Did you know that one of the most addictive substances known to man also happens to be in most foods and it is legal?  Dr Robert Lusting states that sugar has the same effect on our brain as cocaine.  That is just plain scary and gives good reason to break the cycle of addiction.  If there is one thing that you can give up that will have significant impact upon your health it has to be sugar.  Sugar can sap calcium from your bones and cause early onset osteoporosis.  Estimates show that we consume close to 130 pounds of sugar a year.  Fact: The USDA states that the average American consumes 156 pounds of added sugar.  An article was written in Forbes magazine about how we are basically killing ourselves with sugar and that we are just scratching the surface of the effects of sugar on our bodies.   Don't let this monster control your life, remove as many forms of sugar from your diet and you will be amazed at the results.

Each cube represents 4 grams of sugar approx 1 tsp.

Have a Coke and no smile!
