Unfortunately, we know it, we love it, we eat it…it’s sugar! But do we truly know the effect it’s having on our body? Many may claim that “addiction” is a strong word when it comes to our intake of sugars, but what people don’t know is how serious it truly is. Our body and brain view sugar as a reward, when we consume it – whether it may be in our baked treats, coffee, candy or pop, opioids and dopamine are released. When dopamine is released the human body begins to feel a sense of “high,” making one repeat that same behavior just to feel that pleasurable high again. “Research shows that sugar can be even more addicting than cocaine,” says Cassie Bjork, R.D., L.D, founder of Healthy Simple Life. When a person foregoes withdrawals from their constant need for sugar, they may experience severe side effects such as headaches, tiredness, and irritable mood swings.

How Can You Stop Your Cravings for Sugar? Phentermine!

What exactly is phentermine you may ask? Phentermine was first introduced in 1959. It is an FDA approved appetite suppressant that is used to reduce your cravings for both sugars and carbohydrates in aid for weight loss while in turn, burning calories faster. Although, it is not a magic weight loss pill. When placed with the proper diet and nutrition, it is a great tool to both lose weight AND break your sugar addiction that you may be struggling with!

How Does Phentermine Work?

Phentermine causes the brain to release the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine in the hypothalamus region of the brain. This portion of the brain is located right about the brain stem and controls hunger. It is then “forcing” the body to become full more quickly, while decreasing hunger at the same time. As your body begins to eat less sugars and carbs, it also stops wanting and craving them..helping you maintain the weight that you will use while on the medication!
