Food Porn doesn't have calories..This dangerous substance isn't just found in your sugar shaker- sugar is in places you'll never imagine, like your peanut-butter, bread, sauces and yogurt; in fact, the average American eats 130 pounds of sugar a year! Ditching dessert isn't just going to do the trick; restaurants sneak sugar into savory dishes, to amplify it's taste, keeping you hooked. Dr. Lustig recommends that men should not consume more than 150 calories of added sugars a day and women, just 100. Thank god looking at
Now you don't need to ban all sugar from your diet- I mean, what's the point of life without a little bit of sweet stuff? Just try to stay balanced and not overdo it. With portion control , it's fine to have dessert every night, just stay active and try to eat as many natural sugars, like fruit and honey, as possible. One of my favorite desserts when I'm craving something sweet are frozen grapes with a bit of dark chocolate. Artificial sweeteners aren't the solution either- they are filled with dangerous chemicals linked with causing cancer. Dr. Lustig's key word was "overeat," so you can make your cake and eat it too (just not the whole entire thing) and you're addiction will be under control.
