I have a sweet tooth and we are in a constant battle. I do my best to eat chocolate and cupcakes in total moderation, but every so often, my sweet tooth gets the best of me and I succumb to the pleasures of that which is full of sugar. I'm a personal trainer, but I'm also human.
I'm also a bit more aware of sugar now, thanks to a handy list that I got from my Blue Heron instructor. Sugar, as it turns out, has a variety of names. And it can be found in everything, which means you'll need to read food labels diligently if you are trying to limit your intake.
Look for these ugly monikers:
high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, glucose, fructose, sucrose, molasses, honey, sorghum, dextrose, lactose, maltose, galactose and concentrated grape juice.
My list stopped there, but there may be more. Know any?
