For all of you determined to ‘stay off sugar’ in 2019, this post is a must read for you.
I’ve heard it a million times and I’m guessing you have too … you might even be guilty of saying it yourself:
“I’m off of sugar right now”
“No sugar this week!”
“I can’t have that, there’s sugar in it”
Chances are if you gave up sugar completely, it was either short-lived or you weren’t really avoiding sugar. As a nutrition professional, I see many people say they aren’t eating sugar when their diet is actually loaded with hidden sources. These include breads, tomato sauce, fruit drinks, salad dressing, cereal and even ketchup. Sugar is typically added to these foods to create a more pleasurable eating experience.
