Sugar consumption is linked to weight gain, chronic obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and many more health issues. It is important to understand the two types of sugars.
Natural sugars - found naturally in fruits and dairy products
Added sugars - sugars that are added into foods, beverages, flavorings, syrups
You should not be afraid of an apple because of its natural sugar, while you may want to avoid a soda due to the added sugar it contains.
Decrease added sugar consumption by reducing or removing processed and packaged foods, candies, and sodas from your diet. Liquids containing flavorful syrups are generally overlooked but contain some of the highest concentrations of added sugars. Recommended total amount of added sugar for men is 9g and for women is 6g per day .
These celebrities have publicly vowed to completely remove added sugar from their diet:
Reduce or avoid sugar as much as possible - especially in the morning and prior to bed.
Sugar in the morning can lead to an energy crash later in the day.
Sugar in the evening can lead to lower quality sleep.
