1. Understand where the cravings come from.
The way that sugar impacts your brain is no different than other addictive drugs like cocaine, heroin, tobacco, alcohol: sugar targets the same receptors in the brain and release the same brain chemicals. And those brain chemicals gives us a short term sensation of pleasure, happiness, satisfaction – a lift! But its short-lived and just like any other drug, you are quickly waiting for the next hit.
