Sugar intake is a huge problem with the American diet and it is having detrimental effects on our health.
Even if you intentionally limit your sugar intake, there are hidden sugars in so many common foods that many of us eat on a daily basis.
We know there is sugar in cakes, candy and ice cream but there's also sugar in things like yogurt, cereal, nutrition bars and sauces.
The American Heart Association recommends women consume no more than 25 grams of sugar per day (37.5 grams for men). Read ingredient labels and limit your sugar intake.
Look for other names that mean sugar and should be calculated in your 25 grams of sugar per day.
Sucrose (Dry sugar)
Evaporated can sugar (Syrups)
High fructose corn syrup
Track your sugar intake every day for the next 5 days. You'd be surprised at your daily sugar intake and could be the cause of many common ailments.

My buddy David Begg launched @RealKombucha to combat this very point.
It doesn't matter if you're the designated driver, pregnant, trying to be more conscious of what you're putting in your body or in a difficult relationship with alcohol. The choices on offer to a non-drinker verge on being criminal.
You'll find well over 10 teaspoons of sugar in a ginger ale. Can you imagine spooning that into your mouth from a dish No So why would you drink it
I was once told by the CEO of a leading pub chain that non-drinkers can, "drink Diet Coke or fuck off". And they wonder why their pubs are closing.
With such a large percentage of Britain developing a more healthy relationship with booze, it's time for the "that'll do" attitude to be kicked into the long grass.
Real Kombucha, @luckysaintbeer, @bigdropbrewco, @everleafdrinks... they're all offering real change, putting non-drinkers at the top of the list. Give them a follow if you're in agreement with this post.

Saftiger Apfelkuchen mit Streusel
Für den Mürbeteig Boden
125 g Butter
100 g Zucker
1 Pck. Vanillezucker
250 g Mehl (550)
1/2 Pck. Backpulver
1 Prise Salz
Für den Belag
800 g Äpfel
1 Prise Zimt
Für die Streusel
125 g Butter (zimmerwarm)
80 g Zucker
1 Pck. Vanillezucker
200 g Mehl (550)
1 Prise Salz
Für den Teig Butter, Zucker, Vanillezucker, Ei, Mehl, Backpulver und Salz miteinander verkneten. Den Teig in Frischhaltefolie wickeln und 60 min kalt stellen.
Den Ofen auf 180 Grad (Umluft 160 Grad) vorheizen. Eine Springform (26 cm Durchmesser) gut einfetten. Den Teig aus dem Kühlschrank nehmen. Auf leicht bemehlter Arbeitsfläche rund ausrollen bis er etwas größer ist als die Springform. Den Teig in die Form legen und mit zwei Fingern zurecht drücken, bis ein etwa 3 cm hoher Rand entstanden ist.
Für die Füllung Äpfel schälen, Kerngehäuse entfernen und würfeln. In einer Schüssel mit Zimt und Zitronensaft vermengen. Apfelwürfel auf dem Teig verteilen.
Für die Streusel Butter, Zucker, Vanillezucker, Mehl und Salz kurz zu groben Streuseln kneten und auf dem Kuchen verteilen. Kuchen im vorgeheizten Backofen 55-60 min backen. Vollständig auskühlen lassen und dann erst aus der Form lösen.
Bon Appetite 😊

The 3 Ingredients in Your Coffee. After Just 2 Sips, Your Metabolism Will Be Faster Than Ever!
Also, only a few know that you can transform your favorite morning brew into a metabolism booster and a potent fat burner! All you need to do is to add several ingredients to your coffee, and it will help you burn extra pounds without changing your diet or lifestyle!
These three mighty ingredients include:
1. Coconut oil: It is a real natural miracle which has a wide range of uses. It contains medium-chain fatty acids, which are immediately sent to the liver by the digestive system, and are either converted to energy or ketone bodies, and not in fat. It sets the metabolism to burn fat faster and more efficiently
The burning process of fats is significantly affected by minerals and vitamins, so honey can be of great help, as this gift of nature contains them in high amounts, and prevents any mineral or vitamin deficiencies.
2. Honey: It is abundant in sugar, but a natural one, which is needed for energy. Moreover, it is rich in vitamin B6, folate, vitamin C, niacin, and riboflavin, as well as numerous minerals, such as iron, calcium, sodium, zinc, potassium, and phosphorus.
Honey has been scientifically confirmed to be able to lower stress and regulate blood cholesterol levels. Use raw honey only.
3. Cinnamon: It is an extremely beneficial, anti-inflammatory agent which fights inflammation in the body, and due to its antioxidant properties, neutralizes the damage caused by free radicals.
Cinnamon boosts the blood sugar metabolism and thus lowers blood sugar levels. It prevents the accumulation of fat in the body as it supports the conversion of sugar into energy. The best cinnamon types are Ceylon and Cassia.
