Sugar mama

Hey babes!! ❤️🤗 I’m so sorry I’ve been away from the blogging world for the past two weeks. I’ve been studying my 🙊 off, but I’m so glad to be back!! That’s until my next test 💁🏼. Lets get down to business shall we. Sugar…. how much is too much!! The American Heart Association suggest men consuming 37.5 g/d and women to have 25 g/d. 

So for myself, 25g/d would be about 6 teaspoons a day. 

How sugar can effect you: 

  • Weight gain
  • Obesity 
  • High blood pressure
  • High blood sugar 
  • High levels of triglycerides 
  • High levels of uric acid levels 
  • You can become insulin resistant (type II diabetes) 
  • It’s additive 
  • No essential nutrients 
  • Fructose overload in the liver (fatty liver disease)

Did you know:  


Welch’s fruit snacks have 11g of sugar=2.75 teaspoons 


1 liter of Coca Cola is about 102 grams of sugar=20 teaspoons of sugar 


The Starbucks new cinnamon roll is also contains the same amount of sugar as 1 Coca Cola liter. That’s crazy!!


The flavor pumps at Starbucks has 5g of sugar per 1 pump. 


I do love Greek yogurt, but Chobanis fruit on the bottom yogurt has 15g of sugar in one container. 


To my fruit worshippers 🙏 who know this as well, fruit is not bad for you!! 

Fruit contains natural sugar, but also is packed with disease fighting vitamins and minerals. Within the correct portion size (2 1/2- 6 1/2) cups per day, fruit is a major food group. Let’s not forget it’s also recommended by the USDA 😉

Don’t forget it’s all about portion size (diabetic patients ask doctor). 

Have a great day guys!!

    HI, Jennifer! Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post on using Vitamin C for a healthy immune system. I am enjoying my visit to yours. Regarding sugar, a good rule to remember is that one teaspoon of sugar is about 4 grams. That way folks can always convert those tricky grams readings to actual teaspoons that they use and understand.
