Sugar addiction is a serious health issue and there is actually a huge difference between having a sweet tooth and being addicted to sugar. Check out some of the most common signs of sugar addiction that should indicate that it’s time to reduce sugar intake.

Carving Comfort Foods

Being addicted to sugar doesn’t mean you’re only addicted to eating sweets and desserts. Sugar addiction can also make you crave comfort foods like pizza, burgers, or pasta because they are high in calories, sugar, and fat and can also quickly satisfy our cravings. 

Eating Sweets After Every Meal

People who are used to eating a dessert or anything sweet after every meal should also consider reducing their sugar intake because this may be a sign of sugar addiction. It’s absolutely fine to treat yourself with sweets sometimes, but this is not something you should do on a daily basis.  

Experiencing Symptoms of Withdrawal

People who are addicted to sugar are likely to experience headaches, nausea, and tiredness after reducing their sugar intake. This is a normal body reaction and a sign of withdrawal after we cut out sugar abruptly.
