Your score fits the profile of a “JUNK FOOD JUNKIE”

Although you do not eat much – When you do it is mostly junk food. You survive on pizza, pasta and burgers. These foods contain a HIGH amount of hidden sugar, often the junk food junkie also consumes sugar in a whole range of other foods.

For some people sugar can act exactly like a drug.

Although you may not realize it the reason you crave these foods is because of their sugar content. Sugar is one of the MOST “ABUSED SUBSTANCES in the US Today – This is why we have very deliberately used the term JUNKIE!

If left unchecked it can become an addiction. Sugar addiction is present when someone has an uncontrollable craving for sweet foods – Experts agree that sugar might be as addictive as Cocaine.

There is an increasing body of research that indicates that excess sugar could be as addictive as some street drugs and have similar effects on the brain.

The word addiction describes a tragic situation where someone’s brain chemistry has been altered to compel them to repeat using a substance despite negative consequences.

Effects : Eating sugar releases opioids and dopamine in our bodies – This is the link between sugar and addictive behavior. Dopamine is a Neurotransmitter that is a key part of the “Pleasure Reward Circuit” associated with addictive behavior. 

When a certain behavior causes an excess release of dopamine, you feel a pleasurable “high” that you are inclined to re-experience… and so you repeat the behavior.

As you repeat the behavior more and more, your brain adjusts to release less dopamine. The only way to feel the same “high” as before is to repeat the behavior in increasing amounts and frequency. This is known as substance misuse. unlike many other substance use disorders or behavior compulsions.

Unlike many other substance use disorders or behavior compulsions, sugar addiction is not so easy to spot.

Symptoms :Sugar addiction is not so easy to spot. It is often When people need to lose weight for medical reasons and are asked to go on a strict diet and keep a food journal that they suddenly realize just how much sugar they are consuming. And just how difficult it is to give up.

One of the other things they notice is that they experience symptoms very like withdrawal : Headaches and really strong sugar cravings.

In certain people with certain predispositions, this could manifest as an addiction to sugary food – If you notice some of these symptoms You need to get help.

How it starts ?

It all starts off very innocently, almost as soon as a child is born, we reward them with something sweet- very soon this is something they associate with comfort.

It is, therefore, no surprise that in adulthood We continue to reward ourselves with something sweet, after a particularly stressful day or to celebrate a birthday or a special success.

We add sugar to coffee, bake it into or favorite treats, and spoon it over our breakfast cereals. We love the stuff and we crave the stuff. And some people become addicted to it

Maureen Josephine

Hello there I’m Mojo  short for Maureen Josephine Before we go any further let me tell you a little about myself.

        
I am a mother of 5 and a Family Therapist with 25 years of experience helping older moms of teenagers and young women overcome the challenges 
of being a single parent. Nothing prepares people for dealing with issues such as Eating Disorders, Addiction, living with Alcoholism, or dealing with 
Depression anxiety and overwhelm. 
 
Financial and emotional problems can bring people to their knees.
Overwhelm sets in and so does fear-based Procrastination. This is a killer combination!
 
I care deeply about the clients I work with because I have dealt with many of the issues I help people  with. I do not believe in WOO WOO, but I do believe in taking massive ACTION, 
This is the only way to get unstuck and move forward. Let me show you how.
