The Bitter Sweet About Sugar

Any idea how much sugar you eat in a year? The average America consumes 156 pounds of sugar and only 29 is from traditional sugar. The rest is hidden in your food and drink.

Too much sugar puts you at risk for diabetes, reduced brain function and weight gain. Sugar is powerful and addictive. It can even trick your brain into using sugar as a reward.

During this 1-hour workshop, learn how to recognize and counter this response plus how to find the hidden sugar sources on food labels, to make more informed choices. The program instructor is a registered dietitian.

Wellness Tip: Beware of “low-fat” labels. Some “low-fat” products are loaded with sugar, so they have similar calories as their “regular” counterpart.
