Are You a Sugar Addict?

Can’t get enough sweet stuff? You could be addicted to sugar, says Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of the book Beat Sugar Addiction NOW! But realizing you’re hooked doesn’t mean you have to give sugar up.  Instead, Dr. Teitelbaum says, “You have to figure out what’s causing your sugar cravings, then treat that underlying cause. Not only will your sugar cravings go away, but you’ll feel dramatically better overall.” To find out where you stand, take the following quizzes (adapted from Beat Sugar Addiction NOW!) to see if you're addicted to sugar and pinpoint your sugar addict type (from Quick-Fix Sugar Fanatic and Sweet Tooth Soother to Sugar Self Medicator and Hormonal Sugar Hunter). Then, learn the life-changing tips you need to feel better fast.
