A more balanced blood sugar level equals less cravings and less hunger.
This is due to the fact that when you hit low blood sugar levels, the body will actively seek out ways to bring those sugar levels back up.
Thus pushing you towards high energy/ sugary foods. dopamine and other hormones that are triggered by refined sugar also play a part in your cravings.

Consuming refined sugar can rapidly fluctuate the blood sugar levels which can worsen mood disorders. Research has shown that cutting out refined sugars from your diet, reduces risk of depression.
Countries with high sugar intake also have correspondingly high rates of depression. Drugs and sugar both flood the brain with the same “feel-good” chemical dopamine. Which can cause addiction, dependency and irritability, if refined sugars are over consumed.
Refined sugar has also been known to increase risk to those who already have anxiety. Sugar isn’t a direct cause of anxiety, but due to the release of Adrenaline and Insulin, this can heighten the feelings of anxiety.
