In today’s day and age it is really hard to stay away from sugar. The average person consumes around 300 calories from added sugar every day. We get this from cakes, candy, soda and even other processed foods like salad dressing, pasta and even yogurt.
We live in the age of processed foods, so we should all try harder to keep these empty calories away from our diet. We should try to get our recommended daily intake of 6 Tablespoons of sugar from natural sources like fruits and the like.
