Sugar - we eat a lot more than we think. How? - It's hidden in our food. Many food manufacturers add sugar to help “cut back” on calories. However, most sugars aren't natural to our diet. It sends our livers in to overdrive as the sugar is metabolized into fat.
| Sugar has also been linked to compulsive eating. This highly refined ingredient breaks down quickly, offering immediate reward to the pleasure seeking centers of the brain. You - you like sugar. I do too. But over induging isn't entirely our fault - scientifically speaking, sugar is more addictive than cocaine. |
