Most people know that sugar is not a very healthy food, but few understand that it is similar to some of the most potent drugs. Sugar can affect brain function, disrupt healthy metabolic processes, and cause substantial weight gain over only a short period of time.
Not only is it unhealthy, but it is almost unavoidable. Food growers and makers have been adding sugar to almost every imaginable food and beverage since the 1970s (including baby formula), and today it is a leading contributor to the obesity epidemic as well as many chronic diseases.

Sugar is a drug that acts just like all of the world's other drugs. It creates a rush of pleasure chemicals in the brain and it allows us to become tolerant to it. This creates the need for ever more of the drug to get the same response. When you cut this drug from your diet, you experience classic signs of withdrawal that range from emotional outbursts and depression to physical symptoms like headache and digestive upset.
Be prepared for this, and be ready to combat the worst of the challenges because you are only doing yourself a lot of good by cutting out sugar from your life. You will want to find others who are experiencing the same issues that you are, and who have decided to stand against the pervasive poisoning of the general public through the "pushing" of sugar.
People are not meant to be trained pets who eat only what is supplied to them, and your decision to cut your sugar addiction proves that you understand the importance of making good choices. Your health is in your hands, and just removing sugar is going to improve it dramatically.
We wish you the best of luck in your journey to freedom from sugar addiction. You will have many interesting experiences along the way, but the one you will enjoy the most is waking for the first time knowing that your body is free of something that may have been clouding your mind, altering your perception, and impacting the quality of your life.
