Ah, honey, honey
You are my candy girl
And you got me wanting you…”
- the Archies 

This is the perfect song to describe our relationship with sugar. Sugar, also named honey, brown sugar, molasses, agave, coconut sugar, glucose, fructose, sucrose and over 40 other names, has us wanting it. And in unhealthy amounts! Nowadays, it is common to hear people say “I’m trying to quit sugar, but I always end up eating it at the end of the day.” Or, “I’m trying to cut out sugar, but I have the world’s strongest cravings.” For most of these people, they are putting themselves in a position where they will carry out their new sugar-free habit for a few days and then abandon ship by the weekend. Why is this? Because cravings and food tolerance levels take weeks to change. The same person who eats a sugar loaded yogurt parfait for breakfast, a grilled cheese sandwich for lunch, a bowl of pasta for dinner and a giant bowl of ice cream for dessert, is the same person who says they are quitting sugar starting tomorrow. And the same person who will find themselves scraping the bottom of the container of ice cream that next night.
