More About Added Sugar

Nutrition-FactsFYI: It’s important to clear up an important point about sugar.  The recommendations of no more than 10% of calories from sugar in the 2015 Dietary Guidelines refers to added sugars, not the sugar found in other carbohydrate foods like bread, milk, vegetables, etc. The article only mentions the 2010 Dietary Guidelines. It is  proposed that the revised Nutrition Facts Panel in the future will provide the grams of added sugars.

What is Moderation?

What a great article on the word “moderation.” When it comes to healthy eating, it is much too simplistic and does not guide us in the right direction, aka, healthy eating. Much of this may come from our bland, weak Dietary Guidelines and the lack of “guts” from many diet professionals or those who feel compelled to follow the food industry messages. Thank you, Andy Bellatti for bringing it to our attention.
