Unless you already track your sugar intake and know exactly what types and how much sugar you consume, I bet you eat far more tablespoons of sugar per day than you think! Food manufacturers are sneaky and add in sugars for foods like orange juice and ketchup.

Some people may be surprised to learn just how much sugar they’re consuming, and it’s time they wake up! Refined sugar, white sugar, and high fructose corn syrup are not items to be eaten lightly. Added sugars likes these have been linked to heart problems, weight gain, leptin resistance, cancer, and addiction. The problem stems from our modern diet that relies so much on a demand for packaged, processed foods that can be eaten quickly and maintain a long shelf life. These products are often packed with way too much sugar.
