#1 It’s As Addictive as Cocaine
In fact, it might even be more addictive than cocaine. The war on drugs? Where is the war on sugar?
It’s fairly simple to imagine how this could be a problem for those affected.
An addictive substance like sugar that doesn’t have many noticeable effects can be very insidious.
So, not only will one continue to eat it without thinking that it is the culprit to their health issues, their brain will encourage them to eat it.
The ill effects of sugar consumption are then exacerbated by a steady intake. Once sugar is consumed, dopamine is released, and the user is satisfied.
Once the insulin response clears the blood of the sugar, you become ‘hungry’ again, but the hunger experienced is typically a craving for more sugar.
#2 It Prevents Your Satiety
Perhaps the reason that sugar has been dubbed the ‘White Devil’ in some circles is due to its sneakiness. When you consume foods with fructose sugar the signal normally sent to your brain to let it know that you are full is suppressed. This allows people to overeat very easily.
Fructose sugars just simply do not make you feel full. In a recent study, researchers found that while glucose made the brain feel sated, fructose did not. Even though the calories and everything else was the same.
