The average American eats about 17 teaspoons of added sugar each day — way above the recommended average for men, women or children.
Just in time to coincide with New Years resolutions, the New York Times has come out with a 7-day sugar challenge. Each day of the challenge shows participants a different way to cut out added sugar. The idea is to develop healthy habits that can be maintained throughout the year.
7-Day Sugar Challenge
Day 1 – A no-sugar morning
Day 2 – Real food vs. packaged food
Day 3 – Eat Fruit
Day 4 – Stop drinking your flavors
Day 5 – Spice it up
Day 6 – Sweeten your vegetables
Day 7 – A chocolate reward
