I understand wanting to get healthy.

I also understand that changing your health starts with taking a look at your relationship with sugar.

Sugar addiction is on the cutting edge of nutrition science because sugar addiction can be similar to drug addiction.

"Drug dependence is characterized by compulsive, sometimes uncontrollable, behaviors that occur at the expense of other activities and intensify with repeated access."

Sugar addiction has been known to have long-term affects on the body, like the following:

  • Disrupts dopamine levels as the brain becomes used to high levels of sugar
    • the gene expression and availability of dopamine receptors can be altered in certain areas of the brain
  • Leads to memory deficiencies, dementia
  • Inflammation, joint pain, increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis
  • Insulin resistance, obesity, diabetes
  • Greater risk of depression
  • Cavities - bacteria on your teeth love to eat sugar
  • Skin ages faster - excess sugar attaches to proteins in your bloodstream and creates harmful molecules that damage collagen and elastin in your skin
  • Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Excess insulin inflames your arteries, putting stress on your heart causing heart disease
  • Overwhelm of the pancreas creating Type 2 Diabetes
  • Kidney failure - especially once diabetic

Depending on your relationship with sugar, giving it up can be difficult.  Withdrawal symptoms for sugar can be both mental and physical. If you are suffering from withdrawal symptoms like anxiety, depression, fatigue, or headaches, here are some suggestions that may help to relieve those symptoms:


  • Consume protein rich foods
  • Get adequate fiber
  • Stay hydrated


  • 7-9 hours of sleep help to regulate hunger and appetite hormones

Stress Management:

  • Find a practice you can do anytime, anywhere. Things like walking, meditation, yoga, and deep breathing


  • Helps to manage stress levels and increase cognitive function
