Live and Let Liver – Dr Oz Knows

My mind is a sponge
It craves the dopamine high
mops up sugar, yum
My mouth is a sponge
soaks up the tasty junk food
Each morsel and crumb
Liver is a sponge
mops up all carbohydrates
I am a bit dumb

Signs of addiction:  Constant cravings; Eating bowls of ice cream so that the amount of  fudge sauce evenly lasts before the ice cream is gone; Quickly devouring the entire bag of candy in the car so no one will see;  Making sure there’s no chocolate on your breath; Feeling guilty; Waking up every morning with determination that this day you will NOT eat sugar and carbohydrates.

I’ve known for years that I get the same neurochemical “high” from sugar and unrefined carbohydrates that a drug addict gets from drugs.  Research has confirmed what I’ve long suspected.  What I didn’t know is that my liver is suffering.   Click here to hear what Dr. Oz has to say:

P.S.  Does anyone think that picture reminds them of chocolate sauce on top of strawberry ice cream, a banana and pink whipped cream?
