8 Signs You Are Addicted To Sugar

And what to do about it!

 

You’ve probably noticed that sugar detox programs are all the rage lately. Maybe you’ve questioned whether or not YOU have a problem with sugar. I invite you to keep reading and discover the truth for yourself…

If you agree with any of these clues, you might have a problem with sugar consumption. Sugar is highly addictive, but don’t worry, if you do have a few of these signs you can still turn the situation around.

  • You crave sugary foods or refined carbs at least once a day

You love having a big sugary drink, donut, or muffin for breakfast or in the afternoon. Or maybe you have a more savory palate, and you enjoy a croissant, bagel, or a bag of chips instead. In the end, simple carbs are still sugar.

  • You often keep eating even if you’re full

When you get your hands on a big piece of chocolate cake or other dessert and you can’t stop yourself from finishing it, even if you’re totally full.

  • You eat sugary foods or junk food even when you know you don’t need to

You had a nice healthy supper an hour ago, yet you want to snack on some jelly beans, chocolate, or a bag of chips even though you know that it’s not necessary and you aren’t even hungry.

  • You make excuses to eat sugar

You buy organic sugar or honey or maple syrup so that you can make excuses and claim that it’s healthier. In truth, sugar is still sugar, and you know this yet you can’t stop yourself from indulging.

  • You make special trips to the store or restaurant to get your fix

Uh oh, your ice cream stash is empty or there are no more chips in the cupboard. Time to run to the store and stock up, or go for a treat at your local cafe just because you can.

  • Sugar becomes your reward

I just cleaned the kitchen, so I deserve to have a slice of cheesecake. Or, I had a rough day, I deserve to eat chips or drink a pop after dinner.

  • You’ve got a secret stash and when nobody’s around you dig in

This is a big one, if you have a stockpile of unhealthy snacks that you hide from your loved ones, it’s time to open your eyes and put down the sugar.

  • You’ve tried to stop eating sugar and you just can’t

No matter what you do it seems impossible to stop. You’ve tried to quit sugar but only end up feeling horrible and finally you cave in to the urge.

 

It doesn’t have to be this way, with the right strategies, delicious recipes, and guidance from a qualified professional you can ditch your sugar woes and feel amazing.
