I have a super sweet tooth; it’s one of my weaknesses. Sugar is one of the worst addictions and the most prevalent among many people and a lot of us don’t realize the damage this sweet poison is wreaking on our bodies.
Sugars occur naturally in foods, especially fruits, but its added sugar that we are referring to here. Even with fruits, if you are watching your weight, you need to be careful about the servings you consume. This is unlike vegetables that pack fewer calories and you can still get away with bulking up on them.
If you are wondering what I meant by added sugar, know that bottle of coke? You don’t want to know how much sugar was packed in it. Even the “innocent” Caprisone and Ribena you give your kids are sweetened. Processed foods like cookies, cakes, sweets and others are also culprits.
