Are you ever anxious about finding something sweet? Are you that person who just tries to promise to only have a little piece, and then ends up completely indulging yourself? If this is you, it may be time to give sugar up for good.

In most cases, the sweetness will raise your blood sugar, giving you a sense of energy. The sweet sugar also gives you a boost in serotonin, giving you a feeling of happiness. This would explain why many of us tend to overdo it in the sugar department. According to the AHA, the average American consumes over 150 pounds of sugar each year. But when the crash hits, you will need another “hit” of this addictive drug called sugar.

So it’s probably a given that sugar is not your body’s best friend, but you may not be so aware of the fact that empty calories aren’t the only thing you need to be worried about.
