“If you felt like one of the six ways you might be addicted to sugar connects with you - please know that you are not alone. And please hold zero shame for yourself too. Honestly, in our sugar-heavy world we are pretty much set up to fail. Sugar not only acts as a mind and mood-altering drug, it's put in virtually everything you consume. You’d be shocked to find how much sugar is added to foods that you may not typically expect. This is extremely common in the health food world as products are labeled or marketed as being quote on quote healthy, when really they are loaded with sugars or oils. If anyone was to actually measure their daily sugar intake, they would be floored at how much sugar is in their diets. So if you feel you are probably not of the 75% of the US population consuming too much sugar, once you start reading your ingredient labels, you might be in for a rude awakening.”
