Good information, it can be so hard to monitor all the sugar in things.

It isn't easy to limit sugar as it is everywhere. But I'm trying. Like the charts to see what the average for some products would be.

I’ve been on a serious kick to healthy and lose weight. I can tell from looking at your list my Sugar intake is very low. I’ve lost 24 pounds and when the sugar finally left my tummy almost went flat. Since I’m almost 60 that’s amazing.

The other day when I was at the store looking for almond butter, I couldn't find one without sugar. I saw sugar listed in the ingredient list but showed only 1 or 2 grams listed on the nutrition label. I didn't buy any. Instead I made my own. Which didn't turn out creamy at all. Taste is good though.

Reducing my sugar intake resulted in a fifteen pound weight reduction. I was surprised (when I started reading labels) how much added sugar were in some many foods.

This is going to be a real challenge because any artificial sweetener I've tried makes me ill. Still, she perseveres.

Best way to know how much sugar there is in something is to make it yourself. Makes you really realise how much there really is.

Sugar needs a warning label like cigarettes.

This advice is alright for those without diabetes. But for anyone with diabetes anything over 5 grams of sugar is too much, or you're pushing it, at least. And almost EVERYTHING has sugar in it, you have to look at the label and the portion size to make sure you're not overdoing it. Even if you don't have diabetes you still need to be careful.
