The Fat Fight: Are you pouring on the pounds?

A Serious Sugar Shout-Out from Our Lady of Weight Loss. According to the American Heart Association (AHA) the average American will munch through, chow down and/or guzzle 22 teaspoons, or 355 calories of sugar today (and tomorrow and the next day)!
For those of you who are thinking, “Not me, I only put 2 teaspoons in my one cup of coffee in the morning,” think again!
Sugar is added to – geeze – just about every packaged food out there. Take a look at the labels and word up – if any of these words appear – you are ingesting sugar, big time!
corn sweetener
corn syrup
dextrose glucose
high fructose corn syrup
honey
maltose
malt syrup
molasses
sucrose
syrup

The biggest problem is that we are, on average, consuming 355 calories per day of empty calories that do absolutely nothing for us but rather work against us vs. nutrient rich calories that help us to burn bright and happy throughout the day. Sugar is associated with obesity, having high blood pressure, high levels of triglycerides, and oxidative stress and inflammation.
What to do?
Read labels! At the very least, own up to what you are doing to yourself!
Eliminate soft drinks and other sugar-sweetened beverages. Just one can of soda contains 130 calories and 8 teaspoons of sugar.
Steer clear of process foods! Go Fresh!
The Outer Limits!
The AHA suggests that women consume no more than 6 teaspoons per day (about 100 calories or 25 grams) of added sugar; and men no more than 9 teaspoons (about 150 calories or 37.5 grams).
