Kick the Sugar Habit

By now, we’ve all heard how bad sugar is for us yet most of us still eat it. The average American consumes about 20 teaspoons of added sugar per day! That’s not counting the sugar naturally found in fruits & milk either. Sugar, regardless of its form, can have negative impact on your entire body. Too much sugar can not only lead to excess weight gain, it can also lead to inflammation of joints, kidney damage, type 2 diabetes or heart disease. So, how much is too much? Everyone’s tolerance is different however, it is recommended that adults & children consume no more than 5% or 25 grams (6 teaspoons) of sugar daily, for a 2,000 calorie diet. by Gina Stallone
