Addiction to sweets


The accelerated pace of life, the spirit of competition and excessive personal and family expectations held by most of today's girls and adult women under stress. They eventually become chronically tense, anxious and worried. From such a mental condition resulting accumulation of numerous negative emotions such as fear, anger, rage and guilt.


Given that in today's society culturally unacceptable to express such emotions in front of others, to be a girl or a woman, learn artfully concealed, as a learned education. Such an act is costing dearly, because when the House finds itself confronted with it, all this repressed negative energy begins to seek out, threatening the "explosion."

In those moments, bar of chocolate, cream cakes, filled rolls or biscuits become best friends and comforter, as it successfully removes tension and frustration, bringing calm and comfort.

Unfortunately, the actions of these sweet "sedation" is short and fleeting, for 15-20 minutes, but the tension is growing again and there is a desire for a new batch of fresh food and bliss again. Thus, today more and more women fresh food "cures" your anxiety and replaces their unmet needs.

Everyone knows that there is a dependence on alcohol, nicotine, drugs and some medications, but not many people think that there is a dependence on food. However, this dependency really exists, but not on any food. In fact it is always the same one type of food - one that in itself must contain carbohydrate.

Carbohydrate foods, especially one made up of "fast" carbohydrates, white flour and sugar, the body launches a complex biochemical events. Very soon after taking such foods leads to abrupt changes in the levels of certain chemical substances in the brain called neurotransmitters. Among these is the serotonin, which is growing rapidly after the consumption of carbohydrates.

Jump serotonin levels in the brain leads to the rapid emergence of calm and a sense of satisfaction. This eventually becomes a pleasant mood and daily need carbohydrates intake volume gradually increasing.

Craving for carbohydrates can be psychologically quite well compared to the irresistible need for ever greater quantities of alcohol or nicotine in smokers or alcoholics

In dependence on carbohydrate chemistry of the body and psyche of a complex interdependent play the game.

On one side is the "happiness hormone" serotonin in the brain, on the other hand is extremely important hormone insulin, which controls the amount of sugar level in blood. Thus, serotonin and insulin keep their relationship fresh round of addiction and ┼íkrobnoj food.

The affected person loses gradually control over their eating and overeating becomes a victim ATTACKS.First, the mood so quickly, and later became its metabolic problem, because the sudden and unpleasant fluctuations in blood sugar levels can be replaced only with an ever growing amount of sugary foods.Overall diet becomes chaotic and the person goes from one extreme to the other - or hungry or overeat with carbohydrates. The result is either constant or bulimia weight gain when food is eaten during the binge attacks ejected from the body by vomiting or laxatives.

People who developed dependence on carbohydrates usually have a genetic predisposition to weight gain as well as low levels of serotonin in the brain. For such persons weight gain progresses rapidly and eventually becomes a very serious health problem.

Today there are medical methods to dependence on carbohydrates successfully stopped and under control, and this then leads to the loss of excess fatty tissue and correcting biochemical disorders in the body.

Important parts of each program are nutrition maps, training and exercise, along with specific psychotherapy.

Still on a daily basis with severe mental and physical consequences of this addiction that is rapidly expanding, especially among girls and young women. It always proves once again how much carbohydrate addiction a serious medical problem that is not yet fully recognized or taken seriously enough.
