Hi my name is __________ and I am addicted to sugar

Fact: Over a third of the calories we eat is from sugar or white flour

Fact: Sugar give you an initial high, then you crash, then you crave more, then you consume more

Fact: Sugar is a mood altering drug

Fact: Rats when given the choice to drink water tainted with saccharin or intravenous cocaine, 94% preferred the saccharin water. Sweetness is more rewarding to the brain than cocaine.

I learned these intresting tidbits from my Goop newsletter this week (www.goop.com). Read more from Gwyneth Paltrow's interview with Dr. Frank Lipman. He is an integrative medicine doctor based out of New York.
