Like heroin, cocaine and caffeine, sugar is an addictive, destructive drug, yet we consume it daily in everything from cigarettes to bread.

-William Dufty, author of Sugar Blues.

Humans love sweet things. Even before we started refining sugar, we sought out foods with sweet tastes.

Today, sugar is found in many of the usual suspects, like cakes, cookies and candy. But you will also find it in canned vegetables, baby food, cereals, peanut butter, bread and tomato sauce. It is often disguised in fancy language, labelled as corn syrup, dextrose, maltose, glucose or fructose. Even some so-called healthy foods contain sugar.

Sugar qualifies as an addictive substance for two reasons:

1. Eating even a small amount creates a desire for more.

2. Suddenly quitting causes withdrawal symptoms such as headaches, mood swings, cravings and fatigue.

So how can we have the “sweet” things in life without hurting ourselves and those we love? Enrol today for the upcoming Sugar Blues Workshop
