SUGAR:

BY EVERY OTHER NAME // EAT.  IT.  SPARINGLY.

 
At this point in time we all know that consistently eating items with added sugars are a detriment to our overall health.  The challenge is that it  is in everything from chocolate cake to condiments.  Most of the time we are unaware of it's presence, but this list should help you find your way.  It is imperative that you read nutrition labels carefully, but your best bet is to to stick primarily to unprocessed whole foods that are not in a bag or a box.  If any of these ingredients is in the first seven ingredients do not buy it or eat it sparingly.
