How sugar affects the brain

How sugar affects the brain

When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine -- an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be enjoyed in moderation.

    Real Meal Revolution

    The Banting Manifesto

    It's not a diet.
    It is a food revolution.

    About Me

    I’m David Daffey and I love food, along with swimming, cycling and running (that’s right…I’m a triathlete). In fact, I am an Ironman triathlete (multiple times) and this year in 2018, will be travelling to Kona, Hawaii to compete in the coveted Ironman World Championships!  I live in Sydney, Australia and have a degree in Psychology and Human Movement Studies. I am also a qualified Triathlon Australia triathlon coach.

    Most importantly, I became a Certified Banting Coach in 2016 with The Real Meal Revolution and Dr Timothy Noakes.   After regaining my own “health” after decades of sugar addiction and suffering from what I now know to be chronic inflammation, I now teach people like you how to get off Struggle Street and follow “A Banter’s Life”.
