Did you know that certain foods like sugar can set off a cascade of brain changes. Sugar, fats, simple carbohydrates are a few heavy hitters in this class. Let’s discuss sugar: it’s addictive and affects your brain by releasing dopamine, the neurotransmitter that is associated with pleasurable activities. Dopamine release can lead to addiction. Eating too much sugar can lead to diabetes, addictive behavior, accelerated aging, tooth decay, brain fog, headaches, elevated blood pressure, cardio issues, feeds cancer cells, obesity, depression, toxicity, etc. When sugar cravings get out of control there’s one thing you can do and that’s retrain your brain to crave healthier foods.
To change your additive relationship to certain foods, one must retrain the brain to stop craving the unhealthy food and replace the cravings for healthy eating. Stopping the food cravings before they occur is crucial to success. Remove all the unhealthy foods from your house and stock up on healthy slow digesting foods. Keep hydrated with pure water and sip on organic green tea throughout the day. Develop the habit to stop eating before you are 100% full. Stay clear of the processed salty and sugary foods because many have ‘addictive’ flavoring added. The problem is the food not you!
Healthy eating takes commitment and remembering that eating food is a two way relationship.
Hopefully, you will develop a healthy relationship with food and not a toxic one. You CAN do this!
