So you're probably thinking, I know this already. Sugar is bad. Right? But do we really know how bad? Let's start with the scary facts.
Want to take a guess on how much sugar the average American consumes every year?
First, two hundred years ago, the average American ate only 2 pounds of sugar a year.
In 1970, we ate 123 pounds of sugar per year.
Today, the average American consumes almost 152 pounds of sugar in one year! 152 pounds! That's almost 3 pounds per week!
Think of it this way, at the grocery we buy sugar in a 5-pound bag. Now take that home and consume over half the bag every week. We'd never do that right? Scary! But, sugar is so hidden in everything we eat, we don't realize it.
Have I sufficiently scared you already?
