After having something spicy or oily, our bodies crave for dessert, demanding something sweet like pastries, ice-cream or even just mere fruits. The keyword here is 'addiction'. Yes, my friend, all of us are addicted to the taste of sweetness.
However, this creates a sort of addiction towards this release of dopamine, therefore we take in more sweets than we should have to satisfy the addiction. We need to resist the urge, the crave for monosaccharides, disaccharides, or oligosaccharides. The discovery of the effect of the sugar is discussed in detail in the research of Dr. DesMalsons in her book Potatoes not Prozac: Solutions for Sugar Sensitivity.
There are quite a number of other research projects that warn us regarding the addiction to sugar. Scientifically, sugar gives a neurochemical reation which lights the way- opens the door for other, more severe drugs.
The sweetness of sugar is comparable to the high one gets off cocaine. (Bordeaux University, France) The lab rats are given a choice: Sugar, or Cocaine? Surprisingly, all of them picked sugar, which releases more dopamine and the feeling of euphoria.
The intake of sugar as cocaine brings about a plethora of negative effects on the body. To satisfy the needs of the flesh, one takes more and more sugar, leading to an over-excessive intake of sugar and is potentially lethal.
