Foods High In Sugar To Avoid

I hope you've had a chance to think about the tips I have written about over the last week. My goal is to share information with you that can really help you make decisions about products and foods you are choosing and their impact on daily health and life.

I know there is so much we need to know these days and we all lead such busy lives that hopefully this kind of information is useful, timely, and relevant.

I have spoken at length of the role the too much sugar in the diet has in causing a myriad of health issues and especially how it relates to affecting the health of your skin.

I spoke about the names added sugar goes by recently, so you could take the time to look at your labels of package foods you have and how much sugar you consume just from these products alone.

Often, it isn't the teaspoon of sugar one puts in their coffee but the hidden sugars we consume that add up to problems.

I promised I would give you a list of specific foods with hidden sugars, so you could easily recognize them and check the labels of the foods you buy. As promised, here they are.

Energy drinks, bottled tea, bottled coffee drinks, sports drinks, and even some vitamin waters. I once had a client who I was working with who kept having acne breakouts but SWORE he had cut out all sugar.

One day a fellow employee pointed out that he was drinking sports drinks (Gatorade) which are full of sugar. To make a long story short, he nixed the sports drinks for the sugar free version and boom, acne stopped and never returned!

Low Fat foods such as low-fat yogurt, ice cream, and salad dressings, all contain excessive sugar and sodium. Even some of the healthier frozen dinners by Healthy Choice and Lean Cuisine are high in sugar as are most plain frozen vegetables.

Most Ketchup also contains added sugar. Peanut butter usually contains four or five grams of added sugar.

The other foods with hidden sugar include barbecue sauce, sweet pickles, packaged cereals, granola bars, crackers, waffles, canned fruit, applesauce, and most breads. There are of course substitutes and low or no sugar added versions of these, again you will just have to check labels and make choices.

I wanted you to know the common foods that have all this extra sugar. By being aware and slowly reducing (if not totally eliminating) these items from your diet, you will be able to make a huge difference.

I always like to give everyone more access to information that you can use today so visit the next link below to get step-by-step information on how to keep your skin healthy, clear, and eternally youthful looking!

Don't forget about salad dressing Chris!
I am an ingredient reader by habit.
Almost 90% of your commercial salad dressings have some form of sugar, whether it's high fructose corn syrup or just plain sugar.

Salad dressing was mentioned in the article. High fructose corn syrup is in almost everything. Whenever I avoid foods containing hfcs my skin doesn't breakout.
