The Truth About Sugar -- Part 2
Nutritionists suggest that Americans should get only 10% of their calories from sugar. This equals 13.3 teaspoons of sugar per day, based on 2,000 calories. Yet, the current average is between 42-48 teaspoons of sugar per day!
How is this affecting our health? Considering that America is about #47 in health -- it was once #1 -- it’s important to have the facts. Find out more of the truth about sugar, including the difference between glucose, fructose and HFCS (high fructose corn syrup, which is added to so many popular foods). Also, learn why fat-free foods actually make you fatter, and the effect of sugar substitutes on our health. Most important, get the answer to the question most “sugar addicts” (and people who just enjoy sweets) have on their mind -- is it possible to satisfy our sweet tooth without making ourselves vulnerable to degenerative diseases? You’ll find out all of this…and more, on today's show with Health Guru, Beverly Nadler.
