Added Sugar: Avoid the Poison

We need carbohydrates in our daily nutrition plan. But not all carbs are created equally. Added sugars, like table sugar and sugary beverages, contribute nothing to our bodies except dreaded weight gain and body fat. In fact, they are quite harmful to our health. Current nutrition guidelines recommend no more than 10% of our calorie intake to come from added sugars. But that is high. We should strive for less added sugars. Much less.
