Hope everyone has been having a wonderful holiday season & getting ready to celebrate the new year in a few days!

Remember that it’s ok this time of year to enjoy food & drink that you don’t normally consume in moderation, but afterwards you should regain your focus to optimize your health.

Today I would like to discuss added sugar with you.

Added sugar is sugar added to processed food & it is not the inherent sugar content that comes from natural ingredients.

Focus on trying to keep total added sugar to no more than 1 TBSP a day to help prevent these negative health concerns:

*Increases inflammation
*Higher risk of heart disease
*Increases blood sugar
*Higher risk of type II diabetes
*Disrupts your gut microbiome
*Causes weight gain
*Increases cravings
*Lower bioavailibly of vitamins & minerals
*May lead to fatty liver disease
*May increase risk of depression

If you do need to add sugar, focus on natural sources like honey, maple syrup or low glycemic fruit like blueberries.
