Natalie Castro, Registered Dietitian with Baptist Health South Florida, explains sugar stimulates our pleasure responses and our reward responses in our brain. “We have done PET scans and looked at brain activity when we are having sugar, and it responds just the same way as alcohol and cocaine or drugs.”
About sweets, she says the only thing is that they are not part of a food group, they are extra calories that provide no nutrients.
