Sugar is very addictive, just like cigarette smoking and other unhealthy habits. Sugar addiction can be broken by following several different steps. The first step is to educate yourself on how much sugar is in the foods that you eat.
When you get home today look at the labels on the crackers in the pantry, the salad dressing in the frig, and see how many grams of added sugar there are in those foods. All labels must include a line for ADDED sugars. Tally up how many grams of sugar you eat in a typical day.
Is there a Recommended Daily amount for sugar (RDA)? The Daily Value for added sugars is 50 grams per day based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet. 50 grams a day is the equivalent of 12 teaspoons. That’s a lot! Think about 12 teaspoons piled up on a table.
