Break the Sugar Habit - it may save your life

If you’re like millions of other Americans, you’ve tried restricting your carbs over the past few years.  While the health benefits of this are much debated, the fact that we need to cut down on added sugar in our diets is not.  

Americans eat an average of about 22 to 30 teaspoons of added sugar each day–
that’s 2/3 of a cup of sugar!

The American Heart Association came down hard on sugar at their annual meeting this year declaring that 180,000 deaths world wide – 25,000 in the United States – are caused by sugar each year.  

Check out my latest interview with Harvard Women’s Health Watch, for simple tips to reduce added sugars in your diet.

By making smarter food choices, you can eat less sugar without feeling deprived.
