Yes, You Can Become Addicted to Sugar

http://www.mercola.com/2002/jul/10/sugar_addiction.htm

Although the term "sugar addiction" often appears in magazines and on
television, scientists had not demonstrated that such a thing as
sugar dependency really exist. Researchers studied rats that were
induced to binge on sugar and found that they exhibited telltale
signs of withdrawal, including "the shakes" and changes in brain
chemistry, when the effects of the sweets were blocked. These signs
are similar to those produced by drug withdrawal.

Sugar triggers production of the brain's natural opioids. That is a
key to the addiction process. The brain is getting addicted to its
own opioids as it would to morphine or heroin. Drugs give a bigger
effect, but it is essentially the same process.

The greatest value of the research is that it provides an animal
model of sugar dependency, allowing scientists to probe more deeply
the connections between food cravings and brain physiology.

In their experiments, the researchers started rats on a pattern of
bingeing by withholding food for 12 hours when the rats were sleeping
and through breakfast time, then giving them nutritionally balanced
food plus sugar water. The animals gradually increased their daily
sugar intake until it doubled, consuming most of it in the first hour
it was available.

When the researchers suddenly removed the sugar portion of the rats'
diet, the animals exhibited teeth chattering, a common sign of
withdrawal.

For some animals, the researchers removed the sugar and also
administered a dose of a drug that blocks the opioid receptors in the
brain. In addition to teeth chattering, those animals showed anxiety
and a reversal in the usual balance of neurochemicals in the brain's
motivation system.

Animals that binged on normal food with no sugar and received the
opioid blocker did not show these withdrawal signs. Animals that were
given a steady diet of food and sugar water without binging also did
not show signs of withdrawal.

DR. MERCOLA'S COMMENT:

Let's be clear about this sugar addiction. It is not only sugar that
is the challenge here.

It is also most all of the grains, because most of the grains break
down to sugar very rapidly and cause the same problems with insulin
dysregulation.

One of the keys to riding yourself of the addiction will be complete
abstinence from all sugar and grains. Complete abstinence is required
to successfully resolve most addictions.

It will be very important to eat every two hours to avoid all the
symptoms of hypoglycemia. This is usually necessary for several days
to several weeks.

Complete abstinence will resolve the biochemical addiction in this
time.
