Sugar Over Load
If you didn't know, sugar, including high fructose corn syrup, is a major player in the obesity game. Sugar based drinks, like soda and energy drinks, attract people young and old. In the United States, consumer foods and products are known to use high-fructose corn syrup as a sweetener. It has become extremely common to prepare processed foods and beverages this way. Especially in the U.S., where we put it in everything from breads, cereals , yogurts , and as pharmaceutical coating. I took a sugar calculating survey on http://www.choosehealthla.com/multimedia/sugar-calculator/, and it informed me on how many packs of sugar I consume in a month, and year. This site also tells you how much you spend on sugar in a year. I find this site extremely helpful. Even though I limit my soda intake to three times a week, the numbers prove that all that sugar adds up. I strongly urge you to take the survey before its to late.
