Local television broadcaster, Channel 6, posted an article on their website regarding American’s out-of-control consumption of sugar.
According to the AMA, we average 22 tsp of sugar too much every day, most of which comes from soda.
In our Slimdown weight loss class, we advocate the importance of keeping it simple and nutrient dense!
Eating a diet rich in natural foods, such as fruits and vegetables - the most simple, nutrient dense foods on earth - is the easiest way to avoid overdoing the sugar calories.
I often tell my class that if you’ve been religiously consuming in excess of 3,000 calories a day and you switch to eating 1,500 calories of Twinkies, you will lose weight by simply creating a caloric deficit. However, you will get none of the nutrients necessary for your healty and satiety.
So, toss the sugar-laden Twinkie by the wayside and grab a banana! Your health and waistline will thank you for it!
