You Can Eliminate Added Sugar From Your Diet in Less Than a Month. Here’s How

Dieticians have never looked at sugar with healthy eyes. Many heart diseases, cancer, and other chronic ailments are credited to the excessive consumption of sugar.

For some, eating sweets and sugary food can be just a matter of taste. On the other hand, for others, it can be a gruesome habit that he can not quit so easily. In either case, overconsumption is bad health. Here is the problem. Compared to the previous generations, we are the only generation who eats 20 spoons of sugar every day. Whether you like it or not, these 20 teaspoons of sugar are worth 300 calories. In contrast, the American Heart Association has a recommended sugar consumption volume of 5 teaspoons each day. Notice, it is 4 times higher than the recommended volume.

Where does this sugar come from, you may ask? Well, it is in everything that we eat and drink. Think about it: The morning coffee that you drink, fast foods, and other fruits that you consume have one thing in common: They contain sugar. Together, this makes up the abnormal amount of 20 teaspoons of sugar consumption every day. But the main question remains: How to eliminate added sugar from the diet? Well, there are certain steps that you can follow and achieve the normal sugar consumption milestone.
