My system reacts to sugar

Any time I get a little sugar in my system my mood skyrockets. I’ve always craved sugar. I think all the sugar I had been consuming somehow inflamed my bronchial tubes, because I got badly winded very easily for a while, and I think it was the sugar that caused it. I told our physical doctor about it, and he put me on an inhaler, and that cleared it up, but I am slowly sliding back to may old ways.

I see there’s some countries now using a sugar tax. I don’t think that is a bad idea where you tax stuff that is high in refined sugar like soft drinks etc. Too much is definately a problem.

They tax smoking and drinking quite a bit, but I don’t know about sugar. Maybe. It would hurt my pocket book.

Yeah it’s tough for those who don’t have a lot but taxing cigs is a no brainer. Associated health costs down the chain is the problem. I’m curious about the sugar. Like I do try to eat pretty well but most days I have a donut or something sugary for morning tea. I’m open to the idea as I think it’s a good goal for society in the long run simply for health outcomes.

Sugar causes the same reactions to the brain as many illegal drugs do.

It is no wonder you feel it.

I feel better from just eating fruit, but I don’t do the hard stuff of sugar. :smiley:
