Are You Addicted to Sugar?

How to tell if you're addicted to sugar

Recent studies have confirmed what many of us have suspected for years: sugar is addictive.

In fact, long before “sugar addiction” was even a term, I used to say that I was a “sugarholic,” implying that my addiction to sugar was like an alcoholic’s addiction to alcohol. Turns out, I was right.

But feeling compelled to eat sugary foods, or feeling like you “must” head over to the cupboard and pull out that box of Oreos, doesn’t necessarily mean that you are a true sugar addict.

So how can you tell if sugar is a real problem, or just an annoyance that can be dealt with?
