Sugar is everywhere. Once confined to candy, desserts, and the sugar bowl, it has made its way into our peanut butter, bread, tomato sauce, and salad dressing. The average American eats nearly 130 pounds of added sugar a year, and 75 percent of 86,000 foods analyzed in one study contained added sweeteners. This information is now at the forefront of media, public policy, and water cooler conversation, and Americans are wising up to what a sugar-laden diet means for their health: added pounds that won't budge; heightened risk of Alzheimer's, diabetes, and heart disease; moodiness; fatigue; and cravings that seem to rule their daily lives.
