Sugar: Too Much of a Good Thing?

We all seem to know that sugar isn’t necessarily a good thing to be putting into our bodies, especially if we desire to lose weight. Yet, we tell ourselves just a little here and there won’t hurt, after all we deserve it for all the working out we do. However, can sugar be too much of a good thing or is it really even good at all?

The fact is sugar is addicting. Why? Our brain produces two happy chemicals every time we ingest sugar, serotonin and endorphins, both making you feel very happy with a heightened sense of well-being. Eating sugar triggers an increase in insulin which carries the sugar into our cells for energy production. This process continues and eventually makes the serotonin that makes us feel good. No wonder we want more sugar.

By the way, sugar substitutes like those found in diet soda also cause this chemical reaction, only diet soda also contains harmful chemicals as well. Just this week in an article in Women’s Health, ‘3 Weird Things S Sugar Does to Your Brain’, we find that sugar increases cravings, based on a 2013 study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
