Everyone loves sugar. Yes we tend to love something sweet. May be it is because sugar is identical to energy in our body. The mood of us will be good if we have enough sugar in our body. When the amount of sugar in our blood drops to a certain level, our mood will also change. Then we will try to eat and get some sugar again. It is like drug addition right?

So what is the Sugar Addicts' Diet? The basic concept of the diet is to break the sugar addition. As mentioned, our mood will change when our blood glucose level changes. The idea of the diet is to prevent this kind of mood swinging so that you will not want to get more sugar. Yet it is quite difficult for use to prevent the mood swinging due to the changes in sugar level in our blood stream. In fact, some people do not really know that they are taking sugar because of the addition to it.

In fact, the diet is taking reference from the Glycemic Index. The Glycemic Index is a system which rank the foods based on the contents of the sugars of the foods. A high index means the sugar contents of the food will be released to the blood stream very fast. And a low index means the sugar will be released very slowly. As a result, you have to replace food of high index with food with low index if you take this diet.

As a matter of fact, you should be well aware that you should not take sweets and soft drinks when you are on diet. However, one thing you may not know is that a lot of other foods such as some sauces and yogurts also have high sugar contents. This is the importance of the Glycemic Index.

However, it is believe that the diet is more like a choice of lifestyle. It is true that you can lose weight if you follow the eating plan. However, the plan may not help if you have some target about weight loss. For example, if you want to lose ten pounds in three weeks, it may be better for you to go for other dieting plans. It is because how fast one can lose weight under this eating plan is not know!
