Day 357- Nutrition Bite

The truth is that most Americans eat badly. We obtain 7 percent of our calories from soft drinks, which is more than we get from vegetables. The top food group by caloric intake is “sweets”, and one-third of the nation’s adults are now obese. The organic food question is a secondary one. It’s not unimportant, but it’s not the primary issue in the way Americans eat. http://www.nytimes.com/2009/03/22/weekinreview/22bittman.html?hp

Sugar Preacher's Experience
As discussed in this article, the problem is not organic vs. non organic. But the issue is the American diet. As stated, most of the calories consumed are "sweets". Recently, I have been craving something sweet after every meal. This craving could be psychological because I know my 365-day sugar shun is coming to an end. I'll probably continue with an occasional sweet here and there.
