9. Eating Too Much Sugar
It is apparent that added sugar can be found everywhere at the store including sweets, sodas sauces, condiments, Pizza frozen, bread, and soups. It is recommended that the American Heart Association recommends not more than nine teaspoons (36 grams) of sugar added each day for men and not greater than six teaspoons (25 grams) of sugar added daily for women.
However, the majority of Americans consume 24 teaspoons of sugary added every day, as per Harvard Health. Not only can excessive sugar consumption increase risk of weight gain and Type 2 Diabetes, it can also increase the chances of suffering from heart disease.
A simple way to cut down on sugary drinks is to:
Do not drink any drinks that contain liquid calories, like soft drinks as well as other drinks that are sugary.
Concentrate on reducing the amount of items that contain sugar on the ingredient label , or look up the nutritional facts.
Consume more foods that are not processed, such as whole fruits, grains and vegetables, nuts/seeds and protein that is lean.
