The Sugar Habit - Ditching a Dangerous Routine
I've noted before a desire to eat healthier and promote better nutrition. In fact, following the information and conclusions of Dr. Robert Lustig, I once posted that "Sugar Is the Devil," and that isn't too far off the truth. It is a truly harmful component of the average diet, precisely because it is used to such excess. The sad part of America's sugar addiction and consumption is that so much of it is unintentional, as processed food makers have seen fit to slip sugar into nearly everything we eat, from ketchup to bread. Often this comes in the form of high fructose corn syrup - which has received plenty of bad press over the years, much of it deservingly so. For a little more information, summing up a lot of the conventional wisdom on sugar, check out Maura Kelly's piece How to Ditch the Sugar Habit, published in the Fitness Magazine on Yahoo Shine.
