    I don’t eat sugar no wonder why my wife thinks i need an attitude adjustment.

  • @rjsophia3712 says:

    I eat very little sugar. Strangely enough, this is exactly how I feel whenever I play pickle ball! I say play more pickle ball!

  • @joiningjal2145 says:

    Sugar is a drug

    • @kt6332 says:

      I totally agree and it is the one and only addiction I have and it is slowly killing me. I know they say just cold turkey and quite but I’ve done the so many times.

  • @DJM1NDHACK3R says:

    Tru story. Choco and cookies like 50% Suger this days. I dont smoke and use no alcohol. But i still getting high from super sometimes..

    Except the billion$$$ industry leaders n marketers

  • @growermo940 says:

    I love endorphins

  • @YoJugg732 says:

    I literally have been telling my friends that if you watch the sugars in sugary cold cereals they’re almost all the same. The companies know how to create that addiction

    Look at the reaction of a toddler given a bite of its first birthday cake.
    It’s insane.
    Thanks for sharing this.
    Peace love and blessings!

  • @Avengedsevenfoldrocks says:

    Being an alcoholic/ addict I know all about that endorphin rush and I’ve been off of alcohol for 5 years and been doing the keto diet for close to a year.
    I quit drinking coffee in January because I had to have some kind of creamer and sugar in there and have not had it since; except for recently I started a little bit and then it was a little bit more and now I am enjoying the Wawa coffee with hazelnut creamer again 10 g of sugar; wtf?

    • @RPGetz says:

      It’s a slippery slope!! I went from candy coffee to just coffee with regular half and half, and it’s been a good compromise. You still get the bit of sugar from the milk, but without that, “gimmie more” feeling from the sugar. Good luck!!

    • @jsstar76 says:

      Congrats on your sobriety!

    • @PC-yp5dl says:

      It’s common for us recovering from alcohol to become almost addicted to sugar. When alcohol is oxidized in the liver, it also becomes sugar. So our bodies get used to having that sugar from the alcohol. So when we get sober, we’re highly vulnerable to sugar as our bodies desire as a very shallow substitute for booze.

    • @dontfit6380 says:

      Bulletproof hazelnut Creamer 0g sugar

    • @PC-yp5dl says:

      I’ve been wanting to try this bullet proof coffee

  • @Lanie-sl9ne says:

    Just hearing you say the wow this is just delicious also does something to my brain! So what is that? Your voice making that statement makes me feel something too!

    Thanks for the information. You’re my favorite doctor ever!

  • @catherinegay1404 says:

    I was off sugar for months..then the holidays came….it makes me VERY emotional, and goofy. Can’t wait to get back on keto!

  • @kayleneemery8217 says:

    Great analogy Eric…blessings and appreciation from Sydney Australia.

  • @calholli says:

    If you look around.. You can see who’s addicted — by their mass.

  • @lisawende5161 says:

    Here’s the problem, they are putting sugar in what is thought of as savory foods, so you become addicted to them too. Bliss point. Got to read labels, know all the names of sugar, or eat whole foods 🤔

  • @ruthvillalva1786 says:

    What you said is very true. That’s why, when you are unhappy and you eat your favorite creamy delicious ice cream, you feel better. Instant gratification!!!

  • @velinadolor2353 says:

    Thank you Dr BERG. For sharing your knowledge

  • @Debbiesdilemmas says:

    It’s so obvious to me that sugar is addictive. With eliminating as much sugar as possible within a few weeks I didn’t crave it anymore. I’m happy to sit back and go without dessert when everyone around me partakes.

  • @cindyrhodes says:

    Most addictive substance!!!!! I wish the FDA would recognize it as an addictive substance. Thank you, Dr. BERG!

  • @mariaferraro6416 says:

    I have always had a crave for sugary food… especially in the evening and even with a “full belly”.
    Since I have started (one month now) a keto program, no more cravings and I feel like I do not long any sweet food. It worked so unexpected to me!

  • @worldgravityresources1037 says:

    I have a gf that every year during Easter she tells me she gave up “sugar” for lent………while she’s sipping on a large glass of wine!!!🤣. True story!
