We Eat More Than We Think!
The only thing good about sugar is…it tastes good! After that, it’s all downhill… it’s high in calories, provides only a brief increase in energy, and greatly increases the growth of bacteria and tooth decay potential.
When Eskimos lived a sugar-free diet, their teeth were perfect. No cavities! Once whalers and traders introduced them to a Western diet, tooth decay skyrocketed.
So, while you may not think that you’re eating too much in your diet, beware of hidden sources and other sweet substitutes.
Hidden Sugar Sources
- Cough syrups
- Yogurt with fruit
- Breakfast cereals
- Fruit juice
- Ketchup and many other condiments
- Preservatives in canned foods
Other Forms of Sugar
- Agave Nectar
- High Fructose Corn Syrup
- and many others
