Today, Michael and Dr. Hammerstedt of Wholist cover the dangers of food addiction, and more specifically, the dangers of sugar addiction. Michael talks about the dopamine reward system and the chemicals in the brain that make it difficult to "just stop" overeating sugars. We discuss "skill-power" over willpower, and realizing that you have to choose what you eat, when you eat it, and understand why you're eating it to regain control.
