What’s in it for me? Learn how to tame your sugar cravings.
Our bodies need energy. And within our bodies, sugar is converted into potential energy. Hence, our bodies need sugar – and since most of us like sugar so much, it would seem a perfect match! So, why not grab another Snickers bar or drink a Red Bull to boost your energy?
Well, you’re probably aware that the energy boosts provided by sugar are rather short-lived, and that a diet high in sugar is terrible for your body and overall health; it can even cause chronic illness. What’s more, it’s likely that you’re actually addicted to sugar without being aware of it. It’s therefore time to kick that sugar habit once and for all.
These blinks will introduce to you four different types of common sugar addictions. You will learn what causes these habits, how they affect your body, how to spot the symptoms and, crucially, how to beat your sugar addiction.
In these blinks, you’ll learn
- why “energy drinks” never live up to their name;
- how stress can make you a sugar addict; and
- how you may have fungal bacteria growing in your gut.
