Why is sugar and dairy so addicting?

Think of sugar as energy. Without energy, we wouldn’t be able to get out of bed, jog, play or go to work. Your brain knows life without sugar is not possible. Every time you eat sugar, the brain releases dopamine. Dopamine makes us feel good and tells our brain, “remember this and do it again.”

Dairy works in the same way. Think about it as an infant. You’re just born, and you need to eat to survive and grow. And what’s on the menu? Milk. Only milk. Milk is addicting to make sure you like it. Because if you don’t, you will not survive.

This could be a reason for soda and cheese cravings, and why kids only want sweets and milk.

So if you are not feeling 100 percent, it could be because you are abusing sugar and milk. Knowing how to make healthier choices can get you healthy. You are not alone. If you would like help getting healthy, contact me.
