All sugars are the same?
It's time to cut through the confusion about sugar!
The dieting world often goes through ups and downs of phases and fads, and the current view of sugar as the "root of all evil" is no different. Did you know that 51 percent of American adults report that they are trying to limit or avoid sugars when choosing foods and beverages? Some people go so far as to avoid fruits, or don't eat bread because they've been told it turns into sugar.
As nutritionists, our job is to sift through all the information out there to discern what is actually OK to consume when it comes to sugar, and to help you understand how its various types affect your body and weight.
