Dr. Mark Hyman explains new research shows that sugar is biologically addictive; the more sugar you eat, the more you crave. The good news is that people can break the sugar addiction in 10 days.

Sugar is NOT the issue, when you eat fat it builds up in the muscle cells and blocks insulin, this is what we call insulin resistance. I'm not saying sugar is healthy since it was no vitamins minerals or fibre, but it is not the issue. I'm high carb low fat vegan and my blood sugar is literally flat lined even after a meal. There are little to no studies done on the keto diet long term, when I say long term I mean 50+ years. The longest living people on Earth (not uncommon to live well past 100) are more than 98% vegan, very very low fat, they mostly eat rice and fruit. Also could someone please post the link to the study he mentioned about sugar being 8 times more addictive than cocaine? (Which is not true, duh) I would love to see who conducted and sponsored the studies. Not uncommon for the meat, egg, and drug companies to fund or even conduct "scientific" studies. Look up Dr. Neal Barnard's book about reversing diabetes. It works. If you truly listen to your body and care for your well being you would be 90/5/5 vegan.
I quit sugar gluten and dairy cold turkey a month ago to help my thyroid. It's amazing how little I care about food now. It all tastes good, satisfying, and when I'm done, I'm done! Never been this way in my life. Sugar free= freedom from sugar
I swear if I didn't have ANY kids I wouldn't be here.. but I gotta get this addiction under control. DAMN KIDS!!😭 I love you but I love my addiction too.. I can't be selfish.😫. My life is not my own...😔
dear sheeple..acidic levels is the problem. sugar is acidic. meat. protein is acidic. your body is in internal greenhouse that needs oxygen. when your cells has low oxygen..you start to have bacteria overgrowth.
even when you do quit sugar it's easy to trigger it off again it's the most addictive substance on our planet yet governments don't care they want to keep us sick it's big business if they wanted us off sugar they would put massive tax on it and advertise how bad it is but that's not good for them
My brain shuts down without sugar. I know it's an addiction but I can't work with a non-working brain. I just accept it and try not to eat more than exactly what I can get away with. If I balance it right I actually lose a little bit of weight but often gain it right back. I really need about a month to "detox" and just let myself pass out for days if that's what it takes to get over this addiction but I can't take that much time off work. I'm not sure what to do really.
Sugar is not the issue, when you eat fat it builds up in the cells and blocks the insulin receptors, giving you insulin resistance. High blood sugar but low energy levels. This eventually can lead to diabetes. The fat you eat is the fat you wear. Look up and read "Dr Neal Barnard's program for reversing type 2 diabetes" 90/5/5 vegan works LONG TERM, keto kills long term. No I'm not saying sugar is a health food but it's not the problem. Low fat vegan works, try it.
Btw if anyone here loves sugary soft drinks but wants to quit them, grab yourself sparking water with minimal sodium and 0 sugar (obviously) and buy some limes.
Squeeze half a lime or full lime into about a pint of sparkling water. Boom. Best substitute for soft drinks i've ever found.
Haven't tried oranges or pineapple with sparkling water yet but i'm going to later today.
WHY does every sugar free video i see feel the god damn need to put a cake, or ice cream, or lollies or some delicious looking piece of food in their damn videos!?!?
I'm 4 days in sugar free (minus one powerade i had on day 1 or 2) been avoiding chocolate for weeks, and sodas. Then they show me this damn cake and it makes me ignore this fucker and want to give in straight up.
Exactly right, coats your cells prohibiting free exchange of nutrients. Some say this is the real cause of diabetes because the cells are coated with sticky oil, the sugar can't get in and begins to build up in the serum, liquid part of blood. Thus high blood sugar.
it seems impossible since all 18 years of my life i have been fat from sugar but just hearing that this will stop my sugar addiction and my gluttonous appetite seems like a myth, a legend, or a story im going to try this out for myself and see if this is true.
