    "This data has come out in... the last 5 years, [that] sugar specifically down regulates [reduces the number of receptors] the same [dopamine] receptors... in the reward center [of the brain] as does all of these other addictive, abusive compounds [including heroin, cocaine, morphine, nicotine, alcohol and cannabis -- every single drug of abuse -- and it occurs with sugar, too.,]" notes Robert Lustig, MD, pediatric endocrinoligist from the University of California, San Francisco in the 7-part video series called “The Skinny on Obesity” (Episode 4).

    This causes you to develop a tolerance to feeling good when eating it, and then feelings of withdrawal when you stop eating it.

    Lustig notes that this takes about 3 weeks to occur.
