The Truth About Sugar

What are the health benefits of sugar? Answer: Nothing really except empty calories. It is also highly addictive. When we eat sugar, Dopamine (our brain’s “feel good” chemical) is released. This creates a “high” like a drug response. The more sugar we eat, the more our bodies will crave it. Studies have shown that sugar is about as addicting as cocaine!

It’s Everywhere Sugar is in most of our foods, not just expected ones like sweets and pop. The next chance you get, check the sugar contents on your food. A healthy sugar intake for most adults is about 30g per day; yet most people consume over twice that amount. (One can of pop has about 39 grams of sugar!)
