This sounds like such a simple change, that you wouldn’t think it would add up to that much weight. But I guess that’s really how much sugar we all tend to have in our normal diets. According to WikiAnswers, the average American consumes 156 lbs of sugar a year! That’s a little over 31 five pound bags! (I can still remember that Biggest Loser episode when they started pouring out all the sugar we consume for a visual aid! It just kept pouring out of the trucks!)
Examples of items with cane sugar in it are soda, sweet tea/coffee, cake, cookies, and even white bread. Only eat multi-grain bread. You can get “natural sugar” from fruits and vegetables.
Always be sure to check with your physician before making any major diet changes. This is especially important if you have diabetes and need to regulate sugar-levels.
