This Ted video on how sugar affects your brain is fascinating. It’s incredibly well done, and takes a layman’s approach to explaining what happens to your brain on sugar. Before you watch it, there is one thing that I want to point out. When they say sugar, they are not just referencing table sugar, or ‘sweet’ sugar as it comes to mind. Instead, anything ending in “ose”, including lactose (milk), glucose, fructose, dextrose and of course, starch (bread/cereal/pasta)! After watching, I have a feeling you’ll understand why it’s no wonder you feel so addicted to your bread.
Do you struggle with a sugar or carb addiction? My advice? MORE protein and MORE healthy fats!
