With 18 percent of American diets coming from added sugar, sugar addiction is becoming the rule rather than the exception. Many eat their weight in sugar every year, which may be why they’re tired, achy, "brain fogged," anxious and unable to lose weight.
Cutting back on sugar not only lowers the risk of diabetes, hypertension, stroke and heart attacks — the major killers of modern life ― it also helps fight many other medical conditions. Plus it boosts your metabolism, making it easier to lose weight!
For most, simply trying to cut out sugar usually doesn’t work. Besides, who wants to cut out the things that give them pleasure. If living a long life means cutting out the things you enjoy, why bother?
To beat sugar addiction, you need to identify what type of addict you are and then follow a step-by-step treatment approach for your specific type. This includes natural therapies and simple lifestyle changes, as well as directions for your inner journey ― a journey that will not only heal your body but also your mind and spirit. A journey that will change your life!
Here are the four types of sugar addiction to watch out for:
1. Hooked on "Energy Loan Sharks." When daily fatigue causes sugar (and caffeine) cravings, sometimes all you need is to improve nutrition, sleep and exercise.
2. Feed Me Now or I’ll Kill You. If you get irritable when you’re hungry and crash under stress, it’s important to treat adrenal exhaustion.
3. The Happy Twinkie Hunter. If you have chronic nasal congestion, sinusitis, spastic colon, or irritable bowel syndrome, treating yeast overgrowth is critical.
4. Depressed and Craving Carbs. Standard blood testing for hormonal deficiencies will not reveal the problems until they are very severe, sometimes leaving people deficient for decades
