Is there any scientific evidence that refined sugar can be addictive? And, therefore, have withdrawl symptoms? I have anecdotal evidence but was wondering if there is actual research that supports my experience. Thanks.
Yes, absolutely. I've lived through it. I'm not a doctor, but I know many people who have gotten over sugar addiction and are now living day to day, still craving sugar, but off it none-the-less. Carbohydrates are also addictive. If you're interested in learning more, go to this site:
That's a question I would like the answer to too. I seem to crave sugar. I can go a few days and then finally I just can't stand it anymore and I have to have something sweet. When I eat it it's such an uplifting feeling on my tongue and it's like complete satisfaction. I'm wondering if this might be a symptom of or related to some of type of problem.
