Sugar sensitivity is not a syndrome that many of us would commonly consider having, but in fact it could be the cause of our everyday feelings. For example, one day we may feel confident while other times we may feel this confidence has slipped away--but for no apparent reason. The answer to these unexplained feelings could be that you are sugar sensitive. The author defines sugar sensitivity as "the body chemistry responding to sugars and certain carbohydrates differently than the next person." She continues: "This biochemical difference can have a huge effect on our moods and behaviour--how you feel is linked to what you eat and when you eat it."
