Watch Out For THESE TERRIBLE Sugars

We all know that our bodies are built in the kitchen and any health coach or personal trainer worth his/her salt will tell you that. With this in mind, it is important to know exactly what you are consuming and how much of it.

If you are the average person, you may be consuming more than seven times the maximum amount of your daily-recommended sugar intake. Unless you are eating only fruits and vegetables all day, everyday, you are probably consuming more sugar than you should without even knowing it.

According to the American Heart Association, the safe amount of sugar to consume is three teaspoons or 15-grams. But in truth, most of us are actually consuming about 22-teaspoons or 110 grams.

Most Americans start out their days with a sugary orange juice, which typically has more sugar per ounce than you can find in a coke. In addition, they may eat sugary cereals, candy, a sugar based caffeinated coffee drink, a doughnut… And this is not by accident – the margin advertising companies have is growing daily and they are using your children to force you into buying more and more sugary foods.

You are probably the health conscious type who is very aware of what you consume and even takes time to read labels. Yet, it is hard to calculate how much sugar you are consuming when you don’t even know that you are looking for.

In an effort to help you make even better informed choices, I have compiled a list of different names for sugar that you will find in your daily foods.

Below is a fun, printable poster of all the different (and might I add sneaky) names for sugar. Did you know that over 80% of the products in the grocery story have added sugar?

Crazy, right?!

These sneaky names are TERRIBLE for your entire body and wellbeing (with the exception of small amounts of raw honey, pure maple syrup and pure stevia on occasion). With this fun poster, it is my hope that you are now armed and empowered with information that will help you make better choices for you and your family.
