Well-written and so true…

Before the Victoria’s Secret angel, Miranda Kerr, knew she was going to succeed in modeling she studied nutrition in Australia. Kerr has repeatedly made the analogy of white sugar becoming equivalent to “white death.” It sounds a bit on the extreme side, but then why are other health experts (Kimberly Snyder, Kris Carr, Melinda Hemmelgarn—to name a few) quick to agree? Here I will explain the mystery behind the powerful white molecule along with some other gimmicks these food companies think consumers are too stupid to question.
-Sugar is as addictive as crack. I mean, I’ve never actually tried crack but I had to get you to listen up. Sugar activates dopamine—the neurotransmitter associated with feelings of well-being in your brain. This is why your cravings for sugar increase during times of stress and sadness; your brain is craving that quick high. Unfortunately, the feeling of well-being is temporary, so in order to feel it again you will crave and eat more sugar. Hence the craving for a gallon of ice cream when watching your favorite but depressing chick flicks—The Notebook, anyone?
