Is Sugar Toxic?

The short answer: yes, the way we eat it today.

We eat a lot of sugar. More than you realize. Case in point, on my cheat day this weekend, I found these amazing Pretzel Pieces. They could even be described as life-changing. I thought to myself, “why the heck do these taste so good?!” Take a look at the ingredients, one of the top ingredients is sugar.

Sugar tastes good. Our body craves it. Watch the video above and you’ll notice that sugar has the same effects on our brain as serious, illegal drugs. It’s not natural for us to consume as much sugar as we do – even theĀ amountĀ of sugar in one soda.

All calories are not created equal. I’ll be talking more in the future about how you can eat more fat (and less sugar) to lose weight.
