Sugar Causes Craving, Withdrawal and Tolerance
“We have all heard that sugar can affect our waistlines, but recent research also provides evidence to support what many have been saying for years – that sugar can cause addiction-like symptoms such as craving, withdrawal and tolerance,” according Dr. Nicole Avena, PhD, “5-Step Plan to Kick Your Sugar Addiction,” published by The Dr. Oz Show.
There are steps you can take to break the cycle of sugar highs and lows and regain control. Bliss Sweeteners can play a helpful role in a plan to cut back. Avena offers a 5-Step Plan to kick the sugar addition, starting with documenting each gram of sugar you consume and working to eliminate it. Bliss Sweetener is a logical substitute with zero grams sugar, zero impact on glycemic index, zero carbohydrates and zero calories.
“The bottom line is that sugar works the addiction and reward pathways in the brain in much the same way as many illegal drugs,” writes Dr. Frank Lipman, Founder of Eleven Wellness Center in an article on Huffington Post, “20 Tips to Curb Sugar Cravings and Kick the Additions. “And, like other drugs, it can destroy your health and lead to all sorts of ailments including heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, weight gain, and premature aging. Sugar is basically a socially acceptable, legal, recreational drug, with deadly consequences — and like with any drug addiction, you have to have a flexible but structured plan to beat it.”
Imagine cutting out 40 plus grams of sugar a day simply by switching to Bliss Sweetener as your primary sweetener.
Use Bliss sucralose sweetener in your coffee and save 4 grams of sugar per teaspoon of sugar you cut out. Simply replace each teaspoon of sugar with a drop of Bliss liquid sucralose. Instead of a cola drink with 40 grams of sugar, drop a couple splashes of Bliss Sweetener over flavored carbonated water. You’ll have a delicious carbonated treat with no sugar. As a liquid sucralose sweetener, Bliss Sweetener dissolves quickly and easily into your artisan homemade soda.
