Ceesie just watched a documentary about the huge amount of sugar we put in our body on a daily basis and I was SHOCKED.
Did you know that every year a human eats about 45 kilograms of sugar?
I know we all like to have a little bit of sweet in our morning coffee, so does Ceesie, and that one spoon won't hurt us, but the average sugar intake in the USA is 30 teaspoons per person per day!!!
Just to give you an idea, a single can of coke has 39 teaspoons of sugar and a small pack of M&M's may be more than you should have in a day. So imagine how much more we ask our poor body to digest.
Ceesie has to confess that he has a huge sweet tooth himself, every night after my dinner I NEED to have something sweet. I'm probably a sugar addict, like so many others, without even knowing it.
It's disturbing what too much sugar does to a human body: Heart disease, weight gain, diabetes, liver failure, cancer, kidney disease, addiction,…
I know it's hard to resist those sour patch kids, reese's cup cakes, that caramel popcorn while watching a movie or that delicious peanut butter jelly sandwich in the morning, but I think we should all start 2015 with a great New Year's resolution; to eat less sugar and to think about our body before putting another skittle between our teeth, cause we might end up with none when we reach 60.
