“The more you consume, the more sugar your body wants, creating a cycle that is hard to break“
Would you consider having a sweet tooth an addiction? For those who don’t have diets high in sugar it can be hard to understand why it can be so challenging for others to eliminate soda, candy, and other sweets.
Sugar or glucose also includes, fructose (fruit), lactose (milk), sucrose (table sugar), maltose (honey), jam, maple syrup, corn syrup, and palm sugar. With obesity on the rise, it is important to know how sugar contributes to weight gain and also its link to cancer and other health concerns. According to researchers at the University of California, sugar poses a health risk and contributes to around 35 million deaths globally each year. Refined sugar like candy and soda is now considered to be a potentially toxic substance like alcohol and tobacco. And this is verified by NPR based on about 15000 studies about sugar’s effects on weight gain.
Why Sugar Is Harmful

Sugar affects the feel good or pleasure levels that happen from dopamine being released in the body. These large amounts of sugar cause the blood sugar levels in the body to spike.
The body is trapped in a cycle of increased appetite and cravings. There are many dangers to a diet high in sugar including weight gain, tooth decay, high cholesterol, and type 2 diabetes.
Cancer loves sugar. Like really loves it. If you or someone you love is recovering from cancer, eliminating refined sugar andestablishing a diet rich in whole foods can be a critical component in recovery. Many doctors will recommend ketogenic diets to their patients diagnosed with cancer because it starves the cancer cells by the lack of glucose.
Likewise, Candida or “yeast” also feeds on sugar. Candida is one of the most common infections people have and it is an unfriendly bacteria that takes over your digestive system and produces toxins. Diet is the best defense against Candida. Avoid or limit: refined sugar, wheat, dairy products, and alcohol.
Eat the food that doesn’t contain a lot of sugar in it, those that break you through your sugar cravings.
