Do you know the difference between natural sugars and added sugars? If not, it’s worth your while finding out as it could make all the difference to your weight and your health.This is something I get asked about a lot and I totally understand how it causes so much confusion! The World Health Organisation recently advised that we should reduce our current sugar intake by 50 per cent. This is easier said than done, particularly because a lot of our sugar intake is consumed unknowingly. But, once you become sugar savvy, it will be easy to reduce your intake.
For a quick guide, take a look at the video below, you’ll be shocked by just how much sugar is added to seemingly healthy foods that you probably eat every day! This is one of the best nutrition videos I’ve seen in a long time, it’s short, sweet (pardon the pun J) and to the point!
Note: unfortunately the video is in flash so will NOT play on your iphone or ipad. However here is the link to where it may work http://www.prevention.com/prevention-videos/sugar-showdown-whole-vs-processed-foods
