CAUTION: Only read this blog post if you are truly ready to end your relationship with sugar. Once you know this, you can’t go back.
Have you ever been in one of those mid-day slumps where you can’t seem to think straight?
And in a daze, you reach for the sugar-laden latte or a muffin?
Well, what if we told you that the way your brain experiences those stimulants lights up the exact same areas as cocaine? Crazy, right?!
New research is coming out almost every day on just how bad sugar is for the brain. It’s as bad for your brain as being in an extremely stressful or abusive situation 24/7.
Sugar addiction can actually impair the function of the hippocampus, the part of the brain responsible for memory and coping with stress.
The truth is when you go off sugar your brain starts to repair itself. The brain fog you deal with everyday disappears and you feel clear and focused like never before. When sugar is your primary fuel source, not only is it damaging you on a physiological level but it’s also impairing your higher mental functioning.
Using sugar or refined carbohydrates as a pick-me-up creates a vicious cycle, the effects of the sugar wear off quickly and the low energy returns with a vengeance. When you cut sugar out of your diet you transform this cycle and create stable, sustainable energy that allows you to actually focus and feel mentally clear. Just one of the many benefits of eliminating sugar from your life.
