Are you one of those people who adores sugar treats and just can’t get enough of them? Is your body giving you any warning signals?
The average person eats over ten pounds of sugar each and every month—nearly 4.5 cups per week, or 30-33 teaspoonfuls every day. That’s over twenty percent of our daily caloric intake spent on a refined food that upsets body chemistry and has literally no nutritional value. Refined sugar is 99.4% to 99.7% pure calories—it contains no vitamins, minerals, or proteins, just simple carbohydrates.
