How Sweet it is ( Said Jackie Gleason)

Is sugar really addictive?

Yes it is- you crave it because it increases your dopamine in the brain, and that makes you feel good, (when the insulin  helps sugar cross into the brain)-

I recommend no more than 10 grams of sugar per serving at breakfast lunch or dinner

If what you are eating or drinking has more- it probably is too much. ( see below)

cola sugar

Other names for sugar include High fructose corn syrup, glucose, lactose, malt syrup, molasses and sucrose, and evaporated cane juice, dextrose

Kick the sugar habit and slowly replace it with protein, Protein empties slower from the stomach and will slower the absorption of sugar into the blood. Fiber or a high fiber diet also slows the absorption of sugar into the blood.
