Is Sugar Sabotaging Your Goals?


Fruit popsicles melting. Strawberry, kiwi, blueberry, pomegranate.

This sugar stat caught me by surprise… and I thought I already knew a LOT about sugar.


👉Eating just 100 calories a day of sugar (which is about 25 grams of added sugars, or 6 teaspoons) is linked to 45 DIFFERENT negative health outcomes.


Here’s a quick rundown of how much (or how little!) sugar that is:


● 1 can (12 fl oz) of regular soda

● 1 cup (250 ml) of chocolate milk

● 1 cup (245 g) of sweetened yogurt

● 2 Tbsp of honey

● 2 Tbsp of maple syrup

● 2 Tbsp of regular ketchup

● 1 small glazed doughnut

● 2 small cookies

● 1 small candy bar


And just for clarification — that’s not all of those things combined. Each one of those items contains about 25 grams of added sugars.


And here are some of the negative health outcomes linked with a high sugar intake:


● Heart disease

● Diabetes

● Obesity

● Asthma

● Depression

● Some types of cancer (including breast, prostate, & pancreatic)

● Gout

● High blood pressure

● Stroke

● Obesity

● Liver disease

● High cholesterol

● Tooth decay

● Death


In a study published in the BMJ earlier this year, researchers recommended eating less than 25 grams of sugar a day AND keeping sugary beverage intake to less than 1 a week (about 200-355 ml or ⅔ - 1½ cups).


So what should you do about this?


It’s true: Quitting sugar cold turkey can be tough. Also, swearing off ANY food is unsustainable for most of us.
