30 Day Health Challenge Day 23

Day 23: No Artificial Sugars. You should all be pros at this one by now! #platinumchirochallenge

Below are some illustrations from the National Geographic article "Sugar Love" by Richard Cohen in the August 2013 issue. 22.7 teaspoons a day! That "is how much sugar the average American eats each day." As you can see in the illustrations, the American Heart Association's recommended daily limit for an adult male is 9 tsp. This amount is shown via the blue line. Take a look at how much of that daily limit is met with only 8 oz of low fat fruit yogurt.
