Sugar Quiz

Taken from Nancy Appleton’s ‘Lick The Sugar Habit’ book.

“Are you a sugarholic? Is your body giving you any signals?

The following quiz will help you determine how pervasive refined sugar is in your lifestyle, and what effect it is having on your body. Refined sugar includes sucrose, honey, fructose, glucose, dextrose, levulose, maltose, raw sugar, turbinado sugar, maple sugar, galactose, brown sugar, dextrine, barley malt, rice syrup, corn sweetener, and corn syrup. All of these are simple sugars. They take very little time to digest and get into the blood stream, where they perform the same disturbance to your body chemistry as table sugar. These substances are found in donuts, processed foods, jams and jellies, ice cream, candy bars, packaged cereals, soft drinks, ketchup, beer, chewing gum, and any product that lists sugar among its ingredients.”

Sugar Quiz

  • If you answered “false” to more than four of the statements, chances you are probably sugar-sensitive. You are probably allergic to sugar and also addicted to it- the same way an alcoholic is addicted to alcohol. You crave sugar, have withdrawal symptoms when you don’t get it, and probably feel better for a short time after you’ve eaten it. If you are eating sugar to feel better, you are actually making your condition worse. If you answered “false” to four statements or fewer, it doesn’t mean you don’t have a problem with sugar. You may not be addicted to it, but perhaps you don’t quite realize just how much sugar you are eating.
