Day 28-Nutritional Bite

Limit your refined sugars! The U.S. Department of Agriculture advises most people to limit daily sugar intake to 10-12 teaspoons or 47-57 grams a day. In 2000, we ate an average of 31 teaspoons a day. Most of the sugars are from sweetened drinks. A single 12-ounce can of soda has as much as 13 teaspoons of sugar. Dr. Mehmet Oz shows some great visuals of the amount of sugar in soda. Click below and then on video "Fighting Obesity" for more information.

Sugar Preacher's Experience
I am close to celebrating the month mark for my un-refined sugar diet. My blood sugar levels are more stabilized, and  I feel great. You can take the challenge and try the diet! I still crave sweets, but fresh fruits and other natural sweets do the trick!
