  • Whether you are trying to lose weight or not, you should not be consuming added sugar.
  • Although refined sugar is generally considered a commodity and is essentially unnecessary in any diet, some people, but certainly not all, can consume a certain amount and still be relatively healthy.
  • You should not be consuming any sugar.
  • No Sugar. Just great foods with natural sugar in them. LIke carrots, onions, broccoli, apples, etc. The GREASTEST health problem in the world today is added sugar. Fat people, diabetics and on and on. We are spoiled people and we are living the great health lie. We eat chocolate and candy and ice cream with no limits. What a joke. Historians will look back and laugh at us. We are foolish people.
  • Sugar in moderation, enhances flavor and is essential to many recipes. However, excessive consumption of sugar can cause health problems.
  • Some recent recommendations suggest not more than 100 calories worth (6 teaspoons) a day for a woman and not more than 150 calories worth (9 teaspoons) for a man. However, you still run health risks with these amounts.
  • In addition, teaspoons of sugar are added/hidden in foods. Here are some examples:
  1. 8 oz of fruit flavored yogurt has approximately 6 teaspoons of sugar added
  2. one cup of frosted grain cereal has approximately 3 teaspoons
  3. one 12 oz can of soda or pop has approximately 8 teaspoons of sugar
  • You should not be consuming any added sugar. You do not need added sugar for health. If you feel unable to manage without something sweet, use a sugar substitute called stevia.
