The average American eats approximately 1,500 pounds of food every year. Of that, 160 pounds are primarily sugar. Sounds crazy, right? Most people don’t even realize how much sugar they consume.
Government did an amazing job in disguising the amount of sugar in products by requiring printing of nutritional information in grams. Most Americans have no idea how much a gram is, so when they pick up a can of soda that contains 40 grams of sugar, they don’t even think twice before drinking it. And that’s exactly what soda industry wants you to do! But what if the label said that it contained almost 10 teaspoons of sugar? If you saw someone putting 10 teaspoons of sugar into their coffee, you’d think they were crazy, but that is exactly how much people consume in a typical 12-ounce can. But what about 64-ounce fountain drink that they sell at a movie theater? It’s almost two cups of sugar!
That is a very sad truth. Thankfully most people are aware of sugar effects on the body and try to limit it in their diet. But what about the hidden sugars like high fructose corn syrup, glucose, fructose, lactose, dextrose, sucrose, galactose, maltose and many others? You can find many of them even in “sugar-free” products.
That’s why this week Shawn Stevenson sheds light on this important issue.
