A lot of people don't know how addicting sugar is. If you need help dieting in the new year you may just have to declare war.

We've had a war on alcohol, a war on drugs and a war on terror/ Is 2019 the year we declare war on sugar?

According to Web MD, the medical society doesn't buy into something called a "sugar addiction", people do face similar feelings as addicts do such as cravings and loss of control. Sugar is a treat to your brain and it affects every cell in a positive way.

With obesity, diabetes and other sugar induced illnesses is time we treat the white stuff like an enemy? Many are even going on sugar detoxes. It may be more like a drug that we thought.

One gym instructor has even gone as far as declaring war on sugar for the new year.
