Avoiding Sugar

Question: I try to eat healthy and avoid sweets. Sort of going on an all fruits and vegetables diet what more can I do?

Answer: Many people say that they don't eat sweets.  Although they may avoid the obvious sources of sugar such as soft drinks, cookies, candy and desserts, they may not realize how much sugar they are getting from other sources....(including that fruit you are talking about eating).  Sugar is the number 1 additive in processed foods.  It is used in bread, crackers, catsup, cereals, spaghetti sauce, bouillon cubes, non-dairy creamers, cured meats, you name it!  And it goes by many hidden names, fructose, dextrose, honey, maple or corn syrup, molasses.  If you want to cut down even more on hidden sweets, it pays to become a label reader.
