Sugar consumption causes dopamine to be released in the pleasure center of the brain, but after 3 weeks, a tolerance builds up to this which is exactly the same thing that happens with all addictive and abused drugs including heroin, cocaine, morphine, nicotine, alcohol and cannabis 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.
