Recently someone requested information regarding why sugar is bad and I enthusiastically responded with some quick info from my blog. Since we are in the full swing of Sugar Season, I thought I would repost these entries in case you need extra motivation to not over consumer and trash your body.
The posts are below. For what it is worth, this new CBC documentary, The Secrets of Sugar, reports that sugar consumption in the US is now 26 teaspoons a day, up from the 22.6 teaspoons I cite in a post below.
Colson and I took what we learned from the documentary to understand how much sugar is in my favorite ice cream, pictured below. Yikes!
Good luck this holiday season! Think Slight Edge!
Now for the scary stuff.
