Symptoms of Sugar Addiction & What To Do About It

Are You Addicted?  It is difficult to get a good view from the inside - even more so, if you are feeling foggy and sluggish. With our access to processed foods, sugary drinks, and the fact that added sugar is hiding in almost everything, a sugar addiction can be acquired quickly and unknowingly - especially if we are not paying attention. (And you are so worth the time and attention healthy requires!) I encourage you to step back, outside yourself and assess your own health. Do you struggle with any of these symptoms?
  1. Eating sugary foods past the point you intended? We eat to live, not live to eat, and when we are preoccupied with eating more and more empty calories, we are not feeding our bodies the nutrition they need.
  2. Craving simple carbohydrates?  For example: Croissants, white bread, pasta, white rice, and pastries are the most popular simple carbohydrates that sugar addicts will crave. Without sugar addiction, we do not naturally crave these items.
  3. Craving meat or salty foods?  According to Donna Gates and Linda Schatz, who wrote The Body Ecology Diet, “a healthy body always strives toward balance, too much expanding food creates a craving for contracting food, and vice versa. For example, if you eat too much salt or animal foods (meat products) you will crave sweets to make a balance.”
  4. Eating sugary foods until you don’t feel well - because who in their right mind eats until they don’t feel well? (I know we’ve all been there, and this is a good indicator of addiction)

Dr. Robert Lustig, a professor of pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco, wrote in The Atlantic that: "The brain's pleasure center, called the nucleus accumbens, is essential for our survival as a species… When you consume any substance of abuse, including sugar, the nucleus accumbens receives a dopamine signal, from which you experience pleasure. And so you consume more. The problem is that with prolonged exposure, the signal attenuates, gets weaker. So you have to consume more to get the same effect -- tolerance. And if you pull back on the substance, you go into withdrawal. Tolerance and withdrawal constitute addiction." So, what to expect? Well, depending on the severity of your addiction, you could experience any or several of the following: headaches, bloating, nausea, muscle aches, diarrhea, fatigue, hunger, anxiety, depression, cravings, chills - And this won’t last forever. Experiencing any withdrawal symptoms is an indicator: 1. Your body was struggling with an addiction, 2. You have almost beat it!
