THERE’S SUGAR ADDED TO ALMOST EVERYTHING!

I try to prepare my food as much as possible.  Food in restaurants and in the middle of the grocery store (think packaged and does not need refrigeration) are notorious for being processed with added sugar/fat/salt.  Even things called “low-fat” are often loaded with sugar to compensate.

Check out this website, which lists the sugar content of many foods… some will surprise you!  Bottom line:  make it yourself!

  2. Greetings! I AM so proud of you. It takes courage to tell the truth about sugar and corn syrup. The sugar industry is not beyond sending assassins after both of us. Watch your back!
    They have us addicted and that is where they want us all! They have no interest whatsoever in anyone’s health.
