Sugar Addiction Test - Am I Affected?

Are you a sugar junkie and addicted to sugar? Find out with this sugar addiction test!

Do you like to eat chocolate or other sweets? Do you find it difficult to stop after the first bite? You often eat more than you intended and suffer from it, no longer free to be able to decide how much sweets you eat?

Then you are probably just like me addicted to sugar.

If you want to know whether (and if so, how severely) you are affected by sugar addiction, the following sugar addiction test can help you.

For a quick test, answer the questions from test 1. If you answer “Yes” at least three times, you can use the sugar addiction test 2 to find out how severe your sugar addiction is.

Sugar addiction test 1: am I addicted to sugar?

If you want to find out if you are addicted to sugar, first answer the following questions.

  • Do you eat sweets, pasta made from white flour (bread, pasta, pizza, cake, etc.), chips or other fried things every day?
  • Do you often eat not because you are hungry, but because you want to feel better (e.g. after an argument, after a stressful day or out of boredom)?
  • Do you often have cravings and cravings for sweets?
  • Do you get restless, in a bad mood or aggressive if you don't get what you crave?
  • Is it difficult for you to stop snacking after the first biscuit, the first piece of chocolate?
  • Do you blame yourself afterwards and do you suffer from a guilty conscience?
  • Do you sometimes hide packaging, purchase slips and secretly nibble so that others do not notice, because you would be uncomfortable if they knew what and how much you are eating?
  • Do you often resolve that everything will be different from tomorrow, do you put yourself on a diet, but then fail to put your project into practice?
  • Does your weight fluctuate by more than 3 kg?
  • Would you like to lose weight, but you can't because cravings and cravings are too powerful?
  • Do your thoughts revolve around food and weight?
  • Was at least one of your parents addicted to alcohol or sugar?

If you answered “yes” to more than three of these questions, you are probably prone to sugar addiction. To find out more precisely how strongly you are affected by this topic and whether you are actually a sugar junkie, take the following in-depth test on sugar addiction.

Sugar addiction test 2: how addicted am I? A self-test

I have compiled the following questions to the best of my knowledge and belief. They should help you to better assess how badly you are affected by sugar addiction.

Please note that the topic of sugar addiction is not officially recognized and therefore there are no official guidelines for assessing sugar addiction. The following test is therefore only intended as a guide and cannot be understood as an officially valid classification.

For the self-test, tick one answer for each question and then add the points together. Based on the evaluation that you will find after the test, you will then find out how high your sugar addiction potential is, or whether you are already in the middle of it. Have lots of fun with it!
