The American Academy of Pediatrics posted this in the recent issue of their newsletter: The American Heart Association has released new guidance recommending that youths ages 2 to 18 should have only 6 teaspoons or 25 grams of any sugars used in processing and preparing foods or beverages, added to foods at the table or eaten separately, and should drink no more than 8 ounces of sugar-sweetened beverages per week. The guidelines in the journal Circulation also advised against any added sugar intake for children younger than age 2.
That amounts to an AVERAGE of LESS THAN one teaspoon of sugar per day! Recommending a limit of as little as one single teaspoon a day… they obviously understand the extent of the problem AND have a good idea that sugar is the culprit. Don’t you wonder what the recommendation is for adults? Clearly sugar creates an abundance of health disasters, each of which can be sidestepped by simply not eating it. Try to adhere to these guidelines for a SINGLE WEEK. Can you do it?
