"Did you know every American consumes 130 pounds of sugar each year? The American Heart Association’s current guidelines for added sugar are up to 100 calories (6 teaspoons) per day for women and 150 calories (9 teaspoons) for men. Based on the data, it’s safe to say that Americans are going way overboard when it comes to sugar."Response: Yes, Americans ingest a startling amount of sugar each year, but keep in mind that this number is just an average.
...which means for every no sugar person there's someone eating twice the average.
I added a no sugar recipe to this page.
