The average modern person consumes 46 teaspoons of sugar every day. That comes out to roughly 175 pounds of sugar each year.
And it’s no wonder, since sugar industry is big business. They sneak sugar into any product that they can.
Go through the foods in your home and you’ll see that “unnecessary” sugar has been added to everything from ketchup and spaghetti sauce to crackers, oatmeal, peanut butter and even ‘healthy’ items like weight loss bars.
Where does this leave you?
You are in a unique position. Your personal judgment determines the foods that you eat and the foods that you avoid. It is my hope that you approach sugar with new eyes.
While all other foods offer you caloric energy PLUS some nutritional benefit, sugar doesn’t. Sugar is simply caloric energy with a sweet habit forming taste, and a hoard of health risks such as…
- Sugar creates false hunger (as a result of the insulin rush and then ensuing plummet in your blood sugar levels), which makes you overeat.
- Sugar in excess is stored as fat (after your liver has no more room to store it, sugar is converted to fat and deposited on your belly, thighs, hips and the backs of your arms).
This means a constant struggle with your weight in which you never seem to achieve your ideal size.
Use your judgment wisely and limit your sugar consumption – you’ll love the benefits of low sugar living.
While you’re checking out nutrition labels for sugar content be on the lookout for the following names that all describe refined sugar:
* High fructose corn syrup
* Organic sugar
