More about the deadly sugar fix.

Following yesterday's entry about the problem with soft drinks...

The average American downs 22 teaspoons of sugar a day...and this astounding number does not include natural sugar found in food.

The American Heart Association recommends women consume no more than 6 teaspoons of added sugar a day, and men no more than 9.  We have (as everyone knows) become a nation of immediate gratification. No longer do people (particularly kids) wait for treats...every bite is now a treat. Unfortunately, those 'treats' are killing us slowly but surely, one sweet bite at a time.

Some American children are getting 20-40% of their daily calories from sugar ~ calories with no nutritional value whatsoever, but they do come with plenty of problems...Problems which are causing our kids to die a slower, sickly death. 

A message that is being repeated more and more these days: If Americans do not make drastic change to their diet today, this generation of children will be the first in American history to live sicker and die younger than their parents.

It is easier to cut down on sugar when you 'crowd it out' with fiber-rich foods like veggies, grains and fruit. Reducing your sugar intake will actually give you more energy so you can hopefully be less lazy with what you are putting into your (and possibly your family's) mouth.  Experts' advise reducing your sugar intake for 2 solid weeks ~ which is the time your body needs to wean itself off sweets and begin reaping the benefits of more energy, greater mental clarity and the wonderful weight loss that will naturally occur.

Watch this video by Dr. Vince Bellonzi. I really like this guy and love the way he explains & shares his knowledge.

 

As Dr. Bellonzi says...we need to eat foods closest to their natural form.
