Do you read the ingredient lists on foods you eat? Not the white box, but the actual written out list of ingredients? Did you know that sugar appears in a vast majority of packaged foods? It can be listed as “sugar” or as many other names…and it is put into everything from bread and spaghetti sauce to salsa and baby foods.
A suggested goal for this week is to read every food label you purchase and eat. Keep track of added sugar and try to avoid it when you can. Up until today, have you kept track of your sugar intake? If so, what has it been like? If not, how much sugar do you think you consume on a daily basis? Write down your answers and see how they compare to the actual ingredients and sugar content written on the labels.
