The wellness community can argue all day long about whether sugar is good for us, whether it’s healthy in moderation, or whether it’s toxic for metabolic syndrome.

💡That’s only one side of the issue.

🧁The bigger issue (said an addiction neuroscientist) is that SOME people CAN BE addicted to foods, especially processed carbohydrates.

🚨And as Dr. Thompson says, for the people that rank high in food addiction:
🔻there will be NO PEACE
if you keep eating these addictive foods.

🍩So whether or not sugar and carbs are needed for hormones and thyroid health is just one aspect of the debate.

⚠️If you have a tendency to get out of control with sugar and highly processed carb-rich foods, you may want to see them more as a drug than a food.

Everyone is different.

🔎But given my history with disordered eating, I’m smart enough to NOT take advice from someone that has never had a food addiction.


👥And given that almost half of America is obese, I’m sure I’m not alone.

🍺Just like I’d never ask a former-alcoholic to have a drink on occasion, I will never ask a former sugar or carb-addict to have just one bite of carbs for hormone or thyroid health.
