Sugar Addiction – The Gremlin in Your Head!

by Sean Croxton & Jill Escher

If there is one thing I know for sure, it is that sugar can be one heck of a drug.

I’ve worked with clients who literally think about sugar all hours of the day.

They need it to function.

And when they go off of it, they suffer from a myriad of nasty withdrawal symptoms.

To me, that sounds pretty drug-like.

No, I don’t think that sugar is the root of all evil. Nor will I lie and tell you that I never touch the stuff. However, when your thoughts are consumed with committing a string of candy store robberies, things are probably getting out of control.

In fact, you may even be addicted to sugar and not even know it. Such was the case with Thursday’s UW Radio guest Jill Escher, author of Farewell, Club Perma-Chub! A Sugar Addict’s Guide to Easy Weight Loss.

    Hi Sean. I left you a pretty lengthy facebook message. I understand if you don’t have time to get to it but I am looking for someone who understands the link between brain function and carbs/sugar. I have been battling eating disorders for almost 3 years now and even after residential treatment I am very much still struggling. I related very much to your story about depression and lack of sex drive from a long low fat diet. I appreciated all you do to promote wellness for everyone!

    Hope to hear from ya!
