Why does the food industry not make up its mind? We have people that work with the food industry that feel that sugar is a good thing and that we can cut back on the of amount of calories in we can stop the weight problem in the world.
The fact is that sugar is in everything from baby formula to soy milk, to season packets that you use in the soups that you make.
For a long time, we have been told that if we work out more and eat in moderation then we will lose the weight. If you look at what is in a container of soy milk you will find sugar being listed, as an ingredient. Now if you look at a container of baby formula and you will find that it is in there too. So if it is in the baby formula where would it not be. Would it be in sports drinks like Gatorade? So is sugar something that you really want in your diet? We all can have some but according to the World Health Organization, 6 teaspoons a day of sugar is a good amount that we should have. Now if you look how many teaspoons are in a can of soda (12 oz) there is about 10 teaspoons in it of sugar. Want to see an interesting picture, here is a carton of chocolate milk and the ingredients in it. Sugar in our Milk? Wait a minute! This is super strange.
Why don’t we eat real food? Don’t we know how to make real foods? Some people I know that don’t know how to and I have more than once offered to teach them how to make homemade food that is real good and they don’t take the offer up. The reason is that they claim that it takes too much time.
So what is more important, your time to cut things up and throw it in a crockpot and let it cook all day or your families health. I can throw the items that are needed to make homemade soup with almost no salt and no sugar what so ever in it. It tastes better than the stuff you buy in a can and throw in a microwave.
