Let's face the music people, sugar is addictive. It powers us through the day when we dump it into our coffee, it makes up all of our energy drinks, it coats our cereal, it makes us fat, and actually will kill our metabolism. Sugar is addictive!
I was, and still cope with its evil charms. Whether its sugar or corn syrup it controlled me. I had gone whole days in college having not drunk anything but soft drinks. I loved sweets and sweet foods... constantly... Luckily for me however, I am still young and have made a radical choice to stop letting sugar control me and dictate my health throughout my life. Studies today are linking sugar to diabetes development and other diseases that we consider to be devastating. But we continue to consume it because we are addicted!
Did you know there are other flavors in the world besides sweet?
There is a great diversity of foods that deliver all kinds of taste and nutrition without the stimulas of sugar! Why not try some of them? It won't be easy of course! It takes a radical change, a movement, and commitment, but after about a month, you will probably not even like the taste of it anymore! Drink water, unsweetened iced teas (it is so good after you drink it more often), use natural sweeters like agave or organic honey, and if you must, try using sugar in the raw or unrefined instead of the white processed sugars.
