Weaning myself of sugar after I realized how addicted I was initially seemed like a MASSIVE challenge.
However, I began studying foods and nutrients to understand the causes behind my addiction to sugar…including learning how processed, sugary foods actually activate our brains in the same way as drugs like cocaine and heroin.
I realized that one way to conquer sugar cravings and overcome sugar addiction was to start replacing my foods with whole versions and eliminating the processed stuff. I realized that this also helped me psychologically, because I felt like I was giving myself "the best" food I could instead of depriving myself by going on some new diet and forcing rules upon myself.