Teddygraham you think fruit is bad for weight loss? Lol you clearly don't know how the muscle cells work😂 when you eat fat it builds up in the cells and blocks insulin. Look it up we've known this for years. Fruit is literally the best food on the planet for weight loss.
This goes to an extreme, but as I've learned time and time again, giving up soda and candy can go a lot way to helping you feel a lot better, lose weight, etc.. I also think Diet Sodas are worse than regular even.
Rollo Larson HI! You are doing great! Having minor migraine is normal. I too had headache after few days of quitting sugar. It's a part of process! It will get better and better! It takes 23 days to implement a new habit. So don't quit! I recommend this book called sweet nothing by Nicole Mowbray. She explains it really well.
No shit, how 'bout I just give up added sugar first. Only on day two of no added sugar and it feels like I have a migraine. Does he really think I'm going to pull off all that other shit too?!
The lactose in dairy gets absorbed quickly by your body and rises your blood sugar levels.
If you want dairy the best is cheese, it usually contains more fat than lactose (sugar) and it's hard to overeat it.
On Tuesday I will finish my detox from sugar. Since January first, I have been eating only meat, eggs, and cheese. Lost 5 pounds already.
Bad side effects: headaches and itchy skin.
Good side effects: I can smell things better, belly bloating got down, weight loss.
For anyone who was wondering how much 152 pounds of sugar per year is. Its 186.5 grams a day, which is a lot, WAY too much. We should be taking in anywhere from 20-40 grams a day and it should be from healthy sources, upwards of 50-60 is ok maybe once a week, but only if its from fruit etc. I also suggest You guys google search how much sugar is in fruit and do some research and structure Your diets based on sugar intake guidelines, You'll likely be surprised that theres only 9 grams of sugar in an orange and 10 grams in an apple! Much more satisfying snacks than one single cookie which can contain up to 30 grams!
juicing fruit/vegetables can be beneficial when taken with something that will help the nutrients slowly release, as the juice alone on an empty stomach will release the sugar quickly into your system, but after one hour you will crash harder than if you take it with a solid food that can absorb it. the acids in the juice also go through your digestive system and help break down the food you eat, Milk can also help aid in digestion, as well as water with added lemon or lime juice(great for breaking down meals) but water alone doesnt go through the digestive system(because it has no calories to break down) it is instantly absorbed into your body , dont believe me? After eating a small meal , 5 minutes later if you chug a bunch of water and vomit, the food will still be dry like it never came in contact with water.
So we're supposed to be able to do this through sheer will power, yet alcoholics and chain smokers have support groups and other things like wearing patches, etc? Surely most of us have read stories of someone trying to go it alone to quit smoking. They throw all their packs away, try to chew gum instead, then a few hours later, they're fishing through the garbage can to get them back.
Spot On ! Ive started to see the impact of free sugar and free gluten diet ... wow ! ive never had so much energy and ever strength on my whole body. Two weeks into my diet i lost about 7kg without any physical workout ...
I wonder, if my wife eat any sweets she gets like high and really messed up in brain, right after she puts in in her mouth, why is that ? Its like when she starts chewing it that happends. Really strange. Wonder what that could be ?
Aria Targaryen any food containing flour causes difficulty digesting. You need to consume complex carbohydrates NOT the simple carbs containing glucose. I live pastry and it's my weakness but whenever I have them I feel rather uncomfortable and bloated that is because it is made of simple carbs.
I don't get why people bash on refined sugars and flours so much.. I started eating lchf without depriving myself of occasional treats like oreo's or going to a mcdonnald's once a week and still I lost all my belly fat in less than two months, plus a lot or more important benefits (although people seem to care only about loosing weight).
Going from a diet full of bread and pasta to occasional unhealthy foods is still a huge step in the right direction, there's no need to quit on everything you enjoy eating.

