Sugar Anyone?

A viral email was sent to me this week with 18 pictures of food/drinks and the amount of sugar each item contained, represented by a cube of sugar (equivalent to 1 tsp of sugar or 4.2 grams). The tagline was “We know the facts, but this brings it into perspective quickly, doesn’t it?”

Kudos to the person who took the time to put together this illustration – if you see this post, please contact me so I can give credit where credit is due.

Don’t forget – there is a difference between natural sugars found in fruit and processed sugars in soda and candy.  However, for people with blood sugar issues, fructose can cause spikes.
