Are there any medications that can help stop sugar cravings? Do you think sugar addiction is a chemical problem? Ie too low seratonin so you binge?
As far as I know, there is no magic pill that can stop sugar cravings. However, there is a product that will temporarily kill your taste for sweet things. It was reviewed on this site. Watch the video review.
As for Serotonin levels, “a person low in Serotonin will be inclined to consume greater amounts of sugar in an attempt to increase Serotonin production and this may lead to sugar addiction.” (Source: The Hypoglycemic Health Association of Australia)
The only way to “beat sugar addiction” is to recognize it, own it (or own up to it) and avoid all refined and added sugars.
