Americans get double of what they need in sugars. Half of the sugar comes from natural sources, so trying to cut back on sugar starts cutting back on added sugards. What should you aim for to cut back on:

  • Sweetened beverages take 46% of the added sugars: sodas, sports drinks are favorite here. Sugar free alternatives are available, just use them. See also the earlier post on Vitamin Water containing loads of sugars.
  • Baked goods like cookies are the next source.
  • Cereals: the ‘boring’, stamped grains that actually are the cheapest variety, contains the least sugars. Options that look healthy and dark sometimes have unexpected high levels of sugar!

These kinds of products blow out every good effort to keep fit and slim. And they are soooo easy to avoid or to replace!
