Have you ever had met someone and suddenly found yourself running into them everywhere? No matter where you turn, they're suddenly unavoidable.
Now imagine we're not talking about a person, but food. If there's any one food that seems to show up at every turn and sneak its way into everything, it's sugar. It's no coincidence that obesity rates around the world are rising as the amount of sugar we eat spikes dramatically, as well. From sports drinks to sweets to condiments, we're all eating significantly more sugar than we should, and many of us don't even realize we're doing it. Sadly, considering just how addictive the sweet stuff can be, the only thing that might slow us down is if it becomes unavailable, but it looks like that day might be drawing near. According to the United States Department of Agriculture, sugar consumption will soon outpace production, likely meaning it may be replaced with even less healthy alternatives, like high fructose corn syrup.
So where could sugar be hiding in your diet and what is it really doing to your body? Read up on the 45 Surprise Foods Loaded With Sugar and find out the 40 Reasons to Ditch Refined Sugar!
