Emotional attachments to sugary foods can start as early as infancy. For some of us, sugar cravings can dominate our lives and make us feel out of control with our eating habits.
It’s important to recognize that there are fundamental reasons rooted in our biology, psychology, or both, for sugar cravings.
Food is in our genetic memory. It is the first feel-good experience for most human beings.
Turning to sugar as a source of comfort or emotional regulation during stressful times is not a sign that we’re weak or undisciplined - it simply means we’re humans trying to find methods for emotional regulation. Looking to other ways to manage our stress is key to lessening our reliance on sugar.
Finding balance with food cravings such as sugar is not so much about cutting out the “bad” or unwanted food out. It’s about adding in life — whatever that means for us personally.
