Sugar addiction is a not a myth--it's a reality proven by brain imaging studies. Sweetly Seduced: Why We Can't Say No to Sugar looks at the scientific reasons behind why so many people have such difficulties overcoming their sugar habit.
Sweetly Seduced: Why We Can't Say No to Sugar is based on questions real people have about being hooked on sugar. Questions like: Is this addiction real? What is the relationship between stress, sugar and weight gain? Is sugar consumption linked to depression?
The book delves into the scientific research that answers the questions about why sugar can produce such intense cravings. It does so in a manner easily understandable to a layman. It is not an over-hyped diet book that promises to know all of the answers.
It is meant to be a guide and a resource for information about the abnormal cravings linked to sugar. Armed with this information can help you to break your sugar addiction symptoms once and for all.
Our preference for sweet tastes begins at birth. Food manufacturers capitalize on this inborn preference for sweets by adding sugar to so many processed foods and condiments. It is in their vested interest to hook us on sugar at a young age in order to produce the powerful sugar cravings that keep us coming back for more.
There is a viscous cycle behind out-of-control sugar cravings. Those who experience intense cravings for sugar tend to have low levels of "feel-good" neurotransmitters. They binge on sugar to try to boost these levels, but experience the inevitable sugar crash that leaves them feeling worse than before.
If you are one of the people who can't control their sugar cravings, you will begin to understand why sugar has such a powerful hold on your life by learning about the brain imaging and behavioral studies that have uncovered why beating sugar addiction is so tough.
If you or someone you know cannot stop eating sugar, Sweetly Seduced can help you end the cycle of sugar rush and sugar crash. Sugar addicts can end the cycle and be free of sugar addiction once and for all.
