Sugar Addiction

Sugar is one of the most common addictions in the UK today? Has your sugar or chocolate fix began to spin out of control? Are you unable to get through your day without experiencing cravings for sugar? Has your habit become so bad that you have started to hide sweet foods and chocolate bars from your partner? If so then it is time to take back control and lick your habit for good.

An addiction to sweet and sugary foods is one of the most widespread and accepted addictions in society today. Unlike an addiction to alcohol and drugs which is frowned upon by society an addiction to sugar can go unnoticed but still create severe problems for the user.

How Sugar Addiction Effects Your Health

These are just some of the problems that can be caused due to excessive sugar intake:

  •     Certain Cancers
  •     IBS

Symptoms of Sugar Addiction Withdrawal

When you are constantly eating excessive amounts of sugar your body will start to produce more insulin. This increased insulin will make the levels of the sugar in your blood drop which then leads to cravings for more sugar. Before you know it you are trapped in a vicious cycle where you are constantly feeding yourself sugar in order to stop the cravings. If you resist and try and stop eating the sugar then you can be faced with symptoms such as:

  •     Headaches
  •     Depression
  •     Fatigue
  •     Mood Swings
  •     Sleep Problems
  •     Drowsiness
  •     Disrupted Sleeping Patterns
