There are many reasons why we crave the sinful sugar. A typical health warrior’s creed is to fight off sugar in any arena. It is counterproductive and undermines your weight loss efforts. But not to discount sugar’s feel-good qualities, those tiny pockets of sweet bliss at times can take turns as your worst enemy and as your dearest friend. It can turn a person’s day from worst to better. Just a small bite here and a little there on your favorite candy bar and you’ll soon forget everything that made you feel bad. It is at some point a kind of love and hate tug of war. Have you ever wondered why this is so? Why do we find ourselves often weakening at the sight of sugar?
