How Much Sugar Is Too Much?

Reducing Your Sugar Intake Can Restore Optimal Health

Over the course of the past several decades, food manufactures discovered that increasing the amount of sugars in our food and beverages not openly made them cheaper to produce, but also made them irresistible to most customers. The resulting spike in obesity among people in the US and worldwide has caused alarm among health care professionals.

Too Much Sugar

For optimal weight and health, sugars and solid fats should account for no more than 5% to 15% of the average person’s daily diet, according to the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. That’s about 8 tablespoons of added sugar per day based on a 2,000 calorie daily diet. But today, most people get an average of 800 calories per day from sugars and solid fats – or about 35% of their entire daily caloric intake. No wonder obesity has become a global epidemic!

Sugars, Hidden and Otherwise

Sugars – especially high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) – are found in many of the foods and beverages we consume. Not just candies, cookies and other sweets, but also prepared foods, fast foods, and especially soda pop. The amount of HFCS in a single serving of soda pop, “energy” drinks, and other popular beverages is staggering!

Get Your Body Back!

Consuming this amount of sugar on a daily basis not only boosts caloric intake, but can throw many of the body’s natural hormones out of balance. The resulting spikes in blood sugar can wreak havoc on the body’s natural function, causing mood swings, increased hunger, and other physical and emotional problems. Reducing the amount of sugars you consume is part of the answer to restoring the body’s natural hormonal balance. Another element is determining specifically what’s going on in your body. Our NutriMost Resonant Frequency technology uses a quick, painless scan of your body to determine which of your body’s 800 hormones are out of balance.
