12 DAYS OF MEAL PREP-MAS: DAY 11 – EDUCATION NATION

Heyyyy sisters,

Think about this for a minute…Something in our kids lunch box is more addictive than street drugs.

Is it just as harmful?

The term sugar refers to sucrose, or table sugar. When isolated from nature – like cocaine from the coca leaf – it becomes a drug. This means, according to the FDA, that it’s now a “substance (other than food) intended to affect the structure or any function of the body.”

(Yes, the FDA classifies sugar as a drug.)

Like fraternal twins, sugar and cocaine are both isolated using harsh acids, bleaching and a series of purification steps that are performed by chemists in a laboratory or processing plant. Atomically, they only differ by a nitrogen atom. Otherwise, they share very similar biochemical outcomes.

  • Both drugs cause cardiovascular diseases.
  • Both drugs over stimulate the pleasure centers in the brain.
  • Both drugs are highly addictive.

In fact, you can be born addicted to cocaine and sugar courtesy of your mom – sugar addicted babies have to be hooked up to a sugar-drip to curb withdraw of severely low blood sugar, hypoglycemia.


Once dissolved on the tongue, the perfectly sweet crystals of sugar cause the brain to release pain-relieving compounds known as opioids, thereby relieving stress. Simultaneously, dopamine is released in mass amounts, eliciting an ARTIFICIAL feel good.

This is why you temporarily feel better after eating SUGAR!! It feels like true love for the sugar addict. 

But, sadly it’s short lived, and the pain of what you just did to your body sets in!!

Referred to as the sugar crash, the high evaporates quickly. The brain chemicals just can’t keep up. Nor can blood sugar. Both plummet. Users are left feeling lethargic, depressed and wanting more.

Withdraw sets in.

This roller coaster injects enormous cravings for all the things that trigger the pleasure center: more sugar and even illicit drugs, alcohol, and nicotine. That’s why abstaining from any single one without addressing the addiction is futile. Ultimately, users will just bounce back and forth – sugar, to alcohol, to nicotine, rinse, repeat.

Sugar was my drug of choice as a NEW MOM.

It was nearly impossible to find pleasure outside of a sugar fix or anything that resembled it. It’s how I dealt with stress, and exhaustion.

What a cycle.

Like a cocaine addict, the more sugar you have, the more you want, regardless of how sick it makes you.

Unknown to most, the best way to break the addiction is to increase your sensitivity to it. The more sensitive your body is to sugar, the less you crave.

-> Have YOU noticed once you have detoxed the sugar out, your sensitivity has heightened? Meaning once you haven’t had it in a while when you do again for the 1st time it seems TOO SWEET??


-> Your knowledge, and simply being aware is your new POWER.


-> A diet rich in organic meats, eggs, vegetables, avocados, coconut oil, whey, etc….can heal our sugar dependency.

    Excellent info! That is the truth, since I have been detoxing from sugar since April 2016. When I taste something that has sugar 99% of the time it is too sweet. I love the feeling. That means I won’t eat it anymore. Like I tried to taste Krispy Kreme donut and a Dunkin donut and it was too much. I am so excited to say that I won’t try that again.
