What happens in our body when we eat sugar?
When you consume sugar, your body has two options on how to deal with it:
Burn it for energy.
Convert to fat and store it in your fat cells.
When your pancreas detects a rush of sugar, it releases a hormone called insulin to deal with all of that excess sugar.
Now, oftentimes our body struggles to get that balance right....
What can you do?
1. Be aware of your cravings
When the body undergoes a sugar overload, a number of symptoms can manifest themselves, including:
Sugar can damage your heart
Sugar specifically promotes belly fat
Sugar may be linked to cancer production and may effect cancer survival
Your sugar "addiction" may be genetic
Sugar and alcohol have similar toxic liver effects on the body
Sugar may sap your brain power
Sugar hides in many everyday "non-sugar" foods
companies have started to disguise the sugar in their foods, so it’s not as apparent how much sugar you are consuming....
Here’s a quick list of what sugar can be listed as on a label
Evaporated cane juice
Organic evaporated cane juice
Fruit juice concentrates
High-fructose corn syrup
What about sugar alternatives?
What about fruit sugar?
YES!!! Fruit can have an effect on your blood sugar, it IS sugar.
Why do they change the name of sugar?
Because nutritional labels are required by law to list their most prominent ingredients first...
By putting two or three different types of sugar in the food (and calling them each a different name), they can spread out the sugar across three ingredients and have it show up much further down the list!
BUT... When you consume fruit, you are not only consuming fructose (in its natural state), but also consuming fiber and lots of vitamins and minerals. :)

2. Once you identify the reason for your sugar craving, decide if there is another activity you can complete to accomplish the intended desire without sugar.
3. Identify rules for yourself, and stick with them by minimizing willpower required
4. Increase the difficulty to continue your bad habit.
