Sugar Is As Addictive As Cocaine!

I am not American and I don’t do gallons and pounds, but 1 pound is 0,45kg and a gallon is 3,78litres. We know Australia is right behind (or have we surpassed) US in obesity figures and also sugar consumption, so this applies here too. And in very many other countries. You’re better off having those 10 strips of bacon a day than the added sugar!

    Reblogged this on anthonyvenable110.

    Now I feel guilty for adding to that as a baker…

  4. Scary stuff. I have *almost* cut out all refined sugar, its hard though, it really is in EVERYTHING.

  5. Scary stats, but the one thing I will NOT use is sweetener that contains 951 – it is poison!

  6. Miss Wynter says:

    I am very addicted, and then whats worse is that sugar is in EVERYTHING.

    Nordmenn er ikke langt etter de heller når det gjelder sukkerinntak! 😉

  8. I would like to thank you for following my blog, because then I would never have found yours! You’re a very inspiring blogger. I happen to be a health enthusiast too, and that’s pretty hard to do as a student in University – you can’t imagine the unhealthiness of the food offered in and around campus. Every bit of inspiration is always helpful.
    After I read this post, I thought you’d be interested in a post I read on Nerd Fitness blog about the science behind why exactly sugar is addictive and dangerous. 🙂
    Have a great week.

  9. I just got my very first Stevia plant, hope it has an effect on the amount of sugar I eat 🙂

  10. Don’t want to sound annoying, but which reference states that sugar is indeed as addicting as cocaine?

    But yes, a very good, informative post.
