Habit Number Four – Limit Sugar
How Sugar damages our Health and how we can slowly eliminate it from our diets.
This is a habit I am deeply passionate about. I believe that sugar is one of the largest contributors to our health problems, fatigue, and mood swings.
Did you know that the average person eats a whopping 69kg’s of sugar a year in their diet? That’s 6 cups of sugar a week! Sugar addiction is a real phenomenon and one we need to take seriously. Brain imaging and blood tests have shown that the addiction center in our brains, which is stimulated by heroin and cocaine etc., gets radically stimulated every time we ingest sugar. We get trapped in a dangerous cycle of cravings as our brains search for that ‘high’ and we give in (once again) to sugary foods.
