I'm doing a bit of an experiment on this blog as well. The average American eats 178 pounds of sugar every year, compared to the 1930’s we ate 4 pounds per year. I consider myself an average American.
How else can they take the fat out of products and still make it taste good? By adding sugar or sugar substitute.
Have any of you cut out sugar for any length of time and want to tell me about your experience? I'm going to try it for 2 weeks, then slowly start adding some high fiber low gi carbohydrates. I'm hoping to free myself from artificial sugars, granola bars and other sweets. And looking forward to buttoning my jeans when the weather cools!!
