The more sugar you eat on a daily basis, the more you’ll crave.
Sugar is highly addictive and it gives a temporary high that’s soon followed by a crash. This triggers the body to want more.
Eating an excessive amount of sugar leads to cravings but it also cause our taste buds to adapt to the amount you’re consuming. Meaning we will be left needing more to get the same taste.
If you notice that you continually feel tired and have a lack of energy, there’s a good chance it has something to do with your sugar intake.
