If you agree to any of these clues, you might have a problem with sugar consumption. Sugar is highly addictive, if you do have a few of these signs, don’t worry, you can turn the situation around.
You crave sugary foods or refined carbs at least once a day
You love having a big donut or muffin with an afternoon coffee. Or maybe you’re more of a savory type of person and you enjoy a croissant loaded with cheese or a bag of chips. In the end it all turns into sugar.
You often keep eating even if your full
When you get your hands on a big piece of chocolate cake you can’t stop yourself from finishing it, even if you’re totally full.
You eat sugary foods or junk food even when you know you don’t need to
You had a nice healthy supper an hour ago, yet you want to snack on some jelly beans, chocolate or a bag of chips even though you KNOW that it’s not nutritionally necessary, nor are you truly even hungry.
