Leaving Added Sugar Back In 2007
read labels, watch what you eat and avoid added sugar

We are now a couple of weeks into the New Year. Let's kick things off right by checking the ingredients lists of the foods we eat for added sugars. Foods and beverages that contain large amounts of added sugars are usually relatively high in calories, low in nutrients and will make you fat.

The USDA defines added sugars as those that have been added to foods and beverages during processing or home preparation. Some of the most common added sugars you will find in an ingredients list are honey, molasses, fruit juice concentrate, brown sugar, corn sweetener, sucrose, lactose, glucose, high-fructose corn syrup and malt syrup. Take not that Stevia is not mentioned. So, get on the Stevia train!

According to a US survey data, Americans each ate a whopping 74 pounds of added sugars per year. That equals 23 teaspoons of added sugars, or the equivalent of 345 calories, each day. Let's do the math. Over a year this adds up to 125,925 calories. There are 2000 calories to a pound. By simple math you can see that eating added sugar can put 63 lbs of fat on you. Scary, huh?

When looking at prepared foods, check the Nutritional Facts Label under Sugars for the amount of sugar in the product. Then look at the ingredients list for added sugars. Remember that ingredients are listed in order by weight, so the higher up in the list an ingredient appears, the more the product contains. This will help you decide if a food has too many added sugars.

By cutting down on added sugars, you will be eating fewer calories while eating healthier foods. And you will see the results on your waistline. One sure fire way to cut the sugar out is to watch sugary soft drinks. What we recommend is to replace them with water, or stevia sweetened lemonade, limeade or unsweetened cranberry juice with stevia. Simply mix 12-16 ounces of water with the juice of one lemon or lime with a dash of Steviva Brand Stevia Powder.

Have an excellent day.
