A Complete Guide to Sugar ...




The complete guide to sugar
By Franziska Spritzler, RD, medical review by Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt, MD

Franziska writes:
"Sugar has never been considered a healthy food, but it has still become a major part of our diet. Whether sugar is simply a source of “empty calories” or something more sinister has been an ongoing debate among nutrition experts. Learn all about sugar, the many ways it impacts health, and practical takeaways for decreasing your intake."

Her article gives a very good and in-depth look at sugar, covering such questions as:

What is sugar?
Is “natural” sugar better?
Sugar’s effects in your body
What is the recommended daily intake of sugar in the US?
Added sugar
Sugar and the obesity epidemic
The sugar industry
Sugar addiction
Visual and practical tools to reduce sugar in your diet
5-step action plan for reducing sugar intake


There is a lot of very good and interesting information with helpful tips, why not read the full article - you can find it here


All the best Jan

ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

(what a depressing article)

Never suggest to a Southerner un-sweet tea.

That s&*^ is only good for unstopping the sink

I went without sugar for over a decade. After I moved away from the city, it became too difficult. Sugar is added to so many things; it's crazy!

John R said...

A very interesting read. I tend to stay away from sugar, but I eat a lot of fruit. I knew fruit contained sugar, but not as much as the article suggests.
