Americans have become addicted to sugar which is leading to our obesity crisis as well as diseases such as Type 2 Diabetes, Cancer and Alzheimer’s. Try to avoid processed food. When you must purchase processed food, read the label to confirm there is no sugar or artificial sweetener added.

Good carbs. Bad carbs. Remember that vegetables and fruits are also carbohydrates. They are the good guys. Bad carbs are those that cause our blood sugar to rise dramatically with little or no nutritional value. These include, pasta, rice, corn, white potatoes and bread.