sugar is like crack. No seriously, it is. But we are soooo used to it we don't know. I cracked my sugar addiction I no longer eat anything with refined shit sugar in it. Only sugar from fruits and vegetables and stuff. Try to go 2 weeks let alone 3 days without ANY SUGAR you will be like spongebob on the "I don't need it....I don't need it....I DONT NEED IT" video. It is incredibly hard but once you get through it your life and health gets better. I went FUCKING INSANE without sugar the first week or two. it's incredibly tough. You snap at people, you are angry and bitter, you pace back and forth. Your mind subconsciously goes back to sugar and tells you to look through every single cabinet for some. It's some insane shit. It's like a drug, but we are so conditioned to depend on it from when we are months old, we don't see that.
Sugar is horrible for you body, mind and overall well being
If you're eating low fat sugar is not bad for you, obviously fruit and starchy veggies are better because of the vitamins minerals and fiber but if (like me) you excersize at a very high intensity (I'm a cyclist) sugar can be immensely helpful, half a cup of sugar in your water bottle will go a long way. Go low fat vegan!!!!!
Fruit has fiber in it which it makes them easy to digest. You can trim a little on sugary fruits depending on the sugar levels in your blood but do not ban them completely. Remember, moderation is the key.
I am trying to quit specifically CANDY. Jfc, why have my parents ever given me chocolate... so hard to quit. I don't eat that much sugar except for that. I am planning to keep fruit and some yogurts in my diet. As well as a bit of dark chocolate every day , which is just healthy af. And some occasional sweetened coffee.
Wish me luck!!!!!!
Do it. Think about it, we all really know what is healthy or not. for example FAT from donuts and a bag of potato-chips is not good but FAT from an avocado is super healthy.
Same goes for sugar. SUGAR from candy and other sweets is not good while "SUGAR" from fruits is super healthy.
It is all pretty simple actually. Don't worry too much about diets and all the details yet, just start off with common sense like : no sweets or bad fats, only natural sugar and fat and protein with a lot of water and you are good to go.
I need to do this now. The one thing that's stopping me from achieving my goals in the gym is fucking sugar. It's such a shitty drug and I've had enough of it. 10 days - period. I'm going to get rid of my desire for stupid sugary food. Let's go, I've got until the 19th of August - no sugar. Just meat, fish, eggs, oats, potatoes, rice and vegetables.
The mistake many people make is they don't realise how dangerous sugar is! What annoys is me the most is the fat free industry. Every single product labeled as fat free has a much higher sugar content. It's shocking! If you don't believe me, watch That Sugar Film documentary. 😡
Fat free foods have a higher sugar content to make the product more palatable. Same with diet pop. You actually end up drinking more diet pop to get the same effect you are seeking from regular pop, and artificial sweeteners are even more dangerous to your body than natural sugar. I wish everyone the best in breaking their sugar addiction!
Dude milk is basically mucus-laden growth hormone genetically engineered to do one thing - make a calf grow. Imagine an otter drinking human breast milk - seem strange? Because that is exactly what we are doing with cow milk. The calcium is broken down by lactose, which during the homogenisation process is destroyed anyway, so we don't even get that from it, just a build up of bovine fats and an endless array of added chemicals.
Don't fall for the farce that is milk - another product stolen from animals and force-fed to us with the lie that it's natural and beneficial.
+Mintcandyapple thanks again for this. I live in Germany so it is a little harder to decipher the labels, but I see your point. So everything after: carbohydrates from sugar is not necessarily added sugar. TBH I am less worried about fat content as I probably should be but do you agree that between fat and sugar, sugar is the one to pay more attention to?
thanks. although my milk shows 4.6 g per 100 ml, that still puts it over 10 g per cup which is more than I thought. is this added or just the lactose in the milk? would it make a difference?
I guess my problem is that I thought it would be enough to limit my foods to ones which have limited amounts of 'added' sugars. And I hate the taste of all sugar substitutes so I am trying to figure out how to take my post-workout protein without milk! with water it tastes like crap too. incidentally, doesnt our body need some sugar after a workout?
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
