Like I said... its everywhere, and while it may seem easy to avoid, you know... like dodging all aisles filled with brightly colored bags of chocolate.... it's the other aisles that you need to be worried about... the aisles that may seem healthy, but in all reality have just as much, if not more sugar than the chocolate covered marshmallow Easter Bunnies that you strategically looked away from moments earlier...
It's why America is so fat.
and worst of all...
Take for example this cereal breakfast bar below:
- low sodium
- low fat
- high fiber
- high in vitamins
You could eat this delicious processed cookie:
and consume 2 grams LESS sugar than the granola bar.
Or this flavored yogurt for 3 additional grams of sugar:
flavored yogurt: 19 grams
Don't let the terms organic, natural or low fat fool you. Just because it may seem healthy at first glance... doesn't mean it is healthy.... read the nutrition facts - all of them.
A recent study revealed that most people only read the first 5 lines on the Nutrition Facts.
Sugar content is typically line 9.
Do me and your body a favor and take the extra time at the grocery store to find the hidden sugar in products before you buy them.
On that note, I'm off to make some oatmeal....
