Sugar vs Cocaine???

Still craving sugar? Feeding the family sugar?

Think about this for a minute…Something in our kids lunch box is more addictive than street drugs.

Is it just as harmful?

The term sugar drefers to sucrose, or table sugar. When isolated from nature – like cocaine from the coca leaf – it becomes a drug. This means, according to the FDA, that it’s now a “substance (other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body.”

(Yes, the FDA classifies sugar as a drug.)

Like fraternal twins, sugar and cocaine are both isolated using harsh acids, bleaching and a series of purification steps that are performed by chemists in a laboratory or processing plant. Atomically, they only differ by a nitrogen atom. Otherwise, they share very similar biochemical outcomes.

Both drugs cause cardiovascular diseases.

Both drugs over stimulate the pleasure centers in the brain.

Both drugs are highly addictive.

In fact, you can be born addicted to cocaine and sugar courtesy of your mom – sugar addicted babies have to be hooked up to a sugar-drip to curb withdraw of severely low blood sugar, hypoglycemia.

Once dissolved on the tongue, the perfectly sweet crystals of sugar cause the brain to release pain-relieving compounds known as opioids, thereby relieving stress. Simultaneously, dopamine is released in mass amounts, eliciting an ARTIFICIAL feel good.

It feels like true love for the sugar addict.

But, it’s short lived.

Referred to as the sugar crash, the high evaporates quickly. The brain chemicals just can’t keep up. Nor can blood sugar. Both plummet. Users are left feeling lethargic, depressed and wanting more.

Withdraw sets in.

This roller coaster injects enormous cravings for all the things that trigger the pleasure center: more sugar and even illicit drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. That’s why abstaining from any single one without addressing the addiction is futile. Ultimately, users will just bounce back and forth – sugar, to alcohol, to nicotine, rinse, repeat.

Sugar was my drug of choice as a NEW MOM.

It was nearly impossible to find pleasure outside of a sugar fix or anything that resembled it. It how I dealt with stress, and exhaustion.

What a cycle.

Like a cocaine addict, the more sugar you have, the more you want, regardless of how sick it makes you. And this is why it’s nonsensical to deal sugar to our kids “as a treat.”

From an evolutionary perspective, this all makes sense. The inherent desire for sweetness – courtesy of reward centers in the brain – drives survival. It’s in our best interests for our brain to force us to seek out food. However, when manipulated by processed sugar, this desire grows into an unhealthy dependence on sugary foods. That dependence parlays into diabetes, heart disease and cancer.

Unknown to most, the best way to break the addiction is to increase your sensitivity to it. The more sensitive your body is to sugar, the less you crave.

-> Have YOU noticed once you have detoxed the sugar out, your sensitivity has heightened?

-> Your knowledge, and simply being aware is your new POWER.

-> A diet rich in organic meats, eggs, vegetables, avocados, coconut oil, whey, etc….can heal our sugar dependency.

-> Let’s make this week’s focus, HEALTH…and celebrate our tiny victories together 🙂
