Sugar Is As Addictive As Cocaine?

I ran across this video over at Clean Eating. It echoes a lot of what I have been reading in Eat To Live by Dr. Furhman. Sugar is as addictive as cocaine? That is what one neuroscientist claims due to the way our brains respond to it. 

 

 

Ironically, I remember having a discussion with my mom years ago. I told her that when I eat something sweet it instantly makes me feel better. As a consequence, when I am upset, eating something sweet was a knee-jerk reaction for me. Joining the gym and meditation have become other coping mechanisms for stress because, apparently, the sugar is killing us.
