Here’s another great post by Samantha on why it’s extremely important to not eat sugar. I didn’t explain the medical/science reasons in my previous post on how damaging sugar is on our systems... please take this seriously!
If you can make one change in your diet…eliminate sugar or at least significantly reduce your intake! I know this seems like a golden rule of eating healthy but most of us do not realize exactly how much refined sugar we’re eating!
Did you know that refined sugar was introduced in 1750 and the average person ate only ten pounds of sugar per year. By 1985 that number had risen to 124 pounds. Today that number has reached a whopping ONE HUNDRED AND FIFTY POUNDS! YUCK!
Most people cannot even begin to comprehend consuming this much sugar because they do not take processed foods into consideration. So it’s not just that piece of cake you ate at the birthday party or the ice cream cone you treated yourself to. Sugar is literally in practically every single processed food ..especially in the form of high-fructose corn syrup.
