One neat trick to kill those sugar cravings!
By Coach Fahad
Do you crave sugar?
Sugar’s gotten a very bad reputation over the years and the fact of the matter is, as a society, we over consume sugar. It’s hidden in a lot of the foods we eat and it astounds me how bad the teeth of kids are these days, most likely caused by sugar.
The trouble with sugar though is that it is addictive. In fact, studies show that it’s more addictive than cocaine.
One of the reasons for this is due to the neurotransmitter, Dopamine.
Dompamine is the feel good chemical that the brain releases when you do something good. Feel good after giving money to charity? That’s dopamine… feel good after a workout? That’s dopamine. Feel good after eating sugar.. guess what…
The thing is though, frequent hits of dopamine can often decrease the effectiveness of the neurotransmitter and you require more and more to get the same hit…
And that’s when a sugar addiction can spiral out of control.
If you think you’re addicted to sugar there is something you can try.
Taking the amino Acid Glutamine can help curb the sugar addictions.
According to expert Charles Poliquin, Taking 30g of Glutamine with a shot glass full of cream or coconut cream and you’ll feel the craving go away.
A month or so of this and you should have got the sugar cravings under control!
