, stress reduction, relaxation, speak/think LIFE!
