This is episode 4 of the 10-part Crave Cure Series: Going Beyond the Food. Have you ever considered that your sweet tooth or sugar cravings could actually be an addiction? What we really need to understand is the definition of addiction. Our guest today, Dr. Sam Shay, will not only define sugar addiction but will also help us understand the underlying issues that cause it. The origin of your sugar cravings or addiction can actually be in your thoughts and beliefs.
In the last episode, Dr. Carolyn Ross and I talked about binge eating and overeating. She taught us that we seek sensations every time we eat. If you’ve been struggling with binge-eating, I highly recommend that you listen to this episode.
Next episode will be about stress eating, a common issue for those who have so much going on in their lives. I’m going to be with Evan Brand, a board-certified holistic nutritionist. Stay tuned for it!
