Do you keep track of your sugar intake?  Did you know that the American Heart Association recommends only 25 grams for women and 35 grams for men per day?  A banana alone has 18 grams, and I eat those daily. Shockingly, the average American eats their body weight in sugar each year.  Here are some other names of sugar you should look for in all of the foods you buy and avoid the item if it has any of these names in the top 3 ingredients.

My Sugar-Free Life
Here we go!  It's day one and my first challenge is not feeling sad over not including my favorite coffee creamer in my coffee this morning.  I drink decaf so for me it's not about the caffeine fix... it's clearly about the coffee creamer!  Skim milk will have to do.  I'm wondering if I'm going to be sad a lot, if I'm going to be wanting that little bit of something sweet even more so than usual because "I can't have it" or if this will be an empowering experience.

Ah February, the month of hearts and chocolate. If you are going to indulge or give your sweetheart chocolates for Valentine’s Day, stick to dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has more benefits for your heart. Research shows that dark chocolate can help maintain cardiovascular health, provide antioxidant benefits and alleviate stress. Among other nutrients, heart healthy bioflavanoids (aka flavanoids) are found in dark chocolate and red wine. Romantic right? A perfect combination for Valentine’s Day. As with anything in life quality matters.

Sugar Substitute ~ SPLENDA .... VERY IMPORTANT READ FOR EVERYONE. I just had a in-depth conversation last night with a friend that has been suffering from severe migraine headaches and vertigo issues, as well as complication with tinnitus, as we spoke I realized it was some of the same symptoms that I had experienced years ago, and which my doctor misdiagnose. But hearing what she had to say, and the pain, suffering and fear she had and was going through made me decided to do more research.
